Such speed! It's all my weightlessness, isn't it?
If only you tried better at school, could've become a doctor Well, education can make you a doctor but if you haven't been educated you can start a medical college you can become a 'giver of education'

Viji: By the way, what's with you also wanting to go abroad? Gandhi: Debts are stacking up here All income is going into repayments. Something's gotta be done You did accounting, right?
Viji: No jobs there for accountants, man Pandi: As if you went with some Collector's degree I went on a tourist visa and was keeping random jobs Dude, what's this?
Viji: That's to block eyes from sunlight. During flights. Pandi: You could just close your eyes for that Gandhi: What was that about tourist visa and random jobs? Viji:That won't suit you, man. Too difficult Can't be worse than drowning in debts and repayments. Go on.
Hmm. Here's my guy's number. A travel agent from Madras. He was my help.
So planning on going abroad?
I am asking you, Gandhi! Pandi! You too? Oh God...
Viji said no degree is needed to go abroad. So he wants to tag along Look what he's saying! Gonna do this abroad thing and only then return my jewels What's all this? Viji's given me ideas. This should work well. For debts.
And when back?
1 to 1.5 yrs Look, you told him 4 months ago. About repaying him. He's here waiting, and now you are going for 1.5 yrs 1 to 1.5 yrs Look, you told him 4 months ago. About repaying him.

Put some girl's name in the spouse column Sir, I am single I know, Gandhi!
British Council rejects visa for almost all bachelors They feel having a family indicates you will return home SIr, don't the white people know that we are more eager to leave home once we get married?
Just fill a name Sir, isn't cheating a crime?
Gandhi, I am not asking you to con a girl into marrying you! Just a name for the sake of it!
Oh ok, write P. Tamannah (popular actress)
P? Yeah, P for Pandi. Mrs. Tamannah Pandi You may write G Anushka (popular actress)
Don't write names of your houseowner's wife or daughter If police comes to verify, the whole family including you will be in a soup

There's a monthly stipend of 400 pounds how much's that? around 40000 rupees so their government pays you 40000 to sit jobless on a couch!?! yup! Gandhi! They are so benevolent. Why would they deport us then? listen not just this. you'll get a few credit cards. if you open a bank account, they'll even give you loan spend 6 years scheming with these options and you'll return home with something like 40-50 lakhs So if they are being so nice, why should we cheat them?
Dude, how are we cheating them?
All they have now is heard earned you think? All stolen when they colonized us we are just going to take half our share. Looks fair to me Come Kumar uncle, let's take a selfie no no, its ok. Let me take a photo for you yes, that's the camera. Sir..your glasses ...

-Nesan! That broker just dumped this unlucky house on us! you knew??
what? he's trying to say that every house here will have a suicide backstory, it doesn't matter there's the bottle scraper boys! why aren't you sleeping indoors? how can we? if eventuality stares at us from the ceiling what? didn't hear he's saying its hot indoors, so some fresh air here what's that on your eyes? its to protect eyes from light just close your eyes, why do you need all this? we also know. we'll do as we want Gandhi, your wife's not here yet? she spat at him when she got called to live here she's pregnant. 3 months. doc's advised to avoid traveling by bus
poor fellow, only able to speak in sleep... idiot! he's been playing dumb to trick us what now
Nesan...sing a song
Nesan.. I'll smack your face with a brick. Last night we saw... your talking and singing
Sorry guys. I didn't play dumb to cheat you Its to find my family Why I am Sri Lankan. My wife, daughter and I escaped from there. came here via boat I got separated from them the day we landed. Still searching, I haven't found them Didn't you try printing Missing posters? Or file a report with the police?
We ourselves are refugees... posters and complaints..we can't ok.. but why lie to us?
If I speak like this in my dialect, you'd have found out I am a sri lankan if the police catches me, it'd have been refugee camp for me as if we both here are in a castle basically, if you speak in Tamil in Tamil Nadu, it is a problem.
that is why ... Gandhi & I are going to London you go to the bathroom
Passport's looking good. Do well in the visa interview only thing.. this guy's look doesn't fit someone going to London Kumar Sir! This is not a date where someone's waiting to see me I am going to make a living there agreed. But from here they must first let you go. why wont they?\
Come fast Hey, ssh! they caught him sleeptalking. now he doesn't play dumb Sir, he was abusing you in sleep I've put 852,000 in your account. Don't forget. put 2,035,000 rupees in mine that's too much as if it is your money. just put This is not real money in a real account Just making fake bank passbooks for the VISA purpose just need the manager's signature. just sign here as per this signature
The last 'i' is not dotted!
Original signatures generally have small variations Why?
Even when we sign, it is never without tiny changes else they will find out it is fake!
Boss! This skill of yours shouldn't end with you You should have kids and teach it to them to keep this service alive Sure, worth thinking. Can you still? :P DUring the visa interview, only answer what is asked your answers should spark courage and self confidence yeah yeah You have a lot of concerns...job... stress... stay relaxe..
Nesan...don't worry. I'll tell them I am going for a tour No no! Don't say anything crooked like this. Answer clearly and concisely for every question

