Her dancing performance in the film was quite sensational during the 40s;the movie went to become a huge hit and Vasundhara was accepted by the Tamil audience. Ranjan was her costar in the movie. 

Vasundhara’s career took a downturn after Mangamma Sapatham.  She was trapped by personal issues and court cases which may have took a toll on her career. At the time of her death, she was not in her best of spirits.
