Actor Vijayakumar decided to produce a film with Rajinikanth as the lead actor. Rajinikanth suggested Mahendran be the director. The film was an extended version of "Munithayi", the third segment of the 1975 Kannada Portmanteau film Katha Sangama by Puttanna Kanagal. Rajinikanth who played the antagonist role in the original played the hero in the remake. Mahendran wrote the screenplay with slight changes in the script. Mahendran's routine crew Ilaiyaraaja, Ashok Kumar and the editing duo B. Lenin – V. T. Vijayan were recruited for the film.
The film was released on 15 June 1984. In an interview to Maalai Malar, Vijayakumar, the film's co-producer, had mentioned that he was not satisfied with the climax of the film, as he felt the fans would not accept the Rajinikanth's lead pair getting raped. However, Mahendran was reluctant to change the climax that the original film had.
