Twenty-three years later, Raja and Rajini meet Rishi’s mother and drop off their son’s letter. The woman breaks down and tells Raja and Rajini that it is her son’s suicide letter. She also reveals how Rishi’s roommate Santosh was sent to jail for ragging Rishi and charged with murder under circumstantial evidence. Rishi’s mother feels guilty of sending a young boy to jail and ruining his life. So, then the three decide to meet Santosh to apologise for their mistakes and handover Rishi’s letter to him.
When they reach Santosh’s house, we learn that it is the same guy who killed the security man.

Santosh then makes coffee for the three while they watch TV, where news about a psycho killer is flashed. The three are shocked to learn that the killer is none other than Santosh. Even as news of Santosh is being aired on TV, the latter ties them to a chair and demonstrates how he kills a man live. While he does so, Rajini smartly acts to this situation.
Rajini secretly calls the cops on her cellphone and keeps it on while she interrogates Santosh about the old man and the reason behind killing him. Santosh also reveals that when he came out of jail, he killed a guy to go back to the place where he came from. However, he was not caught and so he started to enjoy the thrill to kill security guys.
