The wind is blowing Thulasi's hair in a crazy huzzle. The wind is blowing hard on them. They are enjoying an evening drink (Alcohol illa..!)Suddenly, Tamil starts laughing . Thulasi looks at him Thulasi, "Sirikathinga...sirikathinga..." and goes and beats him, who is laughing so much. Tamil, still laughing, "Oru baga olunga vekama ena comdey pannita. Epdi kuttima athu? Antha lady than handbaga steal pannirupangala? Ena ma?"Thulasi, "Elam mudinjithula. Ippo kuda avungala namba mudiyala."Tamil, "Nee yaraiyum nambatha. Nala vella Smiles anga on time vantha illa nee ena panirupomnu enala yosikakuda mudiyala. Antha lion ku sleeping shot kuduthanga illana. yapa."
Thulasi, "Atha lan ippo pesi ethuku?"Tamil, "Athu seri...hm..ippo ena pannalam kuttima?" Thulasi, "Neengalai sollunga..."Tamil, "It's been almost one week."Thulasi, "..Hm...kodi seikram we will reach the shore."Tamil, "Yes! Tomorrow morning..."
Thulasi, "Intha ship a marakavai mudiyathu la?" Tamil, "Epdi mudiyum? Nama 2013 New Year a kondadunathei inga thena." Both of them look into each other's eyes. Scene cuts and shifts to the same eye lock but zooming out shows our couple in a different attire, in a ball room inside the ship dancing slowly to the melodious tune of titanic. Tamil, "You look so beautiful!"Thulasi, "Hm? Thank you." Tamil looks at her surprised, " Athusaiyama iruku. Sanda poda mateinkura? Ippo than azhaga nu?" Thulasi smiles, "Sanda podura mood illa." still smiling. Tamil, "Ena dance ithu? Itha vida slow a music poda mudiyatha? Nama ooru kuthu patuka munadi ithu elam onumai illa..." Thulasi still smiles, "Apdiya? Appo vidunga. Dance ada venam..." and slowly loosens her grip and turns to go. Tamil, "Ai." and holds her and pulls her towards him and hugs her from behind, "Ena kuttima? Kovama?" holding her closer.
Suddenly the music stops and the spotlight falls on them. Both of them look surprised.
The DJ, " And so it is this is the lucky couple who is going to cut the New Year cake! Put your hands together. The countdown begins! TEN..."...the place echoes with people shouting out the countdown. TT are still surprised. Then they look up to see in the DJ floor a raffle draw bowl. Tamil, "Luck is really following us." as both of them walk towards the cake, a little nervous. The countdown goes...FIVE! FOUR!They have the knife in their hands. TWO...ONE...HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!The poppers go as Tamil and Thulasi together cut the cake. With everyone shouting out wishes of happy new year, Tamil holds Thulasi and whispers into her ears, "Happy New Year kuttima!" and feeds her the cake. Thulasi doesn't say anything. Tamil looks down to cut more cake when Thulasi kisses him in his cheek making it a surprise for him. Tamil looks at her in surprise and Thulasi looks down shy with everyone applauding around them. Both of them come back to present. Thulasi lies down in Tamil's shoulders as she sees the sun setting, "Romba nimathiya iruku. Romba thanks." Tamil quietly takes something from his pocket. It is a small gift box. Thulasi looks at it surprised. He himself opens it and takes out a beautiful ring out of it. Tamil, "This is a symbol of love and friendship. Orai oru ring than pannunanga. The original one. Athu enga irukunu yarukumai thriyathu. But this is an exact replica. Costly um kuda. Made of real gold, diamond and stones. Can you see the green stone, ithu matum than not real in the replic. But in the original one it is real and there is only one that is original. This is what I hid from you in Dubai that day." Thulasi admires the ring as Tamil puts it in her hand. Both of them look out into the horizon awaiting a wonderful year ahead...
