Niddhish Puuzhakkal shares details about Ego
According to Puuzhakkal, Ego isn't a typical Bollywood film, it's an exploration of one of the most common human phobias — claustrophobia, the fear of closed spaces.
He said, “Drawing from my childhood experiences and inspired by the rich tapestry of human emotions as a psychologist, I've poured my heart and soul into this project. Featuring an exceptional ensemble cast, including Arshad Warsi, Juhi Chawla, Divya Dutta, Gauhar Khan, and Prakash Belawadi, Ego showcases these talented actors in roles you've never seen them play before.”
Niddhish Puuzhakkal opens up on his vision for Ego
The director added that Ego will transport viewers to a world where reality and illusion are indistinguishable, taking them on a captivating voyage through the intricacies of the mind. With its sights, provocative story, and creative vision that has proven incredibly difficult to realize, Ego hopes to make an impression on viewers that will last a lifetime. The story is new and provides viewers with an unparalleled experience across the globe.
According to Puuzhakkal, a distinct perspective on psychological thriller will be given by Ego. It's more than just a movie; it's an investigation of the human condition, an identity jigsaw, and a cinematic experience that will cause one to reflect on the essence of who one is. As the director, Puuzhakkal drew inspiration from his early fascination and curiosity about the human mind to make an entertaining film.
