It stars Kamal Haasan, Prabhu and Amala in lead roles and Sasikala and Kushboo in supporting roles. It was a blockbuster and completed 175-day run at the box office. This movie is loosely based on The Bourne Identity.
The film is heavily inspired by the novel The Bourne Identity, written by Robert Ludlum in 1980; however, the story deviates from Ludlum's plot in the second half of the movie. Hindi actor Salim Ghouse debuted as villain Jindha and dubbed his own voice. Kamal Haasan wore a false moustache throughout the film since he was filming Indrudu Chandrudu (Telugu) and Chanakyan (Malayalam) at the same time, in which both film required non-moustached roles for many scenes. It was dubbed in Telugu as Vijethalu and released in 1989.
