Trivia:
This will be second movie that both Anu Mohan and Vishnu Raghav are seen in after their debut film 'Orkut Oru Ormakoot'.

Debutant actress Shikha Nair was chosen as the female lead, as the director felt it would be a great opportunity for the film to showcase a new actress. Shikha is a Chennai based model, who is being prepared for a Tamil debut, starts her career in acting through this film.

The movie was heavily criticised for its strong advocation of capital punishment, a jab at rarest-of-rare-case arguments, and a tirade against rights activists.

The film is loosely based on two sensational murders that happened in Bangalore - the 2003 B. V. Girish murder case which the film begins off with and 2005 BPO employee Pratibha rape and murder case.