I'm afraid I must deny you a visa
Mr. Gandhi is again thrown off the train
Hey, how did it go!?!
Rejected Rejected? Why??
I told as you asked me to, so they rejected In that case, you surely would have got the visa. what happened?
The idiot asked me if I have seen the Tajmahal or Thanjai periya kovil what did you say? I haven't seen yet, so said so then asked about Valluvar Kottam. I said I am going this evening. Rejected
why? Chuck it, we''l talk in the evening what happened to Pandi? who knows
How did it go??
My heart's racing why, what did they say? they said I can go to London W.H.A.T?? Visa approved!
They selected you? yeah, man!
Did they ask about Taj Mahal? Yeah What did you say? I said I've seen What!? This is your first time to Madras itself. When did you see Tajmahal?
You and I know it. That white guy doesn't.
What if I told I haven't seen, and he rejected me asking me to first finish local sites? So I said so!
He said he hasn't seen, right?
Why did you lie!?! Huh!?
You lied to the creditors, I have only lied to the white guys!
Stop it! Stop hitting him unnecessarily Gandhi... you told so many lies in there but you got rejected because of that one truth you said Nesan! Is this fair? Winners should hit the losers, but this guy!
You lier! Mind it, you are grabbing a London citizen!Enquiry against you...
May be they rejected him for his name Hey.. Gandhi was always safe as long as white people were around.
Gandhi! Buy me a tea!
They were able to see that spark within you, Pandi!
Stop it, sir. He is already seething from hurt.
And you are adding me as salt to his injury
Who is it? Sister...
Why hesitating then Hello, sis!
Where's Gandhi? He was hesit...

Remember I told you there was to be an interview uh... Pandi got selected.. he will leave in 6 months what!? that doofus got through, while YOU failed???? chuck it, sis! I have told my husband you have already left to London!
How could you! I told you I'll call you after my interview, right?
Stop shouting at me!
He is fighting with me daily since the day you left. alright, for 6 months, don't come anywhere near here change your number and come home whenever you have amassed the cash for repayment bye such temper much waste The officer selected me because he liked my nature .. my sneeze He is just upset with all that...here he comes that tea's gone for sure... see...

Sigh If he gets caught by the cops in London won't they whack him up? that sounds like our cops here. London cops aren't like that No, but lets say if Nesan gets caught for Sri Lankan Tamil Won't he have to rat on Pandi?
I'm just wanting to know!
Don't worry. You are all safe, no pointing fingers from me
Sir! What's up Gandhi?

True man, that I tried to fraud and go to London. But I wouldn't cheat in a job there
Once I land in London... you asked me to flush my visa, my passport, and my documents down the drain...
Why, Sir? to destroy evidence of your whereabouts

If they have to believe you are a refugee, you shouldnt be having Indian passport
There is nothing to worry! ok, sir
Please come. Hello, sir!
In these 2 years, how many times have I asked you for the accounts?

