Padmini. Padmini was created by the Indian author K. Subrahmanyam and appeared in the film Manasamrakshanam (1944).

Padmini is a Burmese war refugee who comes to Madras with a group of teenage girls. Their goal is to locate a cell of Japanese spies, but Padmini also encounters Diraviyam, an Indian call girl who is working for the Japanese as a spy. Padmini uses Diraviyam to discover the details of a Japanese plot to blow up some British ships in Madras harbor, a scheme which Padmini foils.
