Malayalam film 'The Great Indian Kitchen' arrives on Amazon Prime Video

The film had debuted on digital platform Neestream


Critically acclaimed Malayalam film The Great Indian Kitchen is now available on Amazon Prime Video, almost two months after it began streaming on the digital platform Neestream.

Director Jeo Baby took to social media to share the news and thanked the audience for the support.

“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 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 while the husband, a teacher, spends his free time doing yoga, appearing at the dinner table expecting a nice meal. The father-in-law (played by T Suresh Babu) is the other entitled male of the house, who can't even brush his teeth without his wife handing him a brush with toothpaste.

"There are no names for the characters because I generalised them. They are everywhere in the society, in our houses and around us. We can see discrimination against women everywhere in our society. It is not just limited to the kitchen but it begins from our homes, this is why I focused on this," Baby had said earlier.
