Bhagyaraj)'s family (Father and Step-mother) to come see Mangalam. Mangalam's family loves Chellai Durai, and Chellai Durai feels the same about Mangalam. Chellai Durai's family promise to send their reply later. In the meantime, Chellai Durai courts Mangalam (though initially shy), and meets the Master of the martial arts (M. N.
