The powerful head of a wealthy Kottayam-based family is felled by a stroke. How the impact of Kuttapan PK’s (PN Sunny) illness ripples outwards into his large homestead, makes up the bulk of Joji. Grown men infantilised by a domineering father scramble to make sense of their world, which has till now been a one-way ticket — the meek execution of orders rapped-out-and-received. Roiling frustration, anger and fear make for a combustible situation. Something has to give, and of course it does.Joji 2021 Movie Download.
Joji, based on Macbeth, doesn’t waste a single moment in getting into the meat of the story. The bull-like ageing patriarch towers over his sons, the heavy-set Jomon (Babu Raj) who most resembles his father in build; the stocky Jaison (Joji Mundakayam) who is the obedient, dutiful one; and the slight Joji (Fahadh Faasil) an engineering drop-out with wayward ways. Teenaged grandson Popy (Alister Alex) wanders about aimlessly. In this universe of men, a sole woman, Bincy (Unnimaya Prasad), folds the fort, crumbling under the upheavals caused by the old man’s now-critical-now-stable condition. How long will he last?Joji 2021 Movie Download.
The slow burn of tension and dread is skillfully built up in the ace writing of Syam Pushkaran, whose last outing was the wonderful Kumbalangi Nights. Pushkaran, director Dileesh Pothan (Maheshinte Pratikaaram, Thondimuthalam Driksakshiym) and Fahad Faasil are long-time collaborators, and the smoothness in their latest coming together is proof, if it were ever needed, that story is king, and that everything flows from a great screenplay.
Each character is etched with care. The high prevalence of alcoholism, a serious problem in Kerala, shows up in Jomon’s constant state of belligerent inebriation. Jaison is hobbled by his habit of being a pleaser. And Joji, who feels his father’s lashing contempt the deepest, goes down a path from where there’s no coming back. Jincy, who is as desperate to be free of the shackles of the toxicity surrounding her, is complicit: everyone is flawed, everyone is responsible for the multiple tragedies that follow.
