Box office

The film became hit at box office due to Vyjayanthimala fan craze.


The success of this movie basked the producer A. V. Chettiar to remake it in Hindi as Ladki with Kishore Kumar and Bharat Bhushan for S. Balachander and Gemini Ganesan roles respectively which becomes second highest grossing film of 1953 with verdict hit.[1] The film also made simultaneously in Tamil as Penn with Gemini Ganesan in N. T. Rama Rao's role while S. Balachander reprises his role from the original.[2] Among the cast Vyjayanthimala, Anjali Devi and Chittor V. Nagaiah are the only actors to retain their roles in all three languages.
