Sarvam Thaala Mayam marks the return of well-known cinematographer Rajiv Menon as a director, after close to two decades. He had last directed the romantic family drama Kandukondein Kandukondein which made it to the theatres in 2000. The film starred Ajith, Mammootty, Aishwariya Rai, Tabu and Abbas.
Sarvam Thaala Mayam is touted to be a musical based on the life of a Dalit singer working his way up in life, the film has music by AR Rahman. In a recent interview to FirstPost, GV Prakash spoke about the film, saying "With Sarvam Thaala Mayam, I'm sure about reaching the next degree of good performance. Because this film revolves around the travel of a young boy who is a musician. So there will be a lot of changeovers and variations. It will be a different experience for South Indian moviegoers. It has five tracks by AR Rahman sir and is really an excellent album to look forward to."
