Abbas (as Kannan) play the role of a rebellious college student in this movie. While, Simran (as Nandhini) acts as his love lady. The first half of the movie is about how Abbas and Simran have their pet fights and then the second half of the movie is about how they both join hands together to fight against her parents' opposition.



The film went through development hell and took a long time to complete. The original producers, MG Pictures, later transferred it to Jayalakshmi Movie Makers owing to financial problems. It was the first film to cast Abbas and Simran together, though VIP (1997), launched much later with both of them, was released earlier.[2]

Abbas and Simran simultaneously also worked on another Telugu project titled Priya O Priya during the making of Poochudava.[3]
