A legal suit was filed against the film's original title of Vaattaakkudi Iraniyan and subsequently the prefix was removed.
The film received mixed reviews upon release, with a critic noting "ironically, the biggest problem with the movie is this emphasis on it being fictitious rather than real". A reviewer from ChennaiOnline.com noted "this is worth a watch. Murali performs with intensity and conviction."
