You must take all this in a lighter vein If you’re serious you’ll be in a soup He needs 2 tight slaps from you, bro My dear sister Violence is never a solution to any problem He has every right to give you a love letter Like you have every right to accept or reject – Say yes or no – No…! Sorry, bro If you call me bro, I’ll break your teeth Singam, he has come to apologize and you’re threatening to hit him Shut up! He will call me bro for 5-6 years and then hit on my sister, huh? What are you trying to say? Is he wrong in calling you ‘bro’? Or he shouldn’t have hit on your sister? – Don’t confuse me, Singam – You are the confused soul I accept his apology Ask him to go Singam has forgiven you Now you can g- He vanished into thin air! Mahishasura Mardhini…? Hereafter Vicky won’t come even an inch near you! – Singam reprimanded him – My foot! He’s here at the bus stop looking at me head to toe He followed you there, huh? He is indulging in eye-talk, brother Is he? Give me the phone Xavier anna – Do something – You expect me to? Don’t drag me into any mess Hop into a bus soon and go home Singam He didn’t scoot in fear He went to wait in the bus stop I believe he’s there standing and indulging in eye-talk Is he asking for trouble? Hey Mahi, watch your step Good morning, sir – Good morning – Do you remember me? She was born in your ambulance I named her after you as Vishnupriya – She’s sleeping – Yes, sir – Okay then – See you, sir Yes, dear? He almost banged his bike on me Making some weird sounds to top it all Say something, bro Girls – Any help? – Get lost – What happened, Singam? – This Vicky is being a pain May be only a few tight slaps will pipe him down Bro, he’s standing right behind me in the bus
He seems kind of weird One brake and he will fall all over us Get lost! – ‘Rascal’ – Mahi Take your hands off me What exactly is your problem? If you go overboard, you’ll get the same treatment Stop the bus Let’s get down They will reform only if we clobber them, scumbags! You’ll get it someday They seem to ask for it – Vishnu – Yes, pa What is this? You brought him here as your friend Look what he has done This doesn’t seem right I won’t go to college anymore Do you want to burn down the house scared of bed bugs?! Isn’t he your brother’s friend?! He’ll keep thinking about it You go to college tomorrow I’ll accompany you Let me see his reaction – What’s up, Singam? – He’s torturing my sister Why has he become like this? Where is he now? You’ll get it from me In a public place she has threatened to clobber you You listened to her threat with your tail tucked in Had it been me in your shoes I would have chopped her in that same spot You are good for nothing You can’t do anything to her – Who says so? – You are fit only to eat and crap! She’s Miss World’s clone She’s the beauty queen of our town If he flashes his 32 teeth at her will she at once fall flat for him? She’s arrogant because she knows she looks good Let’s ruin her looks Height of humor! Eat and sleep You know only that! Hey, Computer…! You’ll get it one day I’ll retaliate in public In the same bus I’ll disfigure her face Only then I’ll be at peace My mind will be at ease No one will come to her aid – Each to his or her own – I can’t stand it, man In Delhi He stabbed her 37 times in the middle of the road Did anyone come to her rescue? Not a single soul What did bystanders do? They took videos And of course selfie! Scaredy cats! I’ll do it I’ll kill her You are with me, right? Look! He is in a dilemma What’s on your mind? What are you thinking now? Got scared of her brother? Is he the cat’s whiskers? Will he bump us off? You haven’t seen me in action You will see Jut wait and watch I’ll show her my true colors I’ll give a daaaamn strong knock to that chap also I’ll knock him down – Knock me down – Don’t invite trouble – Try your luck – No need I’ll knock you flat out Go…get lost! – Stand here – Don’t hit me, bro Call him too Hey, come here I’ll kill you Come here Bro, Computer is trying to escape Hey, Computer – Come here – I’m not drunk Hey! You are the criminal, come here Come…come this side Stand over there Come Singam, keep an eye on them – I’ll be back – Okay, Singam ‘Hey! Don’t run’ ‘Walk slow and steady’ ‘Look who is the Brain box here!’ Not because she is my sister I would’ve come to the rescue of any of our girls in trouble When a girl rejects you, why don’t you learn to take ‘no’ for an answer? Do something to make her like you Getting attracted to a person is not just looks Actions speak louder than appearance! You were a good man You got into bad company They have made you half crazy After you’re 100% loony they will arm you And you’ll also comply I can’t turn a blind eye My sister is important to me
