In Pachaikili Muthucharam, Jyothika has played the role of a prostitute who delas exclusively with upper class men. There has been mixed response to her role in the film. Most of the people who have seen the film including her father-in-law has implied that it was rather unappropriate. All said and done, Jyothika has shown the Tamil audience that she is more versatile that one generally thought she was. She has shown that even more with her performance in Mozhi and you might say that she has done the balancing act by playing an equally opposite role in Mozhi
In Mozhi she plays a deaf and dumb lady who falls in love with a musician. She leaves absolutely no space for any of the other cast members to shine more than her. Contradictory to the response for her role in Pachaikili Muthucharam, she has everybody giving her virtual stamding ovations for her performnace in the film.
The films producer, Prakash Raj, said at the films premeire, "It is one of Jyothikas wonderful films. I am very proud to be able to be an instrument to enable her performance in the film."
