Trivia:
Shooting commenced at Chennai and the unit then moved on to locations in Kuttralam, Ooty, Andhra Pradesh, Utter Pradesh, and Bihar, Some scenes were shot on the lead pair in the forest areas of Kerala which was also the location for a song shot on Vikram. Again, a lavish set was erected at the AVM Studios where Vikram, Anita, and new-face Shreya took part. The film was heavily shot in Orissa, while songs were canned in Syria.

Malayalam actor Kollam Thulasi was signed up to play a negative role in the film and thus made his debut in Tamil films.

Simran first approached to play a pivotal role in the movie, but Jaya Seel, who appeared alongside Prabhu Deva in "Pennin Manathai Thottu", was roped in to play a medical student.

North Indian model Anita Hassanandani was selected to make her debut through the film, though another film, Varushamellam Vasantham, ended up releasing before "Samurai".

Originally launched in 2000, the film went through production delays and was only released in July 2002, when it opened to mixed reviews and an average response at the box office.
