Give me your dad’s phone number -What happened, doctor? She is pregnant What have you done! You have brought shame to the family We trusted you and you end up doing this? Is it for this my brother is financing your education? If your mom comes to know, she will kill you! Don’t you know better than to stay away from such lowly people? Who is lowly? You didn’t bring up your daughter well Trying to blame my son! Did you hear what he said? Listen up! Mind your words! -What do you mean “mind your words”? We sent her here to get an education and look what you have done! Had it been our town, that’s it! What can you do? Was it only my son’s fault? -Yes, it was his fault! Keep your fights at home This is a hospital ‘Who was it?’ ‘Who sowed you?’ ‘Who was it?’ ‘Who destroyed you?’ ‘Who was it?’ ‘Who wrote your fate?’ ‘Who was it?’ ‘Who erased you?’ ‘O fireling!’ ‘Who extinguished you?’ ‘O flower!’ ‘Who squashed you?’ ‘Who killed you before you even came to be?’ ‘O unborn child!’ ‘Endless sorrow…’ ‘…is the cycle of birth.’ ‘O my love…’ ‘Is that why you scattered away?’ ‘This doomed world is but a simmering hell.’ ‘O my beauty…’ ‘Is that why you melted away?’ ‘You withered away in the fire of your mother’s womb.’ ‘O dear child!’ Five years later Please come in
This is the first wedding in your family Why such a simple affair? What’s the point of a lavish wedding? We bought them a house with the money It is getting ready Are you all going to move in there? -No, sir! It’s for the young ones! Will you invite us for the house warming? There is a minor litigation issue Case is in court I’m waiting for them to hand over the house Please come in first Posing a lot of questions! Aunty, pillows? -Inside No one is around!

Flight tickets for you and Tulasi It has all the bookings for your honeymoon Enjoy these four days! Only four days? Four days! Shimla What happened to you? -What happened? You aren’t happy! -Who said that? No one has to say it It is quite obvious You look like you have been forced into this marriage Nothing of that sort
Five years! I was not supposed to see or talk to you So many conditions! I have been waiting for this day You look so sullen as if it is an arranged marriage You may have forgotten everything But I can’t I can’t forget anything We should have had a child by now She should have been five years old Pandian, aren’t we going home? Your dad asked me to take you to the new flat Krishna, have you landed? Yes, dad I have some good news -What is it, dad? We have won the case involving our flat They have handed over the keys Really? That’s very good You and Tulasi can move in to the new house We have arranged for all the things you both would need What about you? -Mom and I will come over this weekend What about you? -Mom and I will come over this weekend Come in Be careful They have set up everything It looks great Isn’t this awesome? It was dad! He has saved up money little by little to build this house for us I was upset that he made our wedding a very simple affair But it was all for our good Right? Wow! What a view! Who are you angry with? Me or my dad? It wasn’t my decision! You know that! I felt so bad that day It was really hard for me But, thinking about the past isn’t going to help Tulasi, I want you to be happy I’m ready to do anything for that God will bless us with not one but two children like Diya Life will get busy We won’t even have time to talk This is our time now I’m not ready to waste it They want us to be happy We got to be happy here So cheer up!
This is our dream house Diya will be born here soon She is going to be running and playing around the house ‘A soothing lullaby…’ ‘She seeks that thing you forgot to sing.’ ‘The one you didn’t cuddle and coddle as the apple of your eye…’ ‘She is still a precious part of you.’ ‘A soothing lullaby…’ ‘She seeks that thing you forgot to sing.’ ‘Even without saying a word…’ ‘…she calls you ‘mom’ every moment.’ ‘That gentle smile you cast away…’ ‘…follows you wherever you go.’ ‘Bearing a question upon her heart…’ ‘To speak her love for you…’ ‘…she needs not a life.’ ‘Just waiting, just gazing…’ ‘…she proclaims her love!’ ‘To catch your eye…’ ‘To touch your hand…’ ‘To shower you with kisses…’ ‘…she yearns away!’ ‘But, there is no way.’ ‘There are no words.’ ‘Is the forgotten pain, a thorn now?’ ‘Is silence, a word now?’ My boy Go and tell your father Tell him Moorthy is out on bail Tell him his life will no longer be peaceful He’s the builder of this place I paid him the money he wanted He said the land value has risen and he had spent a lot He demanded another 25 lakhs for the registration I tried working it out, to no avail So I filed a complaint with the police and sued him Let it go Don’t worry about this I’ll tell the Assistant Commissioner about this. He’ll handle it
Why go through this again? Just pay him what he wants And then what? If everyone were to fear him like this and pay him what he wants he’ll keep cheating them and get rich I’ll take care of it Why deal with this again? -It’s okay Hello, uncle! Hello! Come on in! When did you come? All done at the hospital? Did aunty not come? -She doesn’t know I’m here We were just chatting Did you give him coffee? We were just talking -I’ll be back There’s no need for that I’ll come for lunch on Sunday with aunty. See you both then How come there’s no water? What is this? Motor’s been running all this while Still, not even a drop of water! Who’s there? Who pushed me in here? Help! Mom!
