Production[edit]

Escape Artists Motion Pictures announced that they would fund a film to be directed by Rajasekhar, an erstwhile assistant of Ezhil. The film began production in November 2014, with a photo shoot taking place with Vimal, Anjali and Soori.[6] A Scottish pianist, working at A.R.Rahman's KM Music Conservatory, Adam Greig, was selected to portray a foreigner in the film, featuring in comedy scenes alongside Soori.[7] The movie cleared censor board verification and came out with U certificate.[8]

Review[edit]

Times of India gave the movie 3 stars stating " Two warring groups in a village, romance that blossoms between the youngsters in these groups, and a happy ending! Before you say 'Yawn!', here's the news. Mapla Singam is actually not bad. The film seems to have been cut from the same cloth as films like Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam. Sivakarthikeyan has made a career out of these films, and Vemal's attempts have largely gone unnoticed. Perhaps this one could do the magic.".[9]

Soundtrack[edit]

The music was composed by N. R. Raghunanthan.
