To her shock two days before the wedding Vijay meet’s her in a cafe day and tells her that he does not want to marry her. The reason he gives for not marrying is that since he is back from London he has changed a lot, he is modern, more sophisticated, his standards are more and hence she is no longer his type of girl with whom he wants to settle, as she is still the same simple woman who is not modern. She begs him to marry her and assures him she would change herself as per his likes after the wedding. However, Vijay rejects her and says he will not change his decision, as he no longer wants to marry her.
