The film did not fair well at the Box - Office. M. N. Nambiar cast as one of the heros in Jupiter Pictures Productions Kanjan in 1947. He casts as hero again 5 years later in Kalyani by Sundaram. Inspite of the impressive performance by Nambiar, in a difficult role and Saroja as the suffering wife. An early Tamil film revolving around a mentally deranged man.
