Endrendrum Punnagai was the debut program of Rambutan Media Works which garnered almost 4 times the target and earned a TRP rating of 15% for a Sunday evening show and went on to season II. Endrenrum Punnagai was a 26 part entertaining variety concept that was a staple for both young and old audiences. Banter, light hearted conversations, latest songs, comedy scenes and participation of audiences “live” and online via new media, stringed together with a popular, talented and witty host were part of this winning formula called “Endendrum Punnagai”.
KONDAATTAM!Life is a celebration! In life we celebrate a lot of personal events, birthdays, wedding anniversaries, the passing of driving, good results, etc. We also celebrate events and festivals in groups! Sometimes we celebrate events that transcend different race and religions, e.g Christmas, National Day, New Year, etc. We celebrate them with our own traditions in our own homes. However, KONDAATTAM is going to unite all and have a massive celebration in their own homes with oneness!
Kondaattam is going to be a Vasantham celebration that is going to capture moments of joy, shed light into similar festivals around the world, share the unity of a Singaporean celebration, and in line with our food paradise distinction, share a totally Singaporean recipe and on top of that, infuse music that is exclusive for that festival.
Kondaattam is going to be an engaging,magazine styled programme with a stimulating and vibrant treatment, specially designed to capture the feel of the holiday festivities:- Hari Raya Haji, Christmas, New Year and Pongal. Kondaattam is a program that combinesentertaining features, reports, music spots etc. linked by a presenter.This will be a 4 part series of half hour duration per episode and will be different from the present formats of host links, footage and more host links.
Kondaattam is going to be the best combination of a travelogue, a cookery show, with a reality based live interviews of Singaporeans, variety and info-ed program with lots of laughter, banter and colour!
Music, Merriment and food complete any celebration and in line with that the program will also have a brief recipe and cooking session.

My personal favourite is Aasai. It is a realistic portrayal of marriages and the challenges that come with it. It's not your usual mother-in-law and daughter-in-law fiasco but more about husband and wife relationships. It's about money issues, it's about intimacy issues, it's about one's own desires. Its raw and in your face facts about marriages and relationship. It is about toxic marriages and about taken for granted relationships. The songs will play in your mind even after you have watched it. The scenes will resonate with you or the people you know.
