Trivia:
It was dubbed in Telugu as "Vijethalu" and 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 movie was a blockbuster, and successfully completed a 175-day run in theatres.

This was the first of two Tamil movies to be filmed in the 70mm format; the other was "Amaran" (1992).

Veteran Hindi actor Salim Ghouse debuted as villain Zindha in this movie and dubbed his own voice.

Kamal Haasan wore a false moustache throughout this movie since he was filming "Indrudu Chandrudu" (Telugu) and "Chanakyan" (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" (1980) written by Robert Ludlum, though the story deviates from Ludlum's plot in the second half.