See, for a fresh Passport application you can leave the spouse column empty or put any name But when it comes to removing a name from a passport the rules are limitless how about if I apply for a new passport under lost passport? even so then, they will ask for the same old records to prepare a new passport again and that would lead to the same girl's name, again Alright, how about we start with a clean slate!? Fresh application. 'Bachelor'
Well, any details would do. But your face...
Your biometrics, eye color and all that data is in their database Just go and come clean to your master!?
Mr. Nesan... I am trying to do all this to save my face in front of that big hearted master Won't he worry that you are not trustworthy anymore since you casually lied about a wife for a job?
Nesan! It sounds like a cow slurping! Can you not!?
Gandhi.. There's a guy in the passport office I know
Yes, what do you want?
Sir, I need to remove my wife's name from the passport Kaarmeghakuzhali...
Have you removed your wife? -Sir? Divorce...?
Divorce?? Sir, I am single Single?? How come you have a wife's name in the passport?
According to IPC 1967 Indian Passport Act ....
This is a huge crime!
Sir! I didn't try to do any fraud We were trying to go to London on a tourist visa. They asked me to put a random name for wife section, so I did Didn't Kumar sir tell you this Nope, he didn't tell me all this If I remove your wife's name form here, they will remove me from this office There, you see that guy...
Who's that, sir? newly joined regional Passport Officer If you had told him what you just told me..you're dead!
Dead?? eaten alive!
Sir.. any other ways?
If you go by the government procedures, no.
You guys go outside. Find this chap Hariharasudhan Tell him I sent you. He'll show you another procedure What would Pandi be doing? Haha, he will be teaching a white girl English
Why, you worried for him?
He will swallow London. Last person to be worried about
Hello...?...Cheap fellow, giving missed call!
Gandhi ... Hariharasudhan? ... I was that missed call Hello sir Right, so you want your father's name removed from the passport?
Not my fathers... my wife's ...
Remove wife's name? planning for next marriage?
No. Made a mistake putting a girls name while applying for tourist visa. Now want it removed. Didn't he tell you?
He didn't say anything. Such crooked cases he will shove at me This not like the normal ones that can be dealt with an affidavit I know a senior lawyer. Here's his number. Go meet him Lawyer? Why? This needs a divorce!
I'm gonna go check upstairs
[Judge] She wants 7000. What do you say?
Your honor... he is struggling for food. How can he give 7000?
He doesn't look so. How much are you drinking? See, she is asking, so now is your turn to tell us how much you can
1500! No your honor. He earns well. I want 7000 He is a porter! What are you even asking?
Again, they want 7000. What are your thoughts? You rhonor, I have no income!
How can you be trusted?
2000, your honor? Yes your honor! 2000 works! See
[judge] He is willing to give 2000... No your honor I want 7000 Woman! He is yet to pay me fees. How can such a guy pay you 7000?
Madam! Is actor Sanjay's divorce case hearing here?
What? Actor Sanjay's divorce hearing is happening here? Where? NO , that's what I am asking Not here
Hi! Visa office... interview... do you recall me? Can you give a soundbyte now?
Madam, we are waiting downstairs Sir, 5 mins!....2 mins!!!
[Judge] This is going nowhere... Attorney! Its down to you guys sorting it out and agreeing to a settlement amount
Sir, the party is waiting here This is Gandhi.. this is Nesan.. Sir is S. Mahamuni Chandrasekharan Sorry got a bit late. Its ok sir Shall we talk as we walk? So what do you want? Sorry got a bit late. Its ok sir Shall we talk as we walk? So what do you want?
What I do for you?
I need an urgent divorce, sir. Urgent? Uh.. ok..
Are you two separating or you want a mutual divorce?
Anything is ok, sir. I just need it soon Anything? huh. okay. Any problems from your wife?
No sir, she is not there. She died?
No no. I am actually single Single?? Well, that means we have to stop walking.
It is already hell to get a married man divorce and here you are .. 'single'
There have been 4487 divorces granted last year alone some are maintenance cases But your case... this is a first.. very tough Sir, its not that tough. There's an easy solution How?
Sir. Let's get a marriage certificate made first from the registrar's office Then you can bring it under 13B mutual. I can apply for an affidavit in the girl's name Well, even if you do that, they'll check for original proof certificates and both parties need to be physically present for first hearing This will be a mutual. Appearance can be avoided
It's doable! Okay As a senior advocate, I don't usually take such cases. This time, just for you There's a way. Find some girl with the same name and get their ID proof What!? Where do we go find a Kaarmeghakuzhali? No other go. Try to do this first
Have rummaged through Facebook and all social media.
There is no kaarmegham... neither is kuzhali. neither separate nor together Sis... Chutney!
Pour in the centre Shall we search on matrimony sites?
Right, as if you are bride hunting for me You should check the ladies college side
Sir, it's wrong to eavesdrop. And here you are with free advise too. Eat your food
Hey here's a photo!
Surely this old lady would not be alive... even if she was alive She can put some make up and be brought to court Reason for divorce: age difference!
But what if they ask how you didn't know this at the time of marriage?
That's the only problem
Wash your hands! And shut your mouth!
Such useless ideas...
