‘Nayattu’ directed by Martin Prakkat is a hard-hitting and thought-provoking film about how three cops get victimized by the government. Joju George, Nimisha Sajayan and Kunchacko Boban played the leads. Upon its theatrical release in April this year, the film failed to emerge as a box office hit. But it found success after its release on Netflix. Many including non-Malayalis heaped praise on the making and performances. There was also a section of netizens and critics who criticized the film’s politics.
Recently, ‘Nayattu’ was also among the films shortlisted for India’s official entry to the Oscar Awards but it failed to make the cut.
