Kerala’s former health minister KK Shailaja is all praise for actress Lijomol Joseph after witnessing her recent legal drama Jai Bhim. She wrote in her recent Facebook post that Lijomol had completely transformed into the character and any award would not honour her enough for the extraordinary performance.

Shailaja further hailed the Suriya-starrer for its realistic portrayal of the feudal mindset and caste discrimination that pulls our country down. She also extended the note explaining the gruesome police brutality, an action showing zero compassion or humanity. She thinks that Jai Bhim has depicted the same too. 

She added that the oppressed haven’t been able to climb up the social ladder yet even after seven decades of independence, and being in a country that relies upon the Ambedkar-written Constitution. She is of the opinion that this is because of the inability of the ruling class, and wrote that director Gnanavel has aptly captured the legal battles of Justice Chandru. She also took a few words to thank Suriya for his performance. 

The former minister also appreciated other prominent actors in the movie, by extending her post to a longer one. Actors like Prakash Raj among others who have essayed negative roles have also done an excellent job, according to her. She ended on a thanking note to Suriya and Jyotika for backing the movie.

Jai Bhim, helmed by T J Gnanavel, is all about the legal battle fought by an advocate for a pregnant woman from an oppressed community, seeking her missing husband. Besides Suriya and Lijomol essaying the lead roles, it also has K Manikandan, Rajisha Vijayan, Prakash Raj and Rao Ramesh in vital roles. The film was released on Amazon Prime Video on November 2 and is available for online streaming.
