EXT.PARK. EVENING
Sunset over the city, dark clouds.
We see a park. People busy with their evening walk.
We see Vibhuthi Nag, an old man, dressed in white clothes in his
late 40's, very tall and imposing with searching eyes walking
along with a powerful politician in his 60's! We see a few body
guards following them!
VIBHUTHI NAG
You know me ministerji; I really prefer
to stay away from power and money. I
can't meet him!I just helped you like a
friend would!
MINISTER
Oh please don't say that guruji.I came
out of my depression and I improved a
lot as an orator after meeting you.
I know you helped me as a friend, and
you didn't expect anything from me.
Just do me one more favour. CM is under
a lot of stress. Only you can help him!
VIBHUTHI NAG
I will think about it!
MINISTER
Thank you guruji, thanks a lot!
We see a man (mid thirties, muscular) jogging towards them. He
reaches them and stops. He salutes the minister!
DSP
Good evening sir.
MINISTER
Good evening DSP, how are you?
DSP
Very good sir.
Professor notices DSP.
MINISTER
Professor , this is DSP Manoj, the best
cop I ever saw. He rescued me once from
a naxal attack!I already told you.
and this is professor Vibhuthi nag..
Manoj! famous yoga teacher and an
authority in psychology!

Professor and DSP nod at one another! they shake hands!


DSP
Professor Nag, i heard a
sir!

VIBHUTHI NAG
Oh I am a simple professor! but I really
heard a lot about your adventures, glad
to meet you!
MINISTER
Absolutely professor!, he is
intelligent, honest and the most
fearless guy I ever came across!He can
do anything; a hell raiser!
Vibhuthi Nag is thrilled to hear these words!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Oh! sounds interesting!
Minister looks at his watch.
MINISTER
Well gentlemen, I have to go now! You
guys can carry on!
Professor please think about the favour
I asked you!
PROFESSOR
I will.
Minister leaves. Profosser is quiet interested in DSP now!
PROFESSOR
Please walk with me young man! I can't
run with you!
They both smile.
DSP
Sure professor
They continue to walk!
PROFESSOR
A very powerful statement, An
intelligent, honest and fearless man..
he can do anything!
Tell me officer do you believe you are
that type?
DSP smiles!

DSP
Well I can't comment about intelligence
and I try my best to be honest!.. But I
have to say one thing. I am fearless!
that is for sure and I mean it!
Professor observes DSP very carefully!!
PROFESSOR
Well, I doubt it!
DSP is taken aback!
DSP
What?
PROFESSOR
I doubt it. I don't think you are
intrepid! I see fear in your eyes!
DSP recovers from the shock. He smiles at the professor.
DSP
Is this a challenge ? You know,I've been
craving for my adventures for a long
time now!
Professor doesn't answer!!
DSP
Tell me professor, is this a challenge?
PROFESSOR
Okay, come over to my residence tonight!
DSP stops walking, he looks at professor. They are competing
with each other now.
DSP
Sure professor, I'll be there tonight!
PROFESSOR
Well, I'll see you then.
DSP
ciao
DSP leaves, professor continues his walk.
We see Arvind and Meghana walking in the opposite direction.
ARVIND
Maggy, you need to take some time off
after completing that project. You are
working too hard!

MEGHANA
Yeah, I know.But this project will
accelerate my career. I will need a long
vacation after this!
ARVIND
Shall we go someplace? Ladakh maybe.
Meghana smiles silently and as they continue their walk,
Arvind and Meghana walk past the professor. Arvind feels that he
saw him somewhere, he keeps staring at professor. A sense of
trepidation looms over his eyes.Professor doesn't notice them,
he walks away.
ARVIND
I saw this man somewhere!
MEGHANA
Whom?
ARVIND
The person , who just walked past us!
Meghana casually glances back.
MEGHANA
May be, he too comes here regularly...
Arvind shrugs.
ARVIND
May be
They move ahead!
CUT TO:
EXT. VIBHUTHI NAG'S HOUSE. NIGHT
A very isolated house. A red car parks in front of it.
We see Vibhuthi Nag entering his house.
INT. VIBHUTHI NAG'S HOUSE. NIGHT
We see a queer room full of eccentric things and spooky
drawings. A staff entwined by two serpents! the symbol of
kundalini.
Room full of oil lamps(mud) in the form of two snakes and a
place to sit in between them and a fire place!
A collection of strange objects like number of small bottles
having different leaves. A huge shelf of books.

