With the success of his recent releases, the audience believe there could be some good factors in Ezra that made him commit to the project, and they hope it would be a big hit despite being a horror thriller.

Horror genre

Even though many are not fans of horror movies, Ezra seems to be a decent one compared to other spooky movies released in Malayalam. Prithviraj claims that though the movie has few scenes that are sure to shock and make cine-goers scream, it has a good story line that will engage them for sure. "I have acted in horror movies before, but they were all comedy horror movies, but Ezra is different. Let this be a reawakening genre in movie in Malayalam [translated from Malayalam]," Prithviraj is heard saying in a live interview. The makers have also guaranteed on the quality and freshness in Ezra that will surely impress the audience.

Ensemble cast

Ezra has an ensemble cast, including Tovino Thomas, Vijayaraghavan, Babu Antony, Sudev Nair, Pratap Pothan and Alencier Ley in significant roles. The movie also marks the Mollywood debut of Tamil-Hindi actress Priya Anand, who plays as Priya in Ezra. After the release of the movie's teaser, rumours were doing the rounds on social media that superstar Mohanlal might be making a cameo appearance in it as Abraham Ezra. However, the film-maker recently confirmed it to be a rumour and clarified that the secret character seen in the videos are Prithviraj himself.
