Trivia:
The film marks Sivaji Ganesan's screen debut.

The film faced controversy because of its portrayal of Brahmins and Hindu customs and practices in a negative light. The elitarian society including the then ruling State government even demanded the film be banned.

Poet Kannadasan makes an uncredited appearance as a judge in the film.

Producer A. V. Meiyappan nearly dropped Sivaji Ganesan from the film because he was dissatisfied with his performance and dialogue delivery. It was "Arignar" C. N. Annadurai, who convinced Meiyappan to keep Ganesan in the film.

Actress Rajasulochana was initially cast as the female lead, but had opted out due to her pregnancy, and was eventually replaced by Sriranjani Jr.
