Milan – Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Jamuna, Pran, Surendranath, Deven Varma – Classic Bollywood Movie

Death is inevitable, certain We believe that if the desires remain
unfulfilled, then man is reborn But remembering events
of the previous birth… happens to one in millions This story is about
one such young man… who had complete knowledge
ofhis previous birth Attention ! l’m happy and honoured to say that
two of our intelligent students… Gopinath and Radha Devi … have succeeded not only
in examinations but also in life We also witnessed their marriage,
which was a great pleasure l’ve known them very closely.
Their lives, their love… is as divine as
our perennial holy Ganges Like their academic successes, may
they also be successful in marriage This is my blessing.
For here, begins the real life ”Happy married life to
Radha Devi and Gopinath” Long live Friend, sweating overthe start?
What lies ahead? Come on, heave!
We’ve had a nice feast! ”Forever, you and l
have sung the song oflove” ”Forever, may we sing together” ”Forever, you and l
have been loving mates” ”Foreverwe shall be in love” ”Forever, you and l
have sung the song oflove” ”Forever, may we sing together” ”Forever cloudcast,
the harbinger of rains…” ”brought you into my arms” ”And say it forever
ere the rain stops” ”Ere the rain stops” ”Foreverwe tore down barriers…” ”foreverwe have been in love” ”Forever, we have been united
on either side of the river oflife” ”Forever l have spurned
the riches of the world…” ”forever l have yearned
foryour love” ”Forever, you and l
have sung the song oflove” ”Forever, may we sing together” Stop the boat Don’t you hear? l say, stop the boat!
-What’s it Gopi? Stop! There’s a whirlpool ahead.
We’ll drown! Whirlpool? We’ll drown?
What times are you talking about? Everything has changed. A huge
dam has been built on the river Boats have given way to motorboats.
Where’s the danger of drowning? You are worrying for no reason.
– Don’t argue! Do as l say Darling, what’s all this? He wants to drown us…
he wants to kill us Radha, tell him to stop the boat.
-All right darling, relax Stop the boat.
-As you wish Gopi, what has come overyou
all of a sudden? What are you thinking?
Tell me There should be a landlord’s
mansion somewhere around And… the lady…. Yes! The lady! Madam! ln the haunt of ghosts you search
for a human being? Who are you? Baba, l am Gopi.
-Who Gopi? The boatman, who used to take the
lady to the other side of the river Why are you laughing?
-Won’t l laugh on such a joke? No jokes, l’m telling the truth.
– Really? Trying to fool an old man? Very bad. Boatman Gopi died
even before you were born Do you know that?
– l know. l know everything l was Gopi, the boatman. lt was me.
Tell me, where is the lady? Gopi! What’s all this?
What’s come overyou? Tell me where is the lady?
-Which lady? The landlord’s daughter?
-Yes, she’s the one You think she’s still alive?
She drowned in the Ganges years ago lndeed… she drowned in the Ganges And…. Baba, what happened to that girl
who used to graze cattle… and roam around the entire village?
-You mean Gauri? Gauri…? Yes, Gauri.
What happened to her? The poorthing is still alive.
-What did you say? Gauri is alive? Where is she? How is she?
– She’s as good as a living corpse Fate tormented her no end What she did to save Radha and
Gopi, no other girl would have What did she do?
-Ask what she did not do Honour, woman’s priceless asset…
she sacrificed even that Because Rajendra asked for her
honour as a price to spare Gopi and Radha But sir, she was deceived.
She was betrayed Gopi and Radha did not survive.
And Rajendra… he slipped away to the city Know what Gauri got in return
for her sacrifice? Kicks, abuses, humiliations Yet, God knows
why she is still alive Wonderwhat hopes keep her alive.
Wonderwho she is waiting for Where is Gauri now?
-At the riverbank… beside the graves of Radha and Gopi Gopi… didn’t l tell you? lfl die, it’ll be in your arms And that hope keeps me alive Death has been calling out to me But hope holds me back But… how long can l defy death? l’m leaving… tired and distraught My dream of dying in your arms
remain undone l’m leaving forever l know for sure now,
you will not come, Gopi You’re not coming!
