Did you know? The use of the color red in many frames was merely a whim by cinematographer C K Muraleedharan. He thought it would add a nice edgy, pastiche touch to the movie. For the sequence introducing the character of Vinay Pathak, they couldn't find a suitable "red" prop and used tomatoes in the background. Read More

Trivia:
Sheshadri mentions to Vikram in a flashback scene that he used to sell stolen watches back in the 70s and his wife had gifted him a watch in 1972. Dharmendra, who plays the character of Sheshadri, starred in a film in 1972 where his character stole watches. He acted opposite Hema Malini, who's his wife in real life.

This movie has multiple references to Amitabh Bachchan classic Parwana and also shows scenes of a major plot sequence of the movie.

When all the gang members sit together to count money using automatic counting machines, the crew had to use original currency worth INR 25 Lakhs. It was needed because the counting machine automatically detects fake notes and throws them out.

The role of Shardul was initially offered to Irrfan Khan, who couldn't give dates to do the film.

The female voice singing acoustic on tape belongs to Pooja Surti, the editor of the movie. The song ("Mora gora ang layi le") is from Bandini starring Dharmendra, who plays Seshadri in this movie.

The use of the color red in many frames was merely a whim by cinematographer C K Muraleedharan. He thought it would add a nice edgy, pastiche touch to the movie. For the sequence introducing the character of Vinay Pathak, they couldn't find a suitable "red" prop and used tomatoes in the background.
