Amazon Prime has been very aggressive in its acquisition of Malayalam movies off late and the trend continues with Joseph, even though it’s a 2018 release. The film made it to the streaming platforms earlier this week. The timing is all the more special because of its National Award win where it earned a special mention.
Written by Shahi Kabir and featuring Joju George, Athmeeya Rajan, Dileesh Pothan in key roles, Joseph revolves around the lives of several police men, particularly a retired officer who gets entangled in a criminal case after the death of his wife. It surprises his near and dear, given his investigative acumen and sincerity all through his career.
Investigation thrillers are something that Malayalam films are known to churn out on a regular basis. The layered writing, gripping narration provide credibility to Joseph. A gritty thriller that earned good reviews upon its release, here’s for you to cherish on the smaller screen.
