Update for Friday, May 20, 2011:
RR says that he doesn't want to be responsible for misery in Viswanathan's family. He felt there was a nyaayam in Viswanathan's wanting to get his daughter married to him, he was feeling guilty because he had fixed up Anu for RR, since she was dead, he wanted to make up for it by giving his daughter to RR. RR felt that this was the way to repay his nanri kadan to V, but his mother refused to accept this He thinks of V saying that this josiyam is old stuff, and Palli will commit suicide if she doesn't marry him, thinks of his mother saying that he should not marry again while Anu is still alive, is confused.
His mother comes in then, and asks what he is thinking about. He tells her that he has decided to marry Palli, he doesn't think Anu is alive (just two months of mourning, and he hasn't even seen her dead body) so he has decided to remarry. Paati says he has fallen for V's money, he says it is because Palli has threatened to commit suicide, so he could not oppose V at that point, it was only for the nanri kadan. Paati says don't hide behind this nanri kadan, he says that he will marry Palli with her asirvadham only, Paati says that is impossible and there will be no relationship between them henceforth.
RR then turns to his fount of wisdom - Sundu the great - for advice. Sundu tells him he cannot grieve and spend the rest of his life grieving for Anu, your mother wants you to do this (I really wanted to lash out at Sundu at this point), don't all widowers remarry, you are young, childless, blah, blah, this is not drogam, and Palli is your best choice because she will marry only you. He does say one thing - don't marry for nanri, viswaasam, if you like Palli, then marry. All mothers will insist that the son remarries if he is widowed (my grandmother didn't say that to my father, so my gm must be a bad person!), your mother wants you to remain unmarried just because of some josiyar. You have only two options - oppose your amma and marry Palli, or reject V and stay single forever.
RR says that he decided that instead of thinking about the dead Anu, he would marry Palli and make her happy, along with her family. Here I am a little confused - I think he goes ahead and gets married and goes home, finds the door locked, the neighbor gives him the key. He goes inside, finds a letter from mother, saying that now that V has become more important to him, she is leaving him and going away to some unseen place. She signs herself as his ithanai naaLaa ammaavaa irundha Gomathy ammaL.
Sundu says that after his mother also left, RR was very upset. He searched everywhere for his mother, didn't find her, Sundu consoled him, said why should you stay single for the rest of your life? Ganesh says that this proves that RR married Palli not out of love or any such kaNraavi, but out of a sense of duty. Didn't I always tell you that RR is a great man, and he would never do any drogam to anyone? Rukku says that doesn't prove that he had neirmai and nyayam, if so, he would have told Palli that he was married already. RR says he tried to do so, but V and his wife stopped him from doing so. Anu was dead, why tell Palli about this and make her life a mess, so RR also thought why say something that will only bring her misery (aaha, what great logic! I applaud your noble thoughts, RR and Abinaya Creations! Go ahead and give more newly widowed men ideas like this!)
