    The film was shot extensively in the forests of Thanjavur, Mysore and Sathyamangalam. Actress Shammu was the only professional actress to be cast in the film and Sunil Kumar prepared for his role by standing for hours under the sun to sport a tan as well as learning the basics of different forms of martial arts. It became the actress's final film before she left the film industry to complete her education. Members of the Irula tribe also acted in the film.


    The film was widely appreciated by critics though it was not released in many theaters. The film was privately screened in Norway a week later and was prepared for a theatrical release in the country shortly after, with the makers claiming it would be the first Tamil film to be released in regular cinema halls across Norway. The film was screened at the Norway International Film Festival and then subsequently at the 10th International Tamil Film Festival in Canada in 2012. It has won the best social awareness movie in Norway international film festival.


    Ved Shanker Sugavanam is the debudant music director. All the lyrics where written by M.Senthamizhan. There are five tracks in the film.
