Payanam has received a great response from the audience - Tamil film lovers are very appreciative of the absence of songs in a two-hour film and satisfied with the suspence-thriller aspect of the film as well as the touch of comedy. Nagarjuna's performance has especially earned some great feedback.

Payanam is produced by Prakash Raj and released worldwide under the banner of Silent Movies. The action-thriller is directed by Radha Mohan. Music is by Mani Sharma.
