Vetri Maaran has brilliantly placed the underlying political happenings (in Tamilnadu during 1987), through an interesting scene where Rajan (Ameer) predicts that Jayalalithaa will be the successor of MGR. He also knows clearly what would happen to his people if he allows politicians in his area.
Santhosh Narayanan has composed the music for the film, which has been produced by Wunderbar Film and Lyca Productions. He lifts the film with his brilliant score, especially the King of Sea theme music has been amazingly placed throughout. The film’s editors Venkatesh and Ramar also must be appreciated for packaging the epic gangster saga at a run time of 166 minutes.
