This film's title was chosen with refernce to the song 'Vathikuchi Pathikadhuda' from Murugadoss's first directorial venture "Dheena".

Murugadoss's brother Dhileepan made his debut with this urban thriller.

This film saw the debut of director Kinslin.

To kindle interest, director Kinslin got his hero Dileepan to ride a share auto in the suburbs of Chennai. As the protagonist in his film is a share auto driver, this strategy didn't look out of place, and even worked to the advantage of the film. With the team sharing interesting tidbits about the film with those who hopped on to the share auto, it was a technique that was well thought out.