Dad! My husband! Oh God! My husband! Krishna, there’s a call from Sathish Ask him what’s up Hello? What is it, Sathish? Drink some of this, mom -Please drink, aunty Tulasi, your mother’s here Mom What happened, Tulasi? How did this happen? What is all this? He went to see my brother Krishna last night I don’t know when he came back home and went to sleep He seemed perfectly normal I can’t believe any of this This case has three possibilities Suicide. Accident. Murder Chances of suicide are very low Why would anyone want to kill themselves in such a painful way? ‘Trigger Star’ fights back! They’d choose simpler methods Going by the autopsy report, this is no accident It is murder What was that? Murder, sir The serial kisser’s busted! Get out of here Before leaving, order some raisins for me ‘Shall I torment you for a while, Julie?’ With regards to this case, there are three possibilities Suicide. Accident. Murder Would anyone attempt suicide by suffocating inside a water tank? Why be a cop if you’re scared of death? As long as the work happens, let it go This is definitely not suicide! An accident in a water tank? Sounds funny! More than the autopsy report Ragavan’s instinct says it’s a murder! Did you come here just to say that? So begin the enquiry right away Why waste time yapping over here? I’ll kick it off on an auspicious day! Stay on process, Ragavan! These guys come in using recommendation and screw all of us over! He needs to be put in an encounter team and be killed by some thug! Per the post mortem report, your father died by suffocation Why would he go to the roof at that time? -Is lunch ready? We don’t know that We suspect this maybe a murder Didn’t you confirm to me that this was murder? Just cause I’m young, think you can fool me? This is definitely a cold blooded murder The perpetrators maybe mercenaries, Maoists, or even Naxalites! Or hell, they may even be terrorists! But Ragavan is ready for any Can you think of any enemies that your father or your family may have? No, sir Nobody like that Are you kidding? Going by the word of some kid, you came to interrogate me? So you didn’t do it? -I have nothing to do with this! He’s not the guy. Why bother a gentleman? Let’s go! They always say that As cops, we need to probe further I’m aware of that. Alright? -Yes, sir But my instinct asks why wouldn’t you have done it? If I wanted to kill him for what he did, I’d have done it a long time ago! Why would I drown him in a water tank? You killed my father and pretend like you know nothing of it? Your father must have had a dozen enemies like me. Go and ask them!
I won’t spare you! -Let go of my shirt! Break it up! Don’t you have any sense? You brought me to a battle zone! You’re all suspended! I’m out of here! Ragavan! Don’t stay on process! My mother’s very upset I’m sending her and Sathish to America for six months, to get over this Take your mother back to our house I’ll stay with my mother tonight finish work at the construction site and will come home tomorrow What is this? Is the door stuck? My God! It’s not opening! Please come here, Tulasi! The door isn’t opening! It is jammed! What is this? What happened, mom? -I don’t know. The door was jammed It scared me! Where is Krishna? I’ll bid him goodbye and return home You can tell him by phone No, dear He looked so devastated that day I’d like to console him and then head over to the train station Alright. I’ll book a cab You can tell him on the way Mom -Hold on a minute, driver! What happened? -Emergency case at the hospital Can I ride with you? -Sure Krishna will drop you off at the station What is this, driver? The door isn’t opening I don’t know, ma’am Let me check Come on in -The child lock is on! I don’t know how that happened, ma’am Sorry We’re here, mom Shall I tell Krishna that you’re here? It’s alright, dear. I’ll take care of it You get going. Alright? I’ll take that -Bye Is flooring over in that block? -Up to twenty floors, sir Good! Send it to the ground floor! I said ground floor! Why are you coming up? I didn’t do it It’s going automatically! Stop that thing! I’m trying! Why are you sending it up when I told you to send it down? It hasn’t been fixed yet, sir! What are you doing? Stop the lift!
