Inferno (also released as Operation Cobra) is a 1997 feature film directed by Fred Olen Ray starring Don Wilson, Deepti Bhatnagar and R. Madhavan. Evan Lurie, Michael Cavanaugh and Tané McClure appear in other pivotal roles. This is the debut film of R. Madhavan.

Plot synopsis[edit]

Don Wilson plays Kyle Connors, an Interpol agent who travels to India on a mission of revenge against the terrorist that killed his partner.[1]



Don Wilson worked on the script of the film with director Fred Olen Ray and producers Ashok Amritraj and Sunanda Murali Manohar during early 1996, before beginning the shoot at MGR Film City in Chennai, India in July. Filming for the first time in India, Ray recruited local Indian actors including actor R. Madhavan and actress Deepti Bhatnagar to portray roles in the project.[2]


The film is reported to have done average business as a result of its video release.[3]

The film was later dubbed into Tamil as Vegham in 2001, to capitalize on Madhavan's new-found fame after Alaipayuthey.[4][5] Golden Lotus Entertainments dubbed and released the film in Telugu as Secret Agent 786, with dialogue by Malluri Venkat and editing by Trinath.[6]
