Kaaka Muttai

(Crows egg)

Thirty thousand rupees

All gone, I guess

Eat your vegetables!

You could come, too...

He asked to see you the last time

I'm not coming

Have you got money to get there?

I have a hundred rupees

I'll hitch a ride with Sarasu's husband

Don't wander away, you two!

Hey, water lorry!

Wetting the mat every other day...

Why did you hide this?

Hey, don't run!

Wait till I catch you...

Ill chop your wee-wee

and feed it to the crows!

What a brilliant idea!

Why didn't you lock it up in a suitcase?

You sneak rice from home!

It's not the same thing

Shut up!

Hey, Crow's Egg!

Want to play cricket with us?

No thanks! Buzz off!

Is it there?

It's here!

How many?

No! One for you,

one for me and one for the crow

Boss, this Karna is a real fraud

Goes on demanding interest

over his money

Go on promising to pay him


Still drinking this?


Boss, drinking this will make you muscular!

Boss, the leader is here

Let's go

Greetings, leader! Greetings, brother!

Hello, Naina!

These are our boys, sir

They work in television

Call them if you need a local commercial...

...but they're frauds!

This doesn't look like

ten thousand square feet

It will be accurate, sir

It better be!

We're investing eighty million on this

Did you say eighty million?

Then our commission is

eight hundred thousand

But we agreed on four hundred thousand!

Sir, you first said it was forty million

...but your man says it's eighty!

So it's eight hundred thousand, right?

One percent!

It's just a slip of the tongue

Sir, some men you've got!

Hey, come here

It's impossible to find ten thousand

square feet of real estate these days

Everyone is breaking it

into little pieces and selling!

- Ask dad for the cell phone

- You ask him if you want it!

Don't you want it?

You won't give it to me anyway

I'll give you! Ask him!

Hey, did you drink crow's egg yolk?


Can't blame you

It's your Granny's fault

Give it to me

How are you?

I am okay

Are you taking your medicines on time?

Why have you become like this?


There's nothing wrong with me

What's up with the Old Lady?

She's okay! She wanted to come,

but I didn't bring her along

Where are the kids?

They're outside

They say kids are not

allowed inside the T.B ward

It's them, right?


It's Daddy!

What are you doing?

We are playing with the cat

Playing with the cat!

What are you yelling for?

My sons are outside

You can't talk to them

Daddy, can you get us a

cell phone when you come?

What are you doing?

Constable, ask them to be quiet

They are shouting at the outside

Time's up! You need to leave

Are they going to school regularly?

Didn't have money to run the house

So I pulled them out

They're picking coal now

Why did your dad go to prison?

Don't know

Why is your name 'Pazharasam(Fruit Juice)'?

I used to eat only fruits and juice

when I was a kid! That's why

What are you eating now?

Rice and vegetable stew

My name is 'Kaaka Muttai(Crow's Egg)'

'Fruit Juice' and 'Crow's Egg'

Or should I tell mom?
