The Priest is a 2021 Indian Malayalam-language supernatural horror mystery film directed by debutant Jofin T. Chacko,which marks the first collaboration of Mammootty and Manju Warrier in their career. Produced jointly by B. Unnikrishnan and Anto Joseph, the film features original score and soundtrack composed and produced by Rahul Raj. The film was scheduled to release on 31 July 2020 on the occasion of Eid Al Adha, but production was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in India. The film released on 11 March 2021 to mostly positive reviews with the performances and background score garnering unanimous praise. The film streams on Amazon Prime.

The Priest follows the adventures of Father Carmen Benedict. He is pleaded by a girl, Diya, to investigate a string of suicides in the rich Alatt family. Elizabeth Alatt is the only surviving member; Father Benedict and a police officer fixes an appointment to meet her the next day and inquire about the mysterious suicides. However, she commits suicide at night. The only person present with Elizabeth was Ameya Gabriel, a 11-year old orphan girl whom she picked up in Chennai. Ameya, a quiet and morose girl, was running away from the orphanage. Ameya is rescued and sent back to the orphanage where an attempt on her life the same night warns Father Benedict and the police of a grave conspiracy, implying that she had seen Elizabeth’s killer.

Father Benedict hires few local workers to search the premises of the Alatt house. A strip of strong psychiatric pills are found on the ground; the pills could be prescribed only by a registered medical practitioner. Further investigation reveals that Elizabeth was under the treatment of Dr. Sanjay as well as all the other Alatt family members who committed suicide. Upon questioning, Dr. Sanjay admits to brainwashing Elizabeth to commit suicide and names two other accomplices. The case so unfolds that all three of them were members of the Alatt Trust and conspired to kill the family to gain control of the Alatt family business, money, and power. They confess and are sentenced to jail.

It is then revealed in the interval that Diya Alex had been passed away and it was her ghost that communicated with Fr. Benedict while she was invisible to others in the society. Though the Alatt family murders are solved, Father Benedict finds a mysterious and strange aura around Ameya, who remained tight-lipped about Elizabeth’s murder and never cooperated with the police. Ameya always remained gloomy, sad, unhappy, and foul-tempered until a new teacher, Jessie Cherian, joined the school. Jessie takes Ameya under her wing, and steadily her grades and behaviour improved. It is revealed that Father Benedict had been tracking Ameya’s conduct constantly and warns Jessie that one day she would need his help in dealing with Ameya.

Summer vacations arrived, and Ameya coaxes Jessie to get permission from the orphanage in-charge to allow her to spend 2-months of vacation with Jessie. Time passes in bliss for few weeks until Siddharth, Jessie’s fiancé, enters the story. Ameya’s complete demeanour changes on seeing Siddharth; she storms away, breaks glass with her hand, and eerily hounds Jessie while stating they both of them do not need anyone else in their lives. Scared, Jessie contacts Father Benedict who states that Ameya is possessed by the soul of Elizabeth, and she could be saved only by exorcism.

However, during exorcism, Father Benedict realises that the soul is not of Elizabeth but of Susan, who was the elder sister of Jessie and died during an accident around 11 years back. Through flashback scenes, it is revealed that Susan and Jessie lost their parents when Jessie was a toddler. Susan raises Jessie, and becomes a sports teacher in the school where Jessie and Siddharth studied.

One day, Jessie sneaks out of home to attend a party with Siddharth and their common friends. Both get drunk, and while driving back, they hit a scooter being driven by Susan, who was searching for Jessie. It is revealed that Susan’s soul possessed Ameya at birth to seek revenge from Siddharth for causing her death and separating her from Jessie. However, Father Benedict revealed that it was Jessie who was driving that fateful night and she had unknowingly caused the accident in a drunken state. Siddharth was simply trying to protect Jessie, who was still unaware of the reality, from the consequences. Susan’s soul leaves Ameya’s body after knowing the reality.

The story ends with a twist though. Flashback scenes revealed that when Susan was taken to the hospital after the accident, she could have been saved. But, the doctor, Dr. Muraleedharan chose to end her life to protect his friend, a sports teacher who was caught by Susan for administrating steroids to students. Father Benedict helped Susan’s soul to exact revenge from the duo – seeing her ghost, their car swerved and had an accident, and both of them died. The movie ends with Father Benedict saying, “now Susan, you can rest in peace”.
