Mr. Walia: khamosh! Tum hamesha aise excuses dey kar oske galatiyaan chhupa deti ho. Ab se lekar shaadi tak, zoya ghar se bahar nahi jayegi. And that's my order!
Suddenly ghar ke bahar ek blast houne jaisa noise houta hai.
Mr. Walia sab ko bahar aane se mana karte hain aur khud bahar jakar dekhte hain. Ghar ke paas wale ground mein ek blast hua hai jahan crowd bhaag rahi houti hai. Kuch samajh nahi araha tha ke hua kya hai. Mr. Walia ko report milta hai ke terrorist ka ek group Pathankot mein enter karta hua paya gaya hai.
Mr. Walia ghar par sab logo ko alert karte hain ke woh ghar ke windows and doors ko lock kar ke rakhe. Aur koi bhi ghar se bahar naa jaye. Zoya aur Rani apne-apne room mein jaane lagte hain. Rani Zoya ko apne room ke lights aur windows band karne ko kehti hai.
Zoya apne room mein ajati hai. Woh door andar se lock kar leti hai aur jaldi se room ke windows bhi close kardeti hai. Ek noise houta hai. Zoya peeche palat ke dekhti hai tou kisi ne zoya ka haath pakad ke uska muh-band kardia.
Unknown: Ssshhh! Koi awaaz nahi!
Zoya dekhti hai ke uske room mein ees waqt ek terrorist hai.
Zoya is sitting with her family for the meal. Zoya says she is not feeling well and want to take the meal in her room. This goes on more 2 days.
Zoya was actually taking this meals to her room for that unknown stranger.
2 Days Later...
The stranger: Tum mere liye itni fikar (care) kyu kar rahi ho? Tum agar chahti tou apne gharwalon ko mere bare mein bata bhi sakti thi...
Zoya points her finger towards his locket, which was a significance that he believe in god, the locket he was wearing.
Zoya: Ees locket ko apne galey mein aapne pehen rakha hai... es se ye saabit hota hai ke aap allah ko maante hain.
The stranger: haan, tou?
Zoya: tou eska matlab yeh hai... jo allah ko manta hai woh koi bura kaam nahi karega...
Zoya leaves. This was it. The stranger could not help himself to get lost in thinking about what just zoya, an unknown girl to him, just said to him.
But he is suppose to follow the order.
Meanwhile, Zoya was in the kitchen with Rani and mrs. walia. Rani was talking about now it is the right for Zoya's marriage and teasing her. Zoya was thinking about the stranger, hiding and staying in her room for now 3 days. Zoya could was in the dilemma whether she should tell everyone or not. She decide to tell Rani, hoping Rani will understand that the stranger is hiding in her room is not actually a bad person and there is more probability that he may not of the terrorist.
Zoya ask Rani silently that she want to discuss about something. Zoya tells Rani that an unknown stranger is hiding in her room from past few days. Zoya tells everything to Rani. Rani get shock. Rani is worried that if her father get to know about this he will take unfortunate step. But Zoya clarifies that he may not be the one of those terrorists. Rani tells her it is totally foolish to believe his words. But somehow Zoya manages to convince Rani that he will never harm her family.
Zoya entered in the room and she found she is at a gun-point.
Zoya: kar do khatam mujhe... waise bhi ek anaath (orphan) ees duniya mein akeli hi houti hai. Lekin kya mujhe khatam kar dene se ya kisi aur ensaan ko maar dene se tumhare dil ko sukoon mill jayegi???
The Stranger: tou main kya karu? mere paas aur koi raasta bhi nahi hai...
Zoya: hai! Tum ees gunaaho ke raaste ko chhor ke hamesha ke liye, ek ache insaan bann sakte ho.
The stranger: nahi. ab bahut der ho chuki hai...
Zoya: der kabhi nahi houti. waqt insaan ka saath tab tak deta hai, jab tak insaan khud se haar nahi maan jata. Tum ek sahi insaan ke tarah apni zindagi jee sakte ho. tumhe bhi jeene ka haq hai. chhor do yeh sab!
The stranger: tum mere bare mein jaanti hi kitna ho? main nahi badal sakta.
Zoya: haan tum nahi badal sakte ho khud ko. Lekin agar tum chaho tou tum khud ko badal sakte ho thik waise, jaise tumne khud se ye faisla lia tha ek terrorist banne ka.
The stranger: tum jhooth bol rahi ho. Tum bhi mujhe akela chhor ke chali jaogi... thik waise jaise har kisi ne mujhe akela kar dia hai...
Zoya gives her hand and telling him: Yakeen maano... main tumhara saath dungi tumhe ek normal zindagi jeene ke liye... Mera naam Zoya hai... Tumhara naam kya hai?
The stranger: Armaan...
Zoya somehow find a place in the village-godown where Armaan can stay. Zoya everyday takes meal for Armaan.It is little far from the home and in less crowded area.
Zoya everyday teach him English and computers. She teach her everything so that no one doubt him. In a couple of months, Armaan manage to find a job in the village of Pathankot.
Zoya was happy to see that in 4 months she helped Armaan and made her promise successful. Armaan is now thankful and respect zoya, but all this time, something was bothering him.
Zoya keep meeting Armaan. But one day when she was leaving home to meet Armaan, a neighbor saw her and followed her. She see Zoya meeting a strange man in a village. She instantly tell this news to Mrs. Walia and show her Zoya meeting a man in the village as proof. Mrs. Walia is astonished to see this.
Mrs. Walia comes to see Zoya in her room. She ask her that she want to talk about something. Mrs. Walia says that from zoya's childhood, she was always like a daughter to herself. She never differentiated Zoya and her own daughter Rani. So for this twenty-years of relationship responsibility, Mrs. walia asks Zoya to marry a boy according to what Mr. & Mrs. Walia will choose for her.
Zoya promise Mrs. Walia that she will never go against their wishes. Rani overhears from the outside of the room. Mrs. Walia tells Zoya that a marriage proposal came for Zoya and the marriage will happen in next 4 days. Zoya is shocked to hear but she says she need some more time.
After some time, Rani comes and ask what will she do now. Zoya says she will talk to Armaan about this. Rani says she is still doing foolish to trust him.
Next Day Zoya goes to meet Armaan. What she saw was shocking. Villagers has tied Armaan in the center of the village area. Villagers are now aware that he was one of the terrorist who killed many people and now he is living among them. One of the villager recognized Zoya meeting Armaan. He shouted and tell everyone. Armaan told everyone that he does not know her. He was just using her as a cover so that he can protect himself. Zoya couldn't believe what she heard.
Villagers called Dharam Walia. Villagers are so angry that they want to kill this terrorist and everyone who is related with him. Dharam Walia asked Zoya if she know this guy. Zoya was scared but she admitted that she love him.
Villagers are angry and they blame Dharam Walia for supporting a terrorist. Dharam Walia slaps Zoya infront of everyone. He shoot Armaan and Zoya at the spot.
This way a society ended terrorism.
