Saajan: Dear Ila, your husband sounds like a busy man. Life is very busy these days. There are too many people, and everyone wants what the other has. Years ago, you could find a place to sit in the train every now and then, but these days, it's difficult. If Mr. Deshpande (Ila's invalid uncle upstairs) wakes up now, he will see the difference and probably go back to his Orient ceiling fan.
When my wife died, she got a horizontal burial plot. I tried to buy a burial plot for myself the other day, and what they offered me was a vertical one. I've spent my whole life standing in trains and buses, now I'll have to stand even when I'm dead.
Saajan: No one buys yesterday's lottery ticket, Ila. I came to the restaurant while you were waiting. There you were. Fidgeting with your purse. Drinking all that water. I wanted to come up to you and tell you all this in person, but I just watched you wait. You looked beautiful. You're young. You can dream. And for some time, you let me into your dreams.
Shaikh: My mother always used to say...Always says: "Sometimes the wrong train will get you to the right station."
Saajan: Your mother says? But you told me you were an orphan.
Shaikh: I am, sir, but when I say "my mother always says" people take it more seriously. And it feels good.

This deceptively complex movie, in Hindi with English sub-titles, is like an onion in structure. We are introduced to the main characters whose life stories are gradually revealed layer by layer. A lunch box goes astray and an unexpected correspondence starts between strangers. As one character remarks "Life may send you on the wrong train to the right station."
