The film is inspired by Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth And to present a "twisted version" of a plot full of greed, ambition, murder and mystery. "Joji" marks the third directorial collaboration between Pothan and Faasil, who has previously worked for the 2016 comedy-drama "Maheshinath Prathikaram" and the national award-winning feature "Thondimuthalam Draksasakshim".
The film revolves around Joji, the youngest son of an engineering dropout and affluent plantation family, who lives with his aspirations to become a super rich NRI. His father, however, considers him nothing more than a loser. Inspired by greed and blind ambition, Joji eventually decides to execute his plans after an unexpected incident in the family, according to the film's official plot.
Fasil said that he decided to board the project when he understood his character's journey in "Joji". "I give myself enough time to understand my character and essentially become that, but Joji is a character who had an edge that made me interesting and attractive.
The 38-year-old actor added, "I am excited that with the premiere of & # 39; Joji & # 39; s on Amazon Prime Video, viewers around the world will be able to enjoy our crime drama."
For Pothan, the reunion with his longtime collaborator in "Joji" was fruitful and the director hoped the film would keep the audience "hooked to the end". “It was a wonderful experience working with such a brilliant and hardworking team. Every actor adopted his characters so beautifully, ”he said. Written by Syam Pushkaran, "Joji" is produced by Bhavana Studios in collaboration with Fahd Fasil and Friends and Working Class Hero.
