The film was shot in Chennai, National Highway 45, Thiruporur, and Tiruvanamalai.[3]


Devendran composed four songs for the film.[3]


The Deccan Chronicle wrote that "As a director, he [Maran] has extracted the best, be it from Dheesha, Tara and other newcomers. Imman Annachi performs well. But as an actor, Maran needs to hone his skills. The screenplay gets a bit preachy at times; nevertheless, the intension to impart a good message is obvious".[4]
