For years, Jallikattu has served as a tradition among the local communities, where popular names from the towns are involved. Though a sport, increasing one’s reputation and gaining an accolade is very important; and wars are being fought to save this. This ritual has been going on, for time immemorial, and the makers have strived to capture the world of violence, ego, pride, and politics behind this.
The unusual story of the film and the recently released trailer has already garnered interest from the audience. Makers believe that the presentation will take audiences deeper into the world of the sport which has not been seen before.
The show will be led by Kalaiyarasan whereas names like Kishore, Vella Ramamoorthy, Sheelarajkuma will be seen in significant roles.
