Imlie 31 December 2022: Dulari in her usual rudest way tells Tripathis that they are all wrong even after being well educated, even an illiterate like her knows that one cannot inebriate anyone and get intimate with other person and whoever does this heinous act should be punished. Aparna says Malini is still Adi’s wife, nobody knows what happened behind closed door, even Malini was inebriated and case may go against Adi; when police inspector who arrested Malini is not sure if Malini molested Adi, how can they. She blames Imlie for conspiring against Malini as she hates her and wants to get her rid off Adi’s life; asks Adi to explain it to Imlie. Adi holds Imlie’s hand and asks to come along. Imlie resists. Adi drags her out forcefully and asks her to come to police station and take back her complaint.
At C house, Anu’s lawyer Desai brings Malini home after bailing her out. Anu thanks him and asks what should they do next. He asks not to worry as a man will not tell what happened to him, they themselves will take the case back. Imlie denies to take back case against Malini. Adi reminds Malini’s favors to her and says her evidence is not enough to file case against Malini. Dev asks Malini if Adi really got intimate with her. Anu asks what is he asking, Malini is Adi’s wife. Dev shouts only on papers and that because Malini denied to divorce Adi; he asks Malini if it was Adi’s wish that night. Adi tells Imlie that she cannot file FIR against Malini just on the basis of burnt sari, if Malini is right that even she was inebriated, he will have to pay for it. She says even a woman can be wrong and she just wants to punish a culprit whether he supports her or not. Desai tells Dev that this case is very weak and Imlie’s team cannot prove their allegations.
Dulari sees Tripathis sitting seriously and asks them to order jalebis and celebrate as Kalini/Malini is out of their house. Harish says she doesn’t know there are in trouble because of Imlie. Dulari says Malini should be ashamed for her crime. Aparna says Malini is still Adi’s wife and intimacy between husband and wife is coommon. Rupali asks how can she be so sure, let the court decide. Malini with Anu enters and cries hugging Aparna. Imlie asks how did she get out of jail. Anu says when the case is false, nobody can bind Malini and warns Tripathis to take back the case or else she will file case against Adi and make them cry for him. Harish says even they want to take back case, but Imlie is adamant and don’t what she is up to. Adi tells Malini that he feels sorry that she suffered and went to jail for his mistake.
Anu says its not their mistake but servant Imlie’s, her plan failed and she didn’t even get a lawyer to favor her.Kunal enters saying she is right and says he will fight Imlie’s case. He says its true that a woman doesn’t allege a man usually, but without mutual consent, intimacy cannot happen and if one party forces other party, he/she is guilty and if its proved, court will consider Malini guilty. Adi says a lawyer like him doesn’t take up case without any valid proof, then how can she consider Malini wrong. Kunal says he took up case as he knows Malini well and if she is guilty, she should be punished. Malini asks Aditya to let it be as when her own sister sent her to jail, what she can expect from strangers. She walks away. Kunal says he needs everyone’s statement.
Harish says he can do whatever he wants to, but his family members will not support him. He sends whole family in. Kunal asks Adi to stay for Imlie, if not for justice. Adi says he did a biggest sin that night, he betrayed his wife and cannot allege someone else. Kunal says if he accepts his mistake, he should tell what happened and let him leave this case. Adi says he doesn’t remember anything. Kunal asks when he isn’t sure, how can he consider his wife wrong. Adi says he is unable to understand anything and walks away.Malini while returning home remembers Kunal’s words and tells Anu that she wasn’t taking it seriously till now, but Imlie brought Kunal; will she go to jail if she is proven guilty. Anu says even country’s biggest lawyer cannot help Imlie as she cannot prove anything, Adi is on her side and not Imlie’s and hence she need not worry.
