Pudhupettai will be rated among the 10 best gangster films written in Tamil cinema, the film was directed by Selvaraghavan in the year 2006 which featured his brother Dhanush in the lead, and Sneha and Sonia Agarwal in the lead female roles. The film, with music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja and cinematography by Arvind Krishna, Selvaraghavan's usual crew members. It had an average run when it got released but later people enjoyed it and gave it a cult status. After 14 years of its release, makers of Pudhupettai have now released the video song of Oru Naalil. The song wasn’t shot by the team so they have made a video combining some of the finest scenes from the film. Pudhupettai was also the first Tamil film to be shot in Super 35 mm instead of the Cinemascope format, as well as the first to be released in digital format. Yuvan Shankar Raja received rave reviews for both the songs and the film score, which is considered to be one of his best works. The music gained immense popularity among the masses, especially among the youth, topping the Tamil music charts in the following weeks of its release. Oru Naalil will be among Yuvan’s best composition. He has also sung the song himself.  
We had already reported that director Selvaraghavan’s next film would be starring Dhanush in the lead role, under the production of Kalaipuli S Thanu’s V Creations. The brothers duo have a cult fan following, thanks to their classic films, including Kaadhal Kondein, Pudhupettai, and Mayakkam Enna. Selvaraghavan, few months back during a recent interaction at a college cultural event, had revealed that his next would be with Dhanush and more importantly, he has revealed that it will be Pudhupettai 2. “People have been asking me about my next film after NGK. My next after NGK would be with Dhanush. We were discussing what script to do and we thought Pudhupettai 2 will be apt.” Selvaraghavan has also been working on other scripts, so we may not know if is his film with Dhanush would be Pudhupettai 2 or something else.
