The scenes where both Vijay and Nandhu characters appear were not done with the traditional matte or masking shots technique, which always involved static shots (where the camera would not move). 'Aalavandhan' took it one step further by not using any static shots for both characters to appear in, and instead went for a motion-control rig to mount the camera on and film these sequences with shifting camera angles. This expensive rig did not exist in India, so it had to be imported from Australia. Filming twice the same sequences with Vijay first and, weeks later, Nandhu next was thus made much easier from both a cinematographic and technical standpoint. This was the 1st time an Indian film used a motion-control rig. See more »
During the chase scene near the climax, there is a point where Nandhu/Abhay does a side-wheelie with his car while Vijay fires at it from his car. In some shots, either the back tire or the front tire of Nandhu's car is not moving at all, even though he is still driving. See more »

A sorry reminder of the terrible state of Indian commercial moviemaking
Avoid it, if you can. A sorry excuse for movie-making and the visual effects are as fragmented as are the director's and Kamal Hassan's perception of art. Watching "Hey Ram" by Kamal Hassan had given me a slim hope that "Abhay" might be decent. However, that was a seriously aberrated perception. It is an effort in sheer futility (actually, the worst sitcoms might even have more substance). Mr. Hassan needs to refrain from using the pen except for signatures (he should not meander into the bylanes of trying to write a psychological novel- unless he wishes to be jeered at). Again, he needs to realize that a deranged patient is not a chimpanzee (not even an orangutan). And as for the director- go back to school- would do him good (especially if he has never been there). Finally, to all who may have enjoyed this movie (if you should call it one), my sincerest apologies- your tolerance, patience, and resolve are simply unsurpassing.
