SS Vasan (born Subramaniam Srinivasan), also owner of a popular Tamil magazine and founder of Gemini Studios in 1940, became one of the movie moguls of Tamil cinema. Gemini Studios released Mangamma Sabatham/ Mangamma's Vow (1943), directed by Thoothukudi "Achary" Raghavachari like Apoorva Sagodharargal (1949), and Vasan personally directed Chandralekha (1948), the most expensive Indian film until then (and the first Bengali talkie to become a hit all over India). He also directed Insaniyat (1955), the only film to feature both Raj Kapoor and Dev Anand, a remake of Subba Rao's Palletoori Pilla (1950), and Paigham (1959), written by Ramanand Sagar.
