Karnan – What is the storyline?
The storyline of this movie is based on an old Hindu Mythology and the creators claim that this story is actually based on true events. According to them, the story of Karnan is based in the 90s in Tamil Nadu. This thing also attracted a lot of viewers to come forward and watch the movie.
The movie revolves around the main character Karnan and his heroic moves which makes him great in his show. The show lowkey spit facts about what is happening in the world and how it is important. The show starts with suspense when a small girl dies near the road and nobody was able to take her to the hospital because there was no vehicle system there. That’s why the child died without any medication or help
There are two villages in the state and both of them are having serious conflicts. The irony is one village is just fighting to show his superiority over the other while the other village is just saving themselves. Doesn’t this happen in war every time?
Is the story based on true events?
The show tells the story of the revolution and difficulties faced by a village to overcome the other one. The show even made a satire for today’s generation. You will see that there are already a lot of things going around but some people are not even caring and worshiping an idol without a hand, this indicates how we normally idolize people without knowing the truth.
Karnan is a boy who lives in the village and saves the locals from daily problems. By doing this, he got a name in his village and the children even think of him as a SUPERHERO.
According to the officials, the story is based on the true events of the 90s where one village is dominated by the other because of their differences in caste. The story even conveys how education is important in the area because in the movie there is no one who is well educated. It also tells the difficulties one has to face to get a good government job.
Why are there so many Animals in the story?
The film beautifully portrays the use of animals well in the story. The animal holds meaning in the show. While watching the movie, you will encounter a Donkey, elephant, horse, and dog. The owner of the donkey has bound him by the legs and it shows how a person is bound with responsibility and other things in his life. The donkey is not feeling well in the company of his owner but he has nothing left so he decides to stay there. The hero freed the donkey from his owner and let him have a free life.
There is also a scene where one person is standing on the Elephant and which portrays supremacy by standing on the top. When in the first place he doesn’t even deserve to be there
Overall, the movie is great with binding many social themes with itself. The cameraman and cinematography are amazing in the movie and this wildness definitely binds you throughout the show. There is also a romantic scene because a girl falls for Karnan but his duties didn’t let him love her. If you are someone who is a fan of Dhanush and South movies then give this movie a try. You will not regret it.
Why didn’t Lal dub his Dialogues in Karnan?
The famous Director of south film, who has already worked with Dhanush and one of his dearest friends, has been in talks. Karnan movie lover after watching the movie was wondering why Lal didn’t dud his dialogues in the movie.
The director-producer has said that he wants to dub but the way of speaking and the dialects were out of his range. And it also becomes harder for him to maintain the same level of language continuously, which he is of course not familiar with.
Lal replied to the situation
He addressed this situation to his fans on the social media account by saying,
“Many of you have been asking me as to why I have not lent my own voice for Yema Raja in Karnan. As you all know Karnan is set in the backdrop of Tirunelveli; the dialect of Tamil spoken in Tirunelveli is very different from the Tamil spoken in Chennai. Even in Malayalam, if one is asked to speak in Thrissur dialect, it often ends up being a mere imitation, and nothing close to how a native of Thrissur would speak.
Moreover, Karnan is a movie in which the language and culture are of great importance and hence a unique dialect of the Tamil language has to be spoken to bring the character to a whole. The majority of the cast were locals themselves; there was a good chance that my dubbing would have stood out from the rest of them. As I did not want to give anything less than 100% for this movie, I was skeptical.
Due to the persistence of the crew including the director Mari Selvaraj sir and producer Kalaipuli S Thanu sir, I did go to Chennai for the dubbing sessions. However, it was for the good of the film, and also at my request, that the voice of a Tirunelveli native was used.
Thank you for all your support and good words.”
