Nidhi Prasad managed to convince Srikanth to feature in the film, despite the failure of their previous venture together. Prabhu Deva accepted to play a role in the film, without having listened to the story, while Charmy Kaur was signed to play the leading female role. The team primarily shot scenes in outdoor locations, but could not shoot abroad as a result of Nidhi Prasad's fear of flying. The team held an audio launch event in March 2008 with Suresh Babu, Nithin and Bhumika Chawla attending as chief guests.

The film opened to mixed reviews in April 2008. Indiaglitz.com gave the film a negative review and stated "the director failed to utilise the talents of most of the artistes by scripting casual comedy scenes all through the film", while adding he also "failed to establish many characters in the film and the audiences had to grope in the dark as to how a character had appeared on the screen and it takes time to correlate that character with the scene". Sify.com stated "there is originality and strength in the story, narration and direction", but, "the movie's length is a bit too much full with three hours" and "this will sure work against the movie's prospects".
