The film tells the story of Shantanu (Dileep), a researcher in Linguistics, and his two friends, Kalpana (Samvritha) and Anuradha (Mamta). Anuradha is the sensitive type who has gone through certain bitter experiences in love. Kalpana is the more capricious one, who is changeable and loves being in love. Anuradha wants to play Cupid and bring Shantanu and Kalpana together; she knows that they care a lot for each other, but for some reason or the other are hesitant to take the next step.
The film uses sync sound recording or live sound recording. Shyamaprasad brought in Sohel Sanwari from Bollywood to record the sound. Says Shyamaprasad, "This is something I’ve always wanted to do. The early talkies had speech recorded live but the change to outdoor locations made carrying recording cameras cumbersome. Added to this was the fact that technicians and stars started travelling and this started the trend of dubbing. I feel that we lose 50 to 60 per cent of the performance when we post-synchronise voices. Take for example a scene on the seashore — our body, voice modulation and mannerisms are in sync with the surroundings. Dubbing in a studio means that a lot of vocal nuances get lost!" Lead player Dileep describes the sync sound recording experience, "I had to memorise the entire dialogues beforehand and deliver them at one go after umpteen rehearsals. It was a very novel experience for me and I personally feel that it increases one’s memory power." Samvrutha Sunil says, "This is my first film where our voices have been recorded live during our respective performances. The sync sound recording actually threw open many challenges - one, you can't console yourself for a not-upto-the-mark performance saying that you can cover it up with a good dubbing and two, you have to byheart the dialogues thoroughly as there is no prompting."
The film was shot completely from Kozhikode. It was Shyamaprasad's first film to be filmed from the city. He says it was his emotional relationship with the city and its calm nature which helped live recording to a great extent, that inspired him to choose Kozhikode as the main locale. Filming was completed in late December 2011.Cinematographer Alagappan says he has experimented a lot with the film, and the film was made in a special "visual tone." The film was shot using a Sony F3 Camera. Sakhi Thomas, who worked with Shyamaprasad in Ritu and Elektra, was the costume designer for this film.
