Character Sketch


Eldest child in the family.  Extra ordinary good hearted soul, gave-up the education and took-up the family burdens on his shoulders at such a small age.  A secret is kept away from him that he is the son of his father's first wed.  Works as a mechanic.  Happily accepts all the hardships for his family, and never suspect his mum's (step mum) intentions, that she likes the money he brought home more than him.  He didn't think about a life for his own, even when a good hearted rich girl Nandhini loved him sincerely.  But when he saw archana, he fell for her,  head over heels.   With circumstantial pressure, he lied about his profession to marry her, though he try to tell the truth to archana, but because of a  plot, that attempt failed.   His lying about his profession dug a deep hole between husband and wife from the day one of their marriage.  He patiently bears all of archana's insults, and swallow his mum-in-low's hatred, because of the love he has on Archana.  Will he ever win a place in archana's heart? Will he be able to live a life of his dreams with the love of his life?



Sivagami amma & SRK's daughter, A quiet, kind and, soft spoken girl, gave-up her studies to take care of the family due to her mum's illness. It seems no one except mum realizes the sacrifice she made for her family.   She gets enormous hurt when refused by the grooms as she is not educated and silently bears all the insults and bullying of her sisters and sister-in-law.  But Never complained about anything, her only solace is her mum, she's not only affectionate but worships her mum, Archana's only dream was to marry a well educated person, and she believes that will silence the spiteful words from the family members, She was on the moon when engineer Selvam likes to marry her, but she crashed from the heights, when she came to know the truth on the day of their mariage,  her husband is not an engineer, but a mechanic.  More than that, he systematically lied to marry her.  When she forced to come and live at her husban's house, she's reluctant to hear any of his explanations, about his lying and, started to take a secret revenge on him, by denied his rights as a husband and shoot him with poisonous words quite often.  Will she ever forgive her husband? And is there any happiness waits for her in the future?


Selvams family:

Narayan (Periappa)

Poongavanam's elder brother, a very nice person in all aspects, much respected by his brother poonga's family.  a young widower, raised selvam like his own son so  has extra affection on selvam than rani and vasu.  Because of poonga's irresponsible behaviour as a father and husband, narayan was the father figure for poonga's kids, and a periyavar and solving problems in the family for bhagyam.  He kept a secret away from selvam along with poonga and bhayam.  Will he keep this secret for ever?



A Father of three children.  But most of the time behaves as a kid himself with his, irresponsible behaviour.  Often claims he got seventh sense, but most of the times, his actions shows, he has no sense at all.  A happy go lucky man, never realizes his responsibilities as a husband or a father, his addiction to alcohol overshadows his good qualities.  Has  high respect on his elder brother.  He loves his children and his daughter-in-law archana.  Even though at times, he realizes his wife's selfish intentions and selvam's sacrifices, he never put himself, into action to sort out things or ease off the burden of selvam, as pongavanm's feeling for the family members are momentary or in other words another till he faces his next biggest problem that is non other than, making arrangements for his next gulp of alcohol.  Will he ever realize the responsibility as a head of the family?



Wife of Poongavanam, has three children altogether, including a stepson.  The meaning of her name refers fortunate, but she is not that fortunate, as she married to a very irresponsible man whom had a baby son in hand.  She didn't get any financial or emotional support from her husband at any time.  Whether she is selfish and narrow minded in nature or her husband's irresponsible behaviour turned her a selfish person, is a debatable question.  Her goal in life is to show both of them a bright future. For that she can go to any unacceptable length.  To provide that she uses her stepson as a stepping stone, She doesn't ashamed at any time for her actions.  As she stopped Selvam's schooling and sent him to a garage as an assistant when he was 12yrs old or get all his income without a penny for himself.    When her Children Vasu and Rani come  with education her stepson, gone down with increased debts.  Bhagyam uses love and affection as a weapon to control selvam, she try to get profit in Selvam's marriage as well.  When Bhagyam suspecs archana become a threat for her control on her stepson, she sees archana as an obstacle, selvam's genuine affection on her and the family or his  willful sacrifices failed to evoke any guilt in her.  In her eyes, selvam is always a money growing tree.  Will she ever felt guilt for how she treated selvam? Will she feel as a real mum for selvam in her life??



