Won't say #Joji is the best I have ever seen but it's definitely an enjoyable watch for anyone who is into Crime Dramas. The slow paced story development may seem tiring at first but as you dive deep, it will get interesting for sure. Watch #JojiOnPrime pic.twitter.com/6htr3iIu9K

A form of art that shows the evilness of the human mind with a evil performance of Fahad Fassil and Dineesh Pothan's awesome direction. The sequence of events fit so well and the music rocks. Dialogue dept worked so well.
