Trivia:
The 1989 blockbuster flick 'Vetri Vizhaa' is being re-released in 2017.

'Vetri Vizhaa' was dubbed in Telugu as "Vijethalu" and was released in 1989.

The story was of an amnesiac who struggles to find his past after memory loss. Salim Ghouse played the villain role.

This was only the second of Kamal Haasan's movie to beat the ten-year record of INR 5.4 crore set by "Thirisoolam".

This was the first of two Tamil movies to be filmed in the 70 mm format.

Veteran Hindi actor Salim Ghouse makes his debut as a villain Zindha in this movie and had dubbed for his own voice.

Kamal Haasan wore a false moustache throughout this movie since he was filming "Indrudu Chandrudu" in Telugu and "Chanakyan" in Malayalam at the same time, both of which required him to be clean-shaven.

The story of this movie is heavily inspired by "The Bourne Identity novel" which was written by Robert Ludlum.
