Official Trailer and Plot of Japan

From the dingy underbelly of the city, Japan, the infamous jewel thief, rises to legend. He swindles away Rs 200 crores of jewels from a corrupt politician with his deft fingers and crafty intellect, setting up an exciting game of cat and mouse with the police. Japan, who is always one step ahead, avoids arrest by using his skill at disguising himself and his familiarity with the city’s winding alleyways. He arrives and vanishes at will, like a phantom, leaving the cops perplexed and angry. Will Japan pull off his bold theft and make off with the jewels? Or will he eventually be apprehended and brought to justice by the police? The story centers around this only.

Cast and Crew of Japan

Raju Murugan is the writer and director of Japan. In addition to Karthi, the ensemble cast from Japan also includes Anu Emmanuel, Sunil, KS Ravikumar, Jithan Ramesh, Bava Chelladurai, and others. The movie was financed by Dream Warrior Pictures, a production house that has worked on films such as Kaithi and Sulthan. GV Prakash Kumar composed the soundtrack.

Reception of Japan

One of Karthi’s biggest failures, the film grossed 26 crores globally at the end of its theatrical run. Karthi’s historic film—his 25th—was a colossal failure at the box office. Even IMDB gave the movie a ranking of 3.3, showing the audience’s dismal love for the film.