I can’t make sense of this! It won’t stop! -Turn off the power right now! I’ve turned it off! What happened? -I don’t know, sir How is it still going up? It stopped on its own! -I don’t understand, sir! Is anybody there? The lift door won’t open! Somebody please open the door! The lift’s falling down, sir! What happened? Move aside! What happened? -Move! Some repair work you’ve done! -It was being checked. Can’t explain this Have an industrial crane clear this tonight and get a new lift ready! Tulasi, coffee please Where’s your mother? -She left She came to the site to meet you What? She came to the site? When? I was the one who dropped her No. I didn’t see her She came to inform you Yeah, tell me Clear everything Mom! -Ma’am! Sir, we didn’t know that she was inside If we did, we could have saved her We don’t know how she got into the lift that was being installed What happened, uncle? Call the ambulance! I know what you’re thinking, son
There is no link between me and what is happening in your family It is true that I was angry at your dad But, I am not that bad a person to destroy your family What to do? These are bad times If you or your family needs any help don’t hesitate to ask me I just came over to tell you this How many days will you brood over this? If I had dropped mom, this wouldn’t have happened, right? Don’t stress yourself unnecessarily If it is destiny’s play, no one can change it You should become normal You should go to back to the hospital If your was mom was alive, she would have wished the same I want to see my uncle We will shift him to the normal ward in another two days But it would be better if no one disturbs him We’ll take care of it I’ve already talked to the doctor Tulasi! I heard about it only yesterday Two people passed away in a week I am sorry Uncle will be fine If you need anything, do call me Take care Bye Did you get the call, sir? -Yes, I received the call
Who called? -Don’t know, but they called from the spot At what time? -Around 4 to 5 am in the morning How come you are here? She is our family doctor We have known her for years We met her yesterday in the hospital We were shocked when we heard this news There is some link between you and the three deaths What are you saying, sir? Will anyone kill their own mother and father-in-law? True! Will anyone do that? -No, sir What you say sounds right It is logical Tulasi was the last person that all three of them saw Not only that, all the three have died in the same manner Out of suffocation That is a strong coincidence I know that But Ragavan’s intuition says, all these are murders All these are accidents Don’t talk like a child Who is talking like a child? The murderer or me? Don’t get it? In the doctor’s car, all the doors had the child lock on! But there was no child in that car Why? How? Was it you who found it? It was I who found it! It came in a flow Was it right? Brilliant, sir You don’t have answers for any of my questions, right? But I will find the murderer I’ll bring him before the law and get him a death sentence! No matter what a big shot he is! Let’s see who wins That guy or this Ragavan! Uncle! How are you? -I’m good, dear How’s your health? -It’s fine Are you fine? -When were you discharged? Just now -You could have informed us That’s not a problem I am leaving to the site You guys carry on Wonder whose sin it is, this is devastating our family You don’t worry Everything will be alright, if we perform some rituals No, uncle Krishna doesn’t believe in all this You are young folks You’ll never understand this All this is beyond our understanding If the holy man Balaswamy comes over and performs rituals all the negative energy will leave us It’s for our own good Wonder whose sin it is, this is devastating our family All the three died in a similar way Out of suffocation That is a strong coincidence In the doctor’s car, all the doors had the child lock on! But there was no child in that car Why? Driver, the door is not opening? The child lock is on! I don’t know how it happened, ma’am Tulasi was the last person that all three of them saw Bye, dear -Get going She is pregnant What have you done! You have brought shame to the family Listen up! Mind your words! What has happened has happened There is no point in us fighting Their future is more important I have been thinking the same Getting them married is the right thing to do How is that possible? She has just written the medical entrance examination We wanted her to become a doctor We had a lot of dreams How can we do this?
Your son has to focus on his career and settle down That is what is good for their lives You are right But what can be done now? Don’t get stressed Let’s sort this out now We will get them married after 5 years By then, they will be done with their education What about the baby in her womb? Abort it Yes, let’s abort it That’s the right thing to do Doctor, please go ahead with the formalities Mom I’m sorry I made a mistake But let’s not do this Please Keep quiet We know what’s right Dad -Keep quiet! I’ll kill you Doctor, please tell them Don’t worry I’ll handle it It won’t take more than ten minutes It’s quite common these days Don’t be scared Uncle, please tell mom not to do this Would you be fine with it if it was your daughter? If my daughter had done the same thing, I would have killed her Krishna, this is our child Why are you keeping quiet? Say something! They are only saying it for our good They have agreed to get us married Why can’t we do this for them? Tulasi! Relax, Tulasi! -What happened? What happened to her? How can you go on talking like this? She is pregnant and weak She is no longer a minor Nobody can force her against her will Please, just leave her alone Just relax Don’t get emotional Your health is more important Nurse, give me the injection -Here, doctor! Hypoglycemia Abort it Yes, let’s abort it Don’t worry It won’t take more than ten minutes If my daughter had done the same thing, I would have killed her Hello, Tulasi Uncle, where are you? -Tell me, I can hear you Uncle! Diya!
