Because I told them you were going to get me a job there long ago, and when you weren't able to, I couldn't say that to them without losing face. So I kept up the fiction, and in order to show that I had an income, I used my father-in-law's money. When he asked for it, I took money from dad (Miuthukumar) to return it, but that money got stolen...Uma, who doesn't know any of this, is taken aback, but Muthukumar quickly steps in and says this is all not true. She doesn't make a big deal of it, and asks Mohini to go home. Ranga and Kala are talking in the office. Everyone has left. Ranga says she is hurt by Uma's words about her conspiring with Chitra. Kala tries to calm her down, says why don't you go spend some time with Badri (?) and gives her a meaning look. Ranga says he himself has abandoned me, why should I go there?

Scene opens with new Vijay (Uma's son) (in place of the old actor, who is currently held by police in the Vaishnavi suicide case - Ed.) looking over the newspaper. He sees the news about Chitra being projected as the next MD, and wants to make sure his mother doesn't see the paper when she heads to the office. But Mohini arrives, and makes him show the paper. Their father Muthukumar also eggs Uma on to make a stink. Vijay advises against it, saying friendship is more important, and she should keep things in perspective, because it was Ranga who started the company, gave Uma ajob, etc. But it falls on deaf ears. When Uma reaches office, she finds Ranganayaki yelling and screaming at Chitra for giving all kinds of nonsense to the newspaper. Uma claims this is all a farce, that Ranganayaki, after earlier rejecting Uma's plea to induct Mohini into Kadambam, saying no relatives, brought in her own daughter in law, for solving some domestic problems. This must have been her plan all along. Enter Badri, who says the entire staff is protesting this appointment of Chitra. Badri says Ranga should go and address the staff. The staff are saying that they want Ranga to continue as MD, if Chitra is appointed, they will all quit. Instead of the simple solution, which is to say that the news is false, the Tamil serial way of handling it is for Ranganayaki to say that the staff should all disperse, otherwise she will quit coming to work from tomorrow. Going back inside, there is a big argument with Uma, and Ranga starts to say Uma is blowing things out of proportion, and that she too knows about Uma and Muthukumar's conspiracies, etc. But Kala, who is also present, cuts her short, and prescribes a solution. Suspend Chitra for a month immediately, she says. Chitra says if you do that I'll go to court. Everyone shocked. Badri says Chitra, I need to talk to you alone.

But when they see her, Gounder's family is cold. Are all the problems we've had with Pandi (Valli's husband) not enough? they ask. Gounder is adamant. I could not leave a defenseless woman stranded in the street, he says.

Ani is rushed to hospital. Tolkappiyan phones Usha, and discovers she is at the hospital with Anu. Mano and friends find Anu has not turned up. They find out she has been admitted to hospital, and go there. Aditya spots them.

He is staying in the same hotel. Later, Andavan and Karthan are relaxing in Andavan's guest house. Amar brings Puja and drags her upstairs. She resists. He succeeds in locking her upstairs, but her chain falls on the floor. Dileepan, whom Andavan has invited to stay in the guest house, comes over. He declines to stay, citing that he has an old friend he always stays with in Singapore. Andavan reluctantly agrees. But as Dileepan gets up, he steps on the Puja's chain. He picks it up and examines it. Andavan and Karthan are shocked.

At Senthils house, his father attempts an experiment. He has his wife call Mohini's mother's number. He tracks Mohini in another room, pretending to talk like UMA. His suspicions are confirmed. He tells his wife, who says, don't say anything. I need to go to the bank and see how much money is left, because I left all the money in Mohini's charge, he says. Even if you find something missing, let us not antagonize her, says his wife.
Big news conference following Kadambam's choice by the foreign company (sounds like Wal-Mart, but it could be Wal-Mark). Ranga shares all credit with Uma and Kala.

Abhirami comes to meet Sreenivasan. She says she got a call from the Police Commissioner. The promoters had complained, and they had called me for an inquiry. Says it is my fault for having trusted you. Sreenivasan is indignant, but politely. He says we did this to scuttle Shanti. Who expected your brother to ruin everything? She says that's not important, why not talk about what to do now. He says but for the fact he is your brother, I would have broken his bones. Maha disagreement.