More than that, you are very important to me ‘Very important’ If we try to pounce when we should be protecting them what will these girls do? Women should respect us If they don’t respect us no point in calling ourselves ‘men’ We live only once Let’s be of help to people A person dies not when he stops breathing But when the last memory of him leaves this world The next generation should think about us We should prove our mettle Not by drinking and creating a ruckus I feel terrible Listen I don’t know why you befriended me I sincerely valued your friendship If we can correct a mistake, why can’t we try? Will you listen to me? Will you? This is enough for me, come Are you his dear friends? If your friend has a problem you should come up with an idea beneficial to both sides And get him out of the mess That fits the word ‘friendship’ This is unfit friendship Singam, these 2 fellows will sell their souls for freebie booze and ‘biriyani’ The one in the middle was the one who added fuel to the fire If it was your sister, will you give the same idea? From pure souls like Andal, Meera to ordinary girls many have gone through unrequited love Status quo even now If they start throwing acid many men will be faceless zombies! They understood long ago circumstances is the answer We men are still living in delusion Chasing a girl who is not interested Flirting with a girl who is engaged and confusing her may work in reel life It is a sin in real life Stop this bad habit Devil resides within them This is too good a preaching Please wait outside, Singam Bathe them well in your blows No one should give such ideas ‘Will you come up with this idea?’ Why target only me? Beat him up too (clamor of indignant voices) Run now…scoot ‘I won’t give any idea to anyone!’ Run…run…run for your life “Bye for now, I will soon see you” “You are the kith & kin for this koel blue” “If you are with me; from above” “Even the blue sky will shower its love” “The 2 birds are different, true” “Their wings are of varied hue too” “Still the journey is the same direction” “I will never ever forget your affection” “Bye for now, I will soon see you” “You are the kith & kin for this koel blue” “If you are with me; from above” “Even the blue sky will shower its love” “The 2 birds are different, true” – Hello? – Huh? – Is this yours? – No – I found it on the road – ‘Put it in the temple collection box’ – Okay, will do – What…? It’s my ring, you slipped it off my finger, slide it back “I will never ever forget your affection” ‘DAY 01: Humanitarian Concern’ ‘DAY 02: Psychological Impact’ When we are on duty, relatives of patients may even hit us in a fit of temper Even if they hit us
our goal should be to save that patient ‘DAY 03: Prudence’ ‘DAY 04: Medicine’ ‘DAY 05: Promptness’ ‘DAY 06: Godliness’ ‘DAY 07: Field Work’ Yov! Get up Lift her, come on The child is alive Good, keep it up! “I had made a mess of my life yesterday” “To make me a better man, you came my way” “Disputes and me made history actually” “You reformed me from Hyde to Jekyll totally” “Though I was the wrongdoer your good heart made me a do-gooder” Tell me, Vicky I have to share something I saved a life My God! What a feeling! I feel I’ve achieved a big feat! My mind and heart want to reach out more! – Soul-satisfying – What a reformation! within me You’ve shown me a world of good deeds beyond girls and bad habits! Do good That’s an intoxicating drug Next generation will think of me I’ll make them remember me I’m so proud of you ‘Save Agriculture’ You feed everyone How can you do this? Let’s face every crisis Soon you’ll be revered as God “Even if we fall, not a weed but we should be a seed” “To be praised by posterity let us conquer life with dignity” “Let disgrace and defeat be the fertilizer” “To regain our identity, rebel in anger” “Everything is life’s lesson for tomorrow” “Why then be immersed in sorrow?” “If we rise, heart and soul 8 directions we’ll control” Tell me, Vicky Finish your training and come back I’ve put in a word for you You can get a transfer to our village “Bye for now, I will soon see you” “You are the kith & kin for this koel blue” Don’t get scared, be brave She has got her contractions Pull the van over to the side – Tell me, dear – Who is that, Singam? With the left indicator on, signaling his right hand, he is riding straight! That’s our Computer! Won’t he never reform! Old habits die hard, huh? Singam, men like him will bang into those who follow traffic rules Overtake and go near him
Don’t use your cell phone while driving She keeps calling me And gets me beaten by random strangers Sign this document Will he sign only after reading it? Is he the minister or am I? He is the minister Why is he having doubts? It’s a lucrative contract I have clinched the deal Money will be delivered at home 1/2 kilo gold this time for you – Ask him to sign – Go ahead What about me? – 1/4 kilo for you – Okay Listen, it shouldn’t rake up neighbors’ envy – If it does, we will be in the doldrums – Okay ‘His people’s tears of woe, are not they weapons to erode the king’s wealth away?’ Thiruvalluvar’s pearl of wisdom Let him speak on stage He will get a standing ovation – Why show off to us? – True Where is your son? He hasn’t been himself past few days Not stepping out of his room Only Muruga checks on him What…? Please sit Sit down Is turkey ‘biriyani’ ready for him? Piping hot and ready Sign and eat before it gets cold! Take care of your health Quoting Valluvan and Van Gogh What happened to you? WILL YOU LEAVE ME ALONE? PLEASE LEAVE What happened? He isn’t saying anything Ask him Bro…? What happened, bro? Jayakumar, is it a case? Some accident in the corner road Hurry up…go It’s been 4 months since the club was started No clue to nab that thief Frequently a white apparition aims only at me and collides into me Not equipped to catch that either Singam, I can hear your mind voice – Sharp specific hearing – I can hear your sarcasm too You claim a white apparition runs We shall catch it today, happy? You don’t believe me? I’ve never seen it Show it to me, I’ll believe – Here…here – Where…? There it is Vanished in the blink of an eye Do you believe me at least now? Comrades, 2 per direction Round up Gandhi Nagar We will nab the white figure I’m not coming Can’t take another attack! Singam, if you’re alone you’ll get scared – Come with us – No need, Singam I’ll stay here It makes a beeline for me I caught it red-handed Come…come this side Singam, hold it Let me bang it a few times How could you let it go? – Ran away – Why do you look like you saw a ghost! – Do you know who ‘it’ is? – Who, Singam? Our Bagalamugi teacher My God! Is that so? During the day time she looks like a delicious dessert In the night runs like a bubbling booze! Hey! Lions It ran this way Follow me – Come…come on – Wretched imp His sister ran this way Oblivious of that he’s running this side! What a topsyturvy world! We shouldn’t let our tongue run It has to do with a girl Even if we miss a little her future will go amiss! I think she must be under the spell of some black magic We must deal carefully You deal with the deal, Singam Goddess Kali who destroys evil Not an ordinary deity But a very powerful Goddess Anyone who is possessed cannot enter Her temple The moment she steps into the temple our Goddess will whirl her around and fling her furlongs away By the way why suddenly to the temple? New moon day Auspicious Singam…?
Your candidate is here Saw how she walks? Coming…coming Let her cross the step Then we can tell On a new moon day, she is happily entering the temple Your father said she will be whirled and swirled around Looks like a very powerful spirit Why is it staring at me? I don’t want to be hurled around! Yov! Xavier – Singam – Where are you? I’m here Hurry up What quick strides! – She went into the sanctum – Maybe possessed only at night? – Very mysterious – What, bro? Whatever! That girl shouldn’t wake up at midnight and run Do this for me, somehow tie this amulet without her knowledge on her waist Take it Take this and tie it on your brother’s hip This doesn’t seem right – Why…? – Aim of the club is something else! – ‘Don’t forget’ – Why…? That whole sprinting spirit plan was to hook your brother! You didn’t let me know If you had told me, I could have joined your marathon Was he in that state to listen? He’s always surrounded by a few thugs Along with my brother Vaikundam To separate him from that crowd I ran a spirit-athon! Soul satisfying! Okay, go home I’ll come in a bit Getting rid of me, huh? You must pray in a temple and go home, not sleep here Scoot, see you How convenient! When chaste maidens at midnight- I can’t talk now We can catch up at night Maybe a few words now? Okay, give me the amulet See you Tie the amulet as protection for you Tie it, Singam What is the aim of our club? To nab the thief – What are we doing now? – Singam Should never retreat when you move forward I am glad you agree She accepted in the temple she has problems She said she will let me know the details tonight If we get to know the deal and clear the air we can save the teacher, right? You’re close enough to strike a deal with her! That is…little bit Carry on…enjoy! There it is! Running in there I will teach her- Singam Please tell her strictly not to step into my area Rip her apart Just watch! – Go…all the best – Look here, stop Aiyaiyo! Look…halt! Turn 1 tight slap! Take off your mask Give it to me Withdrawal symptoms, huh? Am I a lunatic to keep running? I’ll wake up at midnight and usually walk Seeing your group I’ll start running Is my friends’ gang so terrorizing? By the way did my brother see you? Don’t worry, he won’t Singam would’ve sent him back, relax Come here What did you want to tell me at night? Oh! That…? – Following for 6 months – Who…? – You…? – You?! Blessed female! If boys follow you girls you find out with just 1 look I had no idea you were following me for 6 months! Only if you see my face you can guess – If you’re on your toes at work – That’s why you ran behind me! By the way though we patrol at midnight, we are scared – Aren’t you scared? – You are my savior! All along we’ve been scared of you! Thank God, I caught you What would’ve happened if someone else caught you? You seem to be taking all the credit I came and held you! Hey, don’t say it loudly I’ll rip you apart! – I have a doubt – What…? Why are you still single? No one was interested That’s the truth Nobody ran into my life! When my mother was alive she would harp on getting me married She passed away There was no one in my life to broach the topic Not just that I must fall in love Instead of me falling in love I wanted to marry a girl who loves me The wait has a charm of its own I got a charmer like you I feel very happy
