One of Sivaaji Ganesan’s most commanding performances ever will be re-released on the big screen in nearly 60 screens today. Karnan. The 1964 epic film based on the mythical character of Karnan was one of the grandest and most expensive films of its times. Some say that its scale is still unmatched. The movie was a landmark in Tamil cinema when it was first released and still remains so.
Now, it has been revived with digitally remastered images and sound to enhance the experience. The film was produced and directed by B.Ramakrishnaiah Panthulu and also features yesteryear Telugu superstar and former Andhra Pradesh CM, late NTR in the role of Lord Krishna. Muthuraman plays the character of Arjuna in this film that was renowned for its great battle scenes. This might mark an era of digitally restoring yesteryear Tamil classics.
