Well, the way I analyzed படித்துவிட்டீர்களா is:
படித்துவிட்டீர்களா < படித்து + விட்டீர்களா < படி + த்து + விடு + ட்ட + ஈர்கள் + ஆ
= verb root "study" + present participle suffix + verb root "release, let go" + past tense suffix + 2nd polite singular PNG suffix + interrogative suffix
So, I saw படி as the second verb made into a present participle and then affixed as a prefix to the main verb விடு. But it seems like my analysis is wrong?
At 0:27: [jɛnˈde kəˈjiːn̪n̪ɯ ʋiˈɖɯ]...[jɛnˈde kəˈjiːn̪n̪ɯ ʋiˈɖaːnaː pəˈrəɲəd̪ɯ]! 'Let go of my hand...I said let go of my hand!'.
Interestingly enough, what you hear or wrote as schwa I heard more as [ɛ].
Which schwa in which word?
Right, I should've been more specific. I heard [kəˈjiːn̪n̪ɯ] more as [kɛˈjiːn̪n̪ɯ] both times and even [pəˈrəɲəd̪ɯ] sounded a little bit more like [pɛˈrəɲəd̪ɯ].

I realized it was a set expression, which was why I wasn't sure where to put the accusative suffix. So, I guess for set expressions that end in a numeral, case suffixes aren't attached? What about sentences where the set expression (or noun phrase) isn't in the accusative case? For example, say the sentence, "What were your answers for lesson 11?" Based on what you wrote, I would say something like உங்கது வினாகளை பாடம் பதினொன்று என்ன? But otherwise, I would think to add the dative suffix to பாடம் பதினொன்று.
