Romila "Romi" Dutta: Karan, you ok?
Karan Shergill: Romi, you always used to say that my life lacked any objective. Remember?
Karan Shergill: I have one now.
Karan Shergill: [pointing to peak 5179] That is my objective.
Pakistani Intruder: [on the walky talky] Hello, Gaznavi 3. Why has the firing stopped? Gaznavi 3, come in. Why has the firing stopped?
Capt. Jalal Akbar: The firing has stopped because Gaznabi has reached his destiny. Leave now or, I swear by Allah, we won't spare you.
Pakistani Intruder: What's that? Swear by Allah? Are you a Muslim?
Capt. Jalal Akbar: For you, I am just an Indian.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: What's going on, man?
Alwyn: Mushko, Dras, Kaksar, Batalik - same story everywhere.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: I don't understand. Why do wars happen? What are so many people dying for? When will we understand? We can't solve issues through war but through peace, and by understanding...
Capt. Saket Ahluwalia, Dogra Regt.: [shouts loudly from the other table] JUST SHUT UP! Just shut up!
Capt. Saket Ahluwalia, Dogra Regt.: [confronts Romi and others] Go give this lecture on peace and understanding somewhere else! Get Lost!
Alwyn: Look, I think you've misunderstood us...
Capt. Saket Ahluwalia, Dogra Regt.: You want peace and understanding? Well, I'm for peace and understanding, too. What should we do? Stand by with folded hands before them? Dress up our country on a platter and go over and GIVE it to them? You want peace. Captain Abeer Saxena also wanted peace and understanding. He didn't go attack another country. It was his country that was attacked! That road, that patch of earth that he lay dying on is a part of India's land! To India it belongs! First, go... have a look at his dead body, THEN give these lectures! Go look at him!
Col. Sunil Damle: [referencing to dead Pakistani soldiers] Sahab Dharamvir Singh, organize some of your men and give these fallen soldiers a decent burial.
Subedar Dharamvir Singh: Yes, sir.
[Everyone remains silent and unmoving]
Col. Sunil Damle: What's the matter? Pradeep?
Pradeep: Sir, I think that... everyone is reminded of the condition in which... they've... returned dead bodies of our soldiers.
Col. Sunil Damle: I see. I see. That difference divides us, and it should stay that way. Imagine what kind of army refuses to accept the bodies of their own fallen officers and soldiers. Shall we become like them? We're the Indian Army. We maintain decency... even in our enmity. Sahab Dharamvir Singh, give these men a proper burial... with due respect.
Subedar Maj. Pritam Singh: People tell us that war is bad. I ask them, "Who knows this more than a soldier?"
Karan Shergill: Then why have wars?
Subedar Maj. Pritam Singh: Sir, the Almighty made only one Earth, but Man's greed divided it. This became mine, that became yours. I'm glad the moon is up in the sky. We would have cut it to bits had it been down here.
Mr. Shergill: [on the phone] Karan? Where are you? How are you?
Karan Shergill: I can't tell you where I am, but I'm okay, Dad.
Mr. Shergill: Thankl God for that. You're mother's been praying day and night - and when you call, she isn't home.
Karan Shergill: This call is for you, to tell you something I have never told said. Dad, you have given me so much in life, but all I have given you is grief.
Mr. Shergill: Why are you saying this, Karan?
Karan Shergill: Please don't think that I'm not aware of this. I love you, Dad.
Mr. Shergill: I love you, too. Now, let me tell you something. Not one business associate or friend has a son or a brother out there on the front. These people just talk big, but I can proudly say "My son is on the battlefield." There was a time I was upset with you, but today I'm proud of you, very proud.
Karan Shergill: Thank you Dad. Thank you.
Capt. Jalal Akbar: Where are you from?
Karan Shergill: Delhi.
Capt. Jalal Akbar: Mm, the capital. I'm from Maliyabad. Ever heard of it?
Karan Shergill: Yes, sir.
Capt. Jalal Akbar: Where?
Karan Shergill: Just now, sir, from you.
