அங்கமுத்து அவர்கள் ஒரு மிகச் சிறந்த கலை வல்லுநர் ஆவார். குறிப்பாக உலகம் சுற்றும் வாலிபன் படத்தில் இடம் பெற்ற புத்தர் ஆலயம் தமிழ்த் திரையுலக வரலாற்றில் தனி இடம் பிடித்ததாகும். இன்றைக்கு இருக்கக் கூடிய பல தொழில் நுட்ப உதவிகள் இல்லாத அந்தக் காலகட்டத்தில் அவர் இருந்த வசதிகளைக் கொண்டு பல சிறந்த கலையமைப்புகளை வடிவமைத்தவர். அவருடைய கால கட்டத்தில் இருந்த தோட்டா-மணி, நாகராஜன் போன்ற வல்லுநர்களிடையே தன்னுடைய தனித்துவத்தை நிலைநாட்டியவர். அவருடைய மறைவு நிச்சயம் தமிழ்த் திரையுலகிற்கும், குறிப்பாக அ.இ.அ.தி.மு.க. விற்கும் ஈடு செய்ய முடியாத இழப்பாகும்.