A table full of papers and writings and on the table we see a


small book with a fully blossomed flower inscribed on it.
Professsor enters the room, in a black dhoti!
He begins to write on those papers. 'Test : level 4 : Intense
Fear"
He begins to meditate. (Tantric Music).
Manoj reaches the house ( we hear footsteps )..professor
smiles... and when Manoj is about to knock, we hear the voice of
professor "Come in Manoj".
Manoj enters the room.
Pointing to the seat in front of him, Professor says,
PROFESSOR
Sit down Manoj.
DSP
As you say Professor!
Manoj sits before the Professor and gives him a 'now what?'
look.
Professor looks at Manoj with great intensity! He takes out a
paper, and keeps writing few numbers and symbols. He looks at
the DSP.
PROFESSOR
I still see fear in your eyes.
DSP smiles, this time an insulting one!
DSP
Come on Professor, Don't keep repeating
the same words, if you think you can
scare me with these spooky scribblings
and your attire, you are going to be
disappointed!
PROFESSOR
Fine then. Tell me why do you think you
are fearless.
DSP
Well, I fought a bunch of Maoists all
alone with almost nothing! I spent a
night in a graveyard all alone again,
to bust a drug racket.
Professor smiles.. he writes few more symbols..
PROFESSOR

Its more like showing off to others that


you are fearless Manoj!
DSP gets serious!! He takes his revolver out and keeps it right
before professor's face.
PROFESSOR
Let me first test you Professor!
Professor gives a crooked smile!
PROFESSOR
Shoot me DSP, but that shows your
fear!..look at this first..
Professor gives him the page in which he was drawing those
symbols .. DSP looks at it and goes into a trance!
Professor's voice changes , he is playing with DSP now!He leans
towards DSP and whispers to him!
PROFESSOR
May be DSP, fear is not in darkness, may
be fear is in the light.May be fear
isn't caused by others, may be it is
within.
DSP is now scared. He throws the paper into the fire.We see a
symbol with multiple triangles drawn on the paper!
DSP
I will leave professor. I should get
going!
Professor keeps smiling!
PROFESSOR
Good night then. Get some rest.
Manoj is still shell shocked. He staggered out of the room.. he
starts to run then.. he runs out of the house into the darkness,
we here the panting sounds!...
Professor closes his eyes and continues to meditate! We here
more tantric music (Drums).
TITLES
Animated series of symbols and codes.. and few rishis meditating
and few numbers and few organic comounds...
INT. MEGHANA'S OFFICE ROOM. DAY
Meghana sitting in front of her manager. She is tensed and
manager is quiet annaoyed with her!

MANAGER
I completely believed in you Meghana,
and put you in charge of the project and
you messed it up! There is nothing I can
do now!
MEGHANA
Everyone agreed to the initially
proposed solution and now if it is not
working, its not fair to point finger at
me. You are making me the scapegoat.
MANAGER
well, it is technically your project.
Right? This screw up means we will loose
the client. And it all happened under
your watch.
(Pause).I am sorry, you may leave now!
A dejected Meghana comes out of the room. She doesnt know what
to do! She picks up her phone and makes a call. We see
Dr.Reddy's R&D lab, and we see Arvind working on few lab tests!
he picks up the phone!

Meghana smiles!
ARVIND

Arvind suddenly gets serious and worried!
ARVIND

wish we could run away somewhere and
lead a simple life!
MEGHANA

RAJ

DHEERAJ

RAJ

brother and he won a gold. He did better
than I did.
You can call your parents and say you
achieved something, and they will feel
proud, but I can't because my elder
brother did everything!
Raj gets back to his work; Dheeraj sighs ... Dheeraj sits on his
cot and tries to open his laptop!.. Raj suddenly remembers

himself himself six times!! I cant even

He is mentally unstable!
HARSHA
I knew him personally doctor, I cannot
believe this !

He sits in a meditating pose and takes the red hot rod into his
hands slowly, as if it is a gift!
No sign of pain, hot fumes rising from his hands due to burning
of the skin but there is still no emotion on his face. He looks
at his hands, he could see his hand burning but he doesn't feel
it. He releases the rod and sees his fist, its badly burnt. He
walks straight and picks up a bottle of medicine, applies the

Raj looks at Dheeraj and he notices an Ad in the paper!!. He
gets serious and snatches the paper and looks at it! Dheeraj is
confused!
DHEERAJ
Buddy, dont tell me that you are
developing interest in suicides now!
Raj doesnt answer , he keeps looking at the paper.
DHEERAJ

RAJ
This is a code man!.. he is looking for

17

someone who can solve it..


