Amazon Prime Video recently released the fascinating trailer for the Malayalam crime drama Joji and it received rave reviews from audiences across the country. Joji brings back successful team director Dileesh Pothan, writer Syam Pushkaran and actor Fahadh Faasil! All set to premiere on April 7 on Amazon Prime Video, Joji’s plot is inspired by William Shakespeare’s popular tragedy, Macbeth.
Speaking about the idea of making a story around Macbeth, director Dileesh said, “During the lockdown period, thoughts and discussions about the new film were very much alive. There were regulations everywhere and we were concerned about the length of the pandemic and its effect on the filming process. We thought of the stories in confined spaces rather than on a large canvas. Thus, the plays entered our reference because they use the minimum space for the narration. I myself performed the Macbeth banquet scene while studying acting. I have read many other plays on Macbeth. Macbeth’s idea inspired us a lot. But Macbeth’s plot was broad and had very little to do with our culture. So we decided to think about choosing the idea, to put the plot aside and end up with an independent plot. “
Dileesh reunited with award-winning writer Syam Pushkaran for Joji, explaining the story in more detail, the director said, “JOJI is not a complete adaptation of Macbeth. Once the plot was formed, we completely focused on everything necessary for the development of the plot, regardless of the structure of Macbeth. It’s an effort to make a movie based on the inspiration we got from Macbeth. “
Set in contemporary times, the film’s story revolves around Joji, an engineering dropout and the youngest son of the wealthy plantation family who lives with his aspirations to become a very wealthy NRI. But his father looks down on him and considers him 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.
