In a review of the film by The Times of India, the reviewer wrote that "cinematographer Sathyan Sooryan’s wide frames, which turn the sun-burnt, unforgiving terrain into a parallel antagonist, make it a film that needs to be savored on the big screen".

His work in the film was well appreciated. He made his Telugu debut with the biographical film Yatra. His work in the Telugu film Dasara (2023) was praised well. He joined in the film's production in 2021. 


In an interview with The Hindu's Sangeetha Devi Dundoo, Sooryan told that "the challenge was to film the day-to-day portions. We had to film some of the sunny portions on monsoon days when the sky was overcast. More than 200 junior artists were involved in some scenes and we could not sit idle and wait for the sun"
