No, who said this to you? All children say that I am poor
and so is papa and papa asks everyone for money. They all lie. They say my father
doesn’t do anything. Momin, your father is the richest. Does he have money? He has something worth
more than money. Come, I will show you. Your father writes God’s name, he is the richest in the world. The one who writes
God’s name is rich? Yes. Why? Because God loves them the most. God loves papa? And you and me? He loves papa the most. Why does He not give him money? I want a lot of toys, a cycle and I want to eat chocolates. Why did you say yes to this job? What else could I do? Do what you have always done Taha. I cannot do calligraphy. Whatever I make, it doesn’t touch anyone’s heart. What I want to sell, no one buys. How long will I waste time
sitting like this. Taha. I, I cannot see him suffer
for things like this. I have hurt papa, he is upset with me. Till the time papa is upset with me, God will never forgive
these hands. We will go to him, with Momin. I have been writing to him for ages. He has not replied once. I apologized, if his heart had to melt, it would have. I stood outside his home, just to see him. Everyone says that he
stopped mentioning me. He has forgotten Taha Abdul Ala. When I would sit down
to write God’s name, it would feel like he
was in front of me. He is making me write him
name Himself. But for the past 6 years, He has gone away from me. Taha… He is still in my heart, but I am not in His. I have asked for forgiveness a lot, I have begged for forgiveness, does Allah get upset with His man like this that he takes away his talent, takes away his livelihood,
his peace. Taha… I will teach calligraphy to Kalb-e-Momin.
I am not worth it anymore. Hey, why are you
taking off these pictures? Just like that. Its getting bad being pasted on the wall. Should I take them out too? No, you go change your shoes,
uncle is coming. The uncle who gets
me loads of things? Yes. Sultan, you have not changed, you are the same. You have changed Husn e Jahan. Life has changed, that is why. Kalb e Momin. Your son? Yes. You go outside and play, I will call you in a bit, okay? Uncle didn’t get me anything? No. You are still up? Why are you looking at me like this? Nothing. Okay, what are you reading? A script for a film. Script? Urdu film. Okay. What is the story? Its like Alif Laila till the interval. I read it holding my breath, should I tell you? Yes, go ahead, Husn e Jahan would read
me all the scripts, if I would say yes,
she would say yes. She believed in my suggestion. Go ahead, I will tell you if the film will be hit or not. This is a story of a child, papa, the one who’s mother
was an actress and dancer. In a show in Turkey, during her performance, she falls in love with a
calligrapher and dancer. She leaves everything and stays back in Turkey. That dancer is from a family of calligraphers. He upsets his father and
marries that woman, then he is never able to do calligraphy, and their love story ends
cause of a man. Which man? Sultan. What were you in
Husn e Jahan’s life papa? A hero or villain? What happens in the
movie after the interval. I don’t have the second part of the story. Say no to this script. Papa, you went to Turkey to
meet Husn e Jahan? What happened there,
what did you tell her? Whoever wrote this story, ask him. I will not tell you anything. Who wrote this script? Kalb e Momin. Kalb e Momin. Who Kalb e Momin? Famous movie director who
failed me in the audition, he didn’t give me work, he wants me to do this script. Did he write Husn e Jahan’s name? No, only your name is Sultan in this, rest of the character names are changed. I have heard Husn e Jahan’s story
from you so many times, that I can recognize her name
hidden in the papers. Papa, Husn e Jahan also fell in love
with a calligrapher from Turkey, she had a son who
she took with herself. Papa, what did you do in
Turkey that her house broke? I want to meet Kalb e Momin. What for? I want to read the next
part of the film. You have the next
part of this film. Don’t do this script. Don’t become Husn e Jahan. This film will be a failure. Papa, you are scaring me of failure? Me? Hello. Momina? All ok? I will do this film. What film? Alif? Yes. I don’t believe it. You are awake,
you are not dreaming. I want to meet the director and
producer before I go to Dubai. We don’t have the budget for this movie. This cannot be a low budget film and we don’t have the
money for a high budget. If we mortgage the office and
get the money, then? Such a big risk, if this movie is a flop whatever we have made in 3 movies
will be lost along with the career. Okay, if we reduce the budget, how much will we need? 70-80 million. But if you agree to me, don’t take this risk, your image in the market is not good. What image? I don’t want to repeat what people
and the critics are saying. But I will just say that do
