A Communist Confession.
Filming Locations:
The film eventually went on to receive Best Film and Best Actor for Prakash Raj at the 55th National Film Awards. Priyadarshan Nair won the zenith Asia award for best director for this film.

It was also shown at the Silk Screen Asian American Film Festival in Pittsburgh.

The film opened at the 33rd Toronto International Film Festival on 12 September 2008.

The film was initially announced to be made in Malayalam as Kancheepuram, with Mohanlal in the lead and music composed by A. R. Rahman. Later the project was called off due to Mohanlal's busy schedule with other projects.

The story is set in the silk weavers' town of Kanchipuram, in post-independence India, though the film was shot mainly in Mysore.
