October is perfect timing to go on a trip.
Temperatures will cool down and hill-stations turn lush green. 

Did you visit Chikmagalur?

If you are planning from Pune,
You can consider, Munnar and Kerala backwaters.

Cut off Kanyakumari from this list covering Mahabalipuram - Pondy - Dhanushkodi and back, I am sure that will cut down some distance!

Round trip will be 2500KM ... if we go Kanyakumari and round trip will come 2850...just 350 is the difference..

 

What will be best plan for this... any reviews on this road trip. what are the places we can cover other than you mentioned here.

 

Thanks in Advance.

Hyderabad - Pondicherry - Pichavaram and Mahabalipuram if possible could be your best bet if you are thinking on limiting your travel..

October is the best time to visit hills. 

Since you have covered all the hill stations in South India. 
Only option left out is the coastal drive.

There is no point in missing Kanyakumari. 

Southern tip of India should be covered.

Roads are good, most of them are 4-lane sections, there are few single lane sections but the roads are pretty decent. 
While coming back you can plan Via Bangalore.

You can cut down Kanyakumari, don't miss Dhanushkodi/Rameshwaram. 
Newly laid Dhanushkodi road is fantastic. Beach on both sides of the road.

In my opinion, There is nothing much in Chennai to visit. 

 

If you want to skip Kanyakumari, you can consider adding Kodaikanal to the list. 
In this way you get chance to visit a hill station along with beaches.
