There is a lot to unpack in Jigarthanda DoubleX. But this packed nature of the film also comes with a lot of clarity. Everything does come together. This is a gorgeous looking film with a lot to discuss! A lot about the filmmaking as well as the subject!(more)

Karthik Subbaraj's ode to films is part meta cinema, part social commentary
