A movie to just watch and enjoy, rather than feel its radiance. A movie to see the acting marvels of some of the main actors in Mollywood industry. A movie to match the title. Such is the movie Jallikkattu, directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery. As expected, his movie never has any serious story in it, but his direction speaks for himself throughout the movie.
Gireesh Gangadharan, is a cinematographer, whose work in Jallikkattu, is remarkable. His work is seen throughout the movie. He is the only reason for the good picture quality of the movie.
The plot in Jallikkattu, written by Hareesh S, is commendable, but not so good. But the way Lijo Jose makes it into a movie, makes it worth a watch.
Music by Prashant Pillai is good, but his background music in between certain scenes, seemed unnecessary. Those places require silence, inorder to make the audience glued to their seats.
The lead casting done by Chemban Vinod Jose, Antony Varghese, Sabumon Abdusamad has given a marvelous performance in the movie, and this movie is a showcase of their acting skills.
This movie can be enjoyed once in theatres with friends. It is not a family entertainer, and too much of expectation should not be given to the movie as well. Jallikkattu is a good attempt with a true Lijo Jose Pellissery signature touch in it.
