Soora Samharam is well known for 2 major action scenes which was based from The Untouchables and Lethal Weapon. The story of the film is based on Peter Weir's 1985 acclaimed drama Witness.

Kamal Hassan planned to follow Soora Samhaaram with big budget film titled Athi Veerapandian in 1992 with himself directing and co-starring actress Iswarya, but dropped the film due to the failure of Singaravelan and decided to do Devar Magan in medium budget instead.

Director Chitra Lakshmanan who previously appeared as Japanese tour guide for Goundamani and Kovai Sarala in Japanil Kalyanaraman (1985) makes a cameo as a doctor who treats Pallavi in the first half of the film.
