The film is almost over and I'm here to give the finishing touches," he says. Ramakrishnan, Regional Manager of NFDC, is happy that the film has come out in a beautiful way. "It has the distinct touches of Mahendran. Music is scored by Balabarathi who has tuned some lovely songs. Lenin and V. T. Vijayan are the editors.
