EXT.IN THE CAR
VALI is driving, his phone rings looking at the caller ID he
frowns and answers it while he is driving. [Following
conversation takes place in a mix of english and Gujarati]
Yeah mum I’m here !
Mrs Musa called me…
Great… what did she say…
They really liked you son
VALI a little taken aback
Who liked me.. what?
Their daughter SHEREEN, she wants
to see you again
Mum.. i think you’ve probably got
the wrong end of the stick
No son, they specifically said they
really liked you, she really liked
Mum, shes not my type.
RABIA sounding a little disheartened
She wont mix well with us..
I’ll make her mix well
Mum look …
Talk to your father
[mutters under breath] Ahh shit..
VALI son, look theyre a nice
family, shes a nice girl
Dad, shes not my type i don’t want
to see her
You’ve met her the once ! meet her
Stop being awkward!
RABIA snatches the phone off YUSUF as he starts to raise his
VALI son, look theyre a nice
Mum, shes not my type, shes fat and
she has an attitude! imagine the
way she’ll talk to you and about
you if she had the audacity to talk
down to me while i was there !
YUSUF shouts in the background
Tell him to stop making excuses!!
VALI shouts in anger
Mum ! tell them no!!
Cuts the call and tosses the phone aside, as he pulls up at
(back to where we started)
VALI’s car pulls up, ASIF stands from his restful pose no
longer using the bat as a crutch as to which to lean on.
VALI gets out the car, slams the door. Tosses his jacket
aside, grabs the bat off ASIF, we hear a mumbling of pleas
from the person in the chair, VALI begins to pummel his leg
without saying a word. until he hears a snap, a loud muffle
scream escapes the victim in the chair.
VALI throws the bat aside and walks back towards his car.
Opening his boot he rifles though it, and finds a Stanley
knife. Standing before DANNY he exposes the blade, the fire
reflecting and dancing off the metallic sharp edge
RIZ and ASIF watch silently, the muffled screams of DANNY
get louder, tears rolling down his face
VALI makes a small incision on his cheek, DANNY releases a
Shut the fuck up..
VALI stops and looks at DANNY, he makes another larger cut
on his other cheek Just deep enough to scar
Now.. DANNY is it? this is whats
going to happen. I’m going to
remove this gag from your mouth.
When i do , you’re not going to
scream or cry or plead, all i want
is the name of the person who gave
them to you to deal. If you tell me
his name i will let you live, if
you don’t.. I’m going to peel your
VALI PATEL (cont’d)
face off with this here knife but
this time I’m going to heat the
blade up a little.. you know.. just
for kicks..Do you hear me DANNY
DANNY nods profusely
All i want to hear is the name..
its as easy as that DANNY.. you
VALI slowly peels off the tape, DANNY labors for breath
splutters and spits out a sizeable amount of blood
L….LEE … LEE DRIVER..
VALI looks back at RIZ
VALI grabs the tape and puts it back onto his mouth, trying
to keep DANNY’s head still as he applies it
You’ve made a few mistakes today
DANNY some small and some big ones
that will ultimately change your
life! The first mistake you made
DANNY was the fact that you were
dealing on my turf.. But your
biggest mistake was dealing to my
brother, and that i don’t take too
VALI looks over at RIZ, instructs RIZ so DANNy hears every
Break his arms and legs, and dump
him outside the hospital..
VALI walks towards ASIF, as RIZ starts swinging his golf
ASIF, get DAWOOD on the phone..
tell him to arrange a meet, we need
to set a few things straight
VALI pulls out a cigarette, lights it on the drum and
inhales as the camera pans out to the sound of dull thudding
as metal meets flesh and bone..
