The supernatural thriller is running to packed houses on the second day as well. The film’s leading lady, Priya Anand, is also happy with the kind of response her debut Malayalam film is receiving from the fans and the media. She posted a picture on her Instagram account showing a housefull board at a theatre even as she continues to promote the film in Kerala.

Reports said that film theatres have added extra shows to accommodate the interests of the audience as Ezra is now holding the number one spot at the box office.

In Hebrew, Ezra means “cry for help,” which is also linked to the theme of the film. The director has explored Kerala’s Jewish background, a road less travelled by the filmmakers in the Malayalam film industry.

The film is majorly shot at Fort Kochi, which was once home to a thriving-Jewish community. However, now it only has a handful of Jews living in the area, who serve as the living testimony to their community’s long history in the God’s own country.
