Production[edit]

Kamal is directing Mammootty after nine years.[7] PS Rafeeque approached Mammootty with the script at the set of the movie Bhaskar The Rascal, on the spot the actor was giving him the date and suggesting to tell the story to the director Kamal. As soon as Kamal heard the story, he agreed to commit the project.[8] Director Kamal said in an interview that, "Animals, birds and even statues will voice their opinion in Utopiayile Rajavu,".[9] It was Mammootty who recommended Jewel Mary for the heroine.[10]

Film was launched in Kochi on 18 May 2015 during which sewing machines were donated to women from tribal communities.[11] The shoot started at Thodupuzha, Kerala, in May 2015.[12] The film was also shot in Trivandrum.[13]

The film's music is composed by Ouseppachan and all lyrics are written by PS Rafeeque. The audio launch was held at Ernakulam on 2 August 2015.[14] The first song released was "Uppinu Pona Vazhiyethu".[15][16]
