Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Joji is one of those film that tells us the cruel nature of people that they even didn’t fright to kill their own family members for greed and wealth. This film is inspired by Macbeth play by Shakespeare. Fahadh Faasil has given his career best role in Joji and its so hard to bring something new to the platter for the audience at every single time. Kuttappan role is priceless as a ailing father, who didn’t given any wealth to their sons and in return they wish that he die soon. Cinematography and editing are top class in this film. The long shots and aerial shots of rural Kerala can win all the hearts of fan. The story is strong and that’s what lifts up the film. The first half is where the story is built and looks abit slow. But the second half takes this film to another level as per story and performances.
Joji movie budget hasn’t been revealed by the makers still it would reportedly be around 4-5 crores maximum.
Altogether, Joji is one of the best films of Malayalam cinema after The Great Indian Kitchen and Drishyam 2.
