Warning..this may turn out to be very depressing. I'll try to give it a happy ending, but can't say.
Tarika left Abhijeet's house after listening to his decision on leaving CID.
Abhijeet wondered if he was doing the right thing. He wanted to remain in CID and wanted things to return to normalcy like the good old days. He wanted Daya to start behaving normally again. Abhijeet wondered if he was doing this to hurt Daya. His conscience said that he was. He hoped Tarika would somehow leak the information to Daya and then Daya would come and try to change his mind...at least Daya would start talking to him.
Abhijeet waited for 4-5 days, but either Daya seemed busy or Tarika didn't get the right message. Now it became an issue of his own self- respect. He was feeling suffocated in the company of Daya who always seemed to be giving him the cold shoulder. The others like Freddie and Purvi knew about this tension and kept giving him pitying looks. Abhijeet decided that it was time for a change. He would try and get a transfer for a few months with the option to come back.
Scene : ACP's house
ACP had returned from Delhi after a month. Abhijeet rang the doorbell at 8AM.
ACP(opened the door): Arey Abhijeet, tum? Andar aao., baitho.
Abhijeet sits on the sofa.
ACP: Jab bhi main kisi tour par jaake waapis aata hoon, toh subah subah tum aur Daya dono mujhse milne aate ho. Is baar tum akele ? Daya kisi case mein uljha hua hai kya?
Abhijeet: Hmmm...(avoids talking about Daya) Aap kaise hain sir?
ACP: main thee hoon. Ek bohot bada case haath lag gaya hai. Bureau mein discuss karte hain.
Main breakfast karne wala tha...tum bhi khaaoge?
Abhijeet : Nahi sir rehne diiye. Main aapse kuch baat karne aaya hoon.
ACP: Kya baat hai Abhijeet? Tum kuch udaas lag rahe ho
Abhijeet: Kuch nahi sir...mujhe CID ke kaam se ek break chahyiye.
ACP(surprised): kya hua Abhijeet? Achanak kaam se break? pichle 15 saalon mein tum iss kaam se kabhi thake nahi. Ab kya hua?
Abhijeet: Bas aise hi sir...
ACP: hmmm...theek hai. ek mahine ki chutti le lo...kahin ghoomkar aao.
Abhijeet: Nahi sir...woh baat nahi hai. Mujhe CID Mumbai se transfer chahiye.
ACP: Kya!!! Ho kya gaya hai tumhe?
Abhijeet: Kuch nahi sir. Bhopal mein mera senior Kaushik hai. kuch dino pehle mujhse mila tha. Uske team mein sab junior officers hain. Woh chahta hai ki main uske saath kaam karoon.
ACP: Nahi nahi Abhijeet...mujhe pata hai baat kuch aur hai. kise case mein phase ho kya tum?
Abhijeet: Nahi sir.
ACP: Media walon ne kuch ulta seedha likh diya hai kya tumhare baare mein? Ya mere gair haaziri mein Chitroley ne kuch keh diya? Main abhi Daya se poochta hoon. (picks up his phone)
Abhijeet : Sir, please!!! Aap kisi ko phone mat kijiye. Aur kisi ko yeh baat mat batayiye. Kya aap mere request par mera transfer approve nahi kar sakte? Jab kuch saal pehle Muskaan ne transfer ke liye apply kiya toh aapne hum me se kisi ko nahi bataaya.
ACP: Lekin Muskaan apne family ke saath Bangalore mein rehna chahti thi. Isliye maine uska transfer manzoor kar diya. Tumhare paas aisi koi wajah nahi hai.
Abhijeet: please sir...main yahan se jaana chahta hoon. (voice cracks)
ACP(observes Abhijeet) : Theek hai, mujhe thoda waqt chahiye. DCP Chitroley se bhi baat karni padegi. Aur tum toh jaante ho unke baare mein.
Abhijeet: theek hai sir...lekin please main yahan zyada din nahi rehna chahta.
ACP: Abhijeet, kya baat hai?
Abhijeet: Kuch nahi sir...main ab nikalta hoon. Bye sir.
(and leaves, avoiding eye contact with ACP)
ACP wondered what was the matter with Abhijeet. He also noticed how Abhijeet was avoiding mentioning Daya. It was surprising that Abhijeet had decided to take a transfer and Daya was in the dark about this.
Scene : Bureau
ACP observed Daya making sarcastic comments about backstabbing and broken friendship. Late in the evening he called Freddie to his cabin.
ACP: Aao Freddie. Baitho
Freddie: Kya hua sir, meri class lene wale hain kya sir?
ACP: Arey aisi koi baat nahi hai, bas tumse kuch poochna tha.
