Ila visits Valli's house. She introduces herself to Valli as Jc's sister and talks very sweetly to everyone. Valli's family is very happy to see their future son-in-law's sister. Valli's mom says she'll prepare some food and drinks but Ila says no need all that, since she only came to visit Valli. Ila praises Valli's beauty and puts flowers in her hair. She also gives Valli a sari saying JC put a lot of effort to get that gift for her. Ila tells Valli to wear that sari in front of JC and she says JC will be stunned - JC asanthu poyiduvaan. Valli says ok and Valli's parents watch all this happily.
Valli's mom comments about how Kula and Kula's daughter seems to be very nice. But Valli's mom also says that she feels a little disappointed that Kula's wife, Muthu, didn't come and visit them for any wedding preparations. Ila tells them not to worry about Muthu; she tells them that Muthu really likes Valli a lot especially because Valli saved Ayya's life. Ila says that her mom will give them a surprise visit one day for sure. Valli's mom hopes so too. Ila very sweetly then says goodbye and leaves. Valli looks delightedly at the sari (red sari with a moss green border) and thinks that it looks beautiful.
Meanwhile, in Ayakudi, Rema comes to Charu and gives her a couple of mangos from their garden. Charu tells Rema not to call it their garden. Charu angrily talks about how they have no claims to the gardens or the house or even any of their belongings other than the clothes they wear. Subbu walks by and listens to the conversation. Charu says that Kula will soon control all the wealth and they will have nothing. Rema tells her that they will not be left with nothing; she lists that they have so many family members they have (appa, amma, periamma, Sara-annan, Ganga-akka...) and they surely will not be left with nothing. Rema then advices her to look on the bright side and talks about how Sara changed his mind about them and now treats them so well.
Rema says that they should be so happy and proud that Sara came to split the wealth and properties with them. Charu replies that even if Sara wants to give them something, Karthik will make sure they don't get it. Subbu walks in then and talks to Charu; she tells Charu not to worry about money.
Suubu says nobody can take Ayya away from them and since they are his family, he will look after their financial needs.
Charu tells Suubu to stop giving excuses. Subbu replies by saying Charu is too young to understand and assures her that the elders of the household will always support them financially. Subbu then tells Charu and Rema to focus on their studies, get good grades and settle down with a good job/family like Ganga did. After that, Subbu brings the two girls with her to eat lunch.
Next day, Jc is driving Valli to her college. Valli is wearing the red sari Ila gave her. Valli and JC exchange looks and smiles throughout the ride but don't talk. Once they reach her college, JC says goodbye and tells her he'll pick her up in the evening. Valli tells him that he doesn't need to come get her in the evening. Valli says that she feels bad that she is treating him like a driver and tells him she will call him if she wants to speak with him.
Then, Valli asks if they can talk right now. Valli asks JC if there is anything different about her today.
JC looks at her and tells her she looks the same. Valli holds the sari mundanai in one hand and walks like a model, spinning around and showing off her sari. JC starts laughing loudly. Valli gets upset and asks him why he is laughing at her. JC teases her by asking her if there is some fashion show in college today; he tells her she catwalks exactly like a model. Valli tells him to stop making fun of her and asks him if the sari looks good on her and if he likes it.
JC asks her what she means by that. Valli thinks JC is still joking. Valli thinks to herself,"I thought he will say something about the sari in the car but he didn't. I ask him outright and he still doesn't get it. Who is he trying to kid?"
JC sees her silently looking at him and tells her to answer the question later because he needs to leave. Valli tells him to wait. Valli asks him why he is pretending like he knows nothing. She tells him that he got her this sari so that's why she asked him how it looked.
JC is shocked to hear this.
JC asks Valli,"I got you a sari? Since when? Are you joking?"
Valli tells Jc," You are the one who is joking around with me."
JC gets a little annoyed.
JC says,"Why would I do that? What kind of relationship do you think we both have?"
