* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Zigzagged. Bora figures out early on that he can turn Chitti against Vaseegaran thanks to Sana, but [[spoiler:doesn't think to give Chitti some kind of RestrainingBolt along with the red chip.]]

Notable for being the only collaboration between monster-meister Creator/StanWinston (whose most beloved creations include Film/TheTerminator and The Film/{{Alien}} Queen) and Martial-Arts Luminary Creator/YuenWooPing, who is beloved for his works with JetLi and his masterful combat-choreography on classics like ''Film/OnceUponATimeInChina'' and ''Film/CrouchingTigerHiddenDragon''.

* ShoutOut: To Creator/IsaacAsimov and his Three Laws of Robotics, and many, ''[[ReferenceOverdosed many]]'' [[ShoutOut ShoutOuts]] to the ''{{Terminator}}'' movies. Oh, and one of the more primitive robots is off-handedly referred to as [[StarWars R-2]].

* ActorAllusion: Chitti waxing poetic over Sana may come out of leftfield for some, but it ''is'' the sort of thing you'd get, at any point in history, with anyone that could be labeled WorldsMostBeautifulWoman.



* PlayingAgainstType: Evil!Chitti is notably Rajnikanth's first villainous role ''after thirty years''.

* GiftGivingGaffe: Apparently Vaseegaran gave Sana "[[StephenHawking A Briefer History of Time]]" and "{{Freakonomics}}". Not as bad as the ''female razor'', though.

* [[spoiler:KeystoneArmy: Zigzagged. Vaseegaran sends viruses into the evil!Chitti army by hacking just one of them. It doesn't quite take, until Vaseegaran finds evil!Chitti and takes out Bora's red chip, which does the trick.]]

* MoralDissonance: Dr. Vaseegaran [[spoiler: proceeds to brutally "dismantle" Chitti, despite his pleas to be allowed to live, and no one sees anything wrong with it. In fact, he's the only one who seems to regret it and even then he states, it's only because he saw him as his greatest breakthrough. [[DesignatedHero That's our hero, folks.]]. What might make this worse is that he had been struck by lightning earlier and was behaving more human after this, possibly suggesting that a deity had given him life.]]
