    Reports emerged in August 2005 that Suriya and Jyothika would come together for a project titled Jillendru Oru Kadhal based on a real life story which formed the script of A. C. Durai, while newcomer Krishna would direct it. The team signed up A. R. Rahman to compose the film's music while Asin was selected for another key role in the film after her successful pairing with Suriya in Ghajini. However, by the time the film was launched in December 2005, Bhumika Chawla had replaced Asin.

    The film was shot extensively in Rajamundari, Vizag, with some portions in Mumbai, Coimbatore and Chennai, while a song was shot in Switzerland masquerading it as New York. Initially touted as an August 2006 release, the film was delayed to avoid a clash with Jyothika's other film Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu.She was nominated for Best Actress Category at Filmfare Awards for both of the Films "Sillunu Oru Kaadhal" & Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu.


    The satellite rights of the film were sold to Kalaignar TV. The film was censored on 4 September 2006 and was given with a "U/A" certificate, with some dialogue muting. The film opened across 207 screens worldwide on 8 September 2006, three days before the wedding of the lead pair Suriya and Jyothika. The film received a large opening, and became a superhit at boxoffice . Critics primarily labelled the film as a disappointment as a result of the high levels of publicity it received prior to release. The Hindu gave the film a negative review, claiming that "The most talked about movie of the year, Studio Green's "Sillunu Oru Kadhal" featuring Suriya and Jyotika, arrives only to disappoint", further stating, "it lacks a strong cohesive script to bind the elements".

    The film was later dubbed and released in Telugu as Nuvvu Nennu Prema.


    The film features a soundtrack composed by A. R. Rahman with lyrics penned by Vaali. The music for the film was released on 2 August 2006 by K. M. Musiq and a day later in India by Star Music. The music was highly appreciated. The songs "Munbe Vaa" and "New York Nagaram" were chart toppers on the Tamil music channels and radio. Especially, "New York Nagaram" was termed as one of the best efforts by Rahman. He won the Filmfare Best Music Director Award for the soundtrack and Shreya Ghoshal won the Filmfare Best Female Playback Award (Tamil) and Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Female Playback for the song "Munbe Vaa". The Telugu version of the album was titled Nuvvu Nenu Prema.
