Fav scene in Alai Payuthey

Appears very early in the movie...essentially the scene in which the hero and heroine first see each other after meeting for the first time at a marriage...

The setting is a local Chennai electric train crossing, and Karthik and Shakti are on two opposite trains, but standing near the edge of an entrance of their respective coaches such that they face each other...the instant their eyes meet, the camera moves into slow motion, the thud-thud of the train also moves into slow motion very beautifully, and the song sung at their first meeting slowly plays in the background...they slowly pass each other...Karthik is surprised that they meet again and appears amused, while Shakti is close to expressionless, she shows a hint of recognition but is not sure whether to smile or not...

The run-up to the register marriage between the two, the marriage at the temple, and the scenes just after that run a close second for the best scene...

But the most impactful scene must be the one just at the end of Evano Oruvan when they realise how hopelessly in they were love with each other...
