With the police coming to interrogate him, Jojo tries to commit suicide by utilizing the identical airgun after giving his ‘homicide confession. However like at all times, even this plan of his would not work for him.
Why Did Joji Fail?
After all, Crime by no means pays, besides in case you are a politician. However within the case of Joji, he was sure to fail from the beginning itself. For all of the malevolence and greediness that he shows, Joji is not crafty or shrewd sufficient to drag off a homicide convincingly. He could not have gotten away murdering his father, if his sister-in-law who witnessed him changing the tablets, had ratted him out. Bincy who desires to hunt an impartial existence outdoors her father-in-law’s home, would have additionally needed him lifeless. If her intentions had been pure, Joji would have gone to jail already.
Joji has additionally to rely upon Google to search for concepts to drag him out of sticky conditions. He has no clue about what even is occurring round his home, in any other case he wouldn’t even gone fishing in a pond that was just lately flooded. He even could not pull off a tragic face at his dad’s funeral, as a substitute selecting to cover in his room, which is why Bincy asks him to placed on a masks. Due to COVID-19, the masks made for an excellent cowl for him.
All these present that Joji actually lacks the ingenuity and the temerity to drag off an ideal crime. After murdering Jomon, Joji will get much more cocky considering he acquired away, although he ought to have realised he had left extra breadcrumbs that he supposed. His former schoolmate on whom he pinned the crime, might have informed a distinct story – the true model – from what he informed the cops. Plus, although Joji informed the police that Jomon died in a crude bomb assault, he ought to have realised that the autopsy evaluation would have revealed the air-gun pellets in Jomon’s neck. Jomon’s son, who knew Joji has an air-gun, would have joined the dots, which is strictly what occurred.
Not simply that, Jomon even goes on to cross his solely silent supporter, Bincy, who turns his again on him when the playing cards fell. He thought her wimpy husband would fall for his blackmailing, however the man, possibly fearing his personal life from Joji’s greed, stood his floor, thus leaving Joji with no different possibility however to finish his life.

Like I discussed earlier than, Joji lacks the wits to speak himself out of a scenario, until he has to seek for it on Google. It was simpler for him to look which is the softest half on his cranium, reasonably than know learn how to lie higher. Why, he could not even lie out of Jomon’s questioning and ended up killing him (possibly Jomon’s strangle-hold on Joji reminded the latter of how his father handled him). Joji additionally desires would not need to take accountability for his actions, which is why he blamed the society for what he did, whereas borrowing his lifeless brother’s quote (“Society is a f**ker!”). Instructed ya he’s lazy!
In a nutshell, Joji isn’t any Georgekutty from Drishyam saga, the latter who’s well-prepared and is at all times one step forward of his adversaries. In contrast to Joji, Georgekutty genuinely cares for the individuals who loves, and what he does as against the law is to merely defend them. Georgekutty suffers from the guilt of what he does, so possibly that is why Luck was nonetheless in his favour. Which is rarely in any respect the case with Joji.

What Will Occur to Him?
Because the credit started, we realise that Joji’s suicide try wasn’t profitable, and as a substitute he’s left paralysed. We see him mendacity within the hospital mattress when the physician (performed by the director himself) brings in a DYSP, who asks Joji if he is able to make a confession. What an motionless Joji wanted to do was to blink his eyes and settle for his crimes. However he would not. Even in his situation, Joji is cussed sufficient to not personal what he has finished, although all proof is now pointing in opposition to him. We’re additionally undecided if Joji’s paralysis is a everlasting situation or not. Regardless of the case is, Joji’s future is bleak as he turns into a sufferer of Destiny’s whimsical sense of justice.