Poongavanam and Bhagyam's son.  A degree holder, but never think about his brother's hardships for the family or realizes he should get a job and and share his brother's burdens.  Quite often lies and get money from his brother selvam and doesn't have the guilt for that even a bit.  He has both of his parent's personalities, irresponsible as his father, selfish as his mother.  More of a playboy.  Cheated a number of girls and selvam was beaten up by one girl's dad and relatives in the mistaken identity.  When he met revathy, as usual he wants to cheat her, but by the time he too fall in love with her.  When the love matter came to light, revathy's dad beat him up and he ended up in the hospital in serious condition , because of  the persuasion of the family he told he will forget revathy and move on with his life.  Now he wanted to get a government job which is his dream.  Is he really changed and forget revathy? Will he get his dream job?



Poongavanam bhagyam's youngest child, a pet for elder brother selvam, very responsible girl, studying at the college.  She is the one who shows real affection and concern in her brother selvam at their household.  Sincerely wants him to be happy with his wife, and does whatever she can for that within her limits.  Will she be able to sort things between selvam and archana?

A mum of four kids, and blessed with a good husband, she has a special affection on the second child archana, as she willingly accept the duty to run the family at such a young age when sivagami amma fell ill.  Sivagami amma had an ambition in her mind about archana's marriage, that was, to get marry  archana to a well educated groom,  Because sivagami amma wanted to show her gratidude for archana because of the sacrifice she made as dropped her studies for take care of the family, She's the one who chooses the groom, an good looking engineer for achana, but when she  came to know, the groom she has choosen for her daughter and now became her daughter's husband was a mechanic, she couldn't accept that deceit.  She was completely lost and couldn't recover from the heart break.  She hated her son-in-law and his family the most, Even though she knows her-son-inlaw selvam has so many good qualities,  she's reluctant to accept that, and doesn't want to realize her hatred towards her son-in-law affects her beloved daughter's life dramatically.  Will she ever accept selvam as her son-in-law or will she realize the mistakes she made driven by emotions hurts her daughter, whom she loves most in the world?

 Archana is the eldest daughter in a middle class family. She has two sisters and a married brother with a kid. Her sis in law Jeyanthy is an evil minded person cause she got married to Vinod without the families knowledge and they found it hard to accept her as the DIL. Jeyanthy has a brother who spends most of his life time in prison as he is a crook. Jeyanthy and her mom wish to get Archana as his wife and this man from prison will give them criminal ideas.

 Selvam has a car mechanic and has his own workshop. He is a well know mechanic in that area, everyone trust him very much. He has a sister and brother Vasu and an useless father who steels money from home to get drunk. Vasu is a lay fellow who is a graduate but will not go for any ordinary job as he is waiting for a government job. So the only bread winner in the family is Selvam. He loves his mom and all the family members so very much.

Selvam once happens to see a girl in the temple...( Archana) and thought she is a pretty girl. Mean time Selvam's mom ( who is very selfish person...who always wants more and more money from Selvam) somehow agrees to look for a girl for Selvam. Another important character is Selvam's dad's elder brother who actually brought up Selvam...he is a nice man and well-wisher of Selvam and his family.

When this proposal reaches Jeyanthi's ears...she consults with her mom and they plan that...if Archana can not be made as a daughter in law to their family....then they have to ruin Archana's life. they are aware that Sivagami always dreams of getting a rich and educated son in law. They also know that Selvam is uneducated and he has only completed 10th standard. So Jeyanthi will come Selvam's house and request selvam's mom to tell that Selvam is mechanical she is only trying to help Archana to get a good life...this one lie will not hurt etc But Selvam will refuse to this idea.....somehow...his mom force him and they will go to Archana's house to see the bride as a formal ceremony.

When they were in Archana's house Selvam tries to tell the truth but his mom will stop him. Everyone agrees and a date is fixed for the wedding. Selvam is so restless and he wanted to tell the truth at least to Archana.....he argues with his mom and tells that he is going to write a letter to Archana and only if she agrees.....he will marry.....and he goes to archana's house with that letter.....and somehow that letter reaches Jayanthi's hands even before Archana read it.....she quickly hides it.....

And she tells Archana some other different story and she tells that Selvam would call her and ask for her "YES' Archana should tell yes......Selvam calls and asks Archana," now you know what do you say....are you still willing to marry me?" Archana says a big "YES" and Selvam feels relieved. Just before wedding Selvam's asks for 10 more Sovering gold and Vinod struggled and makes that money and gets gold for Archana....On wedding day....this Sindhamani wanted to stop that she simply says in front of everyone about Selvam's workshop.....and she also tells that Selvam is just a mechanic....That is the end of Selvam-Archan's marriage. ,...Sivagami insults Selvam as much as possible ...and Selvam was really hurt.... Archana goes with her mother.

