Trivia:
The music director, Ilaiyaraaja had originally composed the number Valayosai for one of his studio albums, and included it in this movie only upon Kamal Haasan's insistence. As luck would have it, Kamal Haasan's intuition proved true and the song became an overwhelming hit, enriching the overall success of the movie.

This movie was a blockbuster hit which successfully completed a 150-day run in theatres.

This movie marked the directorial debut of Suresh Krishna.

This movie was remade from the Hindi film "Arjun" (1985).