Oh shit.. this lady She was at the embassy the other day. And today at the court too. And now TV.
[..reporting for Tamil News with cameraman Sukumaran; Kaarmeghakuzhali]
Tamil News channel!
Thank you all for coming here. I called this press conference to clarify a few things
Sir our job is not to stir a storm...
Whatever you say, we write You shouldn't misunderstand and write things, that's what our leader said at the start Sir, Kaarme..
What? A car?
Kaarmeghakuzhali... Do you know who is she here?
Sir... first row there, that's the one... with crossed legs So you mean to say its all wrong? Women are responsible for anything wrong befalling women?
Sir, don't take any offense, but...
You are from a Tamil channel, right? Then ask in Tamil!
Ok sir, we shall continue in Tamil
Respected Sir, please don't misunderstand me, but have you paid attention to how your daughter dresses?
My daughter dresses decently My daughters have had an upbringing full of Tamil culture!
Oh yeah? Just a minute, sir
Have you seen her whatsapp picture?
This is not my daughter! This is photoshop!
This is not photoshopped, sir. Its your daughter Hey lady, you are here just to create trouble! Get out!
-Why should I leave??? Just a sec, give me your cell phone!
What is that whatsapp photo you are showing!?
Who are you? Why should I show you?
You better stop making trouble, lady! Who here is the troublemaker!?
We will cancel this press meet!
So, we should remain silent? Please stop inviting trouble.
What are you saying? I won't go. Get out!
If you speak without respect, I'll slap you!
Oh yeah? You? will lay hands on me? Just try!
First go brush your teeth. We shall speak then Dude, let's leave. no no wait Hey I don't want to get whacked here Already I am a refugee This woman's smacking the minister itself Lets go
Hey that's her! Go! Talk to her. What!? You go! No, you go Go now and talk Nesan! I came here trusting you. Go talk. Please!
Please Nesan. Don't make me beg you in front of that girl.
Excuse me , madam! Hello. Hey, how come here? I wanted to speak with you...
Tell me that interview you had asked for... shall I give now?
Oh well. That programme's done. Telecast twice last week too Madan! I have a sensational news for you Scared to send to other channels. Really?
Ok, what is it? just a minute Gandhi! Come here
This is my friend Gandhi. We both came here from Sri Lanka Poor chap... he is a mute
He is asking 'how are you?'
Madam, shall we speak in detail some place?
Ok, tell me Have you heard of the '83 riots? Yes Gandhi lost his entire family in those riots Do they name people Gandhi in Sri Lanka?
Of course. We have a Gandhi in our text books too There are many such Sri Lankan Gandhis in Tamil Nadu here We just found out that Gandhi's mother and sister are actually alive!
They are in London
He's applied for visa to go to London But they rejected him But he didn't lose heart He joined a drama school In a short time, got promoted to manager Now he has a chance to go to London. Then, why hasn't he gone yet?
There is a small problem In the spouse column of his passport, there is a girl's name What do you want from me?
Well, so the thing is, they told at the passport office to get divorce from a person with same name and remove the name from passport How can a woman give you strangers her documents?
Won't it cause her trouble? No no!
We just need the photocopy of the documents. Nothing will happen to her
So then she is broad minded? not concerned with what the society thinks... and someone who has a helping tendency, right? you'll not find a woman like that
Sounds like a donkey slurping away at the coffee! Please drink silently
Well, what's this got to do with me?
Hey, take the passport out
-Why? For not slapping you two!
Idiots! Total time waste!
Sir, we both barely made it out of there without a slap!
Wait.. Sir, that girl is short tempered Is it? She won't publish all this in news I hope No sir, she is a nice girl. If she was nice, she should have helped you No Sir, she.. [cop] - Sir, do you have a change for 500 rupees?
I have not seen any change... Do you have?
[Nesan plays dumb] No sir Sir, check the wine shop nearby! You'll get the short changes Cops never have the need to return any short change. Is he even a real cop?
By the way, why did you become mute on seeing the cop?
I don't have a passport, sir. If they catch me, its camp.
And you, why are you playing dumb before that girl?
He told her I am a Sri Lankan. If I start speaking, she will get to know from my Tamil Oh. All these are your ideas?
Basically, if a problem comes, go mute.
Sir, is there any other way? Nope, she is your only option She was coming from a heated press meet You should've picked a different time Sir, if you find her alone, just fall at her feet
Don't feel ashamed To get your work done, there is no shame in falling at someone's feet
That was a super idea.. with the petrol
"Please do us a favor"
Who are they? No, they looked like my wife and daughter. But no. Poor thing they got scared
Where's your passport? Sir... I lost it What is this? How can Gandhi's passport go missing?
Sir, you apply for the visa. Passport will come Sure?
There's very little time, watch it.
Hello! He's asking how are you We tried calling you on your mobile. Since there was no response, we went to your office and got address
Mom!, how can you let anyone stranger in and make coffee for them???
No, its just water Won't you ask their whereabouts?
They want to give you some news it seems They tried your phone number for 2 days, they say They said they want to meet you. That's why I made them sit here See, they gifted a painting too!
So nice it is, we can hang it in the hall Poor guy, look at him. He seems nice poor chap is mute though Mom! Tsk...

