In the mysterious new teaser of Sidharth Bharathan’s Djinn, Soubin’s character appears to be that of a simpleton whose body is taken over by spirits, one after another. With shades of both a horror and a comedy movie, we see different people taking over Soubin, ranging from a regular everyday man, an angry Hindi-speaking character and a party animal.
Add to this strange and different body language for each character and distinct voice modulation for them, the teaser promises a great acting exercise for the already talented actor. Fresh off the success of Bheeshma Parvam, another intense role might just be what Soubin needs to be able to do a wider variety of roles in the future.

Djinn is directed by Sidharth Bharathan after Chandrettan Evideya. Apart from Soubin, it stars Shanthi Balachandran, Shine Tom Chacko, Sharafudheen, and Sabumon.
The film is penned by Rajesh Gopinadhan, who wrote the script for Dulquer Salman’s Kali. The music is by Prashant Pillai and it is produced under the banner Straight Line Cinemas. It is also one of the last works of late K. P. A. C. Lalitha.
