The psychological thriller opened to unanimously positive reviews from critics and movie goers alike and is also doing well in countries like USA and Australia.
Without a doubt, the ultimate reason for the movie to generate so much of accolades is its strong script and intriguing screenplay.
Hence, not surprisingly, Thani Oruvan has already been eyed by Telugu and Hindi filmmakers who have expressed their interest to bag the remake rights of the flick.

Interestingly, it is being said that plans are on to rope in M Raja to direct the Hindi version of Thani Oruvan. If everything goes well, the Jayam director could well be making his Hindi debut with Salman Khan in the lead.
Also the latest buzz has it that top Telugu actors are being approached to reprise the roles originally portrayed by Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swamy.
