Production[edit]

Director Kalanjiyam chose to re-collaborate with Murali and Devayani, who he had worked with in his first film Poomani (1996).

Release[edit]

The film won positive reviews upon release, with a critic from Indolink.com noting it was "a soft and sentimental movie largely playing with human emotions, but ineffectively supported by screenplay and direction."[3] The presence of bigger budget film releasing in the same period meant that the film went largely unnoticed at the box office.
