S Thaman had scored the music while R Madhie cranked the camera. Marthand K Venkatesh was the editor.

Expressing his happiness of the movie being available through the early rental model on Amazon Prime Video, he added, "The film has abundant doses of humour, action, drama and emotions and is a perfect watch in the company of your near and dear." 

Keerthy Suresh shared her happiness on associating with Prime Video yet again with the digital release of Sarkaru Vaari Paata and be entertained by a story that's equally local and relatable. Apart from KGF Chapter 2's dubbed version, Sarkaru Vaari Paata is the first straight Telugu film to arrive early on the platform in the form of early rentals.
