Illam was the remake of Sanmanassullavarkku Samadhanam – a sleeper hit in Malayalam that cemented the position of Sreenivasan as a writer. The Malayalam version was directed by Sathyan Anthikad with Mohanlal and Karthika in the lead. The Tamil version was directed by IV Sasi and somehow Sivakumar – Amala combo couldn’t recreate the magic. Nevertheless, the movie gave us some interesting songs from Ilaiyaraaja.

The movie was remade as Donga Kallu in Telugu and it was remade twice in Kannada. The latest version was by Priyadarshan in Hindi – Yeh Tera Ghar Yeh Mera Ghar that bombed at the box-office.
