Production[edit]

K. Selva Bharathy, who had previously worked with Vijay in Ninaithen Vandhai and Priyamaanavale, opted to remake the 2001 Telugu hit Nuvvu Naaku Nachav into Tamil with his previous film Priyamaanavale's cast Vijay and Simran. But Sneha was signed on to be a part of the film after becoming one of the Tamil film industry's most sought after actresses during 2001 and 2002.[1] Gayatri Jayaraman was also signed on to play a supporting role.[2]

A song from the film was canned in New Zealand, while filming was also carried out in Ooty, Tamil Nadu[3][4] and scenes were shot at Birla Planetarium and MGM Dizzee world.[5]

Release[edit]

The Hindu gave the film mixed review claiming that "the story may be a retold version — but the screenplay, dialogue and direction are K. Selva Bharathy's", but adds that "the last few scenes are a real drag."[6] Another critic from entertainment portal, Bizhat.com, revealed that "the problem with this film is the weak script and the plot was fairly predictable. Vijay saves the movie from being unbearable".[7] The film opened alongside several prominent films such as the Vikram starrer Dhool and the Kamal Haasan-Madhavan starrer Anbe Sivam.[8]
