After the success of the film Suriyan, Sarath Kumar teamed up with the same team, consisting of director Pavithran, cinematographer Ashok Kumar and editor duo B. Lenin and V. T. Vijayan, for the second time.
The film opened to mixed reviews, with a critic noting "Pavithran's direction lacks direction" and that "the only saving grace is the music of Illayaraja ; a couple of songs are really melodious and lilting tunes, and the background music is commendable, as is the photography of Ashok Kumar and the editing skills of Lenin and Vijayan". He added that the film is "technically well made and lavishly mounted, but fails to grip the viewer in any way."
The film score and the soundtrack were composed by film composer Ilaiyaraaja. The soundtrack, released in 1993, features 5 tracks with lyrics written by Vaali.
