Shankar makes out that he is dead. After his death, his insurance money will be received by Meenatchi.

While fighting, Shankar's daughter gets frightened and kills Shankar. Meenatchi is shocked and hides his body in a room. Thats when Adaikalam gets released from jail. When he goes to meet Shankar, Meenatchi tries to stop him entering the room, but she cannot. When Adaikalam sees the body, he is shocked.