FROM THIS point onwards......there are so many occasions ...where Sivagami will start insult Selvam and Archana also will support her mom. The arguments and fights between Selvam's mom and Sivagami become bigger and bigger. Sivagami agrees to send her daughter to live with Selvam, there both Archana and Selvam pretend to live like husband-wife in front the family but inside their room, both are strangers to each other. Sindhamani has influence on Bagyam and gives her bad ideas just to destroy Archanas life. She comes to know the hidden secret about Selvam, he is actually Poongas first wifes son and step son of Bagyam, slowly she poison Bagyams mind against Archana and her family. She gives a idea of buying a land and tell Bagayam to ask Archans jewellery. Archana and her family is against it but after Naraynan convince them its for the best of the family and Archana-Selvams future too, they agrees. Everything goes okay until they find out the land seller is a fraud and have cheated was pre- planned by Sindhamani actually as her revenge on Archans family. Sivagami is furious and demand back the jewellery, heat arguments between both families strikes.

Things get bad between Archana and her mother in law, on a fight Bagyam kicks Archana out of the house, a very hurt Archana goes to Selvams mechanic shop only to hear her husband talking on the phone about taking mothers side instead of the wife'she misunderstand the situation thinking Selvam was referring to their situation when he actually was advising his friend. She returns back to her mothers house, there she comes to learn her family have seen a marriage alliance for Kavya and hide the truth from her family as she doesn't want to be a burden for them anymore so she run away from her somewhere...and happens to be caught by a brothel house madam.....Selvam and his friend Siva hear about Archana missing from the house......and somehow they trace the path of Archana and reaches this brothel place and fortunately that lady agrees to leave Archana with Selvam. And Selvam brings Archana back and her mother refuse to let her daughter go with Selvam before he have paid back the money for the jewellery. Selvam who cant bear the fight, burst out he will take the reasonability of paying back the money to Sivagami, Archana goes back with Selvam and now things changes as she start to fall in love with her husband after seeing his struggles to bring her back and he also make her promise not to mention to anyone about the brother place. Selvam is unaware of Archanas change of heart. Another problem strikes when Sindhamani comes to know the truth about Archana been caught in a brothel place, she tell the truth to Bagyam and another fight breaks out. Strong arguments is been exchanged between the mothers and at one point..Selvam cross the limit and slap Archanas mother'Archana again lands up on her mothers house..her sisters realize Archana's love for Selvam. Kavya makes her mum realize her fault and beg her mum to reunite Archana with her husband, this lady being stubborn refuse to believe as she thinks she knows her daughters feelings more than anyone else and things doesn't get better either by Archana hiding her feelings and hope her mother will understand one day. A turning point comes when Sivagami agrees to send her daughter back if Selvam breaks his ties with his family, for his sake, his family agrees without his knowledge but on the house warming day, truth comes out and he refuse to break his relation with them for his own happiness.

Meantime...Vasu( selvam's brother) falls in love with Revathi a rich man's daughter and they both ran away from their town....and after so much troubles they get married and come back to their town and starts living in Selvam's house.

When Vasu and Revathy were missing....the father of Revathy who is a very influence person get Selvam under police custody and police beat him up like an animal. Archana comes to know about this...and she runs to the station and sees him in such a horrible condition and that was a turning point in Archana's mind.....she will console Selvam and comes home. Sivagami comes to know what she went to see Selvam and she starts jumping from the ground to the sky as usual......she even curses Selvam to die.

Archana bursts out with anger....she for the first time talks," ma....for you ...only your ego is important than my own husband's are not worried of your own daughter becoming a widow.......listen to me now...I will go to my husband and will live as his wife" and leaves the house.

Selvam is out of jail and Archana comes home to live with Selvam. This Selvam so much strength. Meantime Selvam's mom becomes mad as she wanted to sell the house or something.....and Selvam says a big "NO" and here comes the secret from her mouth that Selvam is her own son...she only gave birth to Vasu and his sister he is the son of the first wife of her husband......and she really insults him and Vasu also screams at him and even hit him bad.

Seeing all this Archana will shout at all of them and stop them and then Selvam decides to live in the same house but as a separate family. From here starts their journey as husband and wife and how they face the problems together'.Embarrassed
