Two Songs are Super Hits Especially "Baagilu teredhu" was instant hit with khushboo in rain becoming wet & hot also looking beautiful. Ellu kaanenu nanintha hennanu was next hit song which was picturised on Mahalakshmi & Ananth nag. Remaining songs are average and accepted by the people. CBS - coloumbia took audio rights for this movie and the cassette & gramophone record quality was too good. Later CBS never sold the audio rights to any other company, so till date this movie original audio versions are not available.Quite Unusual for Ananth Nag movies, a steamy song was shot. Khushboo had joked Ananth Nag was probably the only hero, uncomfortable to shake leg with a heroine drenched in rain.
This movie was shot when Ananth Nag, was dejected after a part-time stint with undivided Janatha Party (1983-88) and decided to do movies full-time.
