Trivia:
The movie became a breakaway success at the box office despite the resistance from the distributors, and prove to everybody the power and influence of actor Rajinikanth, and the immense love the people of Tamil Nadu have for him.

At the time of its release, there was much controversy surrounding this movie, as the distributors had banned Rajini movies. To resolve the issue, Rajinikanth met Kamal Haasan and the next day, "Uzhaippali" was announced in direct opposition to the edict of the distributors. The film was then released directly in theatres without the support of distributors.

When the shooting was happening in Chickmanglore, the cast and crew refused to book rooms in the hotel they were staying at, because they were denied a discount. This resulted in such chaos that even the lead actor Rajinikanth, the beloved superstar of the masses ended up having to sleep inside a car due to the unavailability of rooms.

"Uzhaippali" marked the comeback of Vijaya Productions who stopped producing for 20 years. This was P Vasu's third collaboration with Rajinikanth after "Panakkaran" and "Mannan".
