-I want to visit several nightclubs.

0:04:340:04:40

Out!

0:05:530:05:54

Get out!

0:05:560:05:57

I'm sick of having you in my room, you little fart!

0:06:000:06:03

You are taking me to work with you today, right?

0:06:100:06:13

It's up to your mother.

0:06:130:06:15

-I'll just take it from him!

-That's enough!

0:07:000:07:03

Rosie Khala! I cannot stay in that apartment for a minute.

0:07:110:07:14

-Please take me with you!

-You heard your mother.

0:07:140:07:18

-Khala! Take me with you.

-She worries about you.

0:07:180:07:21

She will make me go with you if you ask her! Look at your hands.

0:07:210:07:25

-These are old!

-Training you is going to be more work than help for me.

0:07:250:07:30

I promise I will make your work easy.

0:07:300:07:33

You never stop! OK, just this once. Let's talk to your mother.

0:07:330:07:38

Rafina. Stay in your place.

0:08:260:08:28

-I've come back from America after so long.

-Back to Pakistan again.

0:08:350:08:40

No Fifth Avenue, no New York Times. Same men.

0:08:400:08:44

It's so different in New York.

0:08:440:08:47

The men our age are dating and having fun.

0:08:470:08:52

-When is he coming back from America?

-God knows when he'll return now.

0:08:520:08:57

He's gone there and... Ouch! The wax is so hot!

0:08:580:09:02

Rosie, you know how delicate my skin is.

0:09:020:09:05

You mean, how beautiful your skin is, madam. It's this girl.

0:09:050:09:09

She's a bit nervous today

0:09:090:09:11

because I told her what an important client you are to me.

0:09:110:09:13

She learns fast.

0:09:130:09:14

You just can't get a decent bagel in Karachi.

0:09:180:09:22

My son has them flown in sometimes.

0:09:220:09:25

Please, turn over. You have such beautiful skin, madam.

0:09:260:09:29

You know what I think? Imran spends money like water.

0:09:330:09:38

That girl must think she has married a maharajah's son. White trash.

0:09:400:09:45

-Please check, madam.

-Done?

0:09:450:09:48

Done?! Let me be the judge of that!

0:09:480:09:51

You made more work for me today! Some helper(!)

0:10:030:10:07

Not helper, Rosie Khala! Please! Assistant.

0:10:070:10:10

Better English.

0:10:120:10:13

Now you're teaching me English?! Every word you speak I taught you!

0:10:150:10:19

I could never damage your work, Rosie Khala.

0:10:200:10:22

I know how important extra money is for you.

0:10:220:10:25

I don't think you do, Rafina.

0:10:280:10:30

I want to work with you at Radiance. I want to go to the real saloon.

0:10:540:10:59

Radiance. And it's salon, not saloon, you crazy girl.

0:10:590:11:03

-Will you talk to your boss about me?

-When the time is right.

-That's now!

0:11:030:11:08

-They want me to get married.

-Rafina, you have a lot to learn.

0:11:080:11:12

Don't expect too much too soon. Let me get your mother's shampoo.

0:11:120:11:16

Oh, these Benazir posters!

0:11:200:11:21

A young girl has to be watched very carefully.

0:11:590:12:01

There'll be no hanky panky when Rosie's around.

0:12:010:12:04

Arif wants justice. Head in the clouds, feet in the party.

0:12:070:12:11

I put food on the table. It's not easy, you know.

0:12:110:12:13

-Please take me with you tomorrow. Please.

-No. You have a lot to learn.

0:12:160:12:20

You didn't get a tip today because you were laughing.

0:12:200:12:23

I tell my clients they're beautiful and the more I tell them,

0:12:230:12:26

the better the tip. I got 1,000 rupees today and you got nothing!

0:12:260:12:30

Think about that.

0:12:300:12:31

Good night.

0:12:320:12:34

Rafina?

0:12:530:12:54

'What a way to end the week, Karachi.

0:14:020:14:05

'A mixed marathon, that is women and men running together,

0:14:050:14:08

'has mullahs screaming for their blood.

0:14:080:14:10

'They say Pakistan was made in the name of Allah

0:14:100:14:12

'and a mixed marathon is un-Islamic.

0:14:120:14:15

'What do you think? Send in your thoughts...'

0:14:150:14:19

You can only work for two months.

0:17:370:17:39

Rafina! We go this way.

0:18:450:18:46

-Rafina, we go this way.

-Why not here?

0:19:470:19:49

-Good morning, Nawal.

-Hello, Rosie.

0:19:570:19:59

-I brought that girl with me.

-Oh, I see.

0:20:000:20:04

Do you have a diploma?

0:20:040:20:05

I've learned with Rosie Khala.

