Karnan released today with limited occupancies at the theatres. The reviews have started to come in and the critics seem bowled over by the two most important aspects of the film - Dhanush's performance and Mari Selvaraj's direction. Karnan is a story about two villages and their rivalry. It is also a tale of rising up against oppression. Critics are praising the way the director has sensitively treated the menace of the caste system in the film without being preachy or demeaning towards anybody. No wonder the director is getting so much love from the audience as well.