If you hadn’t played this 6 months waiting game and professed your love at once you would be well into your 2nd trimester with our baby Okay, I can’t wait any longer I can’t wait either Come home soon Let us go right away Bring your father and discuss with my father – Is that all? – Yes, that’s it – Nothing else? – No – Really? – Yes – True? Promise – True! I swear!! Right, leave now They are here Go…see you – As girl or ghost? – Sprint as a spirit That’s my story all along Here’s your mask Run without any of them noticing you Did it explain anything? That is…a foreign spirit No wonder our soothsayer couldn’t catch it! Remember a German girl met with an accident 6 years ago – Yes – This is ‘it’ But she was alive when we admitted her in the hospital I think the doctor gave the wrong treatment Then she should hound the doctor! She found that doctor 3 months ago and killed him – Why did it come here now? – To thank It came to thank us?! After 6 years? Felt sad she couldn’t find the address ‘Height of nitpicking!’ I have a small doubt – What…? – How does the German spirit know Tamil? Wandering for 6 years won’t she learn Tamil? Did it say what the deal is? That…is a moot poin- Says if the teacher gets married, it will leave her body Okay, Singam With good intentions, tell the spirit I don’t mind marrying the teacher! She wants me to marry her! Did the spirit say that? Xavier, I got it – I also got it – ‘Tube light!’ – What next? – Let’s go Why should we go in circles for this? I know all about it, sister Only for your protection I’m patrolling with those cubs I like him a lot I like him too He’ll convince his father But when I think of our father- What am I for? Don’t worry I will manage Is she the one? Didn’t you inform him? What…? Okay Be patient No reaction whatsoever from him? Did you notice his name? – ‘Trouble-maker’ is prefix to his name – All the best! Let’s see how he takes the trouble to come out of this mess Father…? Broach the subject My son Vishnu stood in our borders and protected our country 4 years His mother died in an accident I told him with prompt ambulance service her life could’ve been saved He quit his job of protecting the country and came to serve his neighborhood Of course salary is less But his soul is satisfied If his satisfied soul goes to a shop and asks ‘give me 2 kilo rice’ will the shopkeeper give it for free? We have enough for our needs You know the plight of hoarders, right? All that cash was trashed! – Half of them went to jail – Father – Please – Okay Until now he must have saved 1000 lives Count is 1362, pa You heard, 1362 He’s giving all the statistics Can’t touch the troublemaker Strangers on the road will come up to him And thank him profusely for being alive There’s no limit to that happiness Until now 146 babies have been delivered in his ambulance If girl, the baby is named Vishnupriya If boy, baby will be named Vishnupriyan Will that name fetch rice? ‘He has an 1-track mind about rice and porridge!’ What to do? Ask him to lay it on thick Appa, spruce it up a bit He thinks others should not suffer because of him If a stranger is lying hurt on the road his heart will miss several beats If 2 people are in love he’ll be dying to unite them From A to Z father is singing his son’s praise Maybe he had it scripted He respects elders He treats a woman like divinity He will sacrifice his life for his friends What a dead pan expression!

Which route she’ll take and which second she’ll look back? Her likes and dislikes We will do a thorough research I also did Just because she is interested you’re rattling grandma’s dialogs! If someone disturbs the girl he’s in love with he’ll take all his friends, wage a war and prove his love is true But you girls in general won’t react to anything and stay put like a Drama Queen Makes no difference if he is dead or alive We should break our bones and keep following you Isn’t that right?

Kulavilakku, our district secretary Please leave Ravi, you carry on I’ll bring him – Alright – Please go Listen, the chap who sees us as his enemy is well connected To defeat him, this man is ideal Same party is encouraging 2 factions One becomes District Secretary and the other a minister We are ordinary people We need protection too Let’s go meet him Come in Heard you held a knife to his throat You’re the ideal match for him – Is he our caste? – Don’t know Which caste do you belong to? What is this, bro? You wanted to see me urgently to enquire about my caste? Caste is the main factor here You’ve made it so Only because of our voting system we are stuck with caste as a burden Brother In every caste, the majority reject caste system Only because they are silent worthless voices are heard loud That’s immaterial Our family has been in politics for 3 generations Pandiyanar joined the Party recently He was made the minister only because votes from his caste exceeded mine Caste decides the success or defeat of a politician Wrong, bro That is not true at all Votes of the educated people The first timer’s vote People who don’t like you Their votes Next generation has woken up Hereafter caste cannot play with politics Obsessed with the caste system you have made innocent people queue for freebies You made people beg in the streets You let go of everything You were in the wrong You took 100 or 500 as bribe to vote By the way, what is it we let go according to you?

You raised your hand at me Is it an arrogance born out of affluence? Why are you straining yourselves? This won’t be enough for him There’s something else Turn a deaf ear You’ve only seen our Hyde side? Haven’t seen our good side, right?
