This movie also marks Santhanam's return to pure comedy after a break. He started in Tamil cinema as a comedic sidekick to big stars before becoming a lead actor. However, in his lead roles, action became more prominent, overshadowing comedy. But in 80s Buildup, he's back to his comedy roots, which is a refreshing change.
