Astonished by the beauty of nature, he decides to take off and stay in the village guest house. Also, he makes a proposal to marry Chembakam and take her back to town and thereby provide her a luxurious life. In spite of knowing Chandru is in love with Chembakam, Shivan agrees to give his sister's hand in marriage to Rajendran thinking that her sister will be fine for the rest of her life.
