Playback singer Karthik was mistakenly awarded the Kerala State Film Award for Best Singer for the song "Janmandarangalil" which was actually sung by Pradeep Chandrakumar. Music director Ratheesh Vegha has revealed that although Karthik was chosen to sing the song, his rendition did not reach perfection and was replaced by Pradeep Chandrakumar who was to sing the track for this song. Pradeep's version was only included in the film and audio CD which was however credited to Karthik for commercial purposes.[6]


The film is produced by Chettikal Madhavan Edappal, and directed by M. Padmakumar who has previously directed movies like Vaasthavam, Shikar - The Hunt, Ithu Pathiramanal etc.


This movie received average response from the critics and eventually ended up as a box office disaster.
