Despite being a Telugite, Vishal debuted in Tamil films. His films like Bharani, Pandemkodi, Pogaru were dubbed into Telugu and became hits in Andhra Pradesh. The latest among these are 'Bhayya'. Though the film was produced and dubbed into Telugu simultaneously along with its Tamil original Malaikottai, the Telugu version was postponed a week due to some technical difficulties.
The Tamil version got a very good opening boosting the confidence of its producer and director that the Telugu version will also be a hit. However, the film opened with an above average success after release. Director Bhoopathy Pandiyan succeeded in making of the film a good comedy in the first half and in making the film a commercial entertainer.