You take money from us and make us beg you?
We have other work too! Boss, forget the interest, just ask for the principal Hey, you better not invite trouble. Just return our amount, and we will leave Don't forego the interest! Don't shout!
[Mom] One day its the politicians, next day these creditors. Such pain!
This girl's no less. Has a charm for inviting trouble We know. We have seen her in action. So why are you two here?
We had asked her for a small favor
Favor? From her? Heh..
She wouldn't lend a pencil to her best friend in school.
It's down to her mood Call me tomorrow. But you don't answer!
Alright, I will answer if it comes from your number
What's this? Why are you shouting here? There are only women here.
Well, you two are men. Let's talk.
He is a mute. I will speak for him!
How much does she owe you? [KK] - Hey, listen to me..
How much? 13000 boss Why are YOU asking for it??

Why didn't you tell this before? You didn't even let me!
You just gave the money off!
Its not my money Its his... they tried to help you dear... You just go inside, Mom never listen to me.. please go!
Nesan! Come, buddy. Come, sit!
Sorry, Gandhi! Leave all that!
At that end, when they were walking away, you said something right? What was it?
Told them not to return... with the hero tone you used there! 'don't ever come this side!'
Why would they!? They are the one's who got full cash!
What I really loved was how you took my money and gave 2000 tips to them! Chanceless
New passport's arrived?
Sir, verification stage I know a guy in the passport office. Shall i have a word?
No need , sir. Let it come normally Haha. Saying no to shortcuts... Gandhi... good Sabha...! Master, I'm Rajesh Its ok, I will tell by myself Look at this man! He's forgotten who I am, but remembers you who just came yesterday Don't laugh!

