Iravin Nizhal stars Parthiban in the lead. It also features Varalakshmi Sarathkumar, Priyanka Ruth, Brigida Saga, Sneha Kumar, Anand Krishnan and Chandru. AR Rahman has composed music for the film. AR Rahman earlier described Parthiban as a "passionate filmmaker and performer."
He had said, "I was enthralled by his enthusiasm for film and his willingness to attempt new things, new words, and new ideas for the score. So, when he mentioned it would be filmed in one take, I imagined it would be something special. He also took me through the entire rehearsal. When I first reviewed the movie, I was blown away by his ability to accomplish so much. And there was a huge difference between what I saw at the rehearsal and what he shot. He's a fascinating artist to collaborate with."