Valli replies,"Ask your sister Ilavanji that question."
JC is confused now.
JC asks Valli,"What do mean? What about Ilavanji?"
Valli says,"You got this sari for me, gave it to Ila and told her to give it to me. So, in case you forgot, you can ask her."
JC realizes that Ila is the person behind all of this confusion. As he is thinking silently about this, Valli asks him why he is so silent. JC says that he didn't know Ilavanji visited her house and gave her a sari. Valli says Ila must have wanted to surprise them both. Then, Valli again asks if the sari looks good on her. JC tells her that she looks really nice in that sari. Valli tells him that Ila said the same thing.
Valli adds that Ila told her that JC would be stunned to see her in the sari. Valli jokingly asks him if he is stunned. JC says he is exceptionally stunned (JC thinks to himself that he is exceptionally stunned by his sister's actions.) JC quickly says his goodbyes after that. As Valli leaves, JC realizes Ila is up to some golmaal. JC leaves, thinking angrily about Ila.
Meanwhile, Vetri is walking to his house. He sees the house locked up and gets the key from his neighbour. He goes inside and starts looking for money. (first the saami undiyal and then his mom's purse and then everywhere else) Vetri gets very frustrated as he is searching because there is no money anywhere.
Vetri's mom walks in as he is looking through some boxes. Vetri's mom asks Vetri what he is searching for. Vetri angrily snaps that he is looking for money, what else. Vetri's mom tells him she doesn't have much cash with her right now. Vetri looks more annoyed. Vetri's mom asks how much money he needs and he sarcastically asks her to give him 2 rupees. Vetri's mom takes out a 5 rupee coin and gives him. Vetri yells at his mom and gives her the coin back. He says he needs 2000 rupees not 5 rupees. Vetri's mom is shocked and asks him if 100-200 rupees is ok.
Vetri says that he needs the money to buy proper body-building food to train for the match. He says that all the kabadi players playing in the finals will be training hard right now. He tells his mom that the idli-dosa she makes alone is not enough to sustain his work-outs. He demands that his mom gets the money somehow. Vetri tells his mom that he has to win this match to get a government job like she wants. Vetri leaves the house and his mom wonders unhappily where to go to get 2000 rupees.
Vetri's mom sees the pots and pans hanging in the kitchen and decides to sell those to get money. She sadly packs all the big pots and pans into a sack and carries it down the streets. Rema is parking her cycle at a nearby street corner. When Vetri's mom turns into the street, a cyclist knocks her down. Vetri's mom falls down and all the pots and pans fly out of the sack. Vetri's mom starts crying in pain and yells at the cyclist for driving so carelessly.
Rema notices the accident and runs to help the old lady while the cyclist cycles away. Rema helps Vetri's mum up and picks up all the pots and pans. Rema asks what she is doing with all this heavy things by herself. Vetri's mom dejectedly talks about how she is going to sell all of those pots and pans to get money for her son. Vetri's mom says Vetri wants to eat good food like fish and eggs to build up his body for the match. She also talks about how those kitchenware were given to her by her parents and she too was planning to gift them to her future daughter-in-law but now she has to sell it off. Rema feels bad when she hears the lady's misfortunes.
Rema offers to give the 2000 rupees herself. Vetri's mom says that her son will be very angry if he hears this. But Rema manages to convince her. Rema runs over to grab her purse and takes out 2000 rupees. Rema gives Vetri's mom the money and says she doesn't need to return it till after Vetri gets a job. Rema tries to carry allt he stuff and walk Vetri's mom home. However, Vetri's mom says Rema has done enough as it as and thanks Rema before leaving. Rema watches Vetri's mom sadly.
Vetri seems like a total spoilt brat. The way he angrily yelled at his mom made me so
... And as for Rema, i cannot believe she was just walking around by herself with more than 2000 rupees in her purse?!!!! And she even left her purse with all the money on the cycle when she went to help Vetri's mom!!!?! That is so unbelivable...
