Ezra

Cast : Prithviraj Sukumaran, Priya Anand, Tovino Thomas, VijayaRaghavan Story-Screenplay-Direction : Jay K Genre : Horror-Thriller Released : 10-Feb-2017 It was an era when Jewish settlements exist in Kerala. A story based on Jewish settlement and their traditions (atleast to an extent) is not much explored in malayalam industry. Jay K’s Ezra brings a Jewish tradition based horror treatment much to the surprise as his debut. A young couple shifts from Mumbai to Kochi and makes one of the oldest villas their home. Little did they know that the happiness in their life would soon be ruined. It all starts as the last Jew of Ke rala passes away and Priya (Priya Anand) picks up a box from his antique collection from a shop in Kochi. Will Ranjan be able to help Priya and bring peace back in their life? Suspense mounts as an interesting twist awaits you post-interval and it will keep you on the edge of your seat. The visual depiction of 1941’s Jewish settlements in Kerala are nicely pictured. Cinematography by Sujith vasudev works perfectly in horror sequences as well as the periodic flashback scenes.

The twist in the end came unexpected but then a close watch...
