Bentley Mitchum and Jyothika play the lead roles with Anupam Kher, and Nassar playing supporting roles. The film released in Tamil, English, and Hindi. Pravin Mani composed the music for the project. The film opened to above average reviews and did moderate business at the box office. Despite the release of a Hindi version, the English version was dubbed into Hindi as Chota Johny in 2016.


The film opens with a historical story in which the goddess Parvathi while performing dance with her husband Lord Shiva drops her nose stud (Mookuththi in Tamil) on the Earth and because of which a temple was raised named "Mookuththi Amman temple" in Tamil Nadu. The nose stud has many powers in it and so an evil powered soul named "Kaalabhairavan" / "Kalabhairav" (Prakash Raj) waits one thousand years patiently to capture it.
