Production and release
Ohn Maung, Burma's pioneer filmmaker, had founded the Burma Film Company. He hired Nyi Pu, Burma's first actor, to act in the first Burmese feature film, the silent Myitta Nit Thuya (Love and Liquor).
The film opened with the title "Burma Film Presents: Love and Liquor" but there were no credits or mention of the cast. It was based on a story by P Moe Nin.
The film proved a major success, despite its poor quality due to a fixed camera position and inadequate film accessories.
