Jeeru ki Chaal... Bachcha Behaal [A Pakau Film Story]

Jeeru belonged to a poor family. They were so poor that he did not even know his surname. I mean, at that time, locating the next meal was more important than surnames and religions. Most of the family members (mom, dad, 4 sons - Jeeru being the youngest) begged at south Delhi traffic signals/temples and so on.

Jeeru's earliest childhood memories were the most significant ones. They take him to the time he was offered a 'Melody' toffee by a couple in a big car. Jeeru noticed the couple even had the 'Eclairs' toffees. He asked them for Eclairs instead of the Melody... only to be shunned away! 'Beggars can't be choosers', is what the guy behind the wheel said to him while rolling up the window in disgust. This hurt Jeeru big time. He ran away from his family in search of a new life. The beggars' population was all set to lose count by 1.

Jeeru quit begging and started selling mundane items. He worked very hard. Balloons, toys, incenses, gajraas, hair clips etc were some of his saleables. Being the intelligent guy he was, jumping jobs soon became a usual activity for him.

Interestingly, by jumping one job to another, Jeeru started gaining momentum in life. He was kind-of on track. He worked hard during the day... and at night cursed the rich in his thoughts. Jeeru claimed that the rich people lacked compassion... and were undeserving b******s!

With some years of work experience in bag, Jeeru joined a big hospital as an assistant nurse (ward boy). The training was basic and Jeeru did well in clearing the test. The salary from the job was good enough for Jeeru to maintain a savings bank account... which he planned to disperse at the time of marriage!

Things were going well and within six months of joining, Jeeru had been shifted to the labor room. His job was to take care of all the equipment that was used in meeting deliverables.... He was enjoying it...

A point to note here is that a ritual had become a part of Jeeru's life—regardless of whatever, Jeeru always used to curse the big-money guys who he used to encounter in the hospital... He used to think of them at night and wonder how artificial they were...
It was during the seventh month of the employment at the hospital that Jeeru reunited with his family. One of his brothers had tracked him through some desi word-of-mouth networking. Jeeru was kind of happy to meet them. Apparently, they had opened a pakora shop... and it was the only source of their livelihood. Interestingly, they had a special 'jeera' pakora in memories of their absconding family member.

The marital status of 2 of the brothers was same as Jeeru's; however, the eldest one had gotten married a year before and his wife, Laaji, was expecting.

Jeeru's dad saw the opportunity and asked him for a favor... "son, what if we get Laaji's labor done in your hospital?" Jeeru felt like running away the second time; however, he declined the idea. He later spoke to some senior doctors and they agreed for it—BUT only on the condition that Laaji will stay in one of the cheaper ward rooms post the operation!

On the day of the delivery, there were 3 other deliveries scheduled in that time frame. Jeeru had made sure all equipment was in place. Waiting outside the room, something weird had started cooking in his mind.

"What if I exchange Laaji's kid with the rich man's next door? We will get a fair kid in the family... Laaji will accept whatever is handed to her... The rich family in the next room will learn a lesson. How will they react when they can't choose to have a child of their own color?... beggars cant be choosers!"

Leveraging the power of his association with the hospital, he did! That day, a black baby got delivered to a white family... they were happy.

On this side, Jeeru's brother was sad. Initially, Jeeru thought his brother was doubting his wife for producing a white baby... but the brother soon revealed that his baby had born with a defect... the baby, although extremely fair, was deaf...

Jeeru now hates the rich more than before... while I hope he realizes 'hatred' is never the solution.


  1. This is crazzyyyy ..... :-)

    I am sure no actor worth his armpit salts will ever play this role!! May be, Tushaar Kapoor will..

    You never cease to amaze with your ideas... :-) Good read... keep blogging buddy..

  2. Ram Gopal Varma should direct this one... Entertaining tho!

  3. Good one Kshitij, well done. :)

  4. Hey, cant you do some sort of sequence to this story, just to ensure that the films ends with marriage and/or a big happy family for Jeeru singing a song (or in this case eating pakoras) to celebrate?

  5. @ SUd - you are such a motivation friend. I could write solely for you... and deliver to your personal email.

    Tushaar Kapoor I can still bear... but this Aftaab is what I run away from... lol... subjective shit.

    @ Saurabh - I am not sure about that.. RGV has his apprehensions.

    @ Shilpa - Thank u.. oh, I see that your pic is back.

    @ Ini - Nah... no sequence.. this one was boring and thinking about it's sequel is not a good idea. You can continue the story from here and give us a mini paragraph in the comment section... haha...

  6. yes it is back, all blogs that i follow show my pic, except yours. :P

  7. Very intelligently scripted story...good one!

    A few of my favourite lines (ur special touches) in the story are:

    * The beggars' population was all set to lose count by 1.

    * One of his brothers had tracked him through some desi word-of-mouth networking.

    * Interestingly, they had a special 'jeera' pakora in memories of their absconding family member.

    * Jeeru's dad saw the opportunity and asked him for a favor... "son, what if we get Laaji's labor done in your hospital?" Jeeru felt like running away the second time.

    *Jeeru thought his brother was doubting his wife for producing a white baby.
