The film had its world premiere at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival in the Discovery section. Directed by Nithin Lukose and backed by Anurag Kashyap, the Malayalam film tells the story of a feud between two families in a village that has gone on for generations. Paka is set in the deep hilly forests of Wayanad district, a seemingly idyllic part of north Kerala.
The film features an ensemble cast of Basil Paulose, Vinitha Koshy, Jose Kizhakkan, Athul John, Nithin George and Joseph Manickal. Paka had earlier won the best WIP project in the Work-in-Progress Lab of NFDC Film Bazaar 2020.
