“Only because of Great Audience N @neestream Thank you all Now streaming on @primevideoin,” he wrote alongside the film’s poster.

The Great Indian Kitchen revolves around a nameless newlywed couple, played by Nimisha Sajayan and Suraj Venjaramoodu. The wife is a dance enthusiast but post-marriage her life is spent in cooking and cleaning.

Though the story is largely focused on one household, it also deals with the politics around the entry of women in Sabarimala Temple. In an interview with PTI in January, Jeo Baby was asked whether he faced any issues for including a politically contentious topic like Sabarimala ban of women of menstruating age.

“I did not face any issue directly. There is some discussion on social media and television. But if there is an issue and I spot that I will tell that story without any hesitation,” he had replied.

Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta shared in her review of the film, “This is a film, which needs to be essential watching. The characters are very specific, the locations are in Kerala, but the situations that obtain through the film are horrifyingly universal.”
