- Udhayanidhi Stalin generally knows what he is doing – be it production or acting. Red Giant Movies is producing the movie and though it is a family venture, it is a huge endorsement in itself.

- Anirudh – one of the major names associated with the movie has already done his bit by catapulting the movie’s music to stardom.
- The Chennai City Gangsta video has scored brownie points for the movie’s music and Anirudh’s association with Hip-hop Thamizha Aadhi and Hard Kaur has raked up the popularity meter.
- The film received a U certification, endorsing its clean content which is also another huge selling point for commercial movies.
