The film is the second production of Krishna Sarthak’s Krishna Creations after the 2017 satire Dayavittu Gamanisi and marks the second association of Shiva Rajkumar and Dhananjaya after the 2018 action drama Tagaru. The film was a huge success pan-India and the duo was widely appreciated.

Vijay Milton’s last directorial Goli Soda 2 starring Barath Seeni, Vinoth, Esakki Barath, Samuthirakani, Gautham Menon, and others received mixed reviews. The action-drama, the sequel to the hit movie Goli Soda, dealt with three middle-class boys who strive to establish themselves but end up losing everything when fate plays out.
As a cinematographer, Vijay last worked on Thamira‘s Aan Devathai. His work will next be seen in Balaji Sakthivel‘s delayed Yaar Ivargal and Chimbu Deven‘s anthology Kasada Tabara (the film has six editors, music directors, and cinematographers).
