Speaking at the launch ceremony, director Koratala Siva said, “The film is set in a forgotten coastal land of India. It’s a very emotional story about how we live in a world that has more monsters than humans, where men are closer to beasts than men. They don't fear God or even death. What do they fear for? Let's wait and see. It's going to be a ride. I promise fans and movie lovers that this going to be my best ever."

The director also heaped praises on his NTR30 crew and said, "To set a great idea, I need a great team and I have these talented people here with me. My brother Anirudh, a man of sound, is excited after I narrate the script. He said I wrote the script with fire and I felt very joyful."
