Does that mean Ulundurpet > Vriddhachalam is the only viable route? How is the road condition between Thindivanam - Chidambaram? If that is good, then I could do drive the usual Pondicherry route via Arcot to Thindivanam and then do Panruti > Chidambaram > V Kovil

Yes, Infact from kumbakonam i drove to chennai by the following route

Via Anaikarai, Jayamkondan, Vriddhachalam, Ulundurpet and then the GST. Near Vriddhachalam level crossing some bridge construction is going on. There we have mud road. Apart from this the rest of the tarmac is good. I drove in the night and did not face any hurdles.
I left Kumbakonam at 5:40 PM and reached chennai by 11:30 PM