Father apologizes on her behalf again. Her father guardedly tells Gounder her mind has been poisoned. He says to Gounder that the solution would be to set up Malliga and her husband in a separate establishment. Gounder is shaken, but hears him out.
Shanmugam's wife is talking to her aunt (stepmother?) about getting Shanmugam married to another girl, because she doesn't herself have children. Chalk up one more for SunTV's bigamy campaign. Her aunt says she can suggest a girl.
At Valli's house, her husband is drinking. She talks to her husband about her brother in law being in jail, about his wayward ways. He gets mad and begins to beat her, and when the children protest, them also.

Police inspector says not to go directly to Abi Construction, after Upendra escapes, dropping the Abi Construction cover. Instead, watch their staff, including Tolkappiyan, secretly.

Mano drives up to a spot under the bridge, where Anu has asked him to come immediately. He talks about the registrar's office, asks her not to worry. She says, "Let's not get married". She says she has thought it over. If we marry, neither of our families will be happy. Kanchana will be devastated, and if something happens to her, my family will be ruined.
He says she is like all rich girls. I am giving up my entire family for our love, he says. He runs towards the nearby rail track. She follow him along the tracks. He lies down on the tracks. She tries to move him. Then she wakes up. It was a dream. She remembers her grandmother's words. And she remembers Mano. She is torn. She resolves her dilemma by taking a cold shower, with clothes on. The inner meaning of all this is not clear. Late night, Mano has not yet come home. Mother says we need to call Abhi. Her two other daughters try to dissuade her, to stop a while. Abhi is reading some office papers when the phone rings. It is her mother, weeping. Mother tells all. Abhi shocked.

Shanti is talking to Tolkapiyan. He says Bhasker is working in our office. She says this is what I thought would happen. Abhi is forgetting all the old stuff, she says. He says Abhi is inviting problems. She says Bhasker may have changed. He says nonsense, he would not change. Why do you get in the middle, Shanti says. Didn't Abhi consult you? says Shanti. He says, let me call Abhi and clarify. The phone rings. It is Abhi. She says what her mother said. He reveals he knows what happened. He says Manohar was not ready to listen. He says I tried. But, he says, Mano respects you. I didn't think he was going to run away from home. She says she is rushing to Madras. He says I''ll handle Mano's affair, please handle things there. He says ok. Look after everyone in my home, she says. He assures her. She says Adi will go to any extent.

Andavan and Amar show Tamarai a signed stamp paper and letter left behind in the hospital room, but Puja had disappeared. The letter says I loved someone and had the child through him. You find someone you love and live with her. I am going off with this lover. Amar cries buckets. Says Puja's lover must be the one who introduced her to drugs. Tamarai is of course overcome with tears. She says Puja has surpassed GJ in shamelessness. Amar says let no one know about this. Then Amar faints. Andavan creates some glorious drama, drawing maximum sympathy from Tamarai.

GJ is sitting with Govindan. Govindan, who is taunting him gently about what he was and what he has become. He says a wife should never be a boss, referring to Selvi's business. He says, don't let this progress. Selvi comes down the stairs. Govind leaves. She tells him about her selection for interview in Singapore. They have sent two air tickets. Will you come? GJ says no. Finally he says I have cases pending against me, they won't give me a visa. He is firm. He also dissuades her. Mother says she will come, forget calling him. He says I am telling even Selvi not to go. Who will look after the baby, says GJ. We'll take the baby along, she says. Selvi is conflicted. Mother is clear. We will go. Don't you worry. Govind is listening to everything standing outside.

At Andavan's place, Dileepan is visiting. I hear you are going to Singapore, says Andavan. Dileepan says there is a mobile conference. We should all go, says Andavan. Dileepan tries to dissuade him. But Andavan says I will be there to receive you. Dileepan has no choice but to accept. Andavan and Amar are discussing afterwards. Says we need to watch Dileepan. Amar says there are a million things to do here, including Puja. We should take Puja along to Singapore by getting a doctor's certificate, says Andavan. In this battle against Selvi, I am going to sacrifice my daughter in law, he says.

Puja has been bound hand and foot, listens to this conversation.

