The film was well-received by the box office collection as well. Meanwhile, another notable film released by Sreenivasan and Sathyan Anthikkad was Ponmuttayitunnu Tharavu. Srinivasan had said that Mohanlal was initially cast in the film. The actor revealed this on a program on Kairali TV.
The actor later revealed how the character came to him. Sreenivasan says that screenwriter Raghunath Paleri decided to cast Mohanlal in the lead role in the story of the duck in Ponmutta. I was cast in it as Jayaram, who later returned from Dubai.
When asked if he could do the role for Sreeni, I agreed. And I would love to be a character in any story that is as interesting as this. But for some reason, Raghu could not direct the film. Then it was years later that Sathyan Anthikkad heard this story and Pullai became interested.
According to Raghu, Sathyan Anthikkad wanted to make Mohanlal the hero. So there was a lot of discussion about this written script. Innocent hears this story as he goes along. Then Innocent said. It does not seem that Mohanlal needs to play the role of That in this film. Because it has a chance to become a heavyweight. Because of all the roles, Mohanlal has played till then, it was doubtful whether the presence of such a person would be a heavyweight. Because if people expect more from a movie like this, it will hurt the movie.
