Geetu Mohandas is all praise for Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Jallikattu
Maverick filmmaker Lijo Jose Pelissery’s ‘Jallikattu’ is one of the most awaited Malayalam films of the year. The movie which is currently in the post-production phase is expected to hit screens shortly. Recently, Geetu Mohandas and Anurag Kashyap had a special screening of the movie and it seems like they were mighty impressed by Lijo’s work.
Geetu has shared a couple of photos from the screening in her official social media page. Along with that, she has also written,
Lijo is back with his Magic and Madness in #JALLIKATTU. Loved it !
Earlier, actor Indrajith Sukumaran had also said that ‘Jallikattu’ is an outstanding work. Lijo’s last two films – ‘Angamaly Diairies’ and ‘Ee Maa Yau’ got nationwide acclaim. So expectations are naturally on the higher side for ‘Jallikattu’. The movie starring Antony Varghese and Sabumon in major roles is based on S Hareesh’s short story ‘Maoist’. It discusses about the Maoist situation and a person’s right to freedom, from the point of view of two buffaloes.
According to Lijo, ‘Jallikkattu’ is a satire told with lot of humour. Taking the crux out of Hareesh’s short story, they have developed a screenplay which explores the beastly side of man. The director is of the opinion that it is an idea that hasn’t been explored much before in Malayalam.
