Plot[edit]

It is set in urban Chennai, this web series tells the story of four couples negotiating the many meanings of modern-day love. They are:- 1.Bala Kumar, a divorcee who shares the custody of his daughter Smriti. 2.Divya & Badri, a live-in couple, who completely oppose the fact of getting married. 3.Meera & Santhosh, a “married” couple, who absolutely hate each other. 4.Raghav & Tanvi, love birds, who are in the “process” of getting married

The web-series starts with Meera clashing her car and ruining Tanvi-Raghav’s Pre-pre-engagement party. Divya then tells Raghav to check on Meera, which is later discovered that Meera cheated on Santhosh by doing it with Raghav on her first night to take a revenge on him because he too cheated on her at his Bachelor’s party with a girl called Nii-vaa-suin in Bangkok. Badri hears their conversation and struggles to hide the truth. But he tells it to Divya alone. 
Meera then finds out the she is pregnant at Raghav & Tanvi’s Pre-engagement party. She throws the Pregnancy-kit in the dustbin that is later seen by Divya. Santhosh and his friend add alcohol in Divya & Badri’s juice. A drunk Divya & Badri blurt out the truth in front of everybody & even tell Divya’s dad that they don’t want to get married. 
Tanvi breaks up with Raghav. Divya tells Santhosh that she is pregnant with Santhosh’s baby only and they both get reunited. Divya’s dad strictly warns Badri to marry Divya. Bala Kumar gets extremely sad and upset because his ex-wife shifts with Smriti and her husband to Bangalore.

Production[edit]

Balaji Mohan initially planned As I'm Suffering from Kadhal as a feature film, but ultimately decided it was better made as a series, saying, "as I explored the concept further with parallel storylines falling into place, it didn't make sense to fit it into a two-hour film".[4]