– Gauri! l’m here, Gauri.
Look at me… your Gopi is here Gauri, you have won Look Gauri, you are in Gopi’s arms Yes Gauri, l’m Gopi l’m Gopi… yes Gauri Gopi! What’s going on?
Please tell me. lt’s killing me What’s all this? Who’s Gauri?
– Radha, you don’t know about Gauri She always had a smile on her lips
… smile, like a blossom Like a deer she used
to strut around the village She was the melody of the streams,
she was as naughty as a little brat Radha, she’s the one ”O ignorant lover of mine…” ”you have no idea…” ”because of you l have become

of the river. He flatly refused me So l used my catapult on him. And
he hit me here, here, and everywhere All because of me. Now l’m here.
Let’s go Madam…
-You neverforget the flower, Gopi How would he? The first thing in the
morning he does is to hide the rose Of course. Else this thief robs it.

-What? l’m here to fish.
– l see. Then take this What are you staring at?
– Salt and sugar! Salt and sugar…?
-Your voice is sugary But you’re salted.
-What did you say? l mean, your song has ruined me.
l’m destroyed My heartstrings are still strumming.
– Really? Let me check Good Lord! Not heartstrings,
it’s a drum beating inside When your love is true,
your heartbeats beat like a drum ls that so?
-Yes Gauri But that oaf Gopi ruined all the fun
yesterday. Know how your pair seemed? Like a crow dancing with a
flamingo. You and l would’ve made a better pair So you know how to dance, too?
-Ask me what l don’t know l’m from the city.
l know all types of dances So Gauri, how did you like my
dance? – Good Lord! She’s got the itchweed! Great! Superb performance! Your
dance was so good l felt as if… He’s a goner!
– l felt as if… lt’s itching!
-Yes Keep dancing Only one thing can cure it.
Droppings… of a buffalo Go and get it quick!
-At once, sir! But l can’t get any without money.
– Take it from my pocket! Go and come back at once! Madam, you sent for me?
-Yes Gopi, once second Oh yes… my flower? Here you are Take it What’s this, madam?
– Check it out All these for me?
– l can’t wearthem, can l? But madam…
-You like them? Tomorrow is your birthday.
lt’s a gift from me What happened?
– Madam, l thought… no one bothered ifl live or die,
no one cared for my joys and sorrows l thought none had anything
to do with me. But today… l’m touched by the love you’ve
shown. – So must you weep? Madam, how come
you remembered my birthday? You neverforget, to bring me
flowers, to help me cross the river, everyday So how can l forget your birthday?
-You’re beyond compare Gopi, how old will you be tomorrow?
– l have no idea, madam But you were born before me, no?
-Yes, that’s right That’s because Mother Ganges told
me that l got to help you cross the river So l was born before you as a
boatman. – l feel, in your previous birth… you must surely have been a poet.
– Poet? Who is that? A poet is one who writes poems.
-You mean a song writer? Yes, like Valmiki and Kalidas.
– Kalidas, the shepherd? Right.
– Then l am him. But… l’m not a shepherd because
you needed a boatman in this birth lt’s true, madam.
l swear by you Really Sit quietly, Gopi.
-A little harder, grandma l can’t, baby.
– Grandma, you’re too old now Grandma, that’s not the way to do it.
Step aside, l’ll show you Here comes the wrestler.
Come on, try your strength Sit straight, will you?
– Gauri, don’t be too gentle l got work to do. Hurry it up.
– l can’t. You’re so broad What l’ll do is rub half
your back today and half next time Forgive me, please. Just get
the water and pour it on me Gopi, shall l scrub you once more?
– Go ahead Stay right here!
– Grandma! Get the water, fast! Sit!
– Grandma, quick! Madam… look… the clothes you gave me.

