Set in a college campus, the film explored many of the cliches typical of the genre but newcomer Murali made the experience memorable with his work. Be it romancing Kuyili with Ilaiyaraja's chartbuster Athadi Paavadai Kathada, or going on an emotional roller-coaster, or even beating up his father's evil henchmen, Murali proved that he has what it took to be an actor in mainstream Tamil cinema.
Director Ameerjahn's debut movie happened to be the first film of Kannada director Siddhalingiah's son as well. The fact that Ameerjahn was the protege of K Balachander was an added bonus. The movie won him rave reviews, and proved to be an ideal debut vehicle.
