Second segment - Archu the Finanace Director. MMM wants 5,000 Rs as Rangan

to be paid back and spare parts for the next lot of cars to be bought " you take care
of the mechanic's works, I will deal with finance " Park maama agrees with DIL.
Finally with great reluctance Archu parts with 500 Rs - MMM to visit Raani - parting
shot " don't spend all the money. Judicious aa irunga " (iru iru Archu, un mOtha panathukkum vEttu irukku, Raani roobathile )

Freeze Tuesday 17/5/11
"Accuse Raani and send her out of the house " drama is successful - Raani
says that she will step in to the house again only with the money ( annan kaaran
kitte correct aa antha money irukku nnu epdi mma theriyum??) Raani leaves
angrily and correct aa Paasa malar MMM enters the house along with Aakash
who has no clue about what happened at home. Sarrojja stages a drama saying
that Raani has gone to Mangaadu temple. Paasa malar is disappointed ..but leaves
with out setting eyes on darling sis and declining offers of a virundhu. MMM
senses that all is not well.
As he reaches the threshold, he turns and addresses the family - " Raani called me
yesterday and wanted to see me. I have never heard that kind of distress in her voice.
My intuition tells me that she is troubled . I can't stand her suffering. if she has done
any thing wrong , I apologize on her behalf...blah blah " The family assures that all
Ramya is refusing food and is busy coloring any paper that comes her way
(athu sari, Oru 7 or 8 years irukkum pole irukku, paper le draw panname
kirukkarathu ??!!) Priya tells lady Shiva that she is going to meet the doctor who
conducted her delivery -"right from the time that fortune teller talked about my
baby being alive, I too feel that it is possible, so I am going to check it out " Lady
Shiva tries to dissuade daughter saying that the doctor is a very nice woman and
such questioning is not right but Priya stands her ground and leaves. Lady Shiva
calls the doctor and gets to know that she is busy with a C section. Hurriedly
follows Priya ..Manjal pisasu has no clue. A courier delivers a letter for Priya,
probably a job offer or an interview. Manjal pisasu leaves the cover on the table
and Ramya promptly colors the cover and throw it down - the cover takes cover
under a table
Archu checks with hubby and learns that he could not meet Raani. Wonders as
to why Raani will leave home when paasa malar has promised to wait. Bingo,
Rraani walks in , learns that her family lied to paasa malar, decides to tow the
line and says " I lied there and came to see u all" Archu wonders but Raani uses
her first class pass buthi - says that she came so that she can see them all...
Freeze Update for Wed, May 18, 2011:
welcomes Rani and asks her how things are going at her inlaws' place.
Rani says everything is fine, Archu wants to know if she is pregnant,
and Rani says No. Rani sees Archu's gold ring and Archu tells her how
they were bought for Dheena's marriage, and since the marriage was
cancelled, Poonga suggested that they wear the rings. Archu adds that
everyone exchanges rings for the engagement, they exchanged rings after
getting married and having a baby. Then Archu says she has some good
news for Rani, goes to the suitcase and takes out the bag with all the
cash (romba safe placele irukku!)
it to Rani and says this is the money he made in one week of hard
work. Rani thinks to herself, thank God my brother has the money, now I
can take this to my inlaws.
Selvam enters, sees Rani, tells her
that he thought she had gone to the temple, and she says she told her
inlaws that, but came here to see her brother. He insists that she
should stay for lunch with them when she tries to leave.
goes to the hospital, asks to see the doctor who attended on her during
her delivery, goes to the doctor's room, tells her how she managed to
accept the news that her baby was dead, but her mind kept telling her
that the baby was still alive. Now a josiyar has confirmed it for her,
so she wants to know if her baby is truly dead. The doctor denies it,
but she puts the doctor on the spot by asking her to swear on her
Unknown to Priya, Sivagami has also come to the
hospital, and is now standing outside, looking at the doctor talking to
Priya in her consulting room. She calls the doctor from a pay phone,
conveniently situated right outside the doctor's office, and asks the
doctor not to tell Priya that her baby is still alive. Priya however,
confronts the doctor and demands that she swear by her profession.
Luckily for the doctor, she is called away for an emergency, so she
leaves. She tells Sivagami about her escape and leaves. Sivagami also
leaves hurriedly. Priya leaves slowly, looking around, but when she
comes to the main reception area, she sees Sivagami hurriedly getting
into an auto and going away. She is confused by this, wondering why
Sivagami should be leaving from the hospital.
