Nyayam Kavali was remade in four other languages and created history there in other languages too. K. Balaji brought Tamil rights and L.V. Prasad brought Hindi rights. Though they offered Kondadarami Reddy to direct the Tamil version, he refused as he was not well versed with the language. Tamil version was directed by K. Vijayan while Director K. Bhagyaraja did a small role as himself (like Dasari Narayana Rao in Telugu Version), titled Vidhi which was also a huge hit, Poornima Jayaraman did the role of Radhika while Sujatha did the role of Sharada, Jaishankar did the role of Jagayya while Mohan did the role of Chiranjeevi, Producer Balaji (father-in-law of Malayalam star Mohanlal ) appeared in the role of judge. The film was a blockbuster and ran for 500 days in some centers.