what you are can do, don’t get into what you cannot do. You are saying this after
reading the script? The script is strong, the movie will be good but people won’t come to see it. At most you will get some good reviews. Make something that get you
awards like before, something that is discussed,
that makes some noise. I don’t feel like making all that. You want to be out of the
market by choice boss? What market? Where you show filth on 8 kanals? That was a hallmark, I mean commercial cinema. Brother Momin,
Momina is ready for this film. What? She is ready to play the role
of a mother of a child? Obviously brother mother, there is only one heroine in the film. I feel you are out of bad luck. Or her bad luck is starting. She wants to meet to
talk about the script. Set the meeting here tomorrow. She doesn’t want to come here, she has some bad memories. We can keep the meeting at your home,
if she wants to come or we can go. I will ask her and tell you. Yeah, sure. Now brands will come running to us. You sit, I will call brother Momin. Mr. Abdul Ala’s paintings, what does Kalb e Momin
have to do with calligraphy? Hello. Hello. I think I came early. No, well yeah. For Pakistan, its early, 7 minutes. Come sit, have a seat. Had I waited for Dawood, I would have been 10-15 minutes late. I was waiting for you for half an hour,
so it doesn’t matter. Anyway, will have tea or coffee? No, just water. So coffee and water. Yeah. Shakoor, get tea and water. I have an allergy from smoking. No I am not lighting a cigarette. Actually when I am a little nervous, I play with the lighter. Sorry,
if its bothering you. Wont you ask why I am nervous? I am not interested in finding out. I wanted to apologize…
Lets talk about the film. Whose story is this? Not me. Husn e Jahan? Who is that? Actress and dancer of the past. No, not about her. The characters and situation
of the movie are all fictional. Sorry, I thought its her story, anyway your story is really pretty, all characters are great. Alia, Azlan, zain and then Abdullah’s character but the story is half, when can I get the rest. How do you know Husn e Jahan? Who Husn e Jahan? You just said you…No,
I don’t know her. Brother Momin,
some Mr. Khaliq has come. Oh damn. I had forgotten I gave him time. Wait, call him in quickly. So sorry, if you don’t mind,
can I deal with him in 2 minutes and come. Sure. Sorry, you have this coffee till then. Hello. Mr. Khaliq. Hello. Thank you.
Thank you so much. Come. I am in a hurry Mr. Momin,
I have a flight, can you show me the calligraphies? Sure. Sure. Shakoor. Yes, this is Mr. Abdul Ala’s work, forgive me brother,
he introduced me to you, but I am sorry I had my doubts. Tell me, what should I pay for this? What can you give me? I can give anything in return for these. Please, have a seat. in fact, I will do one thing, I will give you a blank cheque, you fill the amount you want. Will you sell this to a museum? These are the great works of Mr. Abdul Ala, I used to beg him each year, when he used to make them for you,
to give me one piece. But he always said no. But look at my luck, I am getting all 7 of these. Money comes and goes, but Mr. Ala’s talent is timeless, I will give these master
pieces to my two sons. These are 6, where is the 7th? Its in the corridor. I will tell my driver and guard,
they will come collect it. No, one minute. I am so sorry, I am really sorry, can I take some time from
you to think about this? I am giving you a blank cheque, you fill the amount you desire. Add millions or billions. You take back this cheque. Actually, don’t get me wrong, its just that I have a lot of
emotional attachment with these and giving
them away is difficult. I hope you understand. I am leaving this cheque, if it’s a matter of 2-3 days
I will come back again. I am actually disappointed, because I had finalized the place
for these in my home. Sir, you take this cheque it is not needed. No, you keep this cheque with you. It will help clear your confusion.
I will leave. Bye. Thank you. Thank you so much. Sorry brother Momin,
I hope I am not too late. No, not at all, come in.
Is Momina here? Yes, she’s inside. I am so sorry Momina,
I got late. Its ok. So what was being discussed? Script. I like it and my role too,
I had some questions, I asked him. Great. No, I actually wanted to discuss your
package before the script, what if I cannot afford you. So, if everything goes according to plan, you take your advance. Momina is a friend brother Momin,
she will obviously keep her plan flexible for us. Not at all. Why should my package be
flexible for you people? I am a professional,
why would I give you concession. As far as being affordable is concerned, you should have thought about
it before sending me the script. NO, I don’t want any concession, you please tell me your package. The seven calligraphies you
were about to sell.