Selvam, Archu and
Rani having lunch together. Selvam tells Rani not to lie to her inlaws
but to tell them the truth when she wants to see her brother. Just when
Rani is about to broach the matter of the three lakhs, Archu tells Rani
to advise her brother not to waste his money. She tells Rani that
Selvam bought breakfast for the three of them for a thousand rupees, and
he wanted to give 5000 to Kuppan and Rangan, wanted to move into
another house, she told him to first repay Nandini part of her loan and
buy spares for Rs. 1 lakh. She explains how Nandini helped him out, and
poor Rani is forced to agree with her. There go your hopes of getting 3 lakhs from your brother, Rani!
Thodarum ...Thursday 19/5/11
1. Raani goes back with out asking for the money - after the lecture about
Finance Management from Archu. MMM repeatedly asks "all ok at your
end??" to Raani who answers in the affirmative .
2. Priya confronts Lady Shiva about visiting the hospital - and Lady Shiva
categorically denies and says that she went to Medavakkam to meet the josiyar.
Priya does not believe her and vows to find the truth. Manjal Pisasu does mental
calculations and infers that some thing is fishy. ( nalla theeni thaan unakku !!! Mind
wheels 1000 Km s speed le turn pannum !!)
3. MMM has 10 more cars - has one week's time to get them in shipshape.
Work is on at the shed - Aakash comes - well, the whole drama is known to MMM
- and Raani is missing - Jalan jalan search starts. MMM abandons his work and
goes with Aakash , uh huh. Intha jalan jalan searching kandraavi can happen only
in serials !!! Park maama is coming out of of a wine shop - with a cutting in hand -
sees Aakash and MMM - learns that Raani is missing . For once MMM is man
enough to accuse daddy darling "all because of you !!! Problem in Raani's life " Park
does not know WHICH of his acts created this particular problem ...
Update for Friday, May 20, 2011:
scolds Poonga for his irresponsible behavior which has led to Rani's
leaving her house. Poonga is confused, not knowing what he has done,
and Selvam reminds him about the time Akash had to borrow money to bail
him out of trouble, and how Rani was forced to leave the house by her
inlaws. Poonga drops the bottle of liquor he had been hiding behind his
back in shock, Selvam sees the bottle and knows what he has been up
to. They decide to continue looking for Rani, and Poonga goes with them
(all three big guys on one motorcycle - kaNN
koLLaa kaatchi! - and the poor motor cycle continued to move - it must
be a miracle!)
Rani is sitting in some temple and crying, leaning against one of the pillars. Bhagyam comes to the same temple (how does everyone land up in the same temple in a city which has temples in every corner?)
and does an archana for Vasu. She prays that he should return soon,
safe and sound, and then she too comes and leans against a pillar -
guess which one? No prizes for guessing right - on the other side of
the pillar where Rani is sitting and crying. They both sit, they both
cry, they wipe their tears, sit some more, cry some more, and this goes
on till Bhagyam gets up and one of her fruits falls off and rolls down.
Rani sees this, picks up the fruit and calls out, and then Bhagyam
turns and sees her. Bhagyam thinks she has come with someone from her
family, begs her for forgiveness, tells her about Vasu leaving her, says
that if Rani too doesn't forgive her and talk, she will die an
anaadhai, and so on, and finally the priest comes and tells them both to
leave since he has to lock up the gates. Bhagyam says she will drop
off Rani, but Rani says she is not going there and will go to their
house. Bhagyam is confused.
Once home, Rani explains everything and Bhagyam wants to go there and ask them a few questions which will pull their tongues (naakai pudungare madhirikku this was the best translation I could think up!)
Rani says she won't go back to that house without the money and Bhagyam
doesn't know where they could go for so much money. She feels bad that
she and Poonga have been the cause of the loss of Rs. 3 lakhs, but Rani
says that even more than the Rs. 2 lakhs, it is the one lakh that has
caused more trouble. Bhagyam is afraid that if Rani stays there, the
neighbors will ask if she has returned as a vaazhaa vetti, and just then
someone comes in (the doors are always open here, as always!) and says
Bhagyam, your son is waiting outside. Bhagyam runs outside, thinking it
Selvam, Poonga and Akash are standing outside. Bhagyam
invites them inside but Akash says they are looking for Rani and asks
if she has come there. Bhagyam says Yes, and Akash goes inside. Rani
runs to him for a tearful hug, cries her heart out, and Akash tells her
to go back home with him and he will make everything okay with his
family. She disagrees, saying they have treated her badly even though
she had brought the 50 sovereigns of gold, now she will not return
unless she has the cash. Akash tells her that her brother is waiting
outside for her and she runs outside to see Selvam. When she sees
Selvam, she falls at his feet, asking for forgiveness, and Selvam picks
her up and looks at her.
