His wife Dr. Shalini becomes an authoritative, nagging wife who controls him. She has resigned from her job to take care of the household, after marriage. Raghuvaran is also dismissive about his wife getting another job.
Raguvaran efficiently completes construction projects assigned to him, with the help of about 200 unemployed young Civil, Mechanical and Electrical engineers from the first part. Vasundhara, chairman of a leading construction company in South India, sees Raguvaran at the Engineer of the Year 2016 Awards ceremony and finds out about him. She makes Raghuvaran a job offer, but he politely refuses.
Later, Raguvaran's project team and Vasundara's top team are invited at the same time to exhibit their models for a proposed private medical college and hospital construction, to a very rich and native Trader. Vasundhara exhibits heavy pride and ego, while Raguvaran explains his project in a simple manner.
The trader awards the projects to Anitha constructions. Raguvaran also provides some polite advice to Vasundhara outside the building. This offends her and she begins to go after him, placing one obstacle after another. First, she uses her influence in the state cabinet, to force the trader to give the project back to her. She then makes counter-bids to all Anitha construction projects at a lower price. So Anitha constructions begin to lose its own projects.
Raguvaran learns of this and quits his job, to save his first company. How Raghuvaran survives the attack of Vasundhara and again raise the ranks form the crux of the story.
