The film has been depicted wonderfully and it has been shot very well. The emotions, which come out, moved all of us.
Released in Kerala in October 2019, Jallikattu was premiered at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival and the 24th Busan International Film Festival, where it received much acclaim. The movie was particularly praised for Pellissery's spectacular directing effort, ably supported by Girish Gangadharan's cinematography and Renganaath Ravee's wild sound design work. The film which has been nominated by the jury to represent India at the Oscars is the Malayalam film Jallikattu.
