And with this remarkable feat, the Naam Shabana actor’s film turned out to be the second Malayalam blockbuster of the year after the Mohanlal starrer Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol. Ezra also emerged as Prithviraj’s third Rs 30 crore plus grosser after Ennu Ninte Moideen and Amar Akbar Antony.
Ezra has been praised for the performances of the entire cast including Prithviraj, Priya Anand, Tovino Thomas and Maheshinte Prathikaram fame Sujith Shankar. The film also features the 2015 Kerala state award winner Sudev Nair, Vijayaraghavan, Alencier Lopez and Ann Sheetal in other pivotal roles.
