After meeting Thatha, he falls in love. Vasu discovers that Raj is the assassin who assassinated his father’s landlord. Raj is eventually imprisoned.

Dileep and Anoop produced the film under the name of Grand Production. The film was financially successful—one of the highest-grossing films in 2005—and developed a cult following.

The film was released on July 4, 2005. The plot revolves around Malayali Bhuvana Chandran (Dileep), a failed businessman who is deeply in debt, as he becomes involved in a property dispute in Tamil Nadu between two powerful landlords, Pandi Durai (Prakash Raj) and Karuppayya Swami (Rajan P. Dev).

T. A. Shahid wrote the narrative, and Shaji Kailas directed the film, which Antony Perumbavoor produced under Aashirvad Cinemas. Mohanlal plays Anwar Ali/Ali Bhai, the undisputed market supremo and protector of the impoverished in Kozhikode Palayam.

The character was inspired by Ali Bappu, a real-life guy who used to live in Kondotty.

Navya was chosen as her screen name by director Sibi Malayil because he thought Dhanya was improper for an actress.
