In February 2012, Vijay announced his desire to remake his father S. A. Chandrasekhar's 1981 political drama Sattam Oru Iruttarai under his new production house of Ghilli Films and signed on Vikram Prabhu, son of actor Prabhu, to feature in the film. The lead actresses signed were Karthika Nair and Piaa Bajpai, both of whom had appeared together in K. V. Anand's Ko, while newcomer Sneha, a visual communications graduate, was signed on as director. Despite early reports that Meena would be approached to play a role, Reemma Sen was subsequently signed on to play the powerful character of the police officer in the film, her first role after her marriage, while C. J. Rajkumar and Vijay Antony were announced as cinematographer and music composer of the project respectively. The film continued its shoot in Pondicherry in May 2012.
In June 2012, Vikram Prabhu revealed that he had trouble accommodating the film as his previous venture Kumki required the climax to be re-shot and thus asked the team to temporarily stall the project til October 2012 or find a new actor. Chandrasekhar went on to clarify that alternatives were being considered and the team were hoping to rope in either one of the actors Aadhi, Arun Vijay or Vishnu as a replacement or to pick a debutant. In mid June 2012, Chandrasekhar revealed that Vikram Prabhu had finally opted out of the project and following his departure, Karthika Nair had also pulled out as a result. Newcomer Arjun was first reported to have signed on to play the lead role, while Thananya, previously seen in Kunguma Poovum Konjum Puravum (2009), was also reported to have been roped in to replace Karthika. However this proved untrue, with Sneha confirming that newcomer Thaman Kumar would replace Vikram Prabhu, while Bindu Madhavi would also form a part of the final cast.
After the film re-began in July 2012, the title was changed from Sattam Oru Iruttarai to Thozhan and supporting actors Radha Ravi and Suresh were added to the cast. However, as of December 2012, the original title is being used.

Sneha Britto has many years ahead of her and should treat this as an opportunity that not many are provided with. ". CNN-IBN wrote:"Thaman Kumar showed signs of confidence, but struggled overall to deliver a satisfying performance.".
