  • With hope that Naan Kadavul will sweep national awards, the movie would be censored on 30 December, 2008 to join the race for the acclaim this year itself.
  • Since movies with Digital Interlude (DI) are not considered for National awards, both the cinematographer and the director have not used DI in the film.
