Soundtrack was composed by Ilaiyaraaja. Lyrics were by Gangai Amaran.[3][4] Anand was the first Tamil film since the 1950s where Lata Mangeshkar sang; she performed without taking remuneration out of respect for Prabhu's father Sivaji Ganesan.[5]

The Indian Express wrote, "As both lovers belong to the upper class, the décor of the interiors is modish. G.OR. Nathan's photography accentuates this effect: the soft and diffuse lighting gives the film a classy texture".[6] Kalki gave the film a more mixed review.[7]
