Payanangal Thodargirathu - Bye bye Chennai :(

A long over due post. Ever since i landed in Chennai, i was expecting this day, when the city would shun me away. It lasted a year and half this time.

How many ever national awards Dhanush goes on to win and how best ever Shruthi performs on screen or catch a controversy or two off the screen, neither He not She will be able to get over the cloud of their father and in law from hovering over them. As far the movie, both have given wonderful performances. They hav