Karthik discovers the old photograph. Wonders who the child is. Takes the jewelry and the photo. Chitra is waiting outside. Karthik asks if Chitra knows anything about this photo. She is not intereseted, now that she has the jewelry. Karthik goes to Ranga's room. Asks Ranga who the child in the photo is. Why have you hidden it? Bharani, Chitra and Karthik demand. Ranga is weeping. Deepa watches. Grandfather says the child is dead. Swati wants to know also. Bharani says, let us find out. Deepa consoles her. But also asks Ranga who the baby is. Why, it is not unusual for babies to die, Deepa soothes her. Ranga says the child did not die. I gave it up. She reveals that it was a illegitimate child, and her father has persuaded her to give it up. Flashback: Father says he will allow her to look up the picture once a year. If the photo is not to be destroyed, you must listen to me, says ther father. I'll listen to anything you say, says Ranga. Each year, on the day the child died, I'll show you this photo, he says. Back to the present. Deepa says, think of me as the child you had to give up. Don't cry.

Senthil is very happy. Thanks father for apologizing to Mohini. She too is very happy. They are leaving for work. Father in law is still suspicious. After Mohini and husband leave, he tells his wife Mohini is cheating them, still lying. She asks why? He has a piece of paper with him. It is Mohini's phone bill, for the phone she has claimed is her mother's. It is actually in Mohini's name.

Deepa tries to inquire from Kala about Ranga's lost child. Kala insists it is a female, which leads Deepa to believe it is male. THen she asks how many children Kala has. One, Akash, he's in America, says Kala. Deepa can see she's hiding something.

May 24

Aditya is all upset about Anu's tantrum. Kishore is her future husband and my friend, how can she treat him like this? He storms to her room to scold her, but meanwhile, Kishore comes back, with 10 Buddha figures to replace the one he accidentally broke. She is embarrassed to be in this spot, in front of her mother, grandmother, brother, etc. In Mano's house, Mano's boss arrives and asks for Mano. When told he is not home, he says Mano had asked for 10000 rupees as his mother was sick. His sister is shocked but does not reveal it to the boss. After he leaves, sister and mother worry about what is going on. Anu is lying awake still trying to piece together the Buddha statue that broke. Her grandmother softly enters the room, and tells her she knows of her involvement with Mano, and says she should forget him, because there is a lot at stake, particularly family harmony. She seems convinced.
Upendra is leaving with his passport, etc., when he runs smack into a police barrier, where the cops are holding up a station wagon containings thugs hunting for Upendra! When the cops see Upendra, they forget about the station wagon and chase him. He has escaped, but dropped an envelope with Abi Constructions name on it...

Puja escapes from the hospital and finds herself in some kind of a deserted orchard (funny how they can find deserted hospitals, orchards, etc. in the middle of Madras, but this is serial-land, remember). An impassioned chase as Amar spots her, then drags her by her hair (Duhshasana is never far away) to his father's place. There, a mini-drama is staged, where the Andavan pleads for him not to harm her, he shoves Andavan aside and yells at him, all of which gives Puja the impression that Andavan is on her side. Then he says he will let them both go only if Puja signs some papers (not clear what they are). Andavan persuades Puja to do so, and once she has done so, father and son exchange high-fives, revealing to Puja the depth of the old man's perfidy. She is horrified. Andavan's acting is real, as is Amar's. Excellent stuff. Leaving her behind with Karthan as a guard, they go to the office to meet Tamarai, and tell her about her drug habit and show her these papers (presumably some kind of confession).

Deepa is in Manohar's house. Sivadhanu turns and greets her. It is revealed that he is working on her behalf, because he has seen how Manohar has ruined her family. He says Manohar's mother was a good woman who was killed by his father's activities and son's character flaws. Sivadhanu was devoted to her as a servant, and still sought her forgiveness for what he was doing to Manohar. Deepa is determined that he should be driven mad, a goal Sivadhanu endorses, for all the rotten things he has done. She gives him the photo of another friend of Manohar, Ravindran, who was also involved in her molestation. Sivadhanu asks how her sister was, and Deepa replies that she was no longer living, and adds that because of her, her sister had died.
Solaiappan brings another cab company guy to his office, and briefs him on what should be done. They go to Bharani, and the other guy says he immediately needs eight cabs for long term contracts. Solaiappan asks Bharani for a cut, and Bharani readily agrees.
At Ranga's home, Chitra has induced Karthik to rob grandfather's bureau to abstract the jewelry. Just a bet to test his daring, she says. Deepa observes some hanky panky. Meanwhile, Karthik, after many tries, opens the bureau, and after stashing away some bundles of currency for his own use, finds an old photograph of Ranga with an infant child, the same one her father fished out to show her on that fateful anniversary a few episodes back...

