The d-day arrives and much to the surprise of the society members, Prem and Sandhya join the co-participants. Surprisingly, Prem shoulders the weight of his wife and surges past all other contestants who fall like nine pins. In the last lap, Sandhya confesses to Prem that she doesn't want to go to Meerut and wants Prem to get her to stay. Prem knows winning this competition is the only way to do this and pushes himself further to eventually win the race defeating his friend who owns the CD store.
