Govindamurthy, who had previously directed Karuppusamy Kuththagaithaarar (2007) and Vedigundu Murugesan (2009), approached the producers with a script and they readily agreed to produce the venture after listening to his narration. He revealed that the team signed on Senthil Kumar and Ishara Nair to work on the film, as the team could not afford bigger stars and cold not afford to wait for their dates. The songs of the film were released in March 2014.
The film opened to poor reviews in July 2014, with a critic from Sify.com noting that the film "is a crude and crass comedy laced with sentiments", adding the "film lacks technical finesse and is difficult to sit through". New Indian Express wrote "The first half with its crude comedy, jarring at times, leads one to believe that the film would be a mindless comic caper. But the latter part makes up for it, taking a total about-turn" praising the message of the film.
