Mumbai: Actor Fahadh Faasil-starrer Malayalam crime-drama ”Joji” is all set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on April 7. Directed by Dileesh Pothan, ”Joji” also stars Baburaj, Shammi Thilakan, Alistair Alex and Unnimaya Prasad in pivotal roles.

The film is inspired by Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth and aims to presents a ”twisted version” of the plot filled with greed, ambition, murder and mystery. ”Joji” marks the third directorial collaboration between Pothan and Faasil, who have earlier worked for 2016 comedy-drama ”Maheshinte Prathikaaram” and National Award-winning feature ”Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum”.

Vijay Subramaniam, Director and Head, Content, Amazon Prime Video said ”Joji” is a ”notable addition” to the duo’s exceptional work together. ”At Amazon Prime Video, our aim is to constantly provide our viewers with content that serves as wholesome entertainment and we’re confident that customers everywhere will find Joji thoroughly enjoyable,” Subramaniam said in a statement.

The film revolves around Joji, an engineering dropout and the youngest son of the rich plantation family who lives with his aspirations of becoming a super wealthy NRI. His father, however, thinks of him as nothing more than a loser. Driven by greed and blind ambition, Joji finally decides to execute his plans following an unexpected event in the family, as per the film’s official plotline.

Faasil said he decided to board the project the moment he understood his character’s journey in ”Joji”. ”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. ”I am excited that with ‘Joji’ premiering on Amazon Prime Video, viewers across the globe will be able to enjoy our crime drama,” the 38-year-old actor said.

For Pothan, reuniting with his long-time collaborator in ”Joji” was fruitful and the director hoped that the the film will keep audiences ”hooked till the end.” ”It was an amazing experience to work with such a brilliant and hardworking team. Every actor embraced their characters so beautifully,” he added. Written by Syam Pushkaran, ”Joji” is produced by Bhavana Studios in association with Fahadh Faasil and Friends and Working Class Hero.
