Poonghuzhali, having seen the Pandyas, alerts Chinna Pazhuvettaraiyar of their infiltration. Meanwhile, in Kadambur, Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar and the other kings propose dividing the kingdom between him and Madhurantakan but Aditha Karikalan opposes and agrees to let go of the domain in favour of Madhuranthakan if he will be allowed to keep his army and conquer lands to the north for his siblings safety. Everyone accepts his condition. Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar departs to Thanjavur for relaying the news to Madhurantakan but Karuthiruman, a rowing man who assisted the Pandyas in Lanka, notifies him of Nandini and the Pandyas’ conspiracy to assassinate Aditha Karikalan in Kadambur. Intending to save Aditha Karikalan, he rushes back to Kadambur while the Pandyas also intrude on Kadambur through a tunnel, which Vandiyadevan also goes through to rescue Aditha Karikalan. Mandakini makes her way to Sundara Chozhar but dies after taking an arrow, which was intended for him; Ponniyin Selvan, hearing his father screaming out of sorrow, gets there, subdues the Pandya assassins, and kills them. In Kadambur, Aditha Karikalan meets with Nandini and asks whey she wants him here. On seeing him face-to-face who can see through her eyes and mind, Nandini’s motivation stumble.

Kirubhakar Purushothaman, of The Indian Express, gave 4.0 out of 5 stars and wrote “While the fans of the book might be disappointed with some major deviations from the book, the ace director understands the form won’t let him be entirely faithful to the novel.” Haricharan Pudipeddi, a critic of Hindustan Times, wrote “Apart from the gut-wrenching drama, it’s the exquisite that elevate PS 2 in terms of delivering a larger-than-life viewing experience.” M. Suganth of The Times of India gave 3.5 out of 5 stars and opined that “right until the climax, this doomed romance is what sustains the tension in this tale and drives the characters to make decisions that have far-reaching impact”.

Aditha Karikalan’s corpse is brought to Thanjavur, where Sundara Chozhar, his family, and the public lament his death. On a ship, Karuthiruman, who is apprehended by the celebrating Pandyas, reveals to a restless Nandini who lost in thoughts of Aditha karikalan, that her father is Veerapandiyan, who assaulted Mandakini and impregnated her, following Sundara Chozhar’s trail; this was the reason why he raised Nandini.

Nambi tells Chinna Pazhuvettaraiyar about Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar’s location and he is consequently freed from the Pandyas. While Vandiyadevan is being accused in Sundara Chozhar’s court, Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar returns and discloses the truth. Meanwhile, Parthibendran presumes Ponniyin Selvan to be the mastermind behind Aditha Karikalan’s death and allies with the Rashtrakutas and other rival kingdoms to invade the Chola empire to avenge Aditha Karikalan’s death. Sundara Chozhar is informed of this and lets Vandiyadevan assist Ponniyin Selvan in the forthcoming battle.
Nandini daydreams about Aditha Karikalan by seeing the Tiger Signet ring which was given by Aditha Karikalan to her years before. Later Nandini, Ravidasan and others conspire to assassinate Aditha Karikalan, Sundara Chozhar and Ponniyin Selvan at the same time and Nandini divulges that she plans to kill Aditha Karikalan in Kadambur, where he would be coming; the captured Vandiyadevan, pretending to be unconscious, hears this. Later, he discloses to Nandini that he had seen Oomai Rani, who resembles her and is her mother; and in return, Nandini spares Vandiyadevan from death. Nambi disguises himself and rescues Vandiyadevan, who rushes to meet Kundavai and notifies her of Ponniyin Selvan’s existence; she professes her feelings for him.