Diya! Diya! Mom! Go ahead, sir Did you get any clues? Is anybody in your family in the export business? Why do you ask? Around 50-55 years age Short and fair? Yes. Tulasi’s uncle Did he come to meet you or Tulasi yesterday? Yes. He had been discharged from the hospital and visited us today Why do you ask? What happened? I’m sorry He is no more Your uncle Is he dead? Why can’t we do this for them? Don’t go with them They’re all going How can I not go with them? If we get Tulasi in our custody and question her for two days it will get us closer to the perpetrator Are you an idiot? Anyone who meets that woman ends up dead! And you want me to meet her? I get it You’re targeting me, right? If I die, you become sub-inspector! -Stop it, sir! I asked you to close the case, not my life! Get lost! It’s not that -That’ll do! Rule it as an accident! Krishna, we
What happened to you? I need to talk to you alone You said you wanted to talk What do you want to talk about? What I’m going to tell you may be shocking Hard to believe, too But it’s the truth Diya Our baby exists Mom! I want to see you They saw to it that you never will So… you killed all of them? Yes They are evil, mom They separated us We don’t need anybody The two of us are enough Everyone who wanted Diya to be aborted are dead You’re the only one left in that list Diya won’t spare you She’s going to kill you next In order to keep Diya from killing you, I must always be with you Please try to understand Didn’t you sleep? Why were you up all night? Don’t talk so loudly Diya might hear you You don’t believe me, do you? There are pills for everything We can cure this It’s not that I don’t believe you But For many days, you were upset over the abortion Then there were many deaths in our family This kind of restlessness is quite natural I understand Why can’t you believe me? I’m perfectly fine! Stop it, Diya! Diya killed Krishna’s father, my mother, and our doctor! Krishna’s next on her list Please believe me! As long as Krishna is with me, Diya won’t kill him He’s safe if he’s with me. I don’t know how to make him understand that! At least, you must believe me I’m telling the truth! Please understand! -Relax! I believe you! Take these two pills at night You’ll sleep well If you still feel this way next week, come back here again We’ll try another medicine
I’m neither ill nor insane, Krishna! I’m telling you the truth! Diya won’t spare you, either If you’re with me, you’re safe Please understand! It’s alright if you’re taking a long break When will you be back? I don’t know Krishna! The pot fell as I was hanging it up What’s up? What happened? Really? Nobody was hurt, right? Call the foreman! I’m on my way! Have the crane clear it up I’m coming! I have urgent work to do Where are you going? I told you not to go without me! There’s a problem at the new site A ceiling has fallen! I’ll be right back I’ll go with you! Nothing will happen to me Relax The building must be done by next month I’ll be back Auto! Please stop! Please go! Where to, ma’am? -What? I’ll tell you. Go! Drive faster, please! Never mind the speed! Tell me where you want to go! Keep driving! I’ll tell you Is Krishna around? Mr. Krishna is not here Nobody’s here Is anyone -Check the construction site Wait! Which site? I need to pick up school kids, ma’am! Tell me where to go, or find another auto! Police station Is the Sub Inspector here? -What happened? My husband Krishna Have Aadhar cards with death certificates! Can’t cremate without it! Sir -Hello! Oh no, no! -Wait a minute, sir Why did you come here? We didn’t call you! There is no case against you All enquires will be done by phone! Go! If you’re here, we’re in danger! -My husband is going to die! Please try and save him! -He’s ‘going to die’? How do you know that? -You won’t believe me if I told you! Our unborn baby, Diya, is killing everyone in my family! She’s going to kill Krishna, too Please save him! If I save Krishna, who will save me? Now go! He won’t answer the phone -Get her out of here!
