Look for match in two files and print out in the first file

I have two files and if Original.csv match in the 3 column it should then add the text Hello in the first file.
If a value in Original.csv does not exists in Random.csv it should not add Hello

reader1 = csv.reader(open('Original.csv', 'r'), delimiter=';')
row1 = next(reader1)
reader2 = csv.reader(open('Random.csv', 'r'), delimiter=';')
row2 = next(reader2)
if (row1[3] == row2[3]):
   print("Hello", row1)

Orginal.csv contains:


Random.csv contains:

So the output should be in Original.csv