Freddie: Kya sir?
ACP: Yeh Daya aur Abhijeet ko kya ho gaya hai? Achanak ek doosre se theek se baat nahi kar rahe hain.
Freddie: Sir, mujhe jo pata hai, woh main bata sakta hoon.
Freddie: Sir, Shreya ki shaadi fix ho gayi hai.
ACP: Achcha? Aur yeh baat mujhe kisi ne bataaya nahi! Ladka kaun hai?
Freddie: Koi Siddharth naam ka ladka hai sir. Shreya ke papa ke dost ka beta hai.
ACP: Daya isse khush nahi hai?
Freddie: Woh...sir...aap toh jaante hi hain...
ACP: Theek hai, Shreya kisi aur se shaadi kar rahi hai, lekin iska Abhijeet se kya sambandh?
Freddie: Sir, woh mujhe nahi pata.
ACP: Hmmm...theek hai. Main Daya se baat karta hoon.
Freddie leaves. ACP calls Daya.
ACP: Daya, kahan ho tum?
Daya: Sir, main forensic lab mein hoon. Salunkhe sir laash ke baare mein bata rahe the.
ACP: Main tumse kuch baat karna chahta hoon Daya. Bureau aa sakte ho?
Daya:Haan sir, main abhi aata hoon.
Daya arrives in half an hour.
ACP: Aao Daya. Baitho.
Daya, maine suna Shreya ki shaadi tay ho chuki hai.
Daya: Haan sir.
ACP: Tumhe is baat se dukh ho raha hai?
Daya: Sir, pehle thoda dhakka laga...lekin ab main sambhal gaya hoon. Yeh pehli baar thodi hai sir...
ACP: Tumne Shreya se baat ki?
Daya: Sir chodiye na sir. Main un baaton ko bhoolne ki koshish kar raha hoon.
ACP: Theek hai. Toh kuch aur bataao. Tumhara Abhijeet ke saath koi jhadga hua?
Daya: Woh...kuch nahi sir...woh personal baat hai.
ACP: Daya, baat personal tab hoti hai jab uska official kaam par koi asar na pade. Yahan tum dono ek doosre se baat nahi kar rahe ho. Abhijeet transfer lena chahta hai. Koi investigation theek se nahi ho rahi hai! Main aaj ek important case ke baare mein discuss karna chahta tha...lekin Abhijeet office aana nahi chahta. Yeh ho kya raha hai?
Daya(surprised): Kya sir? Abhijeet transfer lena chahta hai?
ACP: Haan. aur tum mujhe bataao ki woh transfer kyon lena chahta hai.
Daya: Yeh aap Abhijeet se hi poochiye sir.
ACP: Daya, that's an order. Sach sach bataao ki tum dono ke beech mein kya hua.
Daya: Sir...maine Shreya ko ek letter likha tha.Aur Abhijeet se kaha ki Shreya ko de do. Lekin Abhijeet ne woh letter use nahi diya. Aur Shreya kisi aur se shaadi ke liye tayyar ho gayi.
ACP: Usne letter nahi diya aur tum naraaz ho gaye! Tum naraaz ho gaye aur woh transfer lena chahta hai. Hey bhagwaan...tum log CID ke senior officers ho ya college ke bachche?
Daya: Sir, yeh mera personal maamla hai. Iska main mere kaam par koi asar nahi padne doonga.
ACP: Lekin humare team par iska asar pad raha hai! Isliye main chahta hoon ki yeh baat jaldi sulajh jaaye. Tumne Abhijeet se poocha nahi ki usne letter kyon nahi diya
Daya: Haan sir...lekin usne mujhe nahi bataaya.
ACP: Aur tumne dobaara poochna zaroori nahi samjha! Jaao Daya...aur tum dono ke beech jo bhi problem hai, kal subah tak use solve karke aana. That's an order!
Daya: Theek hai sir. Lekin mujhe nahi lagta Abhijeet mujhe kuch bataayega.
ACP: Main bhi usse baat karta hoon. Aur ek baat Daya.
Dekho main yeh nahi kehta ki CID officers ko shaadi nahi karni chahiye. Lekin agar pati aur patni ek hi team mein rahenge toh kaam par asar pad sakta hai. Isliye agar tumne Shreya se shaadi kar li toh mujhe tum dono me se ek ko headquarters transfer karna padega.
Daya: Aap theek keh rahe hain sir. Main samajh sakta hoon. Lekin iski zaroorat nahi padegi. Main ab chalta hoon.
ACP: Theek hai. Goodnight.
Daya: Good night sir.
Daya leaves. ACP calls Abhijeet.
