The previous episode opened with the results being announced for the best performances in the competition. While Muthurasan was fair and gave Pooja enough marks to state how her cooking was good, Simran gave Vennila 20/10. Shocked and surprised by the marks escalation, Vennila asks them why they chose to give her such numbers. Muthurasan is super proud of his wife as she has lived up to his expectations and pleased his guests with her delicious food. The house members then begin preparations for Pongal.
Tonight, Muthurasan is seen revealing the true purpose of Pongal and how it is celebrated to acknowledge the hard work of all the farmers and to bring in the new year with utmost gusto. He adds that the fervour of joy gets better when shared with the rest of the folks. Besides, all the work is for nothing if it cannot be shared with people. Neelambari is at a loss for words while Poongodi feels embarrassed. She stands quietly as Muthurasan reprimands her for her behaviour and doesn’t care that the rest of the villagers are standing right there, watching the drama. He then asks her to apologise to the crowd for her behaviour and she does as told, to avoid further conflict. What could Poongodi have said or done that made Muthurasan so angry? Stay tuned!
If you are new to the series, here’s all you need to know about it. Muthurasan is a wealthy landowner whose stepmother, Neelambari, has killed his first wife Chithra. While Chithra is dead, her spirit continues to stay by Muthurasan’s side to protect him and the family from all the evils. Neelambari’s eyes are set on acquiring Muthurasan’s wealth. Hence, she tries to get him to marry her niece, Swetha, who casts a spell on Mutharasan to make him forget his love for Vennila. Eventually, Swetha’s plans fail and Muthurasan gets married to his cousin Vennila. But the spell is still in effect and he is not entirely convinced about Swetha being evil. So, on the first night after their marriage, he requests Vennila to give him some time, before they can take their relationship to the next level.
