The Malayalam crime drama “Joji” will release digitally on April 7. The film stars Fahadh Faasil, who made his mark with roles in “C U Soon” and “Kumbalangi Nights”, along with Baburaj, Shammi Thilakan, Alistair Alex and Unnimaya Prasad, and has been directed by Dileesh Pothan.
Talking about how he came on board, Fahadh says: “The moment I got to know about my character and his journey, I knew I had to be part of the movie. I love to watch movies with unconventional plot twists, and ‘Joji’ definitely packs in some surprises.”
“I give myself enough time to understand my character and essentially become it, but Joji is one such character that had an edge to it which made the role interesting and appealing to me,” Fahadh Faasil adds.
Director Pothan says “Joji” was a “special” film for him.
“As a filmmaker I enjoy telling stories, and every film has its own journey. ‘Joji’ is a special film, the story will keep audiences hooked till the end. With ‘Joji’, I also reunited with a fine actor like Fahadh. It was an amazing experience to work with such a brilliant and hardworking team. Every actor embraced their characters so beautifully,” he says.
The film also features Baburaj, Shammi Thilakan, Alistar Alex, Unnimaya Prasad, Basil Joseph and Sunny PN. It has been written by Syam Pushkaran.
