‘Kaakka muttai’ Manikandan had earned considerable fame across the nation in his very first film and also was the cause for the national award which has been given to those two boys who had been acted in that film. Music director G.V.Prakash had added extra effect to this film through his music.
At present, Manikandan is directing a film named ‘Kutrame Dhandanai’. Music director of this film is ‘Ilayaraja’. He has been assigned with music director ‘K’ for his third film in which Vijay sethupathi is going to cast. He garners commendations from various ends as he has not fixed his mindset to a particular music director for his films.
