Pitch dark. Background music of birds chirping. Slowly the sun rises.
Camera focuses on a long muddy road. Long shot of a bus (dark red color) approaching.(BGM Naveen’s flute. Kisna Theme) Camera next focuses on the bus stop.
Whistle from the conductor.
Meera(Meera Jasmine as Meera): Vaaganampatti?
Double Whistle. Bus leaves and lots of dust arise from the road
Once the dust settles down, Meera crosses the road and starts walking towards the village. She encounters a small kid wearing a khakee brown half trouser, white sleeveless banian and Ferrari cap.

Seri seri ippo dhaan oorla irundhu vandhu irukeenga. Poi kulichitu edavadhu saaptutu vaanga. (Turns back towards the house and shouts) Appathaaa. Indha ponna kootikitu po.
Vadivukarasi comes out and takes Meera inside the house
(Camera moves ahead of Meera. So it will look like Meera looking at things)
The house is a typical village house. There is no roof at the centre. As she enters the house it looks pretty dark and sun light fills the centre. Light yellowish light.
Meera looks around. One of the walls is painted red and there is a huge photo of Nasser with Enzo Ferrari. Black and white photo. And many other photos of Niki Lauda, Michael Schumacher, Jean Todt, Ross Brawn and other leading Ferrari personalities. Miniature Ferrari cars and a Desktop Computer, Sony Trinitron 21 inches TV.
This is to the left of Meera. Now she looks at the right side.
This wall is painted yellow and contains pictures of Periyar, Karl Marx, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King and Subash Chandra Bose. There is a mini library with books of bharathiyar, periyar and others.
Vadivukarasi shows her the bathroom.
Nimmadhiya kavalai padaaama kuLi maa. Inga thanni kashtamum kedayaadhu. Bathroom la thiruttu camera vum kedayadhu.
Meera gets inside and closes the door. Entire frame becomes dark
Meera wearing a light blue jean and dark blue top approaches Kamal.
Kamal is sitting listening to some song. (Kamal is wearing a cream color 3/4th and Ferrari T-shirt. He is barefooted. 3/4th of his head and mush with grey hairs)
After seeing Meera, Kamal removes his headphone
Kamal: Vanesse mae. Another perfectionist

Sakthivel: Retired life. Inga cost of living romba kammi. ESPN-Star Sports paaka set top box thevai illai.
Meera: Unga chinna vayasa pathi sollungaLen.
At that time one small guy is playing with a tyre and stick. Michelin Tyre. And it rolls back
Sakthivel: Dei dei paathuda adhu tubeless tyre. Bridgestone vachi velayaadhu. Lesula puncture aagadhu
Tyre keeps rolling in reverse direction
(While this is happening, Sakthivel in the background says)
Sakthivel: 25 varushathhukku munnadi naan Pallavaram English Electric Company la velai paathutu irundhen)
