One day, the storm devastates the entire village, destroying the poor villagers' house. The villagers beg Ambalam to let them in the temple until the storm calms down but Ambalam refuses. Poochandu's mother breaks the temple's padlock to save the villagers. The next day, at the village panchayat, Ambalam condemn Poochandu's mother to tonsure and Poochandu to become a Devadasi.
