It’s a wrap for Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Jallikattu
Lijo Jose Pelissery had been working on his new movie, ‘Jallikkattu’, for the last couple of months. Shoot came to an end last day in Kattappana. The movie is based on S Hareesh’s short story ‘Maoist’, which discusses about the Maoist situation and a person’s right to freedom, from the point of view of two buffaloes.
‘Jallikkattu’ has Antony Varghese in the lead role. Though the makers are yet to announce the cast, it is said that Vinayakan and Sabumon Abdusamad are playing the other major roles. According to Lijo, the movie is a satire told with a lot of humour. Taking the crux out of Hareesh’s short story, they have developed a screenplay which explores the beastly side of man. Lijo believes that it is an idea that hasn’t been explored much before.
‘Jallikkattu’ technical crew comprises of ‘Angamaly Diaries’ composer Prashanth Pillai and cinematographer Girish Gangadharan. Deepu Joseph is handling the edits and Renganaath Ravee is in charge of the sound design. Release date is expected to be announced soon.
