Update for Mar 21 - 25, 2011:
Paati doesn't speak when Palli answers the phone. She turns red, yellow, orange, and then puts the phone down and gets Balu to answer the call. Palli wants to know who answered the phone, Balu says he doesn't know. Palli goes over the same story about the lady she met whose mind was poisoned by Gayathri, according to her. She whines as always, why does nobody understand my good manasu? The answer is, we are all looking for it, and it is as elusive as a needle in a haystack.
RR and Karthi in his office, Sundu wants some checks signed. Karthi gives Sundu Shree's picture and asks him to look out for her. They are all trying to figure out the mystery behind her disappearance.
Jennifer in the ashram where Shree is staying, she hands over a check from RR to the lady in charge, on her way out, she passes Shree. She has left her phone in the ashram, so Shree goes to return it to her and they exchange names. RR calls Jennifer in the car (and it is dark outside his car, but bright daylight outside Jennifer's car, maybe he flew to the US to make the call? Or the director didn't notice this point?)
Paati and Balu – he doesn't want to go to Mannargudi, Paati claims to know why, she thinks he doesn't want her living with them (I agree in a way, things are expensive these days and he doesn't seem to have any job or source of income, how will he manage?) and starts lamenting that there is no one to do koLLi for her – does Monday have to start like this?
Mar 22: Paati continues her oppari, Balu sits at her feet and cries, asking for forgiveness, now he says she has given him more love than any mother would give (what happened to his own mother?), and they can all leave for Mannargudi in two days. Paati goes to bed, and he calls Sundu, who is just going to a restaurant for dinner (why did he never marry?) and decides to go and meet him at that restaurant. Open air restaurant, near Adayar signal – which one is this? Does anyone know? Is it good? I can try it next time I visit Madras.
Shree in the ashram, she writes two letters, one to her parents and one to Karthi. The Manager comes there and she takes the letters for mailing, and Shree says her heart is light now that she has put down everything on paper.
Balu and Sundu at the restaurant, Sundu orders two rava dosas and two chapattis – how can anyone eat rava dosas and chapattis together, esp at that late hour? Heartburn varaadha? Maybe adhukku appuram walking povaangaLo? Balu tells Sundu about Paati's getting angry when he tried to talk her out of going to Mannargudi with them, and Balu says she gets angry because she has a suddhamaana manasu, where there is guNam, there will be anger also. Now I get it – this is why Palli is so short tempered, she is full of guNam – the only difference is, she has bad guNams (idhukku tamil-le enna word?_I bet this is what Sundu is leading up to. Balu tells Sundu that he doesn't want to deprive RR of his birthright – to do the koLLi for his mother; Sundu says that RR would be crushed to hear this, and agrees to come up with some plan so Paati will remain in Madras.
Wed , Mar 23: Nothing much today.
Prem's mother paces up and down, waiting for dad to be released. Prem comes and says he hasn't been released, she nondhufies her vidhi that her own son should get her husband jailed, he tries to explain that the police fear Shree's life may be in danger if he is released since he was the person who did the kidnapping in the first place. She gets angry with Prem for taking this matter to the police – looks like Visa remains Visa, even if the serial is a different one.
Paati is making arrangements to move to Mannargudi. Balu tries to bring up the topic of RR's agony (what agony?) but she will not listen to any mention of his name. She goes to her room and takes out a file which she wants to hand over to Anu regarding the land transfer. Balu follows her and tries to open the topic once again, but she will not listen.
Sundu tells RR about Paati wanting to go to Mannargudi and he is (supposedly) shocked. He also tells RR that Paati has told Balu to do the final rites for her instead of RR. RR in shock.
Thurs: RR continues to be in shock over Paati's words. He and Sundu finally agree that only Anu can stop Paati from leaving. Sundu informs Balu about this.
RR goes to Anu's house late at night, and goes to the bedroom and starts weeping. Anu asks him what happened, he tells her about Paati's decision to go to Mannargudi and she is shocked. He also tells her about Paati denying him the right to do the final rites, and Anu is angry that she has not understood her wonderful husband. She says she will ensure that Paati doesn't move.
Fri: Karthi is moping in his room, holding Shree's picture in his hand. His paati takes milk for him, but Palli intercepts and takes it, after refusing to listen to her mother's advice about not getting angry with Karthi (if my children saw this, they will say I qualify for the Mother Teresa award in comparison with this Palli). She insists that Karthi drink the milk saying a mother knows her child's hunger (she has forgotten that she was totally unaware that he hadn't eaten all day and she learned it just now from her mother!) and then says that even if he doesn't fulfill her dreams, at least he can give up something that she is opposed to. He says that he is feeling guilty over Shree's suffering. Finally, she asks him to choose between his love and his mother. (With a mother like her, a sensible guy should choose his love!) Luckily, Karthi asks her the same question – you say you can feel my hunger, but you can't understand my mind? He says any sensible person would say both his love and his mother are equally important, why can't you do this much for your son?
Shree's letters are delivered to her parents' house and to Karthi's house. In Karthi's house, the letter is opened by Palli (and he is supposedly a grown son, standing there and allowing his mother to open his letters right in front of him! Shree is better off, not marrying this amma gondu!) She reads the letter aloud, wherein Shree has said that she doesn't want to marry him against his mother's wishes, so he should listen to his mother and marry the girl of her choice. Palli leaves him to think about it, and he takes the letter and sits and mopes again.
At Shree's parents' house, Gayathri reads the letter, along with a gallon of glycerin and two buckets of tears. Shree has said that she is in a peaceful place and will return after some time, when she is calmer at heart. She has even forgiven Sivaraman for his act, and says this is like a vanavasam for her, and she is reflecting on her life at this time. Gayathri dissolves into a million sobs.
Palli comes to Shree's house, rings the bell and asks for Gayathri. Shreenath and Gayathri come to the door, Gayathri and Shrinivasan ask her in, she starts her old line about how she will never step into the house of a person she doesn't like – she is the original witch of the West, all she lacks is a broomstick and a pointed hat! I can't stand her arrogance, and am waiting to see her when she finds out that she is nothing but a second wife, and Shreenidhi is the girl whom she lost at the bus stop and she alone is the cause for Meenakshi's suffering. At least, Shree's brother Shreenath is not afraid of her and asks her why she came if that was the case, and she says she came to warn them not to try and get Shree married to her son. In any case, this is an unemployed guy, who really wants to marry a guy without a job, and an amma gondu at that?