– Go on, take it. l cooked foryou… on your birthday Madam… Go on, Gopi Mr Gopi… Mr Gopi… l called you. You’re Gopi, aren’t

– l’ve already given you one Then what is it?
– lt’s in English English…?
-Yes. Here… ”Lo-letter in English” A love-letter?
-Yes, ”Lo-letter” You wrote it?
-You’re amazing! lfl were literate, by now l’d have
written you a thousand ”Lo-letters” ldiot. Who gave you this? That guy from your college…
fair, shorty… what’s his name? He has a lengthy name…
– Rambabu Rambabu, yes.
He gave you this ”Lo-letter” D’you know what a love-letter is?
-Yes, that guy told me Told what?
– He said, ”Lo-letter”… is something that you write
to someone you like the most Silly, love-letter means
”prem-patr”. – Prem-patr…? What does ”Patr” mean?
– Patr is a Letter And what is ”Prem”?
– Prem means Love So what is ”Prem-patr”?
– Love-letter Love in a letter…? What’s that?
-Your head My head…? Forget it,
read the letter, please What’s the matter, madam?
– This isn’t how you write a letter Written something rash?
– lf my parents find out… they’ll kill me!
– Good Lord! That guy said otherwise He said it’s nice and wonderful.
He also gave me ten bucks And you took it? All right, don’t ever do this again.
– Never madam Had l been in your place,
l’d have slapped him on his face Radha…
– l’ll freshen up and come, Ma All right Books lying everywhere. Colleges
don’t teach discipline anymore Good Lord!
Do you hear? Do you hear? Where are you? Look at what she is upto
in the name of studies When l objected, no one bothered.
-What happened? lt’s going to happen now. Ridicule,
disparage! They’re going to spit on us Shut up!
– Sure, but you can’t shut people up Look at your daughter dear’s works Dear darling Radha, those
sweet words still ring in my ears That smile of yours…
-Where did you find it? lnside your darling daughter’s book.
Now you understand? Understand what, sister? Let me
know. – Radha is writing love-letters now Fine. Nothing to worry. Firstly, it’s
her age, secondly, she’s in college You have no idea, colleges have
become a haunt for dating and wedding Let me see Great penmanship, and expert lines.
We were not so expressive in ourtimes Very good! Smart gentleman.
– Rajendra! Don’t get worked up,
brother-in-law. Peace, relax. lf you act in haste… things will turn worse. lt’s a case
oflove. Leave it to me. l’ll fix it Only a wise man like me
can solve this problem Yes brother.
Only you can save our honour now l’ll come after some time Mr Gopi! Tell me,
what did Radha say? Close your eyes before l tell you.
– Don’t torture me. Here l go Dare you do that again, l’ll break
your bones! And here’s your money Hey mister… are you Rambabu?
-Yes. Why? l’m Radha’s uncle.
– Uncle…? Uncle, mercy! No mercy! Don’t try to con me.
Close your eyes, rememberyour parents What for?
– l’m going to break yourteeth Wait! They’re already shaken.
Let them fall in place first Shut up! Rememberyour parents.
One… two… ln the name of King Vishwanath Rai
and Queen Durgavati! Come again. Yourfather’s name?
– King Vishwanath Rai Goodness! So you’re Mr Rai’s son?
-Yes And who’s Jagannath Rai?
– l’m his younger brother Good. Embrace me.
– No, you’ll crush me Who dares harm the scion
of the Rai family? Yourfather is dead, isn’t it?
-Yes Mothertoo…?
-Yes Very good. So you and your brother
share the properties? Equal shareholders.
-What must be your share? Around 2 to 2.5 million.
-Very good. You madly love Radha, no? Madly? She’s dearerto me than
the earth, the skies and my life Life goes for peanuts these days.
D’you love her more than your money? Money? Money means dirt to me
in comparison to Radha Can you give me a small share
of yourwealth? What…?
– Mr Rambabu, gone are the times… when they used to be proud
giving their lives for love’s sake Today, everything is weighed and
tagged with a price. lf you wish… l can fix this wedding in a trice.
