    The very special in this film is background score. Its from our "Maestro" Illayaraja sir.
    First time he is doing International Short film and that is a big credit for my film and i am proud of it. Obviously his wonderful background score gives life to the characters and the film. Especially this time he did music only for International viewers. The music came out International standard and its not in Indian style. The Instruments like Piano, violin, flute and Cello are participate more in his play and gave great feel and mood in the background score.  My grateful respect to him.

    Mr. Sukumar the Cinematographer who  everyone knows him from "Mayna". His fabulous job gave wonderful viewing of the film. Recently he got his Best Cinematographer Award in "Norway International Tamil Film Festival" for the movie "Mayna".
