'Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu' is a investigated thriller following Raghavan, a veteran of the Tamil Nadu Police Department as he investigates a series of rapes and brutal murders including those of his boss's family.
As the body count mounts, Raghavan expertly compiles clues and travels across continents to identify the serial killers. However, as soon as the culprits realize that they've been identified, they run and employ extremely evasive tactics while they continue their murderous legacy. Will Raghavan nab the criminals before more lives are lost?
During the shooting, the unit ran into problems after the producer had attempted suicide and as a result, Kamal Haasan wanted to quit the project. Menon subsequently convinced him to stay on as they had taken advance payments.
Actresses Rohini and Andrea Jeremiah dubbed for the voices of female leads Jyothika and Kamalinee Mukherjee respectively.
In 2012, reports stated that the director of this movie Menon would direct the film's Bollywood remake, but were later dismissed.
The film was dubbed in Telugu as "Raghavan" and released on 17 August 2007 to positive reviews. It was also dubbed in Hindi as "The Smart Hunt".
It was one of the first Indian films to make use of Super 35mm technology.
