Trivia:
One of the highlights of this movie is that one of its tracks was sung by iconic actor, Kamal Haasan.

After the release of 'Pattiyal' whose theme was the same as 'Pudupettai' (dwelling on gangsters in Chennai), Selvaraghavan wanted to re-do many of the scenes to make them look fresh and new, hence the release of this movie had to be delayed. The re-recording was done in Bangkok, with everyone involved working overtime.

This film was dubbed into Telugu and released under the title 'Dhoolpeta'.

This movie holds the distinction of being the first Indian film to be shot in the Super 35 format.
