The Tamil version of the movie is open for sale, but the Star Group has no interest in the rights of the Tamil version, ‘Namadhu‘.
The film grossed 68 lakhs on day one, not a great figure for a Mohanlal movie but when we consider the fact that it is a dubbed movie, the collection is decent enough.

The film, which is the first release of Mohanlal in 2016, has won the hearts of audience as well as received critical acclamation too. It is one of the few dubbed movies which received excellent reports in Kerala.
The film has Gautami in the female lead. It is a journey of four people at different phases in their life: childhood, youth, and adulthood. The movie is a family entertainer with some thrilling suspense. Another specialty of the film is that Mohanlal and Gautami are teaming after a gap of 18 years since ‘Iruvar’ of Maniratnam. Malayalam Actress Urvashi is also doing an important role in the film produced by Sai Korrapatti Productions under the banner Varahi Chalana Chitram.
