The film uses ABBA's "Money, Money, Money" as the background song to mark Devadevan's transition as the Mafia king.

For the first time Biju Menon appeared in a Shaji Kailas film.

Devayani appeared in just three scenes in the entire movie.

Though was heroine, Ramya Krishnan appeared in just one song and three scenes, hardly having any dialogues.

It was basically the lack of a strong story and screen play that led to the failure.

This is the only script that T.Damodaran wrote for Shaji Kailas.
