An escaped bull stirs up a frenzy of aggression in a small rural Indian village. Get ready to be gored by cinema’s horns, trampled under a stampede of deliciously grotesque, fleshy imagery and tossed aloft on a buffalo-snort of bravado because Lijo Jose Pellissery’s utterly bonkers Jallikattu is here to pummel you into submission.

A fever-pitch, adrenaline-soaked vortex of social issues drama and deconstruction of the male id, this crazed howl of human brutality morphing inexorably into bestial savagery deserves, and feels destined to find, a willingly cultish following. Jallikattu overtakes every sensory receptor in the human body. Jallikattu commits to unhinged depravity on a level that’s organically difficult to follow.

"Jallikattu is nothing you’ve seen and everything you should risk." - Slash Film
