Director A.R.Murugadoss is well-known for his action dramas. His first film with actor Thalapathy Vijay had been Thupakki, in Telugu. He won Filmfare Award for Best Director, for his 2014 Tamil action drama, Kaththi. However, Murugadoss is yet to regain his image, after the flop of Spyder, with Mahesh Babu. Recently, though Sarkar with Vijay is a hit, there is no marked Murugadoss stamp in the film. Vijay's fans are now unhappy that the entire film ran just on Vijay's shoulders. Murugadoss is so immersed in his flop that he has not even changed the background of his Twitter handle, from Spyder to Sarkar.
