Trivia:
Like Pandiraj's debut film 'Pasanga,' 'Marina' too revolves around children, focusing on street-children at Chennai's Marina beach, who peddle snacks and knick-knacks to survive. The film is said to be inspired from Mira Nair's critically acclaimed 1988 Hindi film 'Salaam Bombay!'

One of the lead actors in this film, Siva Karthikeyan, is a popular Tamil Anchor, who made his debut in a lead role, with this movie.
