l believed in America.

l thought this country

would be my salvation.

When l was seven,

my dad died of cancer.

So my mom and l had

to stay with my uncle.

The day my mom died,

l made a resolution... escape this middle class rut

and get my doctorate in the U.S.

As if on cue, Uncle Jagannathan

arranged our alliance.

Conveniently, he was in the U.S.,


l see.

That's why you agreed to marry

Mr. Vishwanath, despite the age difference.

Of course it was

a marriage of convenience.

l don't know what Wiz expected,

but he knew what he was getting into.

- Wiz?

- Yes, Wiz is my husband.

- Oh, is that your pet name for him?

- No way!

Everyone called him that, so l did too.

We've never been a loving couple.

l told him from the start

that l came here to study.

To hit the books, not the sack.

He smiled and agreed.

He has a great sense of humour though.

So, what is your Ph.D. on?

Nuclear oncology.

l had several job offers lined up...

But l chose Deep

nuclear research and oncology.

The pay was good.

No complaints at all, till...

Till Deepak?

Who is Deepak? Does he

work at your company?

No, no.

l work at his company.

He's my boss and is very rich.

That's not why l started this...


l'm not a bad person, doctor.

None of my patients are.

And you're not even my patient.

l agreed to see you for Bindu's sake.

She said you were her

rock during her divorce.

She recommended Peter Manivannan.

Detective Peter Manivannan here.

Quickly, tell me.

He just stepped out of class.

Right now following your husband madam.

Okay! Just find out if there's

another woman in his life.

Most likely it won't be a woman.

Let me know either way, immediately.

lf he hasn't, l'll feel very guilty.

So guilt seems to be the key here.


When do you feel guiltier?

Before or after sex?

- What sex?

- With your secret lover.

How crude! Nothing like

that has happened...yet.

Yet? So it's imminent?

lmminent? Look doctor, even if

l do it, what's wrong with that?

lt's nothing new in America.

Didn't Bindu tell you about my husband?

He's your husband.

You tell me.

When did you and Vishwanath

stop living as a normal couple?

He's not normal.


How is he?

You are the unique king of Aninaya.

Child of Gokula.

You emit crores of light.

ln this land of sorrow

you have come as the savior.

How many times

will l yearn and die?

What should l do

for you to accept me?

Vaakala who has

accepted the worn garland.

The girl was tired

of yearning for him.

He sent her to

lndarlok as an angel.

Will you accept

the infatuation of the lady?

Aayardham Maaya you come.

Aaya Maaya.

Aayardham Maaya you come.

Aaya Maaya.

Aayardham Maaya you come.

Aaya Maaya, come.

Without seeing you, l am not me.

No root without a seed.

Without seeing you, l am not me.

No root without a seed.

Krishna! Without seeing you, l am not me.

No root without a seed.

Sky that seen daily is not true.

Dream that gives pleasure

is not happiness.

l'm not me without you.

Without seeing you,

without seeing you.

Without seeing you,

without seeing you.

Without seeing you

the heart of the lady is in unrest.

No root without a seed.

Shaamala Ranga with lyrical love.

You are the Linga

who dances to the beat.

She is tired without proper sleep.

Radha is the one

who is yearning for you daily.

Radha is for you only

Only one Radha is for you.

You have superb hearing, guruji.

You are the expert, Brahmin lady

Tell me how the chicken tastes.

How do you cook meat so well

despite being a vegetarian?

Don't even ask.

You know my wife.

She loves chicken.

And l love my wife.

l'm lucky to have been

blessed with such a good wife.

The story is over.

Off you go now.

lf you see like that

how l will approach you?

l stood in front of mirror

and saw myself.

To join together,

l did rehearsal for...

...Hundred dramas and l looked for you.

Without expecting, he...!

Without expecting, he...!

Oh! He came from

my behind hugged like a top...

...and he kissed lip to lip.

She forgot that there

is a world near her.

Like a dress on the body

will you wear me?

From now on?

From now on? Kannaa...

My eyes which don't sleep,

will sleep because of Kannan.

From now on...From now on...

Without this happening.

Without seeing you.

With this my heart beat have ended.

Without thinking that useless carving.

l'll live by breathing you.

Deceit thief, Kanna Kanna.

Desired artist Kanna Kanna.

Deceit thief, Kanna Kanna

Desired artist Kanna Kanna.

Okay? Well, then...

- Should l leave?

- Eat first and then go.

You can use our bathroom.

Hey! Shut the door.

You want your guru to catch pneumonia?

Get going, ladies.

Two lives are involved here.

Actually, three.

Dinner for two then...

He's probably made dinner already.

You eat at home every night.

Just for a change...

Okay Mrs. Vishwanath, what if

your boss asks you to work overtime?

The matter is settled.

Go to my office, cash in the safe and

then dinner, l'll take that as yes...

Sounds like Uncle and Dawkins need to

brief us about something over dinner.

But how? ln front of Nirupama?

Nirupama won't be home for dinner.

Did you have a premonition?


Hello, Mrs. & Mr. Vishwanath residence.

l know it is Nirupama.

l've cooked a fantastic dinner for you.

Along with a special surprise.

- Ask me what it is.

- No.

Kill joy.

There's no need! Send my

apologies to your uncle.

You said you were at work.

l'm going from the lab

to the office with the lab technician...

...the Mexican,

You're being a typical husband.

Bombarding me with

questions and suspicions.

That's all l can do over the phone,

since l can't see you.

Are you mad at me?

No, l'm all smiles!

You just can't see it over the phone.
