The Amazon Original movie, Joji, starring Fahadh Faasil received an overwhelming response right when the trailer dropped. The Malayalam film is streaming on Amazon Prime Video now, and audiences have been loving this intriguing tale. The successful trio — actor Fahadh, director Dileesh Pothan and writer Syam Pushkaran deliver a film based on greed and power that is a fresh take on the world-famous tragedy, William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

What’s super interesting is that it’s set in the COVID era, and is the first Malayalam film set in the pandemic.

Speaking about his character, Joji, Fahadh Faasil shares that it was a challenging role:

I took a long time to crack Joji as a character, it’s definitely my toughest role till date. Tougher than my last film with Dileesh, In fact, even Dileesh said that this was the toughest film he has shot.

Here’s the trailer of the film:

Dileesh Pothan and Fahadh have previously worked together in Maheshinte Prathikaram and Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum. Both these films were critically acclaimed and loved by audiences, and Joji is no different.

Directed by Dileesh, and written by Syam Pushkaran, Joji is produced by Bhavana Studios in association with Fahadh Faasil and Friends & Working Class Hero. The much-awaiting crime drama features Fahadh Faasil alongside Baburaj, Shammi Thilakan, Alistair Alex, and Unnimaya Prasad, Basil Joseph and Sunny PN in prominent roles.
