Consider the idiom "bull in a china shop" put on notice, while "buffalo in an Indian village" waits, hoofs stomping, in the wings.

Still, when Jallikattu lets it rip, it's as exciting and unusual an experience as you're likely to get this year. Grab it by its horns and don't dare let go.

Politics runs like a thread through Jallikattu, but the film's intentions are never overt. Even if you watch it simply as a kinetic, exhilarating piece of cinema, it would be a memorably immersive experience.

Less of an 'animal attack' movie, and more of an 'animal trying to get the hell away from people for obvious reasons' movie.

There are visuals here that you will not be able to get out of your head. This film is only 90 minutes and you're not going to be able to look away.

It's a simple story drawn from life but elevated by its engaging screenplay that is raw and realistic.
