One of his friend (Ramesh Arvind) recommends him a detective who is a former Commando Major named R.Mannar (Kamal Haasan). Mannar is appointed by Madhan to track Ambu and find out her feelings for him. Thus, the 3 important characters are Madhan, Ambu and Mannar and so does the title depicts MANnarMADHAN AMBU.

Rest of the film shooting is done on a luxurious cruise. Ambu's friend Deepa (Sangeetha) who is a divorcee too joins the cruise with her two kids and suspects on Ambu and Mannar. There are many hilarious and interesting flashbacks roped in he story. In the end everything gets cleared up and they live happily together.
Each of the scenes is well placed and draws the audiences into each characters life. Trisha is the most lovable character. Her scenes as a movie star are perfect. She is best in the scene which shows her discomfort with the presence of her lover on the sets of shooting, her outburst while communication on phone was also admirable. Madhavan's scene in drunken state is superb.
Sangeetha portrays the practical women of today era. And in the end Kamal, who just molds himself from normal to casual to a serious guy effortlessly. His entry in the film is showcased after 20 minutes, but it adds such small touches that makes total difference and will give you an idea of what is called screen presence.
Technically the film is superb; screenplay is good with perfect editing. A cameraman has given a fresh look to the film. No dull moments for a total of 2 hours and 30 minutes. The shots taken on the cruise are amazing and the sound effects used gives audiences an experience of cruise.
Devi Prasad's music is melodious. Neela Vaanam is shot in an innovative manner, whereas Thagudu Thagudu … seems to fit the situation perfectly.
Kamal's style of rendition is same as in his yesteryear album 'Vasool Raja MBBS' for the song 'Love Pannada'. The lyrical lines by Kamal Haasan are funny yet realistic. Sounds like the title song and can we expect Kamal Haasan shaking legs after a long time. Lines like – Rich man pay Crores of contribution to God and bargain for vegetables. It's sure to be a chartbuster for this season. Devi Sri Prasad's usual tactics of beats and instrumentals are good.
