In this real story inspired science fiction movie, based on the Nipah virus outbreak in Kerala, Joju George played the role of one of the cleaning staff who refused to take leave and worked tirelessly, risking their lives to save others. The people who worked as cleaning staff were the ones who were most susceptible to the virus because they were handling the waste from the Nipah isolation ward. He did complete justice to the character with his brilliant performance in the film.

Head constable Mini is one of the most memorable characters in recent Mollywood movies. Constable Mini is a careless police officer who accidentally lands himself in trouble frequently. At first he loses his wireless set to a drunkard, later he misfires a gun in the police station. Joju has portrayed this comic character brilliantly in the movie, also making him meme material.
Porinju Mariyam Jose
7.4OTTplay Rating
Kaattalan Porinju portrayed by Joju George was one of his career best performances, a goon who is in love with his childhood friend, Mariyam. Kaattalan Porinju’s character is supported by Chemban Vinod’s ‘Jose’, who is a friend of both Porinju and Mairyam. Porinju’s character was full of emotions and was a perfect fit for the era in which the movie was set in.
