Garv and Kumud are "told" to go on their honeymoon to Paris. Kumud is packing her clothes when she wears Garv's shirt over her salwar and imitates him.
K2: (She turns around) Oh Garv! Main to sirf tumhare shirts— (She realizes that she's wearing one of them) Umm…wo main kapde pack kar rahi thi to…you know.
G: Of course, I know. Tumhe to har waqt mazak karne ki adat hai.
K2: You mean… (Malini calls Garv)
Garv goes to Malini's room.
G: Yes, mom….aap ne mujhe boolaya.
M: Haan, wo beta main tumhe kuch batana chahti hoon.
M: Beta, Kumud is ghar mein naye hai, wo yaha par kisi ko janti bhi nahi hai. Wo tumhari zimmidari hai aur tumhe uske khayal rakhna hai.
G: Mujhe patah hai, par aap yeh sabh mujhe kyun bata rahi hai? Kya Kumud ne aapse kuch—
M: Nahi, nahi usne mujhse kuch nahi kaha par patah nahi beta mujhe aisa lagta hai ki tum dono ke beech mein kuch—
G: (Interupts) Oh, come on Mom. Aisa kuch nahi hai. Aap bahut sochti hai.
He leaves for the GK room.
K2: (She has finished the packing) Maa ne kya kaha.
G: Kuch nahi.
K2: What do you mean kuch nahi? Mummyji ne kuch to kaha hoga.
G: Tumhe yeh janna zaroori nahi hai.
K2: Ok, fine.
G: (Raises both of his eyebrows) Fine.
Kumud walks away.
The next day, Kumud and Garv leave for the airport.
In the airplane…
K2: (She's bored.)
G: (He's working busily on his laptop)
The hostess/whatever comes with some food trays/whatever.
G: One glass of orange juice please.
The hostess looks over to Kumud.
G: Kumud, tum kuch khaogi?
K2: No, thanks, mujhe bhook nahi hai.
G: Are you sure? Humein abhi kaaf der tak yaha rehna hai.
K2: Yes, I'm sure.
About 5 hours later they reach the Paris Airport. They check-in at their assigned hotel. (Yeah, Malini had already reserved them a room.)
They enter the room.
The hotel attendant brings their samaan.
K2: Garv…hum yaha par kitne dino ke liye aaye hai?
G: Patah nahi.
K2: Oops, main to bhool hi gaye thi. Tumse to sawal poochna hi bekar hai.
G: Toh phir poochti kyun ho?
K2: You're right. Is mein kasoor mera hai. Par tum fikar mat karo abh main tumse kuch nahi poochungi. Nothing at all!
She goes and changes into western clothes. Garv is looking out the window. (I don't know what he's thinking about every time.) Kumud goes leaves the room and Garv just hears the door bang behind her.
Kumud wanders around and finally reaches a bar. She goes and sits at a booth. She thinks about Kkusum and how she got forced to get married. And then she thinks about how Garv is stiff character wise. She gets frustrated and drinks. (Daaroo! Whisky!)
Back to the hotel room…
Malini calls and this is how the conversation goes.
G: Mom? Aapko yaha ka number kaha se mila?
M: Maine hi yeh hotel book kiya tha. Acha, tum dono tikh tarah se pahuch gaye ho right?
G: Haan, hum tikh hai.
M: Kumud kaha hai?
G: Kumud? Wo…maa…Kumud…hmm…
M: Kya hua? Tum is tarah se kyun—
G: Wo maa, Kumud bathroom mein hai.
M: Oh, acha koi baat nahi. Acha beta mera wo baat yaad rakhna. Kumud abh tumhari zimmidari hai. Usse sambhal kar rakhna.
G: Haan maa.
M: Acha to main phone rakhti hoon.
They hang up.
G: Phew! Bach gaya. Yeh Kumud bhi kaha chali gaye.
He remembers her mother's philosophical words. "Kumud abh tumhari zimmidari hai."
So he goes out searching for her.
Back to the bar place…
Some drunken French men/boys approach Kumud but Garv reaches there before they do, so they leave.
G: Kumud, tum yaha par kya kar rahi ho.
K2: (She squints her eyes to see if it's really Garv. She's drunk.) Garv? Tum yaha. (She stands up, almost falling.)
G: Aao mere saath.
K2: Ok. Yes boss. (She salutes him)
G: (He holds her arm and takes her to their room.)
In their room…
G: Kumud, kya zaroorat thi sharaab peene ki?
K2: Sharaab? Maine?
G: Tum hosh mein nahi ho. Kal baat karenge.
He helps her on the bed.
G: (On the sofa.)
Two of his consciences appear. One is the evil one and the other is a non-evil one.
G: Maine maa ki baat nahi maani.
E: (He appears) To kya huwa, tumne yeh shaadi apne marzi se nahi ki. Yeh shaadi karwai gaye thi. Yeh sirf ek samjhota hai. It's just a compromise.
N: To kya tum abh bhi Kali ko chahte ho? Wo to sirf Nakul se pyaar karti hai. Tumhe aage badhna hai Garv, beete huwe kal ko bhula kar.
G: Par main Kumud ko pyaar nahi karta. Main to usse janta bhi nahi.
E: To phir kyun is shaadi ke bandhan mein bandhe ho. Todh do yeh shaadi.
N: Kya tum apne maa ke khilaaf jaoge? Tumhari maa ne kai sapne dekhe honge.
E: Shaadi to tumse huwi hai to maa kyun faisla karegi.
N: Soch samajh kar faisla karna.
E: Is mein sochne waali kya baat hai?
Non-evil and Evil both disappear.
Garv walks over to Kumud.
G: Patah nahi tumhari kya majboori thi.
All night he thinks about everything, the consciences, his mom, himself etc.
The next morning…
K2: (Wakes up. Has a headache from the drinking.)
G: Kumud yeh lo. (He gives her nimboo-pani)
G: Tumhari sar dard kam karega.
K2: (Thinks) Isko kya ho gaya, achanak meri tabiyat ki itna fikar.
She takes it and drinks.
G: Waise kal raat ko tumne kuch zaada hi pi li thi.
K2: Maine? Really?
G: (Thinks) Isko to kuch yaad hi nahi hai. Yeh iski pehli baar thi?
K2: Kahin maine kuch—
G: Nahi, anyways main tumse kuch kehna chahta hoon.
K2: (Thinks) Mujhse? Isko kya ho gaya. Ram ram ram ram.
G: Wo Kumud…
G: I'm sorry.
G: Maine tumhare saath tikh tarah se pesh nahi aaya isiliye. Main ek naye shuruwaat karna chahta hoon, to friends? (He extends his hand out)
K2: (Thinks) Thank God, maine to socha tha ki yeh mujhse…anyways…(Back to reality) Friends.
They both shake hands.