Amar gives a cock-and-bull story to Tamarai about Puja being a drug addict; she swallows it without question. He has injected some drug into her, and the doctor also confirms it is there. Tamarai observes that Puja never had this habit, but is convinced and upset. Puja is unable to say anything. After Tamarai leaves, Amar gives her another shot. Then he goes home to tell his father of all the problems. His father says he was wrong to leave Puja alone. Go and get her back to the house, and we can control her, he says. Ranjini comes to see Tamarai, and learns of what has happened. She realizes this is Amar's doing, and is remorseful of where her own hates have led her sister. Amar goes back to the hospital, to find that the patient has left the room. He conducts an energetic search of the hospital, which seems totally empty (!).

Ranga tells Manohar that Deepa is blind, and that she has known her for more than 15 years. Then she lets Deepa know she will never betray her secret, and also that she will not force it out of her, she can tell her in her own time, when she feels comfortable. Deepa is walking towards some house. She takes a long detour. Kailas sees her and follows at a distance. But he is caught by Poogandi and detained, and loses Deepa's trail. Finally she is shown entering Manohar's house, and approaching Sivadhanu the servant, who is facing away.
Bharani's wife Chitra tells him she will engage someone to rob grandpa's almirah to grab a piece of jewelry, which would pay off their debts.

News Flash: Suicide Spree
Just heard that the actress who acts as Puja in Selvi committed suicided. Also, Shraddha Vishwanath, who acts in Kolangal, committed suicide a few days back. This comes a month after Vaishnavi (Neelaveni in Manaivi, also now in Malargal) also committed suicide. In Vaishnavi's case, the screen plot spilled over into reality.

Whole episode devoted to Amar and Puja.
They are at a shopping mall, when Puja's abductor blackmails Amar, via his cell phone. Pay up now or I expose you to your wife. Meet me at the parking lot in the basement. Amar goes there, and pays up. Then he goes up. Meanwhile, Puja, looking for Amar, comes down to the basement. She sees the abductor, corners him, and asks him to tell her the truth, or else, she says, my husband will kill you. He pleads that the truth will only hurt her. She finally grabs a steel bar and chokes him, threatening to kill him herself if he doesn't tell her. He does. She doesn't believe him. Well, I can make him say it for you, says the abductor. Sure enough, Amar comes down, and the abductor asks him for more money. In the ensuing argument, Amar himself reveals everything about his role in the abduction and rape. Puja is listening behind another post. She shows herself, slaps Amar left and right. Amar overpowers her, and takes her to some dingy room where he locks her up. She lunges at him, but he has a syringe ready, pokes her in the stomach. He says he doesn't care about the baby, which would have been hurt by the injection in the stomach. It was just something he had intended for her arm. Anyway, she is in deep sleep next, and in a hospital. Amar calls Tamarai, saying Puja fainted. Pretends to be much upset. Tamarai comes, Puja opens her eyes...

At the function, Manohar gets all confused, and in the middle of Swati's song, overcome by memories of Anjali singing the same song at his college function, runs to the stage, shouting, Anjali, Anjali. He is finally subdued and sent home. Kailash is talking to Kala, asking about Manohar and Anajali and Deepa. She advises him not to get interested in Deepa, as she has categorically ruled out marriage. Kala leaves, and Poogudi is coming down the street toward Kailash. Next day, Manohar and Ranga's doctor both come to her home. Deepa comes to pick up Ranga, but Ranga says, just wait, I have to say thanks to Manohar and the other doctor. Ranga watches as Deepa is watching anxiously from the outside. Manohar asks where Swati learned the song. From Deepa, she says. He says, you see, I already knew that song...
