Producer Issaki Sundar saw Dushyanth, the son of Ramkumar Ganesan and grandson of Sivaji Ganesan, at the Sivaji Productions office and offered him the opportunity to make his acting debut. After initially rejecting the offer, he ultimately agreed after consulting with his uncle Prabhu and cousin Vikram Prabhu. Dushyanth was also credited as Junior Sivaji during the production of the film. The film was named Success, after the first on screen dialogue of Sivaji from the film Parasakthi (1952).
The film opened to mixed reviews with a critic noting "the movie surprises us with a nice turn of events. It definitely energizes the movie and gets us interested again. Looking back on the first half after this, we realize that the movie has actually been quite clever in setting up stock characters but in a slightly different way that makes the twist surprising." Another reviewer noted "To sum up 'Success' is not the right film for Jr Ganesan to be successful."