Abhijeet: Hello sir.
ACP: Kal main ek important case ke baare mein tumsabko bataana chahta hoon. Theek 9 baje bureau pohonch jaana.
Abhijeet: Lekin sir...maine aapko bataaya tha...main ab CID Mumbai ka koi case nahi lena chahta. Mujhe beech mein chodna padega.
ACP: Abhijeet, main tumhara transfer application reject kar raha hoon.
Abhijeet: Lekin kyon sir?
ACP: Mujhe pata chala hai ki tum CID isliye chodna chahte ho kyonki tumhara Daya ke saath jhagda hua hai. Kya is team mein sirf Daya hai? Hum sab nahi? Daya se naaraaz ho toh poori team par gussa kyon utaar rahe ho? Tum kahin nahi jaa sakte. Yeh mera faisla hai.
Abhijeet: Sir, aap meri baat samjhne ki koshish kijiye...
ACP: Be professional Abhijeet. Daya tumhare ghar aata hi hoga. Jo bhi galat fehmi hai baat karke suljha lo. Aur subah theek 9 baje bureau mein aa jaana. That's an order.
Abhijeet(half hearted): Theek hai sir.
ACP: Abhijeet, tumne Daya ka letter Shreya ko kyon nahi diya - Daya ko bata do. Good night.
Abhijeet: Good night sir.
Scene : Abhijeet's house.
Abhijeet was secretly happy that ACP had rejected his transfer. After he returned from ACP's house he was dreading that ACP might accept it and he might have to leave Mumbai CID forever for such a silly reason. He was happy that Daya was coming to talk to him after a long time. He waited eagerly.
The bell rang. Abhijeet opened the door. As expected it was Daya.
Daya: ACP sir ne bheja hai.
Abhijeet: Jaanta hoon. Andar aa jaao.
Daya came in and sat down on the sofa. For a few minutes there was an awkward silence.
Daya: ACP sir ne bataya ki tumne transfer ke liye aaply kiya hai.
Abhijeet: Theek suna tumne.
Daya: Lekin kyon?
Abhijeet: Tum achchi tarah jaante ho kyon...meri muh se sunna chahte ho?
Daya: Ok, boss sorry. Main tumse naraaz tha, lekin mere paas bhi naaraz hone ki wajah thi...tumne mujhe nahi bataaya ki woh letter tumne Shreya ko kyon nahi di.
Abhijeet: Bureau mein baat karne ka mauka nahi mila. Wahan kabhi Purvi, kabhi Freddie humari baate sun rahe the. Tum ek baar mujhse ghar aake pooch sakte the ki baat kya hai. Lekin nahi...tumhe bureau mein sabke saamne jhagda karna tha.
Daya: Woh...main thoda upset tha isliye...lekin main ab aa gaya hoon, Ab toh bataao.
Abhijeet: Actually Shreya ke dad ne mujhe letter dene se rok diya.
(explains the whole scene)
Daya is silent, shocked.
Abhijeet: Kya soch rahe ho?
Daya: Abhijeet, main soch raha hoon ki agar Shreya mujhe sachmuch chahti thi, toh usne Siddharth se shaadi karne se mana kyon kiya? Woh ek educated, modern ladki hai...CID officer hai. Usne chup chaap shaadi ke liye haan kaise keh diya?
Abhijeet: Ab woh mujhe nahi pata. Shreya ke papa ne use emotionally blackmail kar diye honge aur yeh baat woh kisi ko nahi bata paa rahi hai.
Daya: Samajh mein nahi aa raha hai ki main kya karoon.
Abhijeet: Is waqt kuch mat karo. Agar woh tumhe chahti hai toh woh Siddharth se shaadi nahi karegi. Yeh tumhe ek-do mahine mein pata chal jaayega. Aur agar usne Siddharth se shaadi ki, toh iska matlab hai ki ...
Abhijeet: Itne din jab intezaar kar liya hai toh ek-do mahine aur intezaar karke dekh lo.
Daya: Har baar mere saath aisa kyon hota hai...pehle woh Sonali, phir woh Purvi, aur ab yeh...
Abhijeet: Tum us Anila ko bhool gaye?
Daya: Kaun Anila?
Abhijeet: Wohi inspector sahiba jisse tumhari shaadi hui thi!
Daya(blushes): Tum nahi sudhroge!
(both of them have a laugh)
Abhijeet, dobaara transfer aur resignation ki baat mat karna.
Abhijeet: Mujhse keh rahe ho? Tum bhi humesha resignation type karke tayyar rakhte ho.
Daya: Woh alag baat hai.
... and the convo continues. Duo were friends once again!
