Andy Lau Tak Wa admitted that when he made BLIND DETECTIVE (MAN TAM) he imitated Johnnie To Kei Fung. In the film he was the most convincing with To Sir's gluttonous personality, as he and Sammi Cheng Sau Man ate nonstop. On street stalls they had stinky sausage, ice cream and a feast at a high class restaurant. Sammi who has been working hard to stay in shape but also loves to eat said that eating during the shoot was a gift. Luckily she had to keep running and was able to burn up the excessive calories.
Wa Ja in the film was blind but had many funny action scenes. In one scene he and Lam Suet were in a forest chase. Lam Suet was chasing after him with a hammer. He dodged the attacks with the sounds and climbed onto a tree to hide and wait for a rescue; Wa Jai joked that he has not had such a funny action scene in a long time. Aside from climbing trees, being chased and attacked, he also had to play drunk and lay on the street.
