Neengal Kettavai was a detour to what Balu Mahendra was doing but he did take the usual vengeance story in his style. And casting Thiagarajan and Banu Chander was even a bigger detour for the director and it did fetch good response from the audience. The movie was a box-office hit and it was said that Balu Mahendra made the movie to prove to the critics that he can make commercial cinema.

When Ilaiyaraaja gets a movie that has a musician in it, he runs riot with his music. The innovative use of percussion in Adiye Manam Nilluna is widely known but there is an electronic brilliance that is hiding behind the other beautiful songs like Pillai Nila, Kanavu Kaanum and Oh Vasantha Raja.
