The next day, when he asks Rekha why she murdered her husband (Raghuvaran), she tells him about her past. Raghuvaran hated beautiful women as he was harassed badly by his stepmother. Hence, he used to ill-treat Rekha. Her childhood friend Babu (Anand Babu), a disco dancer, advised Raghuvaran not to do so, but to no avail. Hence Babu was very angry with him. One day, after giving another dose of torture to Rekha, Raghuvaran went upstairs. Later, Rekha found him to be murdered. She did not know who the murderer was.
In an interesting plot twist, a police officer also gets involved. One day in the bar, where Babu was dancing, one of Raghuvaran's former aides was found murdered and the knife used to kill him was in Babu's hands. At this point, everyone involved is taken to police custody, and the murderer's identity is revealed at the end.