0:20:050:20:08

-I've been teaching her in my spare time.

-So no training or diploma?

0:20:080:20:12

But, of course, for Rosie's sake, we'll try you out for a week.

0:20:150:20:19

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:20:200:20:21

Rosie Khala, why can't I have the purple one?

0:20:280:20:30

If they keep you, you'll get the purple one.

0:20:300:20:34

CHATTER IN SALON

0:20:430:20:46

Girls, do you know what I'd really like to wear tonight?

0:21:010:21:05

One of those white wedding dresses with the long trains

0:21:050:21:08

and the flowers on my head. I would love that.

0:21:080:21:10

And I always thought I would get married in a white dress. Always.

0:21:100:21:14

Like the ones we used to wear when we were kids

0:21:140:21:17

and running around the room?

0:21:170:21:18

If you wanted that, you should have married one of those cute boys

0:21:180:21:21

from college as opposed to settling for a sweet little Muslim boy.

0:21:210:21:24

You are a beauty, a natural beauty.

0:21:250:21:28

-Rosie Khala, her hands are gorgeous, no?

-That's so sweet of you.

0:21:280:21:33

-Why don't you tell her what that fucked glow is all about, then?

-What?

0:21:330:21:38

What? You're not a virgin yourself?

0:21:400:21:44

Are you?!

0:21:440:21:46

Leave her alone, she's fine.

0:21:460:21:48

Well, you, missy, had better hope

0:21:480:21:50

your dear mummy-in-law doesn't find out what you've been up to.

0:21:500:21:54

(Fucked glow...)

0:21:550:21:56

-Can you make tea?

-Yes.

0:21:590:22:03

I mean, not the stuff you people drink. I mean, proper tea.

0:22:030:22:06

And can you serve it without spilling it on somebody's lap?

0:22:060:22:10

Of course.

0:22:100:22:12

-Shall I get her started?

-Please do.

0:22:140:22:16

Come on, girl.

0:22:190:22:20

(Thank you.)

0:22:280:22:29

Billboards are the truths. The art of our times.

0:22:320:22:37

They summarise the hopes,

0:22:370:22:39

dreams and aspirations of the people they are made for.

0:22:390:22:42

There are more girls interested in modelling every year.

0:22:420:22:45

Despite what some idiots say about Pakistanis being

0:22:450:22:48

a bunch of backward fundamentalists.

0:22:480:22:50

We are the women's revolution this country has been waiting for.

0:22:500:22:54

Our job is to help women realise their dreams

0:22:540:22:56

so the mullahs can't hold back

0:22:560:22:57

the sea change happening in this country.

0:22:570:23:00

'Where shall I...?' TAPE STOPS

0:25:020:25:05

Power cut. Don't worry,

0:25:080:25:09

soon power cuts for Princess Rafina will be a thing of the past.

0:25:090:25:14

Rafina!

0:25:190:25:21

SHE LAUGHS

0:25:260:25:28

Stop!

0:25:280:25:29

Hurry up! Hurry up!

0:25:420:25:45

We are running very late.

0:25:450:25:48

-Deepak?

-Yeah?

-We are running late and her phone is off.

0:26:060:26:09

Her phone is always off.

0:26:090:26:11

Girl. Come here. Come here.

0:26:140:26:17

Turn around.

0:26:190:26:21

Very nice. Can you try these on?

0:26:230:26:25

My model is not here and I need to do a fitting.

0:26:250:26:28

Come on, go, shoes. And come back in two minutes. Go.

0:26:280:26:32

-Are you insane?

-Relax.

0:26:320:26:34

I want my food for the models, I want water, that's a requirement.

0:27:050:27:09

Deepak, I am so sorry, darling. Can you ever forgive me?

0:27:090:27:12

You're 20 minutes late.

0:27:120:27:14

You know, I would have thrown you out, but you're still my girl.

0:27:140:27:18

No harm done, come on.

0:27:180:27:19

Get your first outfit, I'll get the alterations done by that time.

0:27:190:27:22

Here's your first outfit, where's the second one?

0:27:220:27:24

Oh, the second outfit. She is wearing the second outfit.

0:27:240:27:27

Sweetie, I'm so sorry. My model is here,

0:27:270:27:29

you have to take this outfit off and give it to her. Come on. Thank you.

0:27:290:27:33

-Gentlemen, is this all Radiance has to offer?

-Excuse me.

0:28:350:28:40

You obviously haven't seen her. She is my fun to work with model.

0:28:400:28:46

-Too visible.

-I know what you are looking for.

0:28:460:28:50

I know exactly what he's looking for.

0:28:500:28:52

She's adored by everyone.

