Plot

The story revolves around the two brothers Manikam and Kondamuthu and their mill owner.

Cast

Production

In 1959, S. S. Vasan, the proprietor of Gemini Studios, began working on a film built around capital-labour relations.[1] The film, which was the Tamil remake of the Hindi film Paigham,[2] was untitled, and the creative team of Gemini could not come up with a convincing title. Vasan invited his employees to suggest a title for the under-production film, and he received an abundance of entries; one office boy submitted as many as 2500 entries. After examining one by one, Vasan chose the title Irumbu Thirai, which means "Iron Curtain". He also hosted a reception to honour the boy who suggested the title and rewarded him with some price money.[1] Besides producing, Vasan also directed the film.[3]

The female cast of PaighamVyjayanthimala, B. Saroja Devi and Pandari Bai – returned to star in Irumbu Thirai,[4][5] while Sivaji Ganesan reprised the role originally played by Dilip Kumar. It was a "coup of sorts" for Vasan to cast Ganesan since the latter had earlier been rejected by the former for a role in Chandralekha (1948), an incident which created a permanent rift between them.[2][6] K. A. Thangavelu, S. V. Ranga Rao and S. V. Subbaiah were cast in supporting roles.[3] Vyjayanthimala's mother Vasundhara Devi played her screen mother as well.[7] The final length of the film was 18396 feet.[5]

Themes

Irumbu Thirai focuses on capital-labour relations,[1] and the conditions of working class people.[8]

Soundtrack

The soundtrack was composed by S. V. Venkatraman.[9] The album had Kothamangalam Subbu, Papanasam Sivan and Pattukkottai Kalyanasundaram as the lyricists.[10] The singers consist of T. M. Soundararajan, Thiruchi Loganathan, Sirkazhi Govindarajan, P. Leela, Jikki, (Radha) Jayalakshmi & K. Jamuna Rani.[11] The song "Nenjil Kudiyirukkum" is set in the carnatic raga known as Shanmukhapriya,[12] while the classical-themed "Enna Seidhaalum" is set in Kharaharapriya.[13][14]
