Debut film of director Navdeep Singh
This movie is based on Chinatown (1974) by Roman Polanski, with the basic premise being similar to the original, despite changes in the representation of characters and some key plot points. In a cinema-noir style, the makers of Manorama Six Feet Under acknowledge the inspiration from the original by playing the sequence where Jack Nicholson's character gets his nose slashed on the main character's (Satyaveer) television.
Gul Panag was selected for the role of Nimmi based on her performance in the critically acclaimed Dor (2006).
Raima Sen who plays the role of Sheeetal is the daughter of legendary actress Suchitra Sen. She is said to resemble her grandmother much more than either her mother or her sister.
The movie was not a commercial success but has since acquired a cult following.
