Continuity
When Akilan rings up the Bihari gang leader's mobile, the battery is full. When he meets Dinesh, the battery is very low and then suddenly changes to full again.

Errors in Geography
When the lead actors are said to travel to Ukraine, it is obvious that the shooting actually took place in Albania.
Trivia:
This was the first Indian film to adopt performance capture technology for some of the action scenes.

Identical twin kids were needed for the film. In order to get the kids in good mood, the entire crew were forced to wait for 2 whole days to shoot a clip that would appear for just 6 seconds.

Doctors were consulted during the shoot on the medical intricacies and psychology related to conjoined twins.
