In the previous episode of Gattimela, Vedanth asks Aarthi and Vicky to get engaged in front of their loved ones, even though everyone is not there. When he mentions that it is technically not wrong, Aadya and Sarthak arrive there to support his decision. Soon, Vedanth dreams that Amulya is thanking Vedanth for all his help with a kiss but it turns out that Ammu brings both her younger sisters with weapons to teach him a lesson. In the end, Vedanth smiles wide looking at Amulya.
On tonight’s episode, Amulya, who signals to Vedanth to smile a little is surprised to see him grinning at her. They then signal to each other while blushing that neither of them gets dimples while smiling. Amulya, who is laughing at this, is soon stunned to see Vedanth standing at the opposite staring at her, puzzled.
She quickly swings back to look for the smiling Vedanth but he is nowhere to be seen. That’s when she realises it was a dream and shows disgust as it some dirt went into her mouth. At the Vashishta house, Suhasini is thrilled to see Sarika in a traditional outfit and takes her straight to the pooja room.
Upon probing about the occasion, Sarika is ecstatic to learn that she is going to be part of a ritual that is done from a mother-in-law to her future daughter-in-law. Back at the temple, just as Vicky asks Aarthi if she is okay with such a kind of an ‘engagement’, Amulya intervenes and asks them to speak out loudly.
Adithi then reminds Vicky that today is the day he is supposed to propose today so he takes Aarthi to the centre of the group and goes on one knee. However, when a teardrop falls on his hand, he realises that Aarthi is silently crying. Everyone including Vicky gets worried and ask her what the matter is.
She finally reveals that she cannot think about an ‘engagement’ without her parents. She assures everyone that she is not planning to back out from the marriage but she doesn’t want to get engaged like this because all the people she loves aren’t here. Amulya then excuses her and Aarthi and takes her sister to one side of the temple.
Then, slowly she starts explaining to Aarthi that she hated love sometime back until she saw her and Vicky together. She continues to say that looking at them she has now started developing the feeling that love cannot be all that bad. Ammu continues by saying that Aarthi has always lived for others and she deserves to get this one day for herself.
When Ammu tells Aarthi that eventually their parents are mature enough to understand eventually why she did what they did, the latter realises her mistake and goes back to Vicky. But before she can say anything Vicky starts speaking and makes it clear to everyone that he fell in love with Aarthi for the person she is so whatever she decides he will be okay with it.
He also thanks Vedanth for opening his eyes and promises everyone that he will not take silly decisions again because he knows that his fate is bound to Aarthi now. As they are leaving, his wallet accidentally falls out of his pocket and Pari and Manjunath’s photo slips out from it behind Suhasini and Sridhar’s photo.
A stunned Aarthi then recollects how Vicky had told her parents that he is their son from now on. With tears in her eyes, she doesn’t think twice and puts the ring around Vicky’s finger. Vicky cannot believe this and gets emotional while their loved ones clap delightfully.
At Suhasini’s home, she curses the obstacles that came in between this ritual and then hands over the auspicious plate to Sarika. Suhasini then announces that after this ritual, Sarika becomes her daughter-in-law in a way. At the temple, Vicky throws a loving taunt to Aarthi that when he thought to be serious for one moment she took a hasty decision like him.
To this, Aadya signals to Amulya and Vedanth and announces that people who love each other subconsciously follow each other’s behaviour. Amulya and Vedanth, who remember the times they copied each other’s habits, shrug it off in disgust. By this time, Vicky too puts the ring on Aarthi’s finger and they both get engaged officially.
They both then take blessings from everyone around. Finally, Adithi asks Amulya to officially thank Vedanth for all his help and puts her hands in his hands. Without letting go of each other’s hand, they both end up staring at each other awkwardly.
Will Ammu thank Vedanth? What will his reaction be? Stay tuned to tomorrow’s episode to find out.
