When MGR gives a plan to attack only pirate ships Nagesh comes to the frame and says why he has changed then MGR says he is only acting so they cannot harm passenger ships.
The scene continues with MGR taking up a pirate ship and amassing the wealth. When the pirate ship reaches the shores of Selva Theevu he was welcomed by Nambiyar.
Part of the loot was given as a share to MGR and his men. MGR orders his men to melt the jeweleries into Gold and send it to the people of Neidhal Nadu. Then Gundumani says ”If we give everything to others what about us”. MGR says
To change her mood, Jayalalitha plans to take a voyage, though Ramadass tells the peril and risk involved in sea and also MGR has turned as a pirate. But she takes up the journey.
The next hunt begins for MGR incidentally he sights a pirate flagged ship thinking that it is a pirate ship, MGR orders to attack and take over. After getting inside the pirate ship one of Nambiyar’s men enter into the princess room to gets his hand on the jewels of Jayalalitha, and MGR dashes into and orders to free her and also get out of the deck. [MGR is seen with a peculiar sword trade mark of Ayirathil Oruvan with that sword one can easily say it is from Ayirathil Oruvan]. MGR tries to say why he turned as a pirate. But she did not accepts and MGR with help of Nagesh tries to safe guard her from the sight of Nambiyar. But the plan gets foiled and Nambiyar was taken away by the beauty, and order to bring her to auction. (Check out typical belt on MGR’s hip)
Nambiyar makes up a plan to buy her in the auction for 1 lakh, but his wife L.Vijayalakshmi has another to buy her 1.5 lakhs. Song goes on explaining her pathetic condition. The song ends and the auction begins. She was finally bought by MGR for 2 lakhs gold. [Remember MGR was sold for 1 gold and he is buying her the Princess of Kannitheevu for 2 lakhs gold.]
Even though MGR interfered in the auction and saved her from Nambiyar but Jayalalitha did not understand and she is not able to digest the change of gentleman MGR to a pirate.
Nambiyar did not stop with that failure, before he reaches MGR’s hut, L.Vijayalakshmi tries to convince Jayalalitha to marry MGR but she hesitates then Nambiyar enters.
Typical MGR one liners at his best in Ayirathil Oruvan dialouge between MGR and Nambiyar.

Then sword fight with both hands continues. I have to mention that it is safer to fight with two equal sized swords with two hands but it is riskier to fight with a knife and a sword with both hands. Before the fight ends, Jayalalitha on the request of L.Vijayalakshmi, stops the fight and says that according to the law of the Island that the Leader should bless the couple. Nambiyar’s with disgust and hatred blesses them. Is it a bless of a Leader, good acting by Nambiyar.
