Director Lucky said the film has two love stories in contrast to each other. One love story uses the traditional love letter to express love while the second love story uses technology. He said both the love stories have been blended into the narrative and a screenplay has been written.

Producer and lead actor Krishna Kumar said he plays a struggling associate director hailing from a middle-class family who dreams of turning a director. He expresses his love through love letters and Gouthami is paired opposite him.

Gouthami plays a nurse in the film who likes to live in a place which is secluded and away from technology or infrastructure. Why she desires so gives the twist the story, the director said.
