Noted actor Karthi’s 25th movie Japan hit big screens today. Dive into our review to find out how it fares.
In Hyderabad, a jewelry store loses Rs. 200 crores in a significant gold heist. The police suspect the notorious thief Japan (Karthi). The Home Minister (KS Ravi Kumar) urges a swift resolution. When the police corner Japan, he insists he didn’t commit the crime. The main movie unravels the mystery, revealing the real culprit and unfolding Japan’s next moves.
Karthi excels in portraying the role of a notorious thief. His character is well-crafted with wit, and his perpetually chill demeanor and humorous dialogues elicit decent laughs, even in serious situations.
Noted cinematographer and director Vijay Milton delivers a commendable performance. His comedic timing at the beginning of the film generates laughter.
Sunil also performs adequately, and the movie is complemented by the music composed by GV Prakash Kumar.
After starting off well, the movie quickly declines due to a lackluster story accompanied by a weak screenplay. Writer-director Raju Murugan falls short of making Japan an engaging cat-and-mouse game.
Raju Murugan could have developed a concise screenplay that might have improved the film’s overall pace.
Anu Emmanuel adds little value to the film. Throughout, she barely appears for more than 10 minutes and even her scenes with Karthi lack appeal.
The film lacks a compelling story and strong characters. KS Ravi Kumar is not fully utilised.
While the movie features numerous action sequences, they could have been better composed to entertain a broader audience.
Director Raju Murugan fails to harness Karthi’s acting skills, falling short as a director and writer.
The music by GV Prakash Kumar stands out as a positive aspect. The cinematography and production values are decent, but the editing requires more attention. The VFX is average, but the impressive dubbing gives the feeling of watching a straight Telugu movie.
On the whole, Japan is a slow-paced action-packed crime comedy drama. Karthi’s humorous dialogues, witty performance, and the music are the film’s highlights. However, the thin storyline and poor screenplay dilute the overall impact. It might be better to explore other viewing options this weekend.
