“It’s a film that really exposes the barbarism in humans. A movie that says we are worse than animals. Humans behave worse than animals. This is wonderfully shown in this movie. This is a movie we can all be proud of. Not only the story but also the movie is very well shot. The emotions in the movie move us. Lijo is a very talented director. “There are many reasons why we voted for ‘Jallikattu’,” Rahul said.
