Karthi fits well in the character, as usual. His body language and dialogue delivery are fantastic, and he gets appreciation from the audience for his portrayal. Vijay Milton has got a good role and his performance is wonderful. We have seen him cranking the camera and directing the movies, and for the first time, we witness his acting excellence. Sunil did his job better. Anu didn’t have much to perform.
When we heard that Raju Murugan would direct Japan with Karthi, we thought it would be a message-oriented subject with dark comedy. But, Japan is a complete commercial entertainer, though it has some message behind it. However, the screenplay should have been better with its writing. As far as we see, Raju Murugan failed to utilize some talented people like KS Ravikumar. Ravikumar is one such natural actor who could excel in any role. We feel his talent is not appropriately used in this film. However, Karthi’s potential was perfectly utilized, and hence, his fans had some whistling moments. GV Prakash’s music is decent. The visuals are good, but the VFX needed more attention.
What’s Not There?
Overall, Japan is a medium-paced action comedy thriller that may go well with Karthi’s fans and heist thriller fans.
