Roja, what have you gotten me into? My heart sinks at the thought of the next two years!
Update for Tuesday, April 27, 2010 - episode 2:
Paasa mazhai under way - Vasanthi is sobbing and thanking her sisters for letting her get the sari. Neighbor says she has seen sisters fighting over a sari, she is seeing sisters vittu kuduthufying for each other here. They go and get ready.
Everyone arrives at the mandapam. Vasanthi seems to be a loosu - gets all excited over a rose on the sign, fusses when Tamizh asks mom to give the gift because she wants to be in the photo and video. They all go together to give the gift, Vasanthi goes and stands beside the bride. They get ready to leave, Vasanthi wants to eat, someone insists that they should all eat, Vasanthi is the most excited by this, they all go to eat. Tamizh meets some long-lost friend there, stops to talk, tells Kavitha to take the others in, and stands and talks. Vasanthi gets excited over finding five seats together, fusses over finding only one poriyal, keeps asking for more while Kavitha tries to hush her. One lady sees her acting silly like this, looks disapproving, sees someone who is looking for a seat, and takes that person to the extra seat beside Vasanthi, and V says that it is reserved for her sister. Lady 2 goes away, Lady 1 goes to the sambandhi amma, and asks her who that kootam is. Sambandhi amma says it is a family known to them, actually related, and Lady 1 tells her about Vasanthi getting all excited at the sight of food, and it looks like they came there just to eat. Tamizh is standing there and she hears the whole conversation. She gets upset and goes and tells Vasanthi to get up. Mom protests, Vasanthi wants to take the laddu, but Tamizh drags her away.
Tamizh goes to the sambandhi amma and Lady 1 and tells Lady 1 that they are not "sOthukku alaiyaravanga,", oru timele they also lived well and fed 100 people daily, they came there only because sambandhi amma insisted that they should all come, their gift is worth more than the food. Mom says that she brought her daughters not to eat, but hoping to find a good match for them there. By this time, the whole mandapam is watching them, and Tamizh turns around to explain this to them, and asks them to continue eating (what? and miss all this wonderful drama?)
They all go home in an auto and dad welcomes them. (How did they all fit in there? I remember having a hard time with just my cousin and my niece, how did five women fit in there?) Mom tells Tamizh to cut the onions for uppuma, he asks them why they are eating uppuma after kalyaana saappaadu, Vasanthi complains that Tamizh didn't let them eat. He wants to know if they said something kurachal about their gouravam, Kavitha says that they have no gouravam to begin with, how can it be lessened? He gets angry and says that it is all mom's fault for taking all of them to the marriage, mom and dad trade insults over who is responsible, dad swears that he will make her proud of him again and goes away. Tamizh goes to talk to him, sending Kavitha to help mom and Swati to console Vasanthi. He tells Tamizh to console mom, who may end up not eating out of anger over dad.
In the kitchen, Kavitha is cutting onions, (very delicately!), and mom tells her to give the uppuma to dad, because she is afraid he won't eat because she shouted at him, Tamizh hears this, smiles to see mom and dad caring for each other so much.
Dad is fuming over this loss of gouravam and blames Kandasamy for all this, and curses him saying, Avan naasama poiduvaan. Then they show someone saying that Kandasamy Annaachi nalla irukkanam, and guess who this Annaachi is? None other than RK of Anandam fame.
Sorry about Lady 1, Lady 2 etc. I didn't catch their names.

Introduction of Kandasamy and family - the same Kandasamy
who gets the curse from Annamalai " I lost every thing because
of him, avan naasamaa pOiduvaan " (habba, intha dialog writers
kku ellam negative words illatha dictionary vaangi kudukkanum !!)
Just as A.Malai curses K.Samy, a couple do just the opposite
"neengalum unga kudumbamum nalla irukkanum" Well, the reason??? K.Samy gives some money to them for their daughter's wedding. The couple leave after "intha help ai naanga marakkave mattOm" and Mrs.K.Samy ( Sulakshana of yen soga kathai yai kelu thai kkulame - awwwww, Roja kku Malargal ninaippu varrathe ..Sammyyy, Daaasaaaaaa, enge pOittinga??) looks sad. Reason??? She has 3 sons and none of them are married.
Roja kathai solla poraa - K.Samy kku oru younger bro. Purana kaalathu Lakshman - annan kizhicha kOttai thaanda mattar. The mother looks at both her sons and feels proud. Brother kku oru daughter + 2 padikkaraa. She goes to the temple and comes with prasadam - Roja gets to know the family Muthukumar, Saravanan and Karthik . Moonum moonu ragam. Muthukumar has a grocery shop. Saravanan has a white collar job and so has his nose up in the air. No 3 Karthik oru sidu moonji - karla kattai, untidy room nnu jool vittundu irukku. K.samy's father deserted his wife and sons -
engiyO Odi pOittaram , so oru new character might knock at our doors ... any time sooner or later !!!
Premalatha - athai ponnu comes. To cut a long story short, Muthukumar jollu vittufies at Prema but she has her eyes on Karthik. Karthik chases her from his room...from his life...as if she is a rabid dog !!! Paatti teaches Kamasutra lessons to grand daughter " velile thaan vallu vallu nnu vizharaan, he hides his love for you ..deep inside" Pethi is skeptical. Just then, a few men come and hand over
a bike to K.Samy "you buy our products and this year you have bought for the maximum amount..so, this is our gift.." The three boys eye the bike with greed written large in their eyes..what follows
next is absolutely juvenile - the three overgrown men do a "kudumi pidi" sandai for the bike. Finally, the 3rd son brings a match box "enakku illatha bike vera yarukkum illai da" - burns the bike ...the elders are distraught but the sons could not care less. They all leave. The rest , including the + two girl are shocked. K cries, his mom lends eye support, the girls are shocked and Mrs.K has a wise crack ready "oru kalyanam ( one??? all the 3 are dhadi maadus !!) pannitta sariya pOidum" Now K.Samy is livid "kalyanamaa??? Oru kalyanam
nammai paduthinathu pOraatha??? Look at my brother and his daughter - wife less mummy less !!!!" Visions of some one burning "ayyooo ammma ammma" ... Mother cries.....
