Soundtrack[edit]

The soundtrack for the film was composed by Bappi Lahiri and Koti of the duo Raj-Koti. In some CDs, music maestro A. R. Rahman's name is wrongly credited as music director. But, he did only the background score for the film. The soundtrack featured six songs, all sung by S. P. Balasubrahmanyam and K. S. Chithra.

Raj-Koti duo was initially signed on to compose the background score. They called in their former assistant A. R. Rahman (who had by then risen to fame in Tamil with Roja), for assistance. When Rahman helped them in the major part of programming, they suggested Rahman himself to do the whole score. Hence, Rahman composed the whole score, and accepted no fee for this.
