After directing comedy films like Thai Maaman and Maaman Magal, Guru Dhanapal teams up for the third time with the duo Sathyaraj and Goundamani. Sathyaraj said, "I feel the film will certainly entertain viewers as it will be an out-and-out laugh riot". The director, Guru Dhanapal, said "Sathyaraj gets a maximum mileage of the story with his histrionic and comedy talent".
Sathyaraj pairs with Mantra. Prakash Raj plays a big role and the rest of the cast includes Thilakan, Nassar, Rajan P. Dev, Cochin Haneefa, Ponnambalam, Delhi Ganesh, and a new find Rakesh. Sabesh-Murali composed the film soundtrack and background music, while D. Shankar and R. Suresh Rajhan were the cinematographer and the editor respectively.
The film has completed and was ready for the release, and at this time, the LIC Housing Finance has taken the film to court. The official had stated that Stanley P. Rajan and his associates, who jointly produced the film, had cheated the company of Rs. 50.39 lakhs. According to him, Mr Rajan had obtained a housing loan of Rs. 25 lakhs by submitting fake address and false particulars in his application. His associates too applied for and availed themselves of the loan using a similar modus operandi. After obtaining the housing loans, they diverted the sum for film production without using for building houses.
