Sees the return of Director Hariharan, Actor Mammootty and Script Writer M.T. Vasudevan Nair after two decades. Their last movie Oru Vadakkan Veeragatha (1989) was a huge hit and also bagged several awards in the national level.
The production of this movie went over two and a half years which is quite long for a Malayalam movie which normally doesn't take longer than 6 months. There were several troubles that delayed the production. Many magazines wrote that the movie was jinxed and that it would never get released. The Director, Hariharan, faced several obstacles to finally complete the film.
