Lijo Jose has taken the bull, by its horns
8 October 2019 | by shyammukundanSee all my reviews

"Jallikattu" Malayalam movie. Lijo Jose Pallisserry, as a director, has highlighted his credentials in 'Ameen, Ankamaly diaries, Ee. Ma. Yu'. Even the pace of these movies differ, so did the themes. This movie is the screenplay adaption of the book 'Maoist' by late Hareesh.

This presentation is all about a small high range village and it's simpletons. The chaos starts as a buffalo escapes from the butcher house of 'Kaalan Varkey'- the butcher and his assistant Antony. The whole village gets involved as the escapee destroys crops and damages properties. Then follows the confusion and frenzy scenes ... leading to the inevitable climax.

Each and every character has be measured to perfection and pasted on the presentation by the director. As the chaos starts, audience is introduced to every character in depth and the symbolisation begins. The unity during commotions and the diversification in the name of 'petty sects' is the projection from the community itself. Every character has their own egoistic self interest, to be worked out during the time of confusion.

The 'beat' of the presentation is established in the opening shots of the movie itself. That keeps the audience, on the edge of their seats, through the tense moments. Camera work is superb, taking the audience into the depths of the movie. 'Mission impossible, Sahoo' are movies made to thrill us, with car chases and action sequences... Here, similar thrill is presented with the buffalo loose in the village... Action sequences and chases are vividly exposed by the observant camera work.

9.5 on 10 for this 'Bull in a China shop'

The theme represents the society and it's chaotic life. The characters lose their human nature, bringing out the beast in themselves. Hats off to the director for this chaotic extravaganza, managing his team and battalion of villagers, to give the audience a spell-binding thriller. Audience will be anxious, throughout the 130 minutes of story telling. Blink your eyes, you miss a lot, here... Watch out.. the BUFFALO is aiming for you.
