* ArtisticLicenseLaw: When Mr. Orange is telling his story about walking into the men's room and finding it occupied by four policemen and a narcotics dog, he says the dog starts growling at him because it's a drug-sniffing dog and he's carrying drugs. Fortunately, the cops just tell the dog to knock it off, because they think the dog is just being bitchy over being in a confined space with so many people. However, what most people don't realize is that a dog trained to sniff out drugs does ''not'' react to their presence by getting aggressive. That's not the right way to train a dog and it's a good way to make a bad situation worse. Drug-sniffing dogs are trained to ''sit down'' next to something that smells of drugs. In reality, if he'd have walked into that bathroom carrying drugs with the dog in there, the dog would have simply walked up to him and sat down, signaling to his handler that he's a man carrying drugs.

* BerserkButton: Mr. Blonde ''really'' doesn't like alarms. Don't insinuate that he has a "boss". While his reaction to the alarm is off-screen, it's discussed at-length by the other characters (he apparently began going on a rampage that involved shooting random bystanders, including a little girl) ''and'' is responsible for the situation everyone's in.

* Foreign Remake: the 2002 and 2014 heist movies kaante and avenged are the foreign versions of this film and have the same concept, except in those two, you get to see the actual robberies, and there's more blood, more action, more mayhem, and more suspense too.

* BerserkButton: Several.
** Nice Guy Eddie: Don't threaten his dad.
** Mr. Blonde: He doesn't like alarms. Don't insinuate that he has a "boss". In spite of his violent reactions, we never actually see him lose his temper - all of them are off-screen.
** Mr. White: Don't call him an asshole. Don't threaten people he has gotten to like.
