Following the release of Kidaari (2016), M. Sasikumar announced that he would produce and star in a film to be directed by newcomer Prakash. The film began its shoot in Theni in the middle of September 2016.[1] Kovai Sarala and Sangili Murugan were signed on to play supporting roles, before actress Tanya was signed on to play the lead female role.[2] Darbuka Siva and Ravi were signed on as music composer and cinematographer, respectively. Ravi used Red Weapon 8K for the first time in Tamil film industry.[3][4]

The film was reported to be titled Alapparai, before the title Balle Vellaiyathevaa was confirmed in November 2016.[5][6]



Film critic Baradwaj Rangan wrote, "There’s no effort in any department of filmmaking, and we’re just left with the sight of M Sasikumar angling for an easy B/C-centre hit. No one can grudge him that, and not every film can be a Subramaniapuram, but is a little quality control too much to expect?"[7]
