Plot
The story is inspired from a real-life incident in 1987 when a group posing as CBI raided a jewelry showroom in Mumbai and stole money from there. All the events in this movie happen in the period of 1986–1987. The film begins with Pallavaram Paranjothi Pandian (RJ Balaji) attending an interview for a clerk’s post and getting rejected due to lack of money for giving bribe to the officials. Now the story shifts to Nachinarkkniyan aka Iniyan (Suriya) attending CBI interviews and his friend (Kalaiyarasan) attending police interviews.

Production
Development
Following the success of Neeraj Pandey’s Special 26 (2013), the director revealed that he was approached by several film makers who were keen on producing a Tamil version of the film. Linguswamy subsequently bought the rights of the film and planned to produce the venture in collaboration with Friday Filmworks, who had made the original version.[5][6] Linguswamy held initial discussions with Kamal Haasan, Suriya, Karthi and Vikram about portraying the film’s lead role with Sathyaraj, but the production failed to materialise.[7] In August 2014, producer Thiagarajan announced that he had purchased the Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada language rights to remake Special 26, and revealed that he would also direct all four ventures. Thiagarajan’s son Prashanth was revealed to be playing the lead role in the Tamil version, while Prakash Raj and Sathyaraj were signed to portray supporting roles.[8][9] A further press release in March 2015 stated that Srikanth Ravichandran, then husband of television host Divyadarshini, would instead direct the film and that he had already begun work on planning music compositions with Thaman. The team also revealed that they had signed on actress Trisha to feature in the leading female role.[10][11] After a period of little development, Prashanth revealed to the media in September 2015 that the film’s shoot would commence soon after with Madhesh as the director of the project.[12]

A press release in December 2015 suggested that Simran and Devayani would also be a part of the cast, while Jacqueline Fernandez would appear in a song. It was also stated that Anirudh Ravichander had been signed on to compose the film’s music and Sreekar Prasad would be the film’s editor.[13] Thiagarajan revealed that he would adapt the original film’s script and dialogues to suit a Tamil audience and that filming would take place in Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai.[14] The film failed to materialise over 2016 and it was widely reported in the media that the remake rights of the original film had been transferred from Thiagarajan to Studio Green and the film was to be made as Thaana Serndha Kootam by Vignesh Shivan with Suriya in the lead role.[15][16] The title was taken from a dialogue spoken by Rajinikanth in Baashha (1995).[17]

However in an interview during February 2017, Thiagarajan insisted that the film was still being planned with Prashanth in the lead role.[18] In late 2017, Thiagarajan made an application seeking an interim stay of the film’s release, claiming that his studio of Staar Movies still owned the film’s rights. He stated that Staar Movies had entered into an agreement with the original producers, Viacom, in August 2014 and obtained the rights to remake the movie in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada and that the agreement was valid for a period of three years. In early January 2018, the High Court refused the interim order application and called for the issues to be decided in a civil claim.[19][20]

Filming
Vignesh Shivan agreed to work on Thaanaa Serndha Koottam at short notice, after another project, Kaathu Vaakkula Rendu Kadhal with Vijay Sethupathi became delayed. Studio Green’s K. E. Gnanavel Raja asked Vignesh to do a project to star Suriya and the team chose to use an earlier script planned by Vignesh on the 1987 Opera House heist, like Special 26, where a group posing as Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officers executed an income tax raid on the jeweller in Mumbai, which he initially wanted to make with either actors Sivakarthikeyan or Vijay Sethupathi.[21] The team claimed to legally purchase the remake rights of Special 26, but instead of copying the film scene-by-scene, Vignesh was insistent that it was adapted to make it suitable for Tamil-speaking audiences.[22][23] The film was announced to the public in September 2016, with the shoot starting thereafter in October 2016.[24][25] Keerthy Suresh was signed on as the lead actress, while an ensemble cast of veteran actors including Ramya Krishnan, Suresh Chandra Menon, Senthil and Sudhakar were also a part of the first schedule.[26]

The film was predominantly shot across Chennai and Mysore, with the shoot finishing in August 2017.[27][28] Post-production works for the film were completed at Knack Studios in Chennai. The film was also dubbed in Telugu as Gang, with Suriya choosing to dub for himself in Telugu for the first time.

Release
Thaana Serndha Kootam got a worldwide release on 12 January 2018, two days before the festival Thai Pongal. Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of the film were sold for ₹36 crore. The satellite rights of the film were sold to Sun TV.