[Capt. Akbar bursts into laughter]
Akhilesh Dutta: That boy is very confused.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: That's his only problem, Dad. He just can't decide what he wants to do. His life doesn't have... What's it called? That...
Akhilesh Dutta: An aim.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Aim. That's the word. He has no aim in life - but the day he finds his calling, wait and watch how far he goes.
Lt. Vishal Srivastav: What's the matter? Where's your energy? Didn't your mother feed you? You need to have fire in the belly!
Mr. Shergill: Whatever I earned, acquired - all that I have - who do you think it's for? When my dad came here from Lahore in 1947, what did he bring with him? My entire family stayed in one small room. When I grew up, I'd hear of the house we had in Lahore. The status of our family had a huge prominence. This would pierce my heart like an arrow. I vowed that I would restore the family position to what it once was - and I succeeded - but my dad didn't live to see this. Now all I have is my family, and if you have no respect for what I have done, then all my effort... has been in vain.
Rajeev Goel: Are you crazy? Are you crazy? You're going to Kargil?
Romila "Romi" Dutta: My boss also said the same thing first.
Rajeev Goel: He was right. Why go to some place engaged in a full-fledged war? Why take needless risks?
Romila "Romi" Dutta: There's no risk. And even if there is, it's not needless. Anyways, I am...
Rajeev Goel: You should have spoken to me first.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Why?
Rajeev Goel: Why? You are my fiancée.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: So?
Rajeev Goel: Look, it's better we get a few things clear right now. If we want to be together, this attitude won't do. You'll have to make some changes.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Change what?
Rajeev Goel: What's so difficult to understand? We'll be married soon. People marry to settle down. That won't happen if you keep heading off to war fronts.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Rajiv, you're the vice-president of sales for your company. You travel to New York and London ever other month. Will YOU stop going after marriage?
Rajeev Goel: That's my job.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: And this is MY job. To be honest, it's more than a job. The mountains that have been occupied are a part of India and I am Indian.
Rajeev Goel: Come on. Give me a break. I'm an Indian, too. I haven't lost touch with my culture and values, and I'm upset with you because those values are still alive in me.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: I see. So what you're saying is that I must dance to your tunes if we're to be together, right?
Rajeev Goel: I didn't say that.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: But that's what you meant.
Capt. Jalal Akbar: Karan, do you see the Pakistani bunker there?
Karan Shergill: Wow!
[Looks at Caption Jalal Akbar]
Karan Shergill: Unbelievable!
Capt. Jalal Akbar: And that pillar standing in between? That's the LOC. From here to there, this is no man's land. Neither their nor ours. But yet firing happens. We also reply when there is firing.
Karan Shergill: [Shakes head in disbelief] It's amazing, I mean... I always knew but I had never really given it a thought earlier that I am an Indian. I am an Indian!
Capt. Jalal Akbar: Do you like mangoes?
Karan Shergill: Sir?
Capt. Jalal Akbar: Mangoes?
Karan Shergill: I like them.
Capt. Jalal Akbar: Have you ever eaten mangoes from Maliyabad?
Karan Shergill: Sir, if you give them then I will surely eat!
Karan Shergill: Uncle you tell me. Has anyone ever benefited from these rallies and ruckus?
Akhilesh Dutta: Look, everyone has a right to speech in a democracy. But one should never break law and order.
Karan Shergill: Law and order?
[Romila's mother walks in]
Karan Shergill: Hello Aunty! How are you?
Mrs. Dutta, Romila's mother: Hello Karan.
Karan Shergill: How are you?
Mrs. Dutta, Romila's mother: I am fine! Where's Romi?
Karan Shergill: She went to her room just now.
Mrs. Dutta, Romila's mother: Oh okay... sit, sit!
Karan Shergill: Yeah!
[Sits down and looks at Romi's father to continue the conversation]
Karan Shergill: Law and order? Uncle, the police used water canons in the last rally. Water canons! Romi was saved otherwise she would be sitting in the jail today.
