Selva who earlier directed 'Karna' with Arjun announced the project in mid-2003. Jyothika was selected to play the lead role uniting with Arjun for second time after Rhythm. P. Vasu, Pasupathi, Ashish Vidyarthi were selected to play villains. There were rumours that film's title would be changed as 'Nanba' but later proved untrue. The film's story happens in a village called Keeripatti where elections were never held for so many years. MGR's hit song 'Mama Mama' has been remixed in this film. Due to financial crisis the film was shelved for sometime and Selva and Arjun went on to do Aanai. During the time, Selva shelved other projects like 'Ma.mu' (with Sathyaraj and Sibiraj) and 'Thotta' (with Jeevan and Priyamani which he later continued) and finished Nenjil with Navdeep. Project was restarted in 2006 with a change of storyline and it was finally completed.
The satellite rights of the film were sold to Raj TV.
