Arumai Pragasam gets back to his house, and hides the money in his room, and dreams about a lavish life. Das, with the help of his elder brother, a Rowdy/Doctor, gets to know about Bramma and warns them to stay safe. Das devices a plan that, to get back the money, they should kidnap Arumai Pragasam again. coincidentally they are trapped by Brahma. somehow, they manage to escape from him. They accidentally meet him and succesfully kidnap him again. But Das lets Arumai go free, after making him promise that he should not tell anything about them to the Police. Arumai also promises to give their share of ransom money back to Das. Bramma finds out about the failed kidnapping plan set by Arumai, and warns him that he should tell the truth about the people who kidnapped him later. Das and Co become approvers and they surrender in the court and reveal to the media that they won't escape from the cops' custody, and that if they're shot dead, it's Bramma's fault. But Arumai tells in the court that Das and Co did not kidnap him. So the court lets them free. But Bramma who is very angry on them takes them to a remote location and brutally beats them plans to kill them. But they are saved by a rusty gun, that misfires into Bramma's arse. Das & Co escape from there with the Rowdy Doctor's help. Meanwhile Arumai's father finds out that Arumai has been hiding the money in his room, and beats him. Arumai locks his room and quickly transfers the money to some other bag and replaces them with old newspapers. Arumai's father just breaks in and takes the bag with the newspaper to the Chief Minister, who actually arranged the ransom money, as the Minister is very honest and did not have that much money, and also to stop the bad name that his party will get, if they fail to save their Minister's son from kidnappers. But The Minister is shocked to find out that the money is gone again, when he opens the bag . Now Arumai gives Das and Co's share to them. The Chief Minister calls Arumai Pragasam to his office, and offers him a chance to participate in the upcoming elections in place of his father, who never earned big money to the party by means of bribe etc. The CM says that Arumai is a clever guy and believes that, he can earn a lot for the Party. Arumai wins the upcoming elections and takes Sekar and Kesavan as his Personal Advisers. Pagalavan begins to act in a movie directed by The Rowdy/Doctor, which is a B- film. And Das once again begins his kidnapping lessons to a new set of youth. They look out to kidnap someone and they end up kidnapping a girl, who looks like Shalu exactly. It is later revealed that girl is Shalini Gupta, the daughter of a Central Minister, which indicates that Das has once again broken his first rule, and is all set for another adventurous journey with a good ending.