– Can you, really? What a question!
l told you, l’m her uncle Then yourwish will be done.
-Very good One second.
– No matter how you flatter me… l’m taking my money in advance.
– Certainly. But is it confirmed? Hundred percent l’ve killed two birds with one stone.
– Birds? But you can’t kill lions Brother-in-law, you underrate me.
But l’ll dispel this misconception l have found a perfect suitor
for Radha. He’s of the Rai family What a boy! Tall, fair and
handsome. Moreover, he’s doing his graduation But that’s a very affluent family.
How can we expect an alliance there? But we can certainly
bring them down on their knees But we must ask Radha.
She must like him, too Her liking! She’ll write a pile
oflove-letters by that time! You can read them at leisure then! Don’t be unromantic, sister He’s the one who wrote
the love-letterto Radha Which means Radha likes him.
Then why would l object? Then let me go and fix the wedding Madam… madam… madam, you’re late today?
– l was held in college You’re drenched. Let’s go there.
We’ll leave afterthe rains stop No, l’ll go home. Take me across.
-You’re crazy. The river is in spate lt’s difficult to row.
l’ll take you once the water recedes Come on… come Hey! You’ll get drenched.
– Don’t worry about me, madam. Come Wipe yourself
while l get some warm milk foryou No need for milk.
-You need it madam, l know Gopi, come back. Gopi!
– l’ll be back soon Here you are You won’t drink?
– l drank You’re lying.
– l’m telling the truth… honestly Have some more.
– No madam My lips haven’t touched the
container. -What are you trying to say? So you went and slapped him,
don’t you? Him…? Oh, Mr Love-letter? Madam, l slapped him so hard,
he fell flat on his face As if you have done a great job?
Must you do such a thing? l can’t figure that.
l beat him because you told me to You mean you’ll do my bidding?
– Of course. Tell me… and l’ll jump into fire,
even plunge into the river Ganges What are you saying?
– l mean it, madam Why Gopi? Why do l mean
so much to you? Well… madam… just like that No lt seems you’re giving me love
that you owed me in our last birth Well? Who knows that comes back
from which lifetime…? ”You and l…
-You and l…” ”forever, you and l
have sung the song oflove” ”Forever, may we sing together” ”Forever, you and l
have been loving mates” ”Foreverwe shall be in love…” ”you and l” ”ln every birth of mine,
in every youth of mine…” ”you’ve been my mate,
you were the one who adorned me” ”Joys or sorrows,
we never parted” ”All l beheld
in my eyes was you” ”Forever, you and l
have sung the song oflove” ”Forever, may we sing together” ”We were strangers…” ”long before l held you
in my arms” ”At times even the world thought
we had parted ways” ”But it was our shadows
that parted” ”Forever, you and l…
– Have sung the song oflove” ”The song oflove…
– Forever, may we sing together…” ”you and l” Gopi! What happened, madam?
– l’m scared The thunder is so frightening.
– Not thunder, grandma says… it’s the music of God.
– Music? Yes.
– This music scares me Radha, you’re so fortunate.
– l am. l got a mother like you Bless you. You asked me in the
morning where we were going. l’ll tell you lt’s such a good news… l won’t be
called a step-mother anymore What is it, Ma?
-Yourwedding is fixed Wedding…?
-Yes. With the one… who wrote you love-letters,
Rambabu. – Ma…! Radha, my child, you’ve chosen
such a talented boy foryourself But Father…
– No, don’t be apprehensive Rambabu is no stranger. l knew his
father. l know his family too well Besides, since the two of you love
each other, why would l object? Father…
– The wedding is fixed on the 11th l wish your motherwere alive
to witness this joy Madam… For how long will you give me
roses? -Why madam? l’m getting married Yes madam, l have heard. lsn’t he
the one, the love-letter one? Nice gentlemen.
He’s worthy of you in all ways What’s on your mind, Gopi? Just thinking
where ends this river Don’t you know this much?
All rivers end up in the ocean l’m wrong, Gopi.
Not all the rivers end in the ocean Some perish on the way.
