Did You Know?

Trivia

The image or presence of a cobra often serves as a lucky mascot in Rajinikanth's films. Despite this film being replete with nods to the Super Star's career and persona, no such standout depiction of this mascot is made, although there are at least two nods to it: Kaali (Rajinikanth) teasing his hostel colleague by shouting "Paambu paambu!" (Snake! Snake!) on a couple of occasions, and Jithu (Vijay Sethupathi) wearing piece of jewelry with a cobra design. In the deleted song sequence called 'Thappad Maara', Jithu is also shown doing a cobra-themed dance. See more »

Goofs

The 'Smoking Kills' disclaimer in Tamil has a wrong spelling. The word 'Kollum' which means 'kills' in English is misspelled as 'Kollugum'. See more »
