A film that continues to draw a big debate among fans, Dhanush's Karnan directed Mari Selvaraj has turned out to be a huge success. Produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu's V Creations banner, the action drama film came out in theatres in April, followed by its OTT premiere on Amazon Premiere last week, with appreciation continuing to pour in from many commoners and celebrities who had missed watching in cinema halls due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With Karnan's story and themes still widely being discussed by film aficionados and fans, Amazon Prime has now released the first of the behind the scenes videos showing the extensive level of production value, including the efforts of the entire technical team and supporting artists, with Dhanush and director Mari Selvaraj as well hard at work in their crafts. 

Karnan is yet another feather in two-time National Award-winning actor Dhanush's cap and is a big challenging role which he has capitalized on all fronts after his Asuran in 2019. Mari Selvaraj too lived up to the expectations with his latest outing after his directorial debut Pariyerum Perumal became a commercial and critical success in 2018. Karnan's success has instilled Dhanush’s faith in Mari Selvaraj and the two will once again collaborate for another project next year. Likewise, producer Kalaipuli Thanu too is happy as his partnership with Dhanush after Asuran has yielded big positive results. 

Among the several highlights and aspects for Karnan's success, the film's supporting cast too had a tremendous role to play and the performances of each of the artists is a strong testimony. Apart from Dhanush, Malayalam actress Rajisha Vijayan, who made her debut in the film, delivered a knockout performance, followed by Natty (a) Natarajan Subramanian as the antagonist leaving a lasting impression. Other names that made heads turn in the film include veteran actors Lal and Azhagam Perumal,Yogi Babu, 96 and Master fame Gouri G. Kishan and Lakshmi short film actress Lakshmi Priyaa Chandramouli to name a few.