Mrs. Dutta, Romila's mother: [laughs] Like mother, like daughter! I have also gone to the jail a number of times during my student life.
Karan Shergill: [Shocked, looks at Romi's father] Aunty! In police lockup?
[Shakes head in disbelief]
Mrs. Dutta, Romila's mother: Akhilesh, I am going to India International. Bye Karan!
Karan Shergill: Bye!
Akhilesh Dutta: So Karan, tell me more. What are you going to do now?
Karan Shergill: I am going home now and then in the evening I will go with Ashu and Parvesh...
Akhilesh Dutta: [Cuts in] I am not asking you about today's program. I am talking about zindagi.
Karan Shergill: Zindagi... You mean life!
Karan Shergill: You are right uncle. I need to think about it.
Akhilesh Dutta: Look, do whatever you want but do it well. If you are a scientist but not a good scientist then what's the use? You become a gardener but cannot do it well then there is no point. Right?
Karan Shergill: You are right...
[nods in boredom]
Karan Shergill: So, shall I leave?
Karan Shergill: Hi.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Hi.
Karan Shergill: I miss you... I remember you a lot
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Me too...
Karan Shergill: I am going on a mission tomorrow.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: [Smiling slightly] I will wait for you.
Karan Shergill: [Sounding dejected] It might be possible that I won't return alive...
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Then I will wait for you all my life.
Karan Shergill: Romi? Don't you ever get bored?
Romila "Romi" Dutta: [sighs] Who has the time to get bored? There are so many things in the world, so much work, that if someone is really interested then one can never get bored.
Karan Shergill: Yeah... yeah, I know. You are right.
Karan Shergill: Romi... why does a girl like you love me? Why do you love me?
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Hmmm... you want to get praised?
Karan Shergill: [Rolls eyes] Seriously yaar...
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Well, I haven't seen you do anything bad till date. Neither have I heard anything cheap from your mouth. And I respect you for that. I like that.
Karan Shergill: [Smiles] Really?
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Yes. You are a good human being. And that's why I love you.
Karan Shergill: [Kisses Romi's hand] Thanks!
Karan Shergill: Romi?
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Yes?
Karan Shergill: I was thinking...
Karan Shergill: that you aren't that bad either...
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Shut up Karan!
Karan Shergill: Lt. Karen Shergill reporting, sir!
Col. Sunil Damle: At ease. Karan, come here.
Karan Shergill: Sir.
Col. Sunil Damle: What do you think? Is this frame straight?
Karan Shergill: [confused] Sir?
Col. Sunil Damle: This frame, does it look straight?
Karan Shergill: Sir, it's a bit... With you permission, sir.
Col. Sunil Damle: Yes, yes.
Karan Shergill: [adjusts frame a little] Now it's straight, sir.
Col. Sunil Damle: Good. Things don't feel right unless they're perfect. Karan Shergill...
Karan Shergill: Sir!
Col. Sunil Damle: ...be at the mess by 1900 hours. All the officers will be there. All right?
Karan Shergill: Now that it's clear what my future is, other thoughts are brewing in my mind.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Like what?
Karan Shergill: Like, in a couple of years I'll have to get married. So what do you say?
Romila "Romi" Dutta: About what?
Karan Shergill: About marriage.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Karan, I knew that someday we'd discuss marriage, but I never thought you'd say it in this manner.
Karan Shergill: How should I say it?
Romila "Romi" Dutta: I mean... can't you be a little romantic?
Karan Shergill: I see, so you'd like me to... get you flowers, and gaze into your eyes and say, "Romi... blah... blah... blah." Forget it.
Romila "Romi" Dutta: Don't be stupid.
Capt. Jalal Akbar: This season...
[finds Karan staring at the tv]
Capt. Jalal Akbar: Karan, you have the picture of this girl in your wallet right?
Karan Shergill: [Nods slightly] Yes...
Capt. Jalal Akbar: What happened? Looks like you two have fought.
Karan Shergill: [Tries to hide his tears] Uhm... excuse me sir...
