The protagonist of Jallikattu is a buffalo who runs for his life from the knife edge of a butcher from the slaughterhouse. In the midst of a life-and-death patch, the buffalo threatens the villagers.

Lijo transforms a story that can be told in a single line into a visual experience that can be seen in an hour and thirty minutes.

Wildness beautifies every frame of Jallikattu. Lijo talks about the animal, the animal desires and instinct in the mind people. These ideas are not expressed through long conversations, but through pure visual narration.