They never meet the ocean Still they’re called rivers The thunder is so frightening.
– Not thunder… it’s the music of God.
– This music scares me Sir, l should be leaving now.
-You can’t leave just like that Gopi is a terrific singer, Rambabu.
– ls it? Let’s hear, Gopi Oh come on, sir…
– Don’t be shy. Sing ”Compliments to everyone
on such a happy occasion” ”l’m glad,
don’t let my tears mislead” ”For, l’m just another madman” ”l’m only a madman” ”Compliments to everyone
on such a happy occasion” ”l’m glad…
ignore my tears” ”For, l’m just another madman” ”l’m only a madman” ”Behind the tears,
a thousand reasons” ”Behind the tears,
a thousand reasons” ”Heartbreaks…” ”and joys too” ”ln joys too
tears wet the eyes” ”Tears… an enigma” ”l’m glad,
don’t let my tears mislead” ”For, l’m just another madman” ”l’m only a madman” ”The music is heart-rending…” ”as is the parting” ”Someone who belonged to me
has now become a stranger” ”ln this meeting
of two hearts…” ”ln this meeting of
two hearts, someone is ignored” ”Old ties have
given way to new ones” ”l’m glad,
don’t let my tears mislead” ”For, l’m just another madman” ”l’m only a madman” ”The waves…” ”the waves…” ”yourfather’s house,
my boat…” ”say to you…” ”now that you are leaving,
forget us” ”Don’t ever miss us, don’t
let your memories haunt us either” ”l’m glad,
don’t let my tears mislead you” ”For, l’m just another madman” ”l’m only a madman” ”Compliments to everyone
on such a happy occasion” ”l’m glad,
don’t let my tears mislead you” ”For, l’m just another madman” ”l’m only a madman” Madam… l wanted to give this to you
yesterday, but l was apprehensive Apprehensive? Of what? There were rich men
carrying expensive gifts How could l give her a simple rose? Moron Take this, Radha. Priceless rose, Radha.
Made fragrant by his affections Sir… When will you return, madam? lt’s not in my hands, Gopi – Right. From now on your husband
will take decisions When do we meet again, sir?
-We’re coming forthe festival Herfather insists.
– lt’s just two months away Promise me that you’ll hire my boat
forthe crossing Mother Ganga won’t let us cross
in any other boat Thank you You won’t stop bugging me.
– Marry me, and yourwoes will end l’ll cook foryou,
look afteryour kids… Forthat, must l marry you?
-Why not? lsn’t that enough? You aren’t the only girl
who can cook, there are many You can’t find a better girl than me.
-You think? Tell me something.
-Ask Why don’t you want to marry me?
Am l dark? Am l lame? lf you were, l’d have married you.
– So you want me to be dark and lame? Yes. Become one, fast.
Then l’ll think it over Gopi, you’re telling herto become
dark and lame? lsn’t she a nice girl? Nice girl, did you say? You like her,
grandma? Go ahead and marry herthen Hearthat, grandma?
– That’s his youth talking, dear Once old age knocks on him,
he’ll realise himself Then he’ll need someone to
cook for him and tend to him ls that the wife’s job, grandma?
-What else? Don’t know this much? Every wife has to serve her
husband? – Of course The madam too will have to do that?
– Of course. She’s no special Shut up, Gauri.
-All right, King Gopi Poorthing! Tending to her husband
must be so taxing Why didn’t you too marry Mr
Rambabu? You’d have done the cooking forthem Stop raving, else l’ll kill you.
– Kill me l have told you a thousand times!
lfl die, it’ll be only in your arms Will you marry me?
Or do you want to kill me? Lay off! Stop rambling. Can’t you see?
He’s not in the mood Can’t help it. He doesn’t marry me.
He won’t kill me either All right! The Ganges is in spate,
l’m going to drown myself l’m going!
– Gauri! Listen to me… Gauri! Gopi, stop her!
