Prithviraj starrer Ezra, directed by debutant Jay K is cruising ahead at the box office. The film has rightly stormed the Kerala box office by setting the cash registers ringing at a fast rate.
Horror movies are not that common in Mollywood and seldom we have seen movies of this particular genre being hugely appreciated by the Malayalam movie audiences.
Ezra has succesfully overcome that barrier and now the industry has got a film of the genre horror thriller, which could be termed as a blockbuster in all the senses.
The film has been packaged excellently and the due credit of the film's success must go to each an every member of cast and crew of the movie, for bringing up a quality product.
But, there are a few other factors that contributed to the gigantic success of Ezra, which it is enjoying now. Read on to know more about that..
Horror Elements In The Right Dose
The makers of Ezra didn't try to scare the viewers with each and every scene of the film. The dosage of horror factor in the film was in the right proportions. There aren't any cheap thrills in the movie which seemed loud or misplaced. Importantly, Ezra was able to impart that fear factor through the storyline and the proceedings of the movie.
A Good Story To Balance The Movie
Usually, what we get to see in horror movies are cliched stories which finally turn out to be quite a familiar one to the viewers. In Ezra, the makers have successfully stayed away from some of those cliched elements and smartly packaged the film keeping the viewers guessing till the end. The success of the movie proves that it definitely has gone down well with the audiences.
Presence Of A Big Star Like Prithviraj
It is quite rare to see big stars opting to do movies of this genre. The presence of Prithviraj in Ezra has done a lot of good for the movie. A very familiar and popular face in films of this genre does bring in that familiarity and relatability in the minds of the audiences.
A Hollywood Feel To The Film
Ezra is a film of Hollywood standards. Within a limited budget, the makers were able to pull off a product which has all the look and feel of a grand movie. Ezra did take the viewers to a new world with its technical perfection.
Staying Close To Logic
Ezra has been packaged in a smart way. The content of the movie is not completely logicless. They have embedded that believability factor without losing out the interesting elements of the plot. To put it simple, they stayed away from challenging the logic.
Reportedly, Prithviraj's Ezra has already crossed the 20-Crore mark at the Kerala box office and going at this rate, the film is expected to reach more heights. The movie, which recently had an overseas release is expected to fetch huge from those centres, as well.
