Natchiya says now Ganga has home with the Collector for a feast; the next feast they, Ganga will become a collector and both Collectors will come over here for a feast. The married couple are hppy to hear this praise. Ila, howver, wonders how Ganga can be collector now that she has married. Sk firmly says that so many people work after marriage and since Ganga took her IAS exam before her marriage, she can be a collector anytime she wants. Sk says confidently that Ganga will definitely become a collector. Ila looks away, a little embarrassed.
Ayya asks Ila to serve more food. Both collector and Ganga are full so they politely decline. Natchiya tells the collector and Ganga to leave their banana leaf plates there tells Ila to pick up their echa elai and clean up. Ila and her husband both share a pained look; they both feel insulted. Natchiya asks Ila what she is waiting for. Ila covers up saying that it looks like the they haven't eaten much even though the Collector was all praises for the food; Ganga says her husband only eats that much, Anni. Natchiya, Ganga and Sk leave. Ila cleans up, angrily muttering that she has been reduced to a echa-elai porukki cleaning maid state because of Ganga and that one day she will throw away Ganga just like her echai elai. Ila's husband sympathises with her and tells her both of them can only look and complain from now on- nothing they can do anymore. Ila leaves angrily.
Meanwhile, Sk and Ganga say bye to Natciya and leave for Aayakudi with Ayya. The next day, at Aayakudi, Collector tells Ayya that he and Ganga are leaving for home. Ayya says a few line about Ganga's greatness and Collector says he will look after Ganga very well. Ganga meanwhile is saying goodbye to Charu and her mom. Charu also gives a big build up about how Ganga will always be in their thoughts, blah blah blah. Ganga says she is so sad to leave them behind and go and tells Charu and her mom that they will always in her thoughts. Ganga tells Charu that she will always be there for her family; Ganga gets a little emotional and sheds a few tears. Her mom consoles her a bit. JC comes over and tells them he's going to get the car ready. Ganga tells JC to look after her family andhe agrees. He tells her to take care and to call often.
Ayya and Sk are talking. Ayya says that Sk has not asked him for anything and Sk; then he compels that SK accepts the gift he is giving for Ganga; Ayya says that he's giving away part of his wealth for Ganga and tells Sk not to say no to his gift. Sk tells him to do as he wishes. Ayya gives Sk a document giving Ganga 10acres of his land. After a long goodbye scene, Ganga and Sk return home. Sk's dad welcomes them and asks Ganga and him how the trip was. Both of them reply happily about the trip.
Karpagam makes an entrance and says snidely that Sk has happily forgotten his parents in 2 days; no phone call or anything. She asks him if he was just planning on staying there only. Sk says he only had 2 days leave sanctioned and had to come back for work; otherwise, he would happily stay there for much longer. Karpagam is annoyed and tells bitterly that he has given up his long-standing relations with his parents because of his new relations with Ayya and his family. "Naanga ellam pazhasu (old stuff); avanga thane puthusu!"
Sk says it's not like that; he says over there he is not treated as a collector. Sk's dad asks what he means. Ganga says Sk farmed in her dad's land and talks about how handsome he looked in the farmer attire. Then Sk says Ganga too looked superb when she was naathu nattu-fying in the rice fields. Karpagam snidely tells Sk that she and his dad have raised him up to be a Collector but his wife just turned him into a farmer. She tells Sk to send a picture of his farming skills to the newspaper and see what everyone says about it. Sk's dad tells Karpagam not to be so status-conscious; he tells Karpagam that even her own dad was a farmer so she shouldn't talk bad about farmers.
Sk's dad then asks Sk what Ayya said. Sk says Ayya asked about them all and treated him really well. He said that everyday, they had feasts. Karpagam asks, "Ayya only gave you feasts, nothing else?" Sk says Ayya gave Ganga 10 acres of land and said that even though he sais no, Ayya insisted and gave him the document. Karpgam is infuriated. She asks Sk why he accepted that and tells him to go give back the document to Ayya. Ganga looks up at her athai shocked.
Sk's dad tells KArpagam that there is nothing wrong in what Ayya did; Ganga is his darling daughter so he can gve even 100acre in her name. Karpgam says Ayya will give even 1000 acres to Ganga but right after that, Ilavanji will come here and say that she is not willing to give up even a little bit of Ayya's wealth. Then, Karthik and Sara will show up and make a fuss. And then Kulasekaran will show up with aruval and knives ready ti start a fight. Karpagam says only we will have to answer all to all of these people. Sk's dad says that Ayya will look after that. Ganga speaks up and says that her dad will make sre nothing like that happens. Karpagam says Ayya won't be able to do anything; so far, so many problems have happened and Ayya was unable to solve them himself. Ganga looks away, upset and Sk is a little annoyed.
Sk's dad tells Karpagam that returning the gift will be insulting to Ayya. Ganga says that her athai is a very good person because unlike most other mother-in-laws, she doesn't care about the wealth of her daughter-in-law. Ganga says that however, she cannot refuse a gift that her dad has given for her and asks her athai to please reconsider. Karpagam says she doesn't care. Sk's dad asks her to be a little patient ad says that they should discuss this with Ayya. Sk agrees with his dad. KArpagam tells that they are all talk and no action; only she has to deal with all the consequences. Karpagam then tells off Ganga; she says to Ganga that she doesn't care even a tiny bit about Ganga or Ayya's wealth or how much jewels or anything they gave her. She doesn't want any of Ganga's wealth; all she asks for is that Ganga just leave them in peace and not cause un-necessary trouble with her actions. Karpagam leaves angrily and Ganga is upset. Sk pats her on the soulder comfortingly.
Last scene – super funny!-
Ila is sitting in front of a big banana leaf filled with food. Around her are JC, Charu and Subbu. Ila is very uncomfortable and asks them why they called only her here and why they are giving her a big feast. They all tell her to eat first. Ila tries to leave but JC pulls her down and makes her sit. Subbs serves sambar and Ila slowly mixes the food thinking to herself why they were being so nice to her when she has done nothing nice for them. Charu asks her why she is mixing the food so slowly and happily mixes the food properly and feeds Ila a big mouthful.
Ila chews the food very confused because she thinks they are being too nice to someone who has done lots of bad things to them. Charu asks her what she is thinking about; Charu says that Subbu had made all this food just for Ila and tells Ila to eat happily. Ila says that there is so much good food here but none of them are eating it and they are just giving it all to her. So, she is a bit confued and doubtful, she says. JC tells her to stop talking nonsense and eat the food. And then, he stuffs a vadai into her mouth. Charu then forcefully feeds one more mouthful of food. Ila has no choice but to eat everything they give!!!
Subbu encourages them by saying, "Here give this! Take that!" Soon, the whole plate is empty! After the food, Ila is given a gold necklace and a brand new silk saree. Ila asks again why they are doing all of this. Subbu tells her that even if she is angry with their family, she stepped up in the end to help bring Ganga home along with Natchiya and then helped cook a feast for Ganga and Sk. Subbu says that they are all very thankful to her and both Ayya and Ganga wanted to thank her. But a simple thanks is not enough so that's why they gave her this feast. Charu says that since Ila also blessed Ganga and Sk, both of them will surely be happy. Ila thinks to herself that she only did all of that because Ayya and Natchiya compelled her and not because she wanted Ganga to be happy... Thodarum