Kunal tells Imlie that her fight is very difficult as her husband is on her side, Anu will try to destroy any evidence gathered by them, he takes case for truth and will support her in her fight. Imlie says she she ignored Malini’s mistakes, but this time she made a sin. Kunal says court will not consider Malini guilty until they gather evidence and their case is weak. Imlie says she is fighting for her husband’s dignity and will not back off. Mithi tells Imlie that she is on her side, but will she do if one whom she is supporting goes against her. Imlie says she doesn’t know what to do, but KC assured to support truth. Mithi says she told KC likes Malini, will he go against Malini.
Malini visits Kunal. Kunal says he must have come again to seek his help. She says he always helped her, but today she increased her problems. He she is responsible for it. She says he cannot judge her without knowing truth. He asks who is he to judge her. She asks if according to him, she was good when she was sacrificing her right and when she is fighting for her, she is wrong. He asks what right. She says Adi is her husband and she loves him. He says how it feels when they love someone and someone considers them as friend, Adi doesn’t love her, and she is just obsessed with him. She asks him to take back case against her. He says he cannot until his client wants to. She asks if he wants her to be humiliated during trials and go to jail. He says no, he will not help her as she is trying to misuse him in lieu of friendship, she is habituated to misuse people’s friendship.
She asks if he thinks she misused Adi. He says he is not a judge to give verdict. She warns to continue with case if he wants to destroy his career as no one will believe that a woman forced a man for intimacy. He says he knew she would say this, law doesn’t look at gender, she should stop acting as her friend as she is trying to misuse it, she knows KC doesn’t take case without any reason. She says let us see and walks away.Next morning, during breakfast, Harish angrily calls Imlie. Radha asks why is he shouting. Imlie walks to him. Harish says court has sent them a summon asking them to be present as evidence. Aparna asks if they have to visit court now. Imlie says they have to fight for Adi’s dignity.
Adi says Malini supported him for years, she backed off when he informed her that he loves Imlie instead, she sacrificed a lot for him, he cannot believe Malini misused him, he made a mistake, then why is Imlie fighting. Aparna says this girl wants to humiliate them, but she will not let her succeed and will not go to court. Pankaj says they have to or else they will be prosecuted. Harish says Pankaj is right, they have to go or else will go to jail. Radha says this girl will not be quiet until she removes all hurdles. She, Aparna, and Harish walk away. Pankaj tells Imlie that he is unable to understand her act, if she is sure she is doing right. She says she is worried for family like them, there is no other way than this to get truth out. He says he is with her then.
Dev speaks to his lawyer Desai over phone. Malini asks Dev to tell Imlie to take back case. He asks why. She is afraid. He says she told she didn’t do anything wrong. She remembers mixing hypnotic in juice. He asks if she wants to confess. She says she is not wrong and is worried for Tripathi family’s dignity. Dev says he would have requested Imlie if Malini had not requested him suspiciously, he is a father with a weak heart and cannot see any of his daughter in trouble. Anu says he doesn’t have to plead servant Imlie as she has already made arrangements to make sure Tripathis don’t reach court. Tripathis head towards court when mob stages protest against them and allege Adi that he is the one who ruined a girl’s life, don’t know who is his mother who bore this characterless son.
Adi angrily tries to retaliate. In court, judge asks KC about his clients and why didn’t they reach court yet. Desai says they are wasting court’s time.Mob gets angry and try to trash Adi with a slipper when Imlie stops them and says there is law to take action, who are they to decide. A woman says which woman will force herself on a man. Imlie says many are victims, but don’t seek justice, why are they stopping her to reach court, etc. She continues her long speech. Dulari enters with lathi/wooden rod and shoos mob away. Back in court, KC tells judge that usually in these kind of cases, evidences are stopped and his client are also stopped as case is against famous family of this city. Desai asks if its a sin to be a famous family and asks judge to dismiss this case as any dignified woman will not force herself on a man.
Judge says he has to listen to defense lawyer’s request as evidences have not reached court. Imlie enters with T family. KC asks why is she late. She says she had to fight another battle before reaching here. KC alleges that Mallini drugged Adi and got intimate with him. Desai calls Harish in dais and asks if he remembers what happened that night. Harish says he doesn’t as he was inebriated. Desai then calls Adi in dais.
