Hi Pravin,
The red-flowering shrub is an Ochna sp. [possibly
O.integerrima],also called the Mickey Mouse Plant.
Regards,
Neil.

It is Turnera ulmifolia (Fam. Turneraceae).   It is a wild plant (a herbaceous weed) , but sometimes cultivated.  Whenever it rains in Chennai the plants come up and flower, especially in cleared areas.

Thanks, Sneha ji.
 
Cerbera odollam, commonly known as the Suicide tree, Pong-pong, and Othalanga, is a species of tree native to India and other parts of Southern Asia. It grows preferentially in coastal salt swamps and in marshy areas. It grows wild along the coast in many parts of Kerala, India and has been grown as a hedge between home compounds. It's a potent killer, often used for both suicide and murder.

The fruit, when still green, looks like a small mango, with a green fibrous shell enclosing an ovoid kernel measuring approximately 2 cm × 1.5 cm and consisting of two cross-matching white fleshy halves. On exposure to air, the white kernel turns violet, then dark grey, and ultimately brown or black. The plant as a whole yields a milky white latex.

Cerbera odollam tree is known by a number of vernacular names depending on the region. These are: othalanga maram in the Malayalam language used in Kerala, India; kattu arali in the adjacent state of Tamil Nadu; famentana, kisopo, samanta or tangena in Madagascar; and pong-pong, buta-buta or nyan in southeast Asia.[1]
