Simbhu's directorial touches were conspicuous in Manmadhan
though the credit went to A J Murugan. As it turned out, Simbhu's astute story
and screenplay had a big say in the film's decent run. The actor's confidence
reflected in the way he handled a heavier character with panache in Thotti Jaya
. To go by the old saying, success not only brings confidence but also a speck
of arrogance. When the arrogant ways has a positive effect on the end product of
the film, no eyebrows are raised nor any individual is taken to task.
