Dileesh Pothan shared, “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.”
Joji, an Engineer drop out, is driven by an ambition of becoming a successful and rich NRI. His father, who owns a rich plantation, isn’t too impressed with his youngest son’s aspirations and constantly find reasons to clip his wings. Joji, therefore, is treated as the ‘loser’ in the family. Ego-clashes, greed, and blind ambition pushes Joji to do the unexpected. To know what, you’ll have to watch the film.
