The movie has huge star cast which includes Narain, Sneha, Thangar and Shreya Reddy in the cast. Music is by Bharadwaj.

According to Thangar, "It is very rare to come across movies that speak about the school, where we gain our initial knowledge. Pallikoodam deals in detail about the sweet moments shared in school. It is a temple where men and women are molded as good future citizens of the country".

Music by Bharadwaj is another major highlight of the movie. Since the movie deals about different periods, Bharadwaj has used instruments which were prevalent in respective periods.

Sneha, who teams up with Thangar for the first time says, "The movie is a realistic attempt. I thank Thangar for giving me meaty role to play. It is indeed very rare for an actress to come across such roles".

Summing up, Thangar says, "I vouch that the movie would be certainly different from the run-of-the-mill stuffs. It is a film that would touch the hearts of common man".