Let’s go, ma’am -Constable! Come along, ma’am Listen to me! How did this happen? -While wiring, it cracked under pressure Use additional staff to clear this! Nothing’s done yet! -They started at dawn. It’ll wrap up soon Stop talking crap! Who’ll explain it to the Managing Director? It’ll be done right away We’ll start now. No problem! My job is only planning and supervision You must take care of logistics! So much has happened! What were you all doing? Don’t try to talk your way out of this Where to now, ma’am? Ma’am! I asked you where you want to go now! The building must be done by next month Go to Old Mahabalipuram Road This block must be ready in ten days I can’t explain this mess to the M.D.! We can do it! Make it fast! Stop the vehicle! The pillar’s coming your way, sir! Move! Raise it up all the way! Lift that! Carefully! Our unborn baby, Diya, is killing everyone in my family! In the doctor’s car, all the doors had the child lock on! But there was no child in that car Why? She’s going to kill Krishna, too It’s true that you saved me But this kind of accident is very common at the site Please don’t correlate this with that No, Krishna You don’t know Diya did it The chain snapping The rock falling All part of Diya’s plan to kill you Tulasi, please -My child I don’t know what’s causing you grief But I see that this grief is not just between the two of you Sometimes, a fault from the past tends to revolve around us as karma In order to be free of it, a few penances should be sufficient If you wish, go meet Mr. Kanchipuram Balaswamy He will give you the right solution for your situation Uncle mentioned him too Shall we call him home right away?
Rituals and penances can make this alright I don’t know what will be made alright But I want you to be free of this Mom! Please don’t do this, mom! It hurts, mom! Stop this, mom! It really hurts! Don’t do this, mom! It’s hurting me! What happened, Tulasi? I’ll answer it My name is Balaswamy Is this the home of Krishna and Tulasi? No There’s nobody here by those names This was the address given over the phone The crane cable got disconnected and the pillar fell here Note down everything -Yes, sir Where were you then? I was talking to my boss Few people were around From there? -No, not there The doctor’s accident didn’t happen here It was over there Get me the CCTV footage Ramesh -Yes, sir Got the death certificate? -I’ll get it Get it for all the deaths. Don’t miss any -Yes, sir And the CCTV footage? -It’s ready All cameras? -Yes, sir Won’t you check, Balakumar? You know how long we have waited for it? You get the postmortem report while getting the death certificate Why is it still here? Go and get a copy of this Send it to the Commissioner The media shouldn’t know. Keep it a secret Tulasi, this is an important meeting I’ll come in ten minutes I will come with you -No, you stay here You be here I’ll be back Tulasi? -She is outside I saw your message She’s in bad shape Yes, doctor I don’t know what to do Tulasi should get alright I’m ready to do anything for that Help me, doctor. Please If you are not with Tulasi, she is scared that you’ll be in danger That’s the problem It is very simple We first need to remove that fear Tulasi must see that nothing will happen to you, even if she’s not around If she starts believing it, she will be alright Tulasi won’t leave my side even for a minute You have to leave her and stay away for two days Tulasi shouldn’t know your whereabouts No one should know Also, switch off your phone You can come back to her after two days Then, she will trust that nothing will happen to you Give it a try I think this simple psychiatric approach will be the best treatment for her Let’s see
Shall we go? Take that footage? -This one? Forward it -Okay, sir Stop there Zoom a bit -Just a minute, sir How did the car wiper switch on automatically? What if Tulasi is right? Could it be the soul of her unborn child who has killed everyone? I need to meet Tulasi right now Krishna! Diya! You live in Chennai Then why did you ask for the guest house? I have been tied up with a lot of work Thought of switching off the phone and taking a break for two days No problem. I got the basement ready for you. Feel comfortable No one will disturb you for two days Watchman is not here You must take care of food on your own Take care Bye Hi, Tulasi Where is Krishna? Krishna is on leave Don’t you know about it? Leave? Do you know where he has gone? -I don’t know Any problem? Is everything fine? Tulasi! Mr. Krishna! Excuse me! Anyone there? Is Krishna here? -He hasn’t come yet Do you know where will he be? -No, ma’am Hey, give me Tulasi’s number We don’t have Tulasi’s number We have Krishna’s number Krishna’s number is switched off! -I’m sorry Won’t you even note the number of a person who files a complaint? Brother, do you know where Krishna is?
I don’t know, ma’am He didn’t come here Tulasi Tulasi! Turn the car around Go fast! Get going, you! Go fast, man! Diya! No! Mom!
What happened, doctor? You saved not just one life, but two She is pregnant! Diya! I want to see you Please! Mom!
