Karthi’s Japan, the 25th movie starring well-known actor Karthi, opened in theaters today. View our review to find out how well it works.


A jewelry store in Hyderabad has to pay Rs. 200 crores for a major gold robbery. The authorities are suspecting Japan (Karthi), the notorious thief. The Home Minister, KS Ravi Kumar, demands a swift resolution. Japan says that when the police cornered him, he wasn’t a criminal. In the main movie, the mystery is answered along with the identity of the real criminal and Japan’s next move.

Extra Credits:

Karthi does a fantastic job playing a notorious thief. His persona is cleverly written, and even in severe situations, people can’t help but giggle at his ever-so-chilly manner and clever banter.

Renowned director and cinematographer Vijay Milton gives an excellent performance. His comic timing at the start of the movie makes people giggle.

Sunil gives an adequate performance as well, while GV Prakash Kumar’s soundtrack enhances the film.

Negative Points:

The film’s weak screenplay and uninteresting premise cause it to quickly lose its promising start. In Japan, writer and director Raju Murugan is unable to produce a gripping game of cat and mouse.

The movie might have moved along more quickly if Raju Murugan had written a shorter screenplay.

Anu Emmanuel adds little to the image. Even her interactions with Karthi are dull, and she rarely appears for more than ten minutes at a time.

The film lacks a compelling storyline and well-rounded characters. We’re not utilizing KS Ravi Kumar to the fullest.

The movie has a lot of action moments, but they could have been organized more effectively to appeal to a larger audience.

Technical Aspects:

Karthi’s acting abilities are not fully utilized by director Raju Murugan, who also lacks success as a writer and filmmaker.

GV Prakash Kumar’s music sticks out as a good feature. Although the production qualities and cinematography are respectable, the editing needs more work. The remarkable dubbing creates the impression of viewing a Telugu film despite the mediocre visual effects.


Karthi’s Japan is a slow-moving, action-packed drama about crime and comedy overall. The film’s highlights are Karthi’s clever performance, hilarious banter, and beautiful soundtrack. However, the weak screenplay and limited plot lessen the overall impact. This weekend, it would be wiser to look at alternative viewing possibilities.
