The reason: Ajith was pouring his love out to someone else thinking that she was Jyothika!

Let’s explain this. Under the cover of darkness Jyothika confesses her love for Ajith. Thinking that it was Priyanka Trivedi who was speaking to him, Ajith begins to love her. Suddenly, a villain pops out of nowhere and causes the death of Priyanka. Then, finally, after dilly dallying for a very long time, the story ends with the coming together of the lead pair of Ajith and Jyothika.

Jyothika is Priyanka Trivedi’s college senior. Priyanka Trivedi does the message girl task for Jyothika, carrying her messages of love to Ajith. Ajith kisses her and she ends up falling in love with him. This love track is a beautiful Haiku. Priyanka has a nickname of ‘curd rice’ in this film. It’s really tragic to see her die that way.
