As the name suggests, "Jilebi" is a sweet tale with a rustic flavour of Kerala's countryside. After the film opened to positive reviews on 31 July, actor Jayasurya took to his Facebook page to write a letter addressed to God.

In his letter, actor Jayasurya thanks the almighty as well as movie-goers for making his latest film a successful venture. The actor vouches that even a diabetic person can try this "homely Jilebi."

പ്രിയപ്പെട്ട ദൈവത്തിന് ,നിങ്ങൾ ഒരു പുലിയാണ് ,വെറും പുലിയല്ല ,സിംഹപ്പുലി ...എന്റെ പ്രാർത്ഥന കേട്ടത്തിന് കെട്ടിപ്പിടിച്ച...

എൻറെ ജിലേബി എന്ന ചിത്രം ആനയായിരിക്കും ചേനയായിരിക്കും എന്നൊന്നും ഞാൻ പറയുന്നില്ല , നിങ്ങൾ തന്നെ കണ്ടിട്ട് അഭിപ്രായം പറയൂ...
