Caarthick Raju stated \\\"For 14 years, I have been involved in visual effects and computer graphics for several films. Then came a stage when I wanted to do something more creative. With encouragement from my friend, cinematographer Velraj, I started writing scripts and learning about direction. When the time was right, I approached S. P. B. Charan for whom I had earlier worked on visual effects, and he showed a keen interest in the concept I had built into my script. The director stated that the film is about a son extracting revenge for his father\\\'s death and that the story is \\\"how hide-and-seek continues to be played in adulthood when a thief and a cop come head-to-head\\\". While Dinesh was signed to play the son, \\\"a carefree boy with no responsibilities\\\" who later becomes a police offer, Rajesh was cast as the father. Dinesh was reported to appear in four looks and was trained by a constable friend to get his body language right for the policeman\\\'s role. Iyshwarya was signed to play the role of a college student, whose father is a sub-inspector.
The team travelled to Kodaikanal to shoot a duet song featuring Dinesh and Iyshwarya. It was shot in a few hilly locations, about 25 km away from Kodaikanal. Vijay Sethupathi has danced for the Kuthu number, \\\"Ennoda Vaa (kutthaattam Podu)\\\" from the film. The song was shot at Kerala House, near VGP in Chennai.
The film\\\'s soundtrack was composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja. The album features five tracks and was released on 10 July 2014 at Sathyam Cinemas, Chennai. The song \\\"Moodupanikkul\\\" was one of the song originally composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja for the film Aaranya Kaandam that was also produced by S. P. Charan and that eventually released without any songs. Besides Charan two Airtel Super Singer contestants, Hariharasudhan and Pooja Vaidyanath, had also sung for Thirudan Police\\\'s soundtrack.
