The raging fever of Jallikattu in Kollywood

Jallikattu is more than a ritual to the traditional essence of Tamil culture and we need no words to delineate them here. For the ones, who weren’t completely aware of it, the year’s revolutionary attempt has imprinted a non-erasable history. In fact, Tamil cinema and Jallikattu has been an inseparable part over the years.... It has been evident with the superstar movies beyond decades that include Superstar Rajinikanth’s Murattu Kaalai, Cheran Pandian, Rajakumaran, Kamal Haasan’s Virumaandi, Enga Ooru Pattukkaran and many more.

In the recent times after the ‘Jallikattu’ ordinance protest stormed up, many movies are banking up with the theme.

In this exclusive feature from Top 10 Cinema, we bring you a sneak look in the recent movies of such paradigms.

1. Santhana Devan

The film starring Arya and his younger brother Sathya was launched on the very same situation of Jallikattu protest. Director Ameer wielding the megaphone had made lots of boastful announcements that a song would be written, composed and released as single track by Yuvan Shankar Raja- Vairamuthu combo in just 24 hours, which happened. It was also the posters and creative cardboard set works at movie launch that engrossed crowds.

2. Mersal

One among the three avatars of Vijay in Mersal is reported to be a village head. The first look involving him was shown in the backdrops of Jallikattu ground and moreover, the font logo of Mersal was styled up as Bull’s outline. This created an instant enthrallment among everyone, especially Vijay fans.

3. Madura Veeran

Vijaykanth’s son plays the lead role in this film and this was a recent launch of first look that had a powerful outlook with the Jallikattu concept. Moreover, with the title being ‘Madura Veeran’, one can sense up how powerful it is going to be on the big screens.

4. Karuppan

This has become an instant addiction from the launch of first look motion poster, where Vijay Sethupathi is seen taming a Jallikattu Bull. Touted to be an out and out rural entertainer, we need to wait and watch how far the title has significance with the Jallikattu.

5. Ilami

Although, the film didn’t go through a perfect phase in box office, the film completely focussed on Jallikattu issues, which focussed upon feud between two villages that involves this game.