She’s going to drown herself Let her go, grandma. Gauri, make
sure you tie a rock on your back… lest you surface again You see what
she does to me, grandma? Gauri, listen! Where are you going? To drown in the river But you’re going the wrong way.
– How does it concern you? What about your lover?
– No one loves me What’re you saying?
What about Gopi? For him, l’m dead. Go and tell him,
l have nothing to do with him Tell him l’m going to the forest,
to meditate. l’m not coming back l see. So the matter
has reached this far! Let go of me! Scoundrel! Let me go! Help! Help! Gopi! Help! One moment You like me so much, Gopi?
– l like you? My foot! Of course, you do. Else why’d you
beat him black and blue? Gauri, after him, it’s yourturn now.
lf you talk rubbish… Get lost! Forthe heck ofit,
you refuse me But you do really love me, dearly.
– Love? Look at you! One slap, and you’ll
forget what love is. Let’s go now No, Gauri!
No, l’m innocent, Gauri Sonofagun! Started pimping, eh?
– No Lajjo, listen to me… Now l know from where the tenners
come everyday. Shame on you! Enterthe house,
and l’ll break your legs! Wonderwhat she eats!
Broke my bones! God! Did l deserve a fatso? Break his limbs. Doesn’t matter
ifhe dies. l’ll handle it Your money.
– C’mon guys Grandma! Help! What’s the matter, Radha?
– Nothing… a terrible dream Those scoundrels beat a simpleton.
May their hands be dissevered! May they rot!
– Grandma, l’m at fault Because of me, those sinners
did this to Gopi What will happen now, grandma?
– Don’t worry, my child Gopi will recover soon How many days more forthe
festival? Only four days.
– Four days! Will l make it?
-What a thing to say! l have committed no such sin
to deserve such a punishment Sister… come here Yes?
– Bad news What is it?
-Your son-in-law is no more Good Lord!
– The telegram says… he had high fever last night
and died before the day could dawn God!
-What happens to Radha now? Listen… Don’t give him the news.
He has a weak heart, you know No knowing what
this news will do to him Come here Yes?
-You were talking about a telegram Who sent the telegram?
– Radha is unwell Radha is unwell? What happened to
her? – Nothing l mean… she’s feeling queasy Queasy…? l get it.
l’m going to become a grandfather l’m going to become a grandfather!
– Please lie down l’ll go and fetch my daughter myself.
-You’re not in a state to travel Besides, it’s a very long journey.
The father never goes… to fetch his daughter. l’m here,
l’ll go and fetch her All right. Bring her soon.
– Relax l won’t let her go again.
Both of them will stay close to me Close to me, always Oh, what has happened?
What kind ofinjustice is this? Madam did no harm to anyone.
How could God be so unkind to her? Calm down, dear. We’re mere
puppets at the hands of God He creates and breaks us
at His own will Gopi must not know this.
He has just recovered somewhat No knowing how he’ll take this
news. – But how long will he be in the dark? Someday he’ll certainly find out.
– l know But until he recovers completely
we must keep this matter away from him What do l say?
Strange are the ways of God Where to, Gopi?
– To my boat Are you crazy? You aren’t even
back on your regular diet You haven’t the strength to row.
– Tomorrow is the festival So what?
– Madam is arriving today Meet her afteryou get well.
She’s going to stay here now l’m going.
– l won’t let you go in this state l’m not crippled, Gauri.
Know what madam said when she left? ”Mother Ganges won’t let us cross
in any other boat” You tell me, how can l stay back?
-Whatever, l’m not letting you go Don’t be silly, let me go Who are you taking the rose for?
-As if you don’t know? Forthe madam, who else? What does she have to
do with roses now? What do you mean?
– Nothing. Who knows… whether she’ll like the rose now.
-Why not? She stands tall now But she’ll certainly
like a rose from me Gauri, he left?
– Now what, grandma? Who can change destiny?
Only He can heal the wounds He gives No, no! How could this happen? You left with the mark of
a married woman on yourforehead… and this is how you return? Did l live to see this day?
