After Narasimha expresses his love and promises to marry Lakshmi, Reddy comes to know that he is already married to Siddhamma when he was a child due to a ritual that helps rains in the region. The elders convince Reddy to perform the same ritual again with Siddhamma, which he agrees for the betterment of the region. Knowing this, Lakshmi tries to commit suicide, but Reddy convinces her to live and asks her to use her dance form to influence people. Lakshmi understands this and leaves the Renadu region. Meanwhile, Siddhamma expresses her love towards Reddy, which she has been hiding from childhood. Reddy is then shown living happily with his mother, wife, and other family members. During the same time, the British East India Company comes to India for business but soon starts to loot, torture the natives, and carry the natural wealth of India back to Britain.
