Back in Delhi, Ravi's boss's daughter has fallen in love with him. Since he loves Vatsala, Ravi resigns from his job and relocates to Mysore. And finds that his sister and brother-in-law have agreed to marry off Vatsala to someone else without her consent. When the sister learns that Vatsala and Ravi are in love, she forces Vatsala to reject Ravi by blackmailing her that she'll set herself on fire. She wants her daughter Nagaveni to marry Ravi instead. Ravi is dejected due to Vatsala's refusal to marry him, meets with an accident, and becomes blind. Nagaveni now refuses to marry the blind Ravi. The succeeding events lead to a happy ending.
