Previously, writer-director Jeo Baby had opened up about The Great Indian Kitchen during a conversation with The Quint. He also spoke about drawing inspiration for the film from his own life. “After my marriage, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen, I did it because I wanted to share the space with my wife. When I entered the kitchen, I was practically stuck there, it was totally frustrating because there is a huge workload. It’s an endless job is what I felt at that time and I thought about all the women who are stuck in the kitchen and I felt like the kitchen is a jail for a woman’s life,” he said to the publication.
The film stars Suraj Venjaramoodu, Nimisha Sajayan, T. Suresh Babu, Ajitha V.M., and Ramadevi in key roles. The film follows the life of a newlywed woman who struggles to match the expectations of a demure and submissive wife. The film was originally released on a Malayalam streaming service named NeeStream, but Amazon Prime Video eventually got the rights to the film.
