We did Punalur - Bangalore taking this route. Road is very bad after the Kerala border @ Aryankavu right almost upto Thirumangalam. Many potholes and road surface seems to have peeled off giving a very rough ride. Not sure if this because of the recent heavy rains

Just did this route - NH 744. Its great all the way. No rough patches anywhere.
The ride gets a little bouncy between Tirumangalam and Rajapalayam. Else its a song till Tenkasi and beyond (Shekottai - tenmala - Punalur)
Kuttalam roads are also good.

I am planning a road trip next month that'll take me to Rameshwaram, from Rameshwaram I am planning to drive to Alappuzha.

Options from Rameshwaram to reach Alappuzha appear to be (a) Via Madurai-Kumily or (b) via Kovilpatti, then Shenkottai, Punalur.

Second choice reduces the distance by some 30 kms but I am not sure of the condition of the road here as it doesn't appear to be a major road like 744 passing through Madurai.

Any suggestions from members who've done this trip recently?
Thanks

Beautiful roads. No issues at all. Very few stretches (<200 mtrs) on the ghat section to tenmala have small potholes. otherwise a good road.