0:28:530:28:55

She is not too off the mark,

0:28:550:28:57

but the amount of trouble her husband causes on shoots,

0:28:570:29:01

for my ad agency, she just isn't worth it.

0:29:010:29:03

-Excuse me.

-Personally, I don't think married women should model anyway.

0:29:050:29:11

I mean, our culture is so insecure about women,

0:29:110:29:13

they want to own them and possess them.

0:29:130:29:15

And now they also want to show them off to their friends.

0:29:150:29:18

Manhood versus economics.

0:29:180:29:21

Economics until six in the evening and then it's manhood all the way.

0:29:210:29:24

To get back, we understand that you are looking for

0:29:250:29:28

a very specific kind of girl.

0:29:280:29:30

Right now, most of your customers are women.

0:29:300:29:32

Black or with milk, sir?

0:29:320:29:34

With lots of milk and two sugars.

0:29:360:29:38

Anyway, women, and they are united by this one unique characteristic.

0:29:410:29:47

Let's call it enlightened innocence.

0:29:470:29:50

That's a fantastic phrase. I'm going to use that.

0:29:500:29:54

The face of the woman you are looking for

0:29:540:29:57

is a face that has seen a lot,

0:29:570:29:59

but hasn't been corrupted by what it has seen.

0:29:590:30:02

That's hard. Am I right?

0:30:020:30:03

-Do you have any like her?

-Yes, we have several portfolios.

0:30:090:30:12

Anjo. She's my easy to work with model.

0:30:190:30:23

-Why are you still here?

-Waiting to see if you need anything else.

0:30:280:30:32

We'll call you if we do. Thank you.

0:30:320:30:36

Farhad, you've found your girl.

0:30:470:30:49

She has country beauty, urban beauty, innocence. It was all there.

0:30:490:30:53

She was auditioning for you the whole time.

0:30:530:30:55

If you succeed in this photo shoot,

0:30:570:31:00

we'll give you some lessons in walking.

0:31:000:31:02

Give you practical experience

0:31:020:31:04

in your first runway show later this month.

0:31:040:31:06

And who knows, you might even come to Paris with us.

0:31:060:31:09

How much do I get for the photo shoot tomorrow?

0:31:090:31:12

How about we settle for 4,000 rupees?

0:31:170:31:19

It's less than you would normally get,

0:31:190:31:21

but we'll see how it goes and take it from there.

0:31:210:31:23

-How much does a model usually get?

-About 7,000.

0:31:230:31:26

I'd like 6,000, then.

0:31:290:31:31

And... I'd like a car to pick me up too.

0:31:330:31:36

Let's see how this goes, Rafina.

0:31:380:31:40

All right, if it goes well,

0:31:400:31:42

I'll get a car to pick me up and I guess I might need a phone too.

0:31:420:31:46

Anything to add to that, Jamal?

0:31:490:31:50

How about, congratulations, Rafina.

0:31:520:31:54

For lovely skin, use Oliva.

Think of it. She could be a hot commodity.

0:37:270:37:30

Rafina, how are you supposed to be a model?

0:38:490:38:52

Not a model the size of my fingernail.

0:38:520:38:55

I am not going to be just a model the size of your fingernail.

0:38:550:38:58

Then what are you going to be? A waxing woman?

0:38:580:39:02

Some day, I could be the giant face on the ichai billboards.

0:39:100:39:14

I'm going to be like the women in Paris, New York and London.

0:39:140:39:18

I'm going to have my own apartment, my own separate life.

Rosie Khala? What happened? I'll get you help.

0:52:560:53:00

You look so beautiful.

0:53:030:53:06

Rosie Khala, I'm going to get you help. All right?

0:53:120:53:16

No! Rosie Khala?

0:53:240:53:26

Rosie Khala!

0:53:260:53:28

The show can't happen.

0:53:410:53:43

-PJ:

-Look, Rafina, this is a big night for Radiance and for you.

0:53:440:53:48

This is your launch. You're the star of the show.

0:53:480:53:52

It cannot happen without you.

0:53:540:53:57

Rosie would understand best.

0:53:570:54:00

I promise I'll get you to the funeral on time.

0:54:000:54:03

Don't tell Jamal about Rosie.

0:54:140:54:16

This is a big deal for Radiance.

0:54:160:54:19

I don't want him troubled.

So how did you like the show?

0:58:020:58:03

I loved the show. Rafina was great.

0:58:030:58:06

If I could believe that she's serious about modelling,

0:58:060:58:09

and was willing to stick with us for a long haul,

0:58:090:58:12

I'd renew with Radiance in a second.

0:58:120:58:15

We can make that work.

0:58:160:58:17

PRAYERS CONTINUE

0:58:170:58:20

Rafina. Wait till you see the afterparty I planned in your honour.

