Prithviraj Sukumaran's Aadujeevitham (The Goat Life), directed by Blessy, has done well at the box office and received positive reviews. Benyamin's 2008 bestselling Malayalam novel The Goat Life tells a terrifying tale.

Official reports on these reports are not yet available. Earlier rumours said the film would broadcast on OTT platforms on May 10. Unfortunately, the news was untrue.

In Aadujeevitham, Prithviraj Sukumaran plays Kerala migrant labourer Najeeb, a goat herder forced into servitude. The video depicts his harrowing ordeal Najeeb worked on a remote Saudi farm. The Blessy-directed thriller premiered to good reviews, and Najeeb attended.

Though overwhelmed, he told Times Now he appreciated the “tremendous” representation. Najeeb attended the film in hopes that Aadujeevitham would resonate despite his personal pain. 

In an interview, he shared his emotional reaction, stating, “I spent most of the scenes in tears, and at times, it was too painful to watch. I’ve received numerous messages from people saying they’ve booked their tickets and are eager to see the film … My infant grandson passed away last week.” Najeeb said his family urged him to attend the event despite the situation. Unless his family encouraged him, he wouldn't have considered it. Najeeb ended the conversation by expressing he simply wants the film to succeed and be seen by everyone.
