12th Man marks the fourth collaboration of Mohanlal and Jeethu Joseph after the Drishyam franchise and another project which is currently on hold. Jeethu Joseph comes up with a mystery thriller this time.
When a group of college friends and their companions (11 members) take on a trip to the woods, they expect a journey of everything except being tangled in a nightmarish situation. While they enjoy a party, Mohanlal joins them as an unexpected guest, the 12th Man. Though he is introduced as an alcoholic who disturbs their otherwise happy trip, it looks like there is more to him than what is revealed.
All of these events take place on a single night. When someone falls from a viewpoint, their vacation turns into a locked-room thriller where each of their secrets is bound to be revealed.
