Titled 'Who's Japan?', we see the build-up to the introduction of Karthi's character in the teaser, with the film's heroine Anu Emmanuel, followed by Pushpa fame Sunil, filmmaker Vijay Milton, veteran actor Chandrasekhar among others making appearances, to a powerful and rousing background score by National Award-winning music director G. V. Prakash Kumar. Karthi's character in the Japan intro video gives us a glimpse into his antics in the film and we can expect yet another entertaining performance from the actor, who looks to be at his comfortable best once again.
Japan is coming out hot on the heels of the phenomenal box office success of Karthi's Ponniyin Selvan: 2 and the actor will be looking to hit the bullseye once again this Diwali. The actor has delivered four back-to-back hits from 2022 starting with Viruman, Ponniyin Selvan: 1, and Sardar, including PS: 2, which was released last month, and saw him reprise his role as Vanthiyathevan. Japan is also Karthi's fifth Diwali release after All in All Azhagu Raja (2013), Kaashmora (2016), Kaithi (2019), and Sardar (2022), and the actor will be looking to make it a memorable outing once again.
