Feeling okay now? Have your periods ever been delayed? – Why do you ask?
– No reason. Just tell me Yeah. Maybe a couple of times Delayed by 2-3 weeks? Not really What the hell is she doing! Why do you ask? Coming, sir Please ensure Ammu has healthy food She fainted during the game Look what happened now! This is exactly why I nag you
to have breakfast This is your crucial 10th grade Your dad will be mighty pissed if you
keep falling ill this way! I need to leave for work at the library.
Get changed soon Ammu… What’s the matter? What happened? There, there. Easy What is it? Get dressed. Let’s go to the hospital Staying healthy is crucial at this time I’m scared, with dengue
doing the rounds too God knows what diseases might spread
with all the trash in this area Ready yet? I think I’m pregnant What was that? I’m sorry, ma. I messed up.
I’m so sorry What did you say? Please don’t hurt me – You wretch! You’ll drag us into the mud
– I never meant to How could you do this? At this age too! How could this happen?
You’re 15! How could you! I didn’t mean to. I’m sorry I bet I never crossed your mind Get out. Out of my sight! Who was it? Hari Which Hari? A friend from the hockey class What the hell were you thinking?
You’re just a schoolkid! We never crossed your mind before you
did this? Wish you’d never been born I know I messed up.
Ma, please don’t cry Wipe your tears, quick! You’re home early. I thought
you’d be back by afternoon Took the first bus out of there Such a waste, visiting these relatives.
Unnecessary expenditure You’re still taking hockey lessons? Just this once. There’s an important
tournament coming up Don’t they have it every year? Does she want to shame me? She’ll end up
scoring a shameful 40 or 50%… …and have people mock the lecturer whose
daughter is a moron I won’t go anymore, dad.
I’m sorry Why the hell do you let her wear
such tiny shorts? Fine parenting, sending a teenaged girl out
dressed like that! I’d like to tell you something Sir, rules cannot be broken It’s bad enough having boys and girls
share the same bench Now you’re telling me, they were seen together
on a bike We cannot let this go, sir Doesn’t matter if it was on campus or
outside I’m sure they were up to no good No point blaming the students though.
It’s plain bad parenting Please call the parents for a meeting You wanted to say something? – My sister wanted to borrow 2000 rupees
– Here we go again! Go ahead. That’s 2000 bucks we’re never
seeing again I’m the one who messed up Scold me all you want I can’t bear to see you cry You need to think 10 times over before
you make a mistake And a 100 times over if you’re a girl.
Do you know why? Only you and I will bear the brunt of it I’m sorry. The fault is all mine I’ll do anything you ask me to Anything at all? Go die I shouldn’t have said that Why are you apologising?
I’m the one who messed up Please don’t hate me I’m here for you We’ll figure something out tomorrow.
I’ll take care of it I’m off then. Will be late tonight.
Take care Go on What should I do? You’re pregnant Sathya here. Ammu’s mother.
She’s in your class, X B She’s been very unwell since last night When did it happen? Three months ago Was anyone else present? No Either of your friends? No Tell me the truth. Don’t be afraid I’m only trying to help you Did you take any pictures or videos? No Has he told any of his friends? I don’t know. But I’m sure he hasn’t – Did he blackmail you?
– He likes me. He’d never do that Was it consensual? Tell me Hari, Ammu is pregnant I thought I’d give you a tight slap
when I met you But what’s the point! Just answer my questions truthfully
and I’ll get going Did you take any pictures or videos? Did you tell your friends? I swear I didn’t Tell me the truth. You’ve been with a girl
for the first time Didn’t you want to brag about it
to your friends? It wasn’t like that I really like Ammu We messed up. I’m really sorry What do your parents do? Let’s not tell them, aunty. Please They’ll kill me Didn’t think of that before doing it? We weren’t thinking We thought this was love You need to do one thing Don’t discuss this with anyone May I meet Ammu? Just to tell her how sorry I am Hari wants you to know
he is very sorry – You met with him?
– Yes. On the hockey ground I won’t speak to him anymore.
I promise May I ask you something? Won’t scold me, will you? Ask me Remember all the times I’ve asked you
for a baby brother… …shall we keep this baby? We can care for it together Having a baby isn’t that easy Your mind and your body… both
need to be prepared For a 10 month long penance And when that baby is born, there should be
celebration all around But the celebration and the joy
is possible only at the right age If you have it now, it will be bad.
Both for us and the baby Don’t you think? We mustn’t bring a life into this world,
filled with fear and hate Come here Who is it? My aunt works here. She’s unwell so
she sent me in her place Okay – I don’t want to have the baby
– Let’s not have the baby Wear something appropriate.
Let’s leave My clothes have gotten tight,
haven’t they? Lock the door. Let’s go Where are you both off to? To buy some groceries Why take her to the shop?
Let her be home and study We’ll go to the store 100 gms of tamarind and turmeric powder Sathya! Didn’t realise it was you My brother-in-law told me you bought
a pregnancy test kit at his pharmacy Expecting some good news? Been a while since you had
your first child, right? I’m sure it’ll be a boy this time I tested negative Oh no! Sorry to hear that You took a pregnancy test? Yes I thought you had your tubes tied? What’s going on? Just wanted to be safe I forgot the chicken. Could you please
get it from the store? You just keep making me run errands! Whose tragic flaw are you? Whose tragic flaw am I? Fading away as we seek answers Falling apart before the answers
are found Is life just an elusive dream? Just a dream O my life, my love,
my very own She can’t bear too much pain Go on. Why are you hesitant? You both messed up together But his life isn’t affected one bit He’s carrying on just the same You’re the one who suffered It’s all over now You shouldn’t have to hide away at home
in shame Your Board exams and tournament
are coming up. Concentrate on that I know you’ll never falter again If you trust yourself the same,
go right ahead Go on, Ammu!
