The song Nenjukulle was performed by Sakthishree Gopalan in MTV Unplugged. The song went viral and people eagerly awaited the film’s release as it was a A.R. Rahman and Mani Ratnam combo. The film did not do well at the box office as many did not like the picturization of the songs. The film was one of the very few failures of Mani Ratnam.
