The film is an official remake of a Kannada film with the same title that released in 2016. The story of the original movie revolved around death of motorists who flouted traffic rules on a particular flyover in Bengaluru. The culprit is finally caught by a rookie journalist and a cop. The film had Shraddha Srinath in the lead role. Roger Narayan, Dilip Raj and Radhika Chetan featured in supporting roles. It was remade in Malayalam as Careful in 2017.
