While they were returning, something mysterious happens and a ghost named as Nagavali (Bharathi) appears. Since the movie they went to watch was a late night show, it was almost midnight by the time this incident takes place. The couple then decides to go from another road which is shorter.
This short cut passes through a town, quite normal and regularly used by the passer-by’s. But when the couple cross that local village, an old man tries to stop them and convince them not to travel that road. This old man is actually possessed by the ghost Nagavali who is trying to trap the couple. Despite being warned, the couple still choose not to care and walk along the same way. However, no ghosts come.
However, two drunk men interrupt the couple on their way and try to rape the girl. The girl on the other hand, acts smartly and behaves as if she is possessed. This scares the drunk men who run away and later get killed by the actual ghost Nagavali. The lovers return to their homes comfortably. Then the show talks about the story of the girl’s family and how they used to live and survive maintaining their lifestyle etc. This is a basic storyline of the show Adhey Kangal.
