Director Sridhar is far-famed as the iconic emblem of Tamil film industry, whose movies based on different genres had stunned the entire country. One among them happens to be 1963 movie Nenjam Marapathillai, which is based on the reincarnation concept.

It was something completely new and unexpected over those times. Sridhar made this film based on the inspirations gained from newspaper articles. The film is regarded as one among 100 best classical movies of Tamil cinema. Kalyan Kumar and Devika played the lead roles in this film, which has Nambiar as the terrorizing villain named ‘Zamindar’.

Others in the cast included S.V. Sahasranamam, Nagesh, Manorama, Padmini Priyadarshini, Mali and many more prominent actors. The film had musical score by Viswanathan Ramamoorthy with lyrical lines penned by Kannadasan.
