Re: travelling from chennai to pondicherry, via mama by bus+car/driver
Ofcourse you can cover D/Chitra, and five rathas and reach Pondi on the same day but it depends on how much time you will take at each place.
Example it takes about one hour to go aroumd D/chitra. You need to go round D/chitra only on foot.Location of five rathas is very far from D/chitra. So you need to take a bus ( there is a hopon -hop off bus service too)from Chennai to D/chitra whch is on the way to Mamallapuram. There are lots of buses at frequent intervals from Mamallapuram to Pondicherry.Even if on bus is full, you can wait for another which you will get in 10-15mnts time( so don't worry bout that).
A direct bus from Chennai to Pondi ia about 45 rupees. May be a bit more if you break your journey at above two places.
When you stay in Chennai, you can negotiate with a taxi/car driver about the charges to Madurai. Why don't you take a train?
