Cinemakshari!

Update: Clues added for the movie names!

One of the more popular group games is Anthakshari, in which teams sing songs starting off with the last letter of the song sung by the opposing team. Here’s a game based on a similar concept.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to complete the chain of 10 Tamil movie names below. Starting with the second film name, the first word of each film’s name is some form of the last word of the name of the film above it (so, if a movie’s name ends in kaadhal, the next movie’s name could start with kaadhal, kaadhalan, kaadhali, kaadhale, kaadhalikka, kaadhalukku… you get the idea!). The first word of the first movie name and the last word of the last movie name have been filled in to kick things off.

Please do not post answers as comments so as not to spoil the fun for others. Solutions can be emailed to bbalaji [@] sbcglobal [dot] net. Partial solutions are welcome too. If they prove that the game has turned out to be too tough (though I don’t think so considering some of the cine geeks who have commented so far!), I will post clues to the movie names tomorrow…

Let the game begin!

It took around 30-45 minutes to solve. It was interesting. I'm sure this one has multiple solutions.