0:58:390:58:43

-Where have you been? I've messaged you a zillion times.

-Why?

0:58:430:58:47

-I was busy.

-I can see that.

0:58:470:58:50

Rafina says she can't come to the afterparty. Tell her she must, PJ.

0:58:500:58:53

Oh, what's another hour or two, Rafina?

0:58:530:58:56

You know I would love to,

0:58:590:59:01

but I'm simply overwhelmed by this amazing day.

0:59:010:59:04

I think it would be too much.

0:59:040:59:06

I totally agree.

0:59:060:59:08

That's why you'll only stay ten minutes,

0:59:080:59:10

so I can show you what we did in your honour.

0:59:100:59:12

You need to spend a few minutes with Fahad.

0:59:120:59:15

First class or second class...

0:59:150:59:18

Look. There's Fahad.

0:59:180:59:20

-Jamal, hey, come here.

-Raz!

0:59:200:59:22

You have to meet Raz.

0:59:220:59:24

-Jamal, I should...

-He's one of the best fashion photographers.

0:59:240:59:27

-How are you, Raz?

-Good to see you, man.

-Rafina, meet Raz and Shaz.

0:59:270:59:31

Hopefully you'll get to work with them soon.

0:59:310:59:34

Don't go too far. I'm your ride.

0:59:360:59:38

You were fantastic today, congratulations.

1:00:301:00:34

This girl is marvellous.

1:00:361:00:39

I'm off, take care.

1:00:391:00:41

-Bye, ladies.

-Bye.

1:00:411:00:43

Now, where's the car?

1:01:021:01:05

Rafina.

1:02:561:02:58

Rafina. Can I drop you home?

1:02:581:03:01

I just found out about Rosie.

1:03:091:03:11

I'm so sorry.

1:03:131:03:15

I missed her funeral.

1:03:221:03:24

How could I?

1:03:311:03:32

You did it for Radiance.

1:03:351:03:37

You didn't mean to.

1:03:391:03:41

You tried to do both.

1:03:411:03:42

For what it's worth, thank you.

1:03:471:03:51

I know you loved her.

1:04:081:04:10

I used to hate everything about my part of the city.

1:04:251:04:27

But I don't hate it at all any more.

1:04:321:04:36

In fact, I like a lot of it.

1:04:361:04:38

Some parts I love.

1:04:441:04:46

What do you love?

1:04:481:04:50

The Gola ganda.

1:04:501:04:52

You know they don't use mineral water to make it, don't you?

1:04:561:04:59

I've always wondered why Gola ganda can be made from mineral water

1:05:041:05:09

and served in a bowl for 150 rupees.

1:05:091:05:11

You are very important to me, Rafina, you are special.

1:05:161:05:20

You won Fahad over.

1:05:281:05:30

I did?

1:05:331:05:34

..is you.

1:05:341:05:36

He just called me.

1:05:361:05:38

Would you stop the car, please?

1:05:561:05:58

We did it, Rosie Khala.

1:11:201:11:23

Well done, Rafina, it is a proper size now.

1:11:511:11:54

All the kids at school were excited about your face on the tea box.

1:12:211:12:25

You are smart, do what you want, but not living alone.

1:12:251:12:29

Welcome back after the break on this Karachi morning.

1:17:021:17:05

Guest Corner is on.

1:17:051:17:08

Today we have Rafina.

1:17:081:17:11

She's a model, and she is talk of the town.

1:17:111:17:14

So what does the future hold in store for Rafina?

1:17:141:17:18

What is behind "unveil your loving glow"?

1:17:181:17:21

The mullahs are saying I'm trying to instigate something.

1:17:211:17:24

I seriously don't know what they mean.

1:17:241:17:28

But your newest campaign is causing quite a stir.

1:17:281:17:30

The woman you see on the billboard is my Rosie.

1:17:301:17:33

They say she is unreal

1:17:331:17:36

and it is immoral,

1:17:361:17:39

but I am a simple person from Faisal Colony,

1:17:391:17:41

I do not think like them. I love her.

1:17:411:17:44

I love her face and I'm proud to show it.

1:17:441:17:47

Unveil your loving glow

1:17:471:17:50

means exactly what it says.

1:17:501:17:53

Show your love.

1:17:531:17:54

In Karachi, Rafina, who is living in poverty in with her mother and brother, gets a job at a huge beauty company through her Aunt Rosie. Quickly noticed by her superiors as a beauty, she is given work as a model and promises of having the world at her feet. It's her big chance, but the job incurs the disapproval of both her family and her more traditionally-minded fiance, as tension and distrust of the West begin to rise around them in the city.
