George of Goodwill Entertainments as producer. It began filming in early April 2017 in Kozhikode. A Santhosh Trophy match sequence was shot at Calicut University Stadium in Thenhipalam, during which Jayasurya injured his right leg, leading to a stay of filming for one week.
Songs and score were composed by Gopi Sundar. The film's audio was released by minister K. T. Jaleel on 28 January 2018, by awarding it to Anitha Sathyan, V. P. Sathyan's wife. As part of the event, a football match between teams Golden 90s led by I. M. Vijayan and Captain Elevens led by Jayasurya was organised at the Safari Ground, Edappal, which was kicked off by C.K. Vineeth.
