This movie was conceptualised by Jayendra Panchapakesan, a pioneer in the South Indian ad film industry. Along with him a number of leading technicians participated in the creation of this film, namely H. Sridhar - Audiography, P.C. Sreeram - Cinematography, Rajeevan - Art Direction, and Satissh Kurosowa - Editing, which has awed South Indian audiences.

For the filming of this movie, digital capture quality of the Red One camera and high-quality, uncompressed, six track surround sound were used to deliver audio clarity and audio mixing finesse that carnatic music audiences have not experienced in a live concert so far.

This film is considered significantly as it is considered to the first of its kind in the Carnatic music world.