RAJ
This my friend is a binary code,
Raj underlines few numbers,
DHEERAJ
and this is a maze!.. we need these
numbers to get out of it!
RAJ
Come, lets do this!
They begin decoding the puzzle!... time lapse.. We see raj
writing the words, 'Serpent', 'light', 'eternal darkness'...
Dheeraj writes 'mind' 'power'!
raj reads it aloud!
RAJ
so here is the final one! "UNCOIL THE
SERPENT OF LIGHT IN ETERNAL DARKNESS.
MIND IS PATH TO PERPETUAL POWER

HARSHA
Yes sir, I know.. he is a role model for

18

many of us!
Minister nods. minister signals him to walk with him!
MINISTER
Any updates on his case? I can't believe
that he committed suicide!
HARSHA
We are going no where sir! This is an
absolute mystery... you know he stays
alone and is unmarried! So I couldn't
even gather any personal information or
any abnormalities in recent times!
They reach the minister's car!
MINISTER
I too met him recently in the park! He
looked perfectly normal to me!
Anyways, keep me updated on this case!
He gets into the car, cars starts!!..Suddenly minister asks the
driver to stop the car. He calls Harsha!

knocks

19

VIBHUTHI NAG
Yes yes.. we met in a park!.. come on in
.. lets talk inside!
Harsha enters the room, Vibhuthi Nag closes the door.Harsha
sitting on a table, questioning professor!.
HARSHA
Did you notice any abnormalities, in his
behaviour?
VIBHUTHI NAG
When we met him he was good, but you see
, his assumptions are all wrong.. and
may be that led to this suicide!
HARSHA
What assumptions?
VIBHUTHI NAG
He says he is fearless
HARSHA
He is the most daring cop I ever saw!
VIBHUTHI NAG
That's the problem, daring actions come
out of fear! There is lot of fear in
him! This lead to an argument.. He
prolonged it.. became mentally
unstable.. and committed suicide!
Officer is in shock.He is gripped by fear , he reaches out for
his pistol. Vibhuthi nag smiles!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Don't worry officer , I won't do
anything to you. I will also explain you
everything!All you need to do is listen
with patience and concentration!
Professor looks into his eyes. Their eyes are interlocked.
VIBHUTHI NAG
Can you do it officer?
HARSHA
Definitely professor!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Good!
Professor keeps a shiny object before the officer.
VIBHUTHI NAG
Just keep looking at it officer , and

20

breath.. its all about breathing..!


Harsha keeps looking at the bright object! Professor slowly
keeps his hands on Harsha's shoulders and starts pressing them
in rhythm! Harsha is choking for breath.. Professor slowly
increases the pressure!
Suddenly a snake uncoils from the bright object and enters into
the officer!.. He collapses there!
A satisfactory smile professor's face!
VIBHUTHI NAG
You work for me now !
Door bell rings!
VIBHUTHI NAG
It seems more luck will follow today ...
Vibhuthi Nag locks the room and reaches the main door, Raj and
Dheeraj waiting outside!
He opens the door and smiles at them.
VIBHUTHI NAG
So you guys solved the puzzle!
Both of them look at one another. Vibhuthi Nag taps on the news
paper slip in Raj's pocket! They both smile!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Well, come on in!
They walk towards the table!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Who solved this? you or you?
RAJ
We as a team solved it!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Together... ? this is not a team work..
If I say I will take only one of you,
the guy who solved this.. what will you
do?
RAJ
we will leave sir !!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Are you sure!
Raj and Dheeraj start walking away! Vibhuthi Nag stops them!

