The Great Indian Kitchen

People outside a woman's household often underestimate her daily tasks and contributions in her household, which often go unseen by those living outside. This film aims to shed light on this topic by depicting monotonous chores undertaken as housework and depicting her struggle between domestic and professional obligations. Released on Nee stream in January 2021, The Great Indian Kitchen by Jeo Baby features Malayalam language drama written and directed by him.

Domestic violence is all too prevalent in India and this film does an outstanding job of depicting its horrors. While many elements stand out about this film, what really stands out are Nimisha Sajayan's performances as she portrays a housewife trying to adjust to her new family while Nimisha also displays how an otherwise respected family can push women into becoming servants for one of their members.

Suraj Venjaramoodu of Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum plays the husband with an engagingly diffident demeanour that makes him relatable despite not fitting the traditional role of an antagonist in movies. The Great Indian Kitchen should receive recognition it rightfully deserves; anyone interested can watch it no matter their national origin; its message about gendered labour can help break down patriarchy globally and bring about change.
