Production[edit]

The film was produced by SM. Letchumanan Chettiar, a notable personality in the Tamil film industry in the 1950s.[1] He was the first person to print and distribute handbills in Tamil and the first person to use cars such as Buick, Chevrolet, Studebaker and Dodge in Chennai.[1] Due to some legal problems, his name was never credited in any of his films and only the name of his production banner "Krishna Pictures" appeared in the credits.[1]
