Dinesh ji,

1) Would மணிபுஷ்பம் (manipushpam) make better sense for மனிபுதம்
(maniputam) / manipudbam / maniputpam ?
    Yes! *மணிபுஷ்பம் *(manipushpam) (= bead flower or bell flower) must be
the correct name. Manipudam or Maniputam do not make sense to me.

2) Does கோழிக்கோட்டை (koli-k-kottai) seem to make sense for A. solanacea
? Google text / image search does not display results related to plants at
all.
    I am not sure but *கோழிக்**கோட்டை *seem to be fine. The name
'kozhikotai' *கோழிக்**கொடை *(= chicken's umbrella, referring to the shape
of the flower) is also seem to be appropriate
http://indiabiodiversity.org/species/show/7964.

3) *narikandam*, is a name shared by *Aegiceras corniculatum *with *Ardisia
solanacea*. Would it rather be spelled as நாரிக்கண்டல் ?
    The Tamil name 'kandal' is generally applied to mangrove plants. So, I
would retain the name 'narikandam' *நாரிக்கண்டம் *here based on the
reference/s.

The name *கோழுருச்சி* 'kolurucci' sounds legit, too.
The Malayali tribes in Tiruvannamalai district (TN) call this plant as
‘Paalaamani' பாலாமணி or 'Kokkaa mani’ கொக்கா மணி.