Oh, what injustice is this? How could God do this to you? Why does God do this
to good people? You aren’t the only one who
is grieving. Go, get the boat No, l can’t do this As a bride she crossed the river
in my boat. As a widow… no! lt’ll rend Mother Ganga’s heart Madam! Let’s go, Radha Oh God! How could this happen? Father…
– No, don’t see him Just last night he had a
heart-attack. Doctor says he’s in bad shape Radha, my child Don’t! He won’t bear
to see you in this state Forthe sake of my husband,
l beg of you! Ma! Radha! l’ve been calling out to her,
why doesn’t she answer me? Brother-in-law…
-Where’s my daughter? Go inside and relax. She’ll come.
-All the while l’ve been relaxing l’m not dying so soon.
Let me see my daughter Listen…
– Not so easy to stop him now The rest is destiny Are you cross, Radha? Because
l didn’t call you home earlier? l’m not sending you away anymore.
You’ll stay close to me You’ll stay back, won’t you? l’ll
also ask your husband to stay here Father!
– Good Lord! Anybody there? Help! Doctor…
– Not to worry He’ll be fine by morning. But…
– But? The shock has paralysed his speech You mean my fatherwon’t speak
again? – Too early to say anything l’ll examine him after
he comes around. l’ll leave now Lord! What happens now?
– Don’t worry, sister lfhe doesn’t recover soon, l’ll
show him to the doctors in the city What madness is this? You’ve been
starving. Come one, eat now Grandma, our madam is an angel.
Why has such injustice been done to her? Within two months
ofher marriage, she became a widow! No man is immortal. Everyone dies.
-Why didn’t Death take me, oryou? Of all, did Death
find only madam’s husband? Son, look at me Do you know the mystery
of Life and Death? Death is an illusion. What turns to dust
after one dies is only the body But the soul never dies. lt lives on.
The soul is indestructible You haven’t eaten yet? How long will you starve
forthe dead? You’ve been starving. And your
father’s health has been deteriorating l fearyour indifference
might kill my husband God alone knows what’s coming! You’re educated, madam.
How could you be so careless? Are you eating? Or do you want us
to starve foryour daughter? God alone knows what’s
going to happen of this family! lf you don’t mind,
may l say something? l know l’m illiterate,
but you must listen to this l’ve found out… l have
the knowledge of everything now D’you know the mystery
of Life and Death? Death is only an illusion.
What turns to dust is only the body But the soul never dies. lt lives on.
The soul is indestructible The soul is divine.
And that’s the truth Am l not right, madam?
-You are right, Gopi So you must eat now.
– No, Gopi Then have a fruit. lf you don’t,
l’ll starve myself to death Thank you, madam You must take some rest now,
madam. How can l, Gopi? l just can’t sleep.
– lt happens, madam Afteryou left,
l couldn’t sleep Gopi, sing something for me Song? ”May God…” ”may God give you my sleep” ”l’d stay awake
while you sleep” ”l’d stay awake
while you sleep for me” ”May God give you my sleep” ”l’d stay awake

When are you marrying, Gauri? What says your Gopi?
– My Gopi, is it? Right.
– Now that the madam is widowed… he says he’s never going to marry.
– He means it though Madam is here, so where’s the need
for him to marry? l knew it What?
-Want to know? Yes.
– Hear Rubbish!
– lf you don’t believe, hearthis Just call the madam a widow
before Gopi, and you’ll know lf she isn’t a widow, then who
is her husband? That’s my question Think, and you’ll
figure everything Gopi, this must be decided today!
-What? Ourwedding.
-Won’t you considerthe situation? What’s wrong with the situation?
– Think about madam So no wedding happening here?
– No, ifhe can think Which means you won’t marry?
– No. Never! What have you got to do
if she is widowed? You call her a widow?
How dare you? l know, some don’t become widows
just because their husbands die And some are widowed before
they marry. l’m one of them Sister!
– Coming We’re ruined!
-What happened? We’re destroyed.
The tables have turned Will you say what happened?