21

VIBHUTHI NAG
Okay, you can work together as of now!
but I don't think this will be possible
for you later!
RAJ
We will be together , whatever it is!
Vibhuthi nag gives a sharp look,
VIBHUTHI NAG
We will see, so tell me ,why did you
come here!
DHEERAJ
To learn what you promised in the Ad!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Good, to illuminate the mind.. so tell
me what do you think mind is?
Our guys look at each other!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Your mind is your true teacher, what
ever you learn, you learn it from your
mind, I say decode your mind, you can
decode anything! you can control
anything!
I can teach you that, in return you
solve me more puzzles!
RAJ
No offense sir, how can we believe you?
Vibhuthi Nag smiles..
VIBHUTHI NAG
I will demonstrate something for you,
use that cloth and come and cover my
eyes!!
Raj reaches the professor and ties his eyes.
VIBHUTHI NAG
Now send the other guy to the next room,
tell him to drop any number of items he
likes on the floor, I will come and pick
them up in the same order!
Both the kids get more curious! Raj tells Dheeraj to go and drop
few items. Dheeraj rushes to the next room. Dheeraj drops a
tumbler first, then a spoon.. this time walks back and drops a
sponge.. suddenly moves to another corner and drops a pen!

22

DHEERAJ
Yes, ready!
Vibhuthi Nag walks swiftly and follows the exact path Dheeraj
followed and picks the fallen stuff! Raj looks at Dheeraj to
confirm if it is correct! But Dheeraj is looking at Vibhuthi nag
in awe!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Okay kids, you can open my eyes now!
Both of them come to their senses! Raj removes the cloth used to
cover Professor's eyes.
VIBHUTHI NAG
This is a small demonstration! I can
teach you much better stuff!
He gives them few papers..
Solve these three puzzles..symbols,
numbers and words! that's the game! I
will teach you higher levels of
hypnotism if you can solve them!
RAJ
We will do anything for you if you
promise to teach us all you know sir!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Okay.. granted.. I began to like you!
Raj is thrilled! Dheeraj feels left out!
DHEERAJ
Yes sir, we will solve these within no
time!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Good luck then, I will be waiting! by
the way I forgot to ask your names!
DHEERAJ
Dheeraj and Raj!
VIBHUTHI NAG

to drag you into that at all!!
MEGHANA
Hmm.. we all made our share of mistakes
... Did I ever tell you the story of
Nahusha!
ARVIND
Nahusha?

24

MEGHANA
Yup
ARVIND
Nashusha, the snake!
MEGHANA
He was a king before , such a mighty
king, that he was offered the post of
Indra, when Indra was in exile!!
He reached a position, which no other
human achieved!
ARVIND
Then why did he become a serpent?
MEGHANA
Mistakes, like everyone he had his
faults, He lusted 'Sachi devi' wife of
Indra.. he made the saptha rishis to
carry him in a palanquin.. he kicked
with his foot, the great rishi Agasthya
who was carrying him! THe rishi cursed
him to live like an ordinary serpent on
the earth!
And then he fell down ..and down and
down....from heaven
ARVIND
Pity
MEGHANA
But the beauty is, after falling down,
Nahusha says, " yes, I did fall down,
But I didn't reach Indra's position,
without making any mistakes, I just
stood up and came back strong whenever I
fell down!,I wish to rise and move
forward, I wish not just to rise for
myself.... O Gods I beseech you to rise
along with me!!!
Both of them keep looking at the moon.
ARVIND
You are an angel Meghana!

Dheeraj walking through the bushes, we see Raj sitting on a
stone and solving few graphs!
DHEERAJ
What the fuck man, we left all our works
and we are working on these puzzles all
the time given by a mad professor!
RAJ
There is definitely something in this.
That's for sure. We can achieve Super
brains!
DHEERAJ
I am wondering if I should continue or
not. I felt a pang of jealousy when he
showed special interest on you!
Raj smiles
RAJ
I feel that almost all the time when my
brother is around. But I never quit! We
both will never fight for such small
things don't worry!
Dheeraj nods.
RAJ
Did you solve the one you are working
on?
DHEERAJ
Yes man... it took me a week.. but I
finally managed to solve it!.. it think
they are music notes! god knows what has
music to do with all this ... what about
you?
RAJ
I too solved the first one.. it was an
integral... and the graph gave me a body
posture..
He shows him the Laptop... a graphical curve of a human body!
RAJ
What about the last one? Any ideas?
DHEERAJ
No, I gave up on it!
RAJ
I solved half of it.. few numbers.. but

27

couldnt go any further!!


