Sathuranga Vettai, his first movie in 2014, was very well received by the audience. The film was said to be a "con film". Vinoth stated, "My film is about the pace at which we all want to make money in our lives. It's about the anger of the common man who thinks money is the solution to all his problems. When there's an imbalance in nature, we experience tsunami and earthquake. Likewise, my story is about the imbalance in the social morals of a common man".[5] Although it was a heist film, the director said that he had made the film "as funny as possible" and that it had been narrated , was signed on as director.[6][7] The film subsequently began production in mid-October 2016.[citation needed]

R. Prakashbabu and S.R. Prabhu of Dream Warrior Pictures.[10] The story is based on true events from the Operation Bawaria, which involved the nefarious activity of dacoits and its eventual containment by Tamil Nadu police.

During the post-production of Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, Vinoth narrated a con man type of script to Ajith. However, Ajith rejected it citing he had done similar movies and suggested on remaking Pink mentioning he liked his way of writing and wanted him to make this movie Tamil. Initially, Vinoth was reluctant on doing a remake but on Ajith's request and on repeated watching of the original movie Pink, he accepted to do it under Boney Kapoor's Bayview Projects.
