Trivia:
This was the second script written by Renjith for Sibi Malayil after 'Maya Mayooram'. Later they joined again for Ustaad (1999).

One of the highlights of this movie, is a cameo appearance of renowned actor Mohanlal, as a convict who is on death row.

The producer of this movie of the film Siyad Kokker had accused Priyadarshan of remaking it in Tamil without taking his permission or paying for the rights.The Kerala film producers association had banned the screening of all the films of director Priyadarsan in the state. Kokker had alleged Priyadarshan's Tamil film 'Laysa Laysa' is an exact copy of this movie. Priyadarsan refuted by alleging that this movie is a copy of Hollywood films like 'Fiddler On The Roof' and 'Come September'. The matter was later settled out of court.

The soundtrack of this movie was immensely successful both critically and commercially.

Most of the shooting for this movie took place among the forest hills and farms of Ooty (Ootacamund).
