Trivia:
This movie showcases Kamal Haasan in a rare out-and-out negative role; he played a bloodthirsty vampire, obsessed with immortality.

This is the dubbed Hindi version of the Malayalam horror film Vayanadhan Thamban (1978).

The film was released in theatres in August 1984, then quietly released onto video in 1995.

Joginder bought the Hindi dubbing rights from the producer then changed the film. Joginder shot scenes of himself playing the devil and inserted them into the original film.

Beena Bannerjee who did not act in the original version, was signed to enact one rape scene that was edited into the new dubbed film.
