Director Seeman made a comeback to film direction after taking a sabbatical following the release of Veeranadai in 1999 and began working on a script about a village-based vigilante to be produced by Mid Valley Entertainments. Madhavan heard the script of the film at the insistence of his manager, Nazir, and was impressed with the "fire and confidence" in Seemans narration. He subsequently signed on to work on the film in October 2004. The actor subsequently underwent a makeover for the film, sporting long hair and portrayed a young man from a village for the first time in his career. The team initially approached Asin for the lead female role, but Pooja was eventually signed on to work on the film during December 2004 and collaborated with Madhavan for the second time after Jay 2003.

The film was shot across South Tamil Nadu, with shoots extensively filmed in Karaikudi. Madhavan left the shoot of the film in August 2005 to attend the birth of his child in Mumbai.
