Kaththi is one of the milestone movies in the careers of Ilayathalapathy Vijay and director AR Murugadoss. The movie strengthened the markets of both the actor and director giving a way to open doors for receiving more love from other movie industries. The movie, although made in a commercial format, has received wide applause from the fans, audiences, and critics for the subtle social message included in the movie.
Vijay played a dual role in the movie and Samantha Akkineni is the heroine. Later, the movie was remade in Telugu too with Megastar Chiranjeevi playing the lead role. The film is Khaidi no.150, which marked the comeback of Chiranjeevi into movies.
Lyca Productions bankrolled the project. Despite several controversies hitting the movie, the makers didn't lose confidence and went ahead with the release of the movie to score a hit.
