In the week before the last in Muddha Mandaram, Bhavani informs Neelambari about Shiva Shankar’s well-being. They plan another move to bring Soundarya down and take Abhi away from the Ghattammaneni family. That night, Abhi tries to meet Soundarya but is framed for murder, and taken to the police station. When Aishwarya suggests Bhavani apply henna to Soundarya, she tries to escape the situation. That’s when Bhavani follows Soundarya into the kitchen and finds out that she has burnt her hand.
Now, watch the week in short here, from 9th to 13th December 2019:
Akhilandeswari applies ointment to Soundarya’s burnt palm when Abhi calls her incessantly. Chaitra insists Soundarya on picking up the call – to check if it’s her ‘boyfriend’ Abhi.
She tries and escapes the moment, somehow. Once the two ladies leave her room, Soundarya calls Abhi and asks the reason behind him calling her like that. Abhi tries to explain himself and says that he missed talking to his wife.
The following morning, Soundarya meets Abhi in a park. Two masked goons come and demand money from them. Abhi fights with the goons when three youngsters film this on their phones to share it online and gain instant likes.
Bhavani calls for a saree salesman at home and Aishwarya makes fun of her for being lazy to step out. Akhilandeswari asks Aishwarya to pick a few sarees for Soundarya too. That’s when Soundarya comes home to see the clip playing on the news channel. She tries to hide it, but Bhavani catches a glimpse.
Neelambari calls Bhikashapati and her new sidekick, Bharat. She takes out Bhikashapati’s locket from her drawer and discredits him for being a fool. Neelambari asks Bharat to take the chip out of the locket, but to her dismay, Bharat informs that there is no chip inside. Bhikashapati, who knows the truth, underplays by not reacting.
Bhavani, who has a video of Soundarya roaming with Abhi, gets Soundarya to be her slave. The younger one feeds Bhavani chips, as she reads some book. She excuses herself to call Abhi and he informs her to click on the link that he sent on Bhavani’s phone – that would delete the data on her phone.
Soundarya gets done with her work and decides to stop being a slave to Bhavani. She insults Bhavani by calling her a ‘dunnapotu’ (Buffalo). Bhavani drags Soundarya to Akhilandeswari and decides to unravel her secret rendezvous with Abhi. But Akhila, subtly and softly, tells Bhavani to stop disturbing her.
