Directed by Magizh Thirumeni, Thadam had Arun Vijay play dual roles for the first time in his career alongside Smruthi Venkat, Tanya Hope, and Vidya Pradeep as the female leads with the film going on to draw praise for its intense plot.

With Thadam turning out to be a success, there were talks about a remake with the Telugu rights going on to be acquired by Sravanthi Ravi Kishore sometime back.