Both remain silent for sometime!
DHEERAJ
What shall we do now?
RAJ
I can think of only one thing!..
DHEERAJ
What is it?
RAJ
To take the help of my brother!
INT.ARVIND ROOM. NIGHT
Arvind reading a novel, he hears the door bell and opens it, he
is thrilled to see Raj there!
ARVIND
What a surprise bro, this is the first
time you came to room after I shifted
here!...
Arvind keeps a hand on Raj's shoulders. He is really glad that
his brother came to his room!
ARVIND
Come on in!.. take whatever you want
from fridge!
Raj helps himself to a coke, and sits next to Arvind!
ARVIND
What's up man?
RAJ
Nothing much bro, I was solving a puzzle
, numbers and codes... just thought you
might help!
ARVIND
Sure bro, let me have a look at it!
Raj gives him the paper.. with numbers! Arvind takes a pencil
and is seriously involved in it. He scribbles something and
tears down the pages few times. Finally a smile appears on his
face.
ARVIND
These are tetradecimals... this is a
carbon compound!
Raj is quiet thrilled by the pure genius thinking!

28

RAJ
How did you guess it? I was looking at
the same numbers for days!
ARVIND
There are no hard and fast rules to
solve a puzzle, its more about hit and
trail, and I do the math fast!
RAJ
Thanks a ton bro!
They give a 'cheers' with their cool drink cans!
INT. VIBHUTHI NAG'S HOUSE. NIGHT
Raj and Dheeraj are at professor's house.
VIBHUTHI NAG
Aah, my favourite students! I assume,
that you solved the puzzles then!
RAJ
Yes we did!
Raj hands few piece of papers, Vibhuthi nag looks at them and is
happy at the results!
VIBHUTHI NAG
I know you have lots of questions. But I
wanted to test what you are capable of,
before telling anything about this!
Because I believe only the best deserve
the best!
Professor looks at them! they are listening his every word
carefully!
VIBHUTHI NAG
I came from a small village, my father
is a poor mason, I too would have become
one, if I hadnt had this will, to learn
and improve!
DHEERAJ
How did you develop this interest and
how did you learn all this ?
Professor smiles!
VIBHUTHI NAG
A group of conjurers gave a performance
in our school, when I was a kid! I ran
away from my home following them! with
just hundred rupees in my pockey, I

29

stole from my father! I am thirteen


years old then!
I found the troop and joined and it was
fun for few weeks, then I understood
that they are performing just some
tricks... I asked a conjurer , if we can
do them in real? He said only a yogi can
do it and asked me to go to Haridwar and
find one!
May be he said it out of sarcasm, but i
left them and reached Haridwar and
started search for yogas, I worked as a
porter to survive!
RAJ
That was one hell of an adventure sir
VIBHUTHI NAG
You are saying this because I succeeded,
else you would have said, its the
dumbest thing you ever heard!
Raj has no answer for this!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Finally I was hired by few Europeans who
came on the same purpose, when ever they
went into forests to meet sages I used
to carry the luggage for them.They
recorded everything they learnt in this
'book' before they passed away! the last
man Alexander Caine gave me this book.
He shows them an old book,with a symbol of a blossomed flower on
it! two of them look at it in awe!
VIBHUTHI NAG
I learnt a lot from them, but still I
need to learn a lot.. so you help me in
solving few puzzles in it, I teach you
what I learnt !!..
Prof looks at Raj and Dheeraj.
VIBHUTHI NAG
Is that a deal
Raj and Dheeraj look at one another.
BOTH
Yes professor, it's a deal!
professor gives few more papers!.. Raj

takes them!

30

VIBHUTHI NAG
These are a bit tougher than the
previous ones, lets see what you can
do!.. good luck!
RAJ
You promised me to teach hypnotism!
VIBHUTHI NAG
Perks huh, I am sorry I forgot! The
puzzles you solved, they give you the
power to control others. its just a
temporary effect though!
The position you drew, its a pose to
awaken 'the kundalini'!, the organic
compound activates your
subconsciousness.. its called
'nartropics' and the music notes... its
a shamanic method to reach out for
higher spirits!
These three as a whole take you to
another level of understanding. You can
make people do whatever you want them
to!... Come i will teach you to play the
tones!
They walk to the next room, drum beats! Scary house of Vibhuthi
Nag, standing alone , away from the city!

falls down on the ground. Dheeraj rushes to him and sprinkles
some water! Raj slowly wakes up!
DHEERAJ
Raj, lets stop this! lets forget all
this!
RAJ
No way, I want this!! And we both will
do this!
