The film marked Prabhu Deva's debut as an actor in the leading role, after he appeared in several films in the early 1990s as a dancer.
The film received mixed reviews from critics but became a commercially successful venture at the box office. It was reported that Pavithran was considering making a film titled Mookkuthi Kaasi featuring Sarath Kumar's character from Indhu, and the project started in 1996. However Sarath Kumar was ousted from the project soon after and replaced by Bhaskar Raj, who had appeared in Nethaji. The film, which also featured Kushboo and Roja, was later shelved and unreleased.
The film's release in Malaysia was marred by heavy censorship, with several fight scenes omitted.
The soundtrack of the film composed by Deva, was well received by the audience. During the audio release of Mattuthavani (2010), Deva paid tribute to director Pavithran for giving him the opportunity to score the music for his earlier films like Indhu. The lyrics written by Vaali.