He is not here. Who's this? I am Karmeghakuzhali.
Uh, is Gandhi there? Yes!
But he can not speak! I know all that. Just give him the phone

Sir, you were saying? The passport can wait, just give rest of the details to Iyyer for the visa application Dude! Calm down.
You are tricking that girl, Karmeghakuzhali!? Nesan introduced me as a mute. What do I do?
How did she change her mind?
Must have pitied us. Refugees begging and all that. Why?
Naaah. Its the 15000 I gave. That worked.
Hey, she doesn't seem the helping for money type She's sympathized with us. That's why
This is why most of the divorces work. Apologize to her.
How many times have I told you not to sit here?
Tea or coffee?
Oh, yeah you are a mute...
Excuse me! Don't call him a mute. Call him a handicap Yes, of course! He is handicapped...vocally handicapped.. of course Ok,, precisely what should I do?
Just give us a photocopy of your proof of birth.
Using that, we can apply for mutual divorce, and send him abroad Ok, in this how can you be so sure I won't face any problem? No no, no problem!
Even if there's trouble, just maintain your birth certificate and other proof vanished as the whole file itself We'll tell that someone stole it and misused it If need arises, we can arrange a predated FIR saying you had complained already There's a way for all blocks
Fine. Let's do this.
If any mishap occurs with all this...you'll see what I will do!
We have seen already, madam
Take a photocopy of this voter ID
Can we have a passport size photo?
Passport size photo?? For what? for the form only...
They didn't tell all this!
Must have missed it There'll be no problem. You can say the vanished file had that photo Ok, ,let me check Wait here Mom, do you have any of my passport size photos?
See, this is why I made so many prints that day. You just scold me for everything. See, now at the time of need...
Ok, give me So many photocopies? New job, is it?
Yes. That's what I thought... 4 months, slogging at this job
never settles down this girl Mom, can you serve them some coffee?
Coffee's ready. But I didn't serve because you will say something Shall I? Yeah, give them
Please sit Mom will bring it
Dear... shall I put this jean for wash?
It's been 3 days! Same jean Ok ,mom! Go!
Mom's like that...
You lost your voice from birth itself, or? Mom!
I asked just like that... Poor chap
As a child he was once chased by a rabid dog. He ran shouting, and lost his voice in the process
Not one but ten dogs
If you marry a white girl, send me pic on whatsapp Would like to see how your wife is
Make a signature for Karmeghakuzhali Who's that?
The girl I am going to divorce without even getting married to I won't do it. Why?
We will pay you. Put sign.
I don't wish to play with a girl's life. So I won't do it The girl herself agreed to all this. So be it!
Just have to draw like this, thats it? Yes. Here.
I began all this. Let me end it.
Sir? Divorce? First time?
Don't worry! Everything will be alright!
Initially it will be like that only. For me it is 4th time I am a regular customer at this court Arranged for the next marriage?
Don't do all that. "Living together" option is the better one Cost effective! I am also thinking along those lines!
Do you see her? Brown saree?
That's my wife We were quite happy right after marriage.... then...
Please sit here
Hi. Here for divorce?
You know everyone who's getting divorced?

Don't you know that both parties should be present for the first hearing? Don't you instruct your client well?
Aren't you hanging out around here for the last 4 years?
You may leave! Next hearing is on 15th. Ask both of them to be present!
Let's go go go! Who's next?
I had warned you at the beginning itself! But you kept saying things will be fine. Now see, pushed me into trouble.
Look how she scolded me, not even considering my seniority!
Shall we try some cash, sir? What! She's a judge!
Isn't she a friend of yours? Oh man Stop fussing for all this. Its a silly matter We can bring a proxy girl. Huh?
Another girl?? Are you trying to help or send us to jail?
Which govt authorized voter ID has a proper photo ever? Look at this...
Like a ghost...
Superb, ma'am! Sir, this junior of yours is all brain head to toe Yeah right. Get her autograph also By the way, how will you manage the marriage photo?
Sir, which girl looks the same as her wedding day?
Excuse me!?! Is that what you think of women!?
I didn't mean it that way You will know if you have to raise a daughter Do you know how the hormone system totally collapses?? I understand...
Fat gets deposited. The entire facial and body structure changes! Sorry!
Haven't they taught you at school?
Stop it! From marriage photo to raising daughters now, come back to topic Find another similar looking girl, we can give a shot then
...that director's film has one set with 150 actors...

Bro, tell me. What kinda girl you looking for?
Like this Alright!
Can you check if you have someone called Karmeghakuzhali?
Right. We only provide the artist. Character name is for you to keep Yes, bring her!
So, wazzup bro, I don't see you?
They called me for multiple films at the same time...
I couldn't give them fixed dates So to avoid all this I decided to get into theatre and drama
I want someone like her
Well, she looks like her! Just some costume and touch up, and voila Sir, is this for a short film or a serial? Its a megaserial
I said "Lets see".. and here you are at the bathroom doorstep Urgent, bro!
I am not a broker for arranging girls My area is straight and clear real estate Bro, that name was itself your idea in the first place Look here, bro. I have 2 nice items One's 22 and the other 42. Take any one of them and adjust You just said you are not a girls broker Bro, these are for personal needs. Its important to safeguard them Dude, let's take one of the broker's girls as Karmeghakuzhali!
We can pay her extra Stop kidding This is the only crooked thing I am yet to do
Dude, how about Aarthi here?
Isn't she the one you want to marry?
Dude! its for acting, right?
Idiot! First she has to accept She might refuse because she loves me
Still, I'll try asking her

Where are you?

