Earlier in the Zee Telugu show Muddha Mandaram, Soundaraya meets Abhi and finds out the reason behind Abhi’s hatred for the Ghattammaneni family. When Abhi starts wondering if he really belongs to that family, Neelambari makes an entry. Later, she speaks to Akhilandeswari on the phone. The next day, she lands in the Ghattammaneni house and starts sweet-talking to everyone and asks them to believe that she is a changed person now. Soundarya thinks of a new plan that will keep them ahead of Neelambari at every step.
Watch the week in the short, from 21 October 2019 to 26 October 2019:
Bhavani and Neelambari take their secret meeting ahead when Abhi and Surya come in. So, Bhavani hides behind the curtains as the boys discuss their new venture with Neelambari.
Neelambari tells Abhi that he will not be an orphan for long because Akhilandeswari has been doing all that she can to bring him home. Abhi tells her that there is no way for anyone to take him as the Ghattammaneni heir.
By the time Bhavani comes back home, everyone knew that she was with Neelambari. This makes Akhila furious and Soundarya suggests a way to knock some sense into the grandmother-granddaughter duo – by burning camphor on their bare palms.
Once Bhavani reveals all of Neelambari’s plans, Akhilandeswari commands Bhavani to get out of the house. Bhavani starts begging everyone to let her stay. No one gives any response, except for Soundarya who asks Akhila to show mercy upon them.
Akhila tells Bhavani to learn her lesson now and be grateful to Soundarya. Everyone leaves and Bhavani continues to beg them to remove the camphor from their hands. Lastly, Soundarya tells her to allow her evilness to burn away too and leaves.
The next morning, Gani and Sarsu come home to inform that Soundarya’s curse is all because of his wrongdoings, years ago. At the same time, Soundarya comes home excitedly and tells Aishwarya that they have successfully achieved step 1 of their plan.
Bhavani tries to get someone in the house to talk to her but no one gives any reaction. Akhila even asks who she was. As Akhila goes out, Bhavani picks up her shoes and asks her to wear yet Akhila does not respond.
Soundarya meets Chandrika on the way and exchanges the burqa with her. Instead of Chandrika, Soundarya goes to Bhikshapati as Mumtaz and woos him into revealing the truth about Abhi’s parents to Akhilandeswari.
The next day, in the temple, Soundarya ties a mudupu and takes blessing from the gods. Bhavani and Neelambari take this opportunity to hit and kill her. But they end up hitting each other.