-What not. ln reply to our notice… they’ve sent a legal notice. lt says,
our girl is wanton, she was… of a loose character before wedding.
– Goodness! What are you saying? Stop it! There’s more.
-What? She has an affairwith a boatman.
They can prove that, it says On that basis she isn’t getting any
allowance nor a share in the property You ought to have rebuked them
for heaping such false allegations lt’s absolutely true. You can’t blame
others forthe stain in our clothes Go to the village and you’ll know

– Gopi What rumours have you been
spreading? Tell me, why? l’ll kill you! What use killing you, sinner? How could you accuse such
a chaste woman? How could you?
You ought to be buried alive! This world is bereft of morals.
Falsehood and illusion is what is left Deception, in everything For selfish reasons,
even angels are vilified What use living amidst such people?
What use living in such a world? What use living? Gopi! Stop!
l won’t let you go! Gopi! Stop, Gopi! Grandma, stop him.
He’s going to kill himself Grandma, stop Gopi!
– No one can stop him now The fire you started
will burn you… and also incinerate those two Cursed woman!

-What happened to Gopi? He’s going away for good.
-What…? He has decided to kill himself Stop him, l beg of you!
For God’s sake, come quickly A sinner l am, in my madness,
l spread the rumours l envied you, so l did all that.
Forgive me You…?

Let’s see who saves you now Scoundrel! Didn’t those beatings
knock sense in you? lt will, now that you are here Open the door! Brother… Blood…? The gun…?
What’s happened to you? Radha has eloped with Gopi.
– Goodness! But what was the noise?
– l… l was trying to stop them Good Lord! What the hell
is wrong with Radha? Not to worry, sister. The honour
of the family rests on me l’ll kill that boatman
and bring back Radha Don’t go, brother! For God’s sake!
– Move! Where are you? Did you hear?
Radha has eloped with Gopi! With that boatman! Foryour daughter’s fault,
you hit me? ”Madam is very good” Flowers wither and fall off, but the
string that binds them never breaks ”Joys or sorrows,
we never parted” ”All l beheld
in my eyes was you” Why have you come here, madam?
-Why are you here? To kill yourself?. Kill yourself and
settle scores with who? Yourself?. Gopi, you explained to me
what life is, you taught me to live And today? Today you wish to
escape life? Come, let’s go back No madam, l’m not returning, ever.
What happens to me hardly matters But you… you must go back lf you’re seen with me,
their suspicions will turn true Let it turn true. Ratherthan
deceiving myself, living on lies… and faking things, l’d die accepting
the truth… the sheertruth What’s the matter? Why the gun?
-What is taboo during daytimes… is being done at nights. The honour
of everyone and the village is at stake How come?
– Gopi is eloping with Radha We won’t let such a thing happen!
– Then come with me Look… they’re headed here.
Go back, please No Gopi. l have come
to a point of no-return And when there’s no possibility of a
return, it’s wise to keep going ahead Madam…
– Start rowing, Gopi Jaggu!
– Gauri! You, here? At this hour? What’s the matter?
– Don’t ask. l need your help Come on Faster! Speed up! Faster! Step up! To have me, you tried your best,
tried everything you could but in vain Tonight… you can have everything But on one condition.
Do you promise to give me what l ask? What?
– Spare Gopi’s life. Spare my Gopi Put the gun away, and
everything belongs to you Don’t go, Gopi! Don’t go, Gopi! Madam! There’s a whirlpool ahead.
We could be caught No problem, Gopi. Rather die
in the waters of the holy Ganges… than burn to ashes in the fires of
falsehood and hatred ruthless men lit Madam! Aren’t you scared?
– Scared? Death separates everyone But it unites some too… forever Look Gopi, all directions
have come to a naught No more east, no more west No north, no south All have become one.
This is the truth oflife Truth that is eternal Radha, you’re mine You’re the one, you’ve been mine
in every birth and you shall always be No one can set us apart anymore! ”Forever, you and l…
– Have sung the song oflove” ”Forever, may we sing together”