This is the main content. TRP will soar
Ok,, lets go Isn't your case over?
Judge has asked Karmeghakuzhali to be present.

OK, see you
I'll also come. Let's see
What, you got the main party itself???
I am here just to watch. She is the one.
Alright OP3514/2014 Sivasaamy Pushpa What's the problem?

Sir! Will a woman have an affair with so many people?
No, ma'am. But she is all lovey-dovey with every man who is at the door!
What's your educational qualification?
M.A., ma'am Yeah? Alright. So, listen.
Cancel the cable TV. And now onwards, let him handle all the milk, gas, and water connection etc No ma'am, please get me divorced No. Divorce is not the solution here This is a mental health issue. Paranoia. Just a small chemical imbalance Just take up medical counselling. Everything will be fine There's more, ma'am!
He shows me all dirty films in the night.
[...I have been married for 12 years...]
How come they are speaking so openly? This is nothing. Things sometimes get more frank
Did you go to the counselling properly?
Yes, ma'am So, what's your decision?
We would get mutually separated Yeah? What do you think?
We don't like living with each other anymore. We want to separate This is the final hearing Tell...
It's decided, ma'am Alright...
What did they say?
Divorce granted. This case was mutual, right That's it?? Yepp. Final hearing it was
It saddens to see so many in line for a divorce Feels like shouldn't get married Every marriage will have issues. So then you won't get married at all?
2 more cases to go, be ready Gandhi, you remember everything we discussed?
Is the girl ready?
Wasn't she on this side? Yeah! She was just here!
What are you doing??
Shouldn't you be more careful with the client?
Wasn't she standing right here? You want me to hold on to her???
You guys? Again??
I can't bear it! Please separate us!
What are you going to do getting divorced at this age?
At least I can die in peace
She's not anywhere to be seen. What!? Oh man Gone... I've no idea how that woman's going to scold me this time Just the thought gives me shudders. Let's just go!
Where are we to go? We have to be present today!
But the girl is missing!
Are you inside? yes Aarthi, they're panicking, its time! Give me 2 minutes
Sir, please understand. If we are absent today, the court notice goes to her house Notice? What notice? Divorce notice Since we have given your address, and this is second hearing that will be missed.
For all these things, be super proficient! But when it comes to actual work... Why are you getting tensed, sir?
Ma'am, Sorry. Don't take it the wrong way. I am telling this for your own good Why don't you present yourself? Me? Why should I? I won't!
Another...way...another way? Nope, none.
Oh, you can understand the mutes too?
Ma'am, what if we nab the notice from the post office before it reaches home?
It will be registered post They will hand it over to her mom, and get signature.
What? Notice will go to my mom???
That's us...gotta go. Sir, let's go
Hello ma'am. Late as always....
I was discussing with the client when you...
Gandhi? Yes, that's him Karmeghakuzhali? Her? Yes So, whats your problem? Why do you need divorce?
We would like to mutually separate That is obvious, isn't it?
What is the reason?
He cannot speak
It's not mentioned here...
Did you know during the marriage? Yes So whats the trouble now? Lot of misunderstanding between us
Misunderstanding??? Yes Why, you guys can't fight peacefully is it?
No n.... uh... yes
You guys are young. Don't jump into decisions Ma'am they have reached mutual understanding! Go for counselling Ma'am! No, but they are here after mutual agreement! Get going, sir. Take them to counselling Call the next case
Nesa, what happened? What did she say there? Counselling, it seems Counselling??
Oh its just two retired seniors sitting and advising couples the run-of-the-mill traditional values of marriage and all that What is he saying?
As in, do these two have to go for it No no not needed Hand me 3000 rupees That's for something something insider help Take this 3000 and pass it to Harikrishnan in there Tell him to give it saying its from me
Do you want me to go counselling instead?
Shut up... she is always like this Once during a play, I had to play the female lead because of her antics
Ok sir! 2 mins!
All this is normal for us. Gave it. Shall we go then?
Just gotta show your face once
She won't come. You go talk to them!
Let her say... It'll take 2 mins. Just answer them and get going.
Fine, let's go Well, what s there to say and do now. Lets go Come..
Hari sir... This is them Seen right? Ok lets go...
Ask them to sit. We need some QnA for the records Sit down. Just for two mins Please wait outside
Gandhi.. Karmeghakuzhali Such matching names... such a nice tamil name Love marriage?
Who asked out first?
Oh, you? You guys look made for each other Why do you want a divorce so early?
So its ok to get a divorce later?
What she is trying to tell is that...
It takes 5 years for newly married couples to understand each other well. Why not wait until then?
Both of us are fed up of living with each other
People are being in love for 6 to 7 years easily... but when they get married, it takes only 6-7 months to ask for a divorce These guys today... how...
You are the one who said 'I love you' to him, and now you are the one asking for a divorce?
Did he mention any problems, please ask him He is not deaf. You can ask him directly
What's he saying? that he wants a divorce
Any physical problems?
How is you sex life?
nothing worth saying
what's that? he's just saying the same thing what I said, with some anger
Are you two husband and wife? Oh, no no!
We are separate. I am a bachelor
Did no one from your family object to this divorce?
What exactly is your problem?
Financially any concer.. Sir, enough!
Don't waste our time askng too many questions I can't live with someone like him who can't even speak properly or communicate How can you speak so insensitively, being from the media?
Aren't you the reporter from Tamil News?
I've seen her. On the TV Look how she is speaking How can you be so rude and insensitive?
So finally done? Must've tortured you with questions in there.
I was not ready to give even a photocopy of my documents...
Now, see what all this has brought me to.
I beg you, please don't ever contact me again Sir, remove all my proofs from the case file
Why are you following me?
Please go away before I say something Wait a minute!
I can speak. I am not a mute...
Let me explain everything. Please listen. Then you can say whatever you feel
I am a villager Its tough Just had a wish to fix everything by going abroad and finding a job During my passport application they asked me to put any girl's name in the wife section I swear I don't know how I put your name in there And Nesan... out of nowhere he told you I am a mute, and I had to keep up with the act Because if I speak you will find out I am not a Sri lankan You had no idea who I am and where I am coming from...
Still you trusted me and came this far out to help me... you are truly....
from our side... you will not have any more trouble
Why did you tell her everything!?
I would have come clean to her even if the divorce was simple
Cheating is wrong And on top of that cheating saying you are handicapped...is so wrong If tomorrow someone asks her for help stating handicap, would she even trust them?
If I knew so much trouble was to occur, I would have just told master the truth Just kept on adding lies over lies and look where you have brought me Sir, shall we just come clean to the judge and withdraw our case?
You can't just withdraw...
That girl has to come Sir, we are then going to get into trouble trying to help you No no...
Doesn't your law has any loopholes we can use?
Will you stop it? Is all this not enough?
This voter ID we arranged after staking night and day at the corporartion office Look how she maintains it

Bro, if you can help, help. Keep quiet otherwise What would you have me do??
Shall we head straight to the embassy??
Give me the number. Let's try to google the location In a while you are gonna get a SOS video as whatsapp forward only...
Do you have any sense!?!
Bro, you are worked up right now. That's why riling up against me. Otherwise you are a sweet guy, I know Nesan, just look into it. I'll be back
If he worked here in the busiest town itself, cops would find him suspicious. This guy and London...heh

Don't ask Cruel bastards I was so sure I am going to die there I decided if I come out alive, I am going to our native temple and get tonsured
Banana? Bye guys
Dude! Couldn't stay away from us right?
I asked you to help me board a bus to Madurai. Not Tirupathi Wait, we will come too!
Dude... looks like wherever he goes, they send him back.
I was the sad one. You are having bananas there. So stop it No, both buses were white .. So..
Why is all my stuff outside?
You said family friends! They were cops! We know. Such a fraud Fraud? Who's the fraud? You!
Did you even tell me about the previous tenant? Hung himself to death here!
You are the fraud!
Look how he's talking! I had warned you not to rent the house Such a goody two shoes he was when he came Look at him speak now!
You have built something worse than a slum hut, and now acting as if it was some palace!
You know, in my village, the land I own...
This house of yours is peanuts in comparison Do you know how much land I owned? 6 acres!
How many cents make an acre? Dont know
1 acre = 100 cents. That makes my 6 acres 600 cents. You can build 800 houses in that area! And a pond additional!
Sure, then why have you not built them? And rent them out???
Didn't you come here because you can't make a living in your hometown?
And look at you how you are treating someone who is struggling to make a living. Throwing them out You there! I am paying you the rent!
Whats with the additional 8 rupees electricity bill?
The wiring needs to be pulled up from ground floor! Who will pay for that!
If you want to rent out a place its your job to fix that wiring!
Fix a fan, a bulb, and also a motor to pump the water!
All these should be part of a house! These are the things one pays rent for, you idiot Hey! How can you talk like this to my husband? And you, why are you standing like a statue??
We haven't come here because we are homeless... We've lived like kings back in our village Stingy cheapos!
Hey! Who'll take these things? Take them away!
Hey tell me That house owner... he emptied my house and threw my stuff out Oh shit Where are you?
Has master come?
Late afternoon only Why? I am going to tell him all the truth I can't take it anymore Dude, don't rush it!
Be patient You earn more than us...
Just come here. We can figure things out If master comes, tell him I will be late Why, where are you going?
Boss, are you looking for something?
Want to take a new passport?
No, I need to remove wife's name from my passport Simple... I am not married Oho.. so this is that category Its very simple. First get a divorce done with her name I have a friend who is a lawyer at the family court. Go meet him and...
All tried already. Thanks Boss wait wait! If this idea didn't work, I can give other ideas!
If you go in there now, they will keep shuttling you from one table to another Then your work will never get done in time oh.. go on, talk Where are you? I am at the passport office Ok, stay there. I will see you shortly. What? I am coming
I've got the idea!
First go to your area police station and file a complaint for missing wife Today? Yes Then... A friend's friend I know works at the mortuary We can go to him and buy an unclaimed corpse of a 25 year old woman Then we ready a fake ID card with your wife's name Stuff the ID with the corpse and throw it into the river then? Next morning you'll get a call from the area station Saying that a dead 25 year old woman's body has been found asking you to come identify You just have to go and act and cry and you can get a death certificate confirming it is your wife!
Once we have that, then all this is nothing!
How much do you charge for this service?
Uh.. I can't do all this alone. This requires teamwork Let me go discuss with the others inside Stay here, don't go anywhere! I'll be right back
Another important thing!
There are many fraud brokers loitering around here. Whoever comes and asks, say nothing!
Come let's go home. Why?
Mom knows everything Okk. Why do I have to come?
My mom is suspecting me!
She thinks I had actually married you and that I am trying to divorce you now!
She's torturing me asking me not to throw away my life with you Uh.. what happened to that marriage alliance the other day?
That was a waste. Didn't work out You just come and tell her the truth. That will be good for you
Give me 5 mins Hey! Are you trying to escape?
please wait, I will be back
Excuse me, sir!
Hello, sir. Tell me There is a mistake in my passport I want to rectify Go to counter 4. No,sir I want to speak with you
I tried to go to London using a tourist visa , to settle abroad A broker told me that married people get visa easily So I put a girl's name in the wife section Visa got rejected. So I found a job here.
What did you do then?
I listened to many people and ideas and tried to get a divorce and then a court case and all that. Nothing worked Just wasted money Now you want that girl's name removed? yes sir Our people have gotten used to getting everything done through shortcut How much did you spend? Quite some money, sir How many boards have we put out there to be beware of brokers?
Aren't you educated?
Why do you think the government has made such a big office with all of us employees here?
At the end you will have to come here only. Why didn't you do this at first!?
Where's your passport?
You are truly single, right?
I swear, sir
Go give this to the help desk You'll get a form. Fill it and pay the fine You will get a new passport with name removed, within 15 days Ok sir How much is the fine?
Around 1300 rupees
That's it, sir? Government will only charge so much You may go. Thank you sir
Sir himself signed??
Oh you went directly to him Did he say something? No
It is a good thing you went and saw him directly Unnecessarily why go through so many middlemen Each one will tell one thing. And you will keep going round in circles I would have told this to you that day itself. What if you misunderstood...
We are all so scared of him. But you are so brave!
Fill this form up, and sign it
Sir, just a minute. Please give me my passport Why? Just for 5 mins. I will be back
Ok lets go I need to ask you something before that What is it?
Shall we both get married?
Because I like you a lot They told the name can never be removed from the passport?
No Passport officer himself has approved a change.
Oh, this is what you have been going through so much for. You can finally do it, right?
What if this is another story you are spinning? How do I trust you?
From whatever has happened so far, I don't know what you have taken me for I won't cheat you now onwards I won't lie to you...I like you a lot. If you are okay, we can go talk to your mom about our marriage Shall we?
Okay. Let's go
Hello ma'am Karmeghakuzhali, what have you decided?
Uh, we have decided to live together Then why did you fight and walk out from the counselling session?
That was just anger at that time, ma'am Now you don't find his handicap a problem?
He was lying back then. Now he isn't like that. He is under my control I love him
You guys are all so young! That is why we ask you to go for a 6 month counselling Ma'am it was a genuine help I decided to give so that these youngsters have a good life Right. You may go
Come, lets go
To day we both have shared this journey so far and are together, all thanks to him. He started it I only suggested Karmegham. He added the Kuzhali Thank you Madam, this is the party I told you about Have you told about the rent? Yes of course, 9500 rupees!
You can only park 1 bike here. No problem His bike will be here. His wife's bike will be outside Oh, married???
Sorry sir... We rent out only to bachelors.
Thanks. Bye They should start a new engineering course to understand a house owner's mind
Now where to...
There's a house this way. Surely you will get it
Hey, at least say something and leave, you idiot Shall I?
I am gonna miss those ever smiling lips I am gonna miss these eyes that glare at me Oh well, you are speaking too much. Should'nt have asked you only And I am gonna miss this beautiful curly haired girl You are gonna miss that flight,actually!
Are you too sad to let your husband go?
Nothing like that sir Such a good guy. I wanted to make him my son-in-law Its ok, you are also like a daughter to me You should have told me before, I would've applied for her visa too If he would have told you everything then, he himself would've had to sit out Oh yes If I had known he was a fraud...
Not only would I have fired him, but handed over to cops too master, I think it is time for the flight Oh yes, we should leave Hey guys, assemble everyone Bye
