Drishyam was undoubtedly one of the best thrillers to come out of the Indian film industry. The 2015 film was the Hindi adaptation of the Malayalam film which came out two years earlier. Directed by Jeetu Joseph, the film is based on the Japanese novel, The Devotion of Suspect X, a crime masterpiece by Keigo Higashino. Drishyam 2 is again a remake. This time, the challenge before the main protagonist Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay Devgan) is different from the first time.

What is it about…

Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay Devgan) has become prosperous and is living a prosperous life with his family. The past haunts him but he has nominated his family to act as if nothing ever happened. Meera Deshmukh (Tabu) and her husband Mahesh (Rajat Kapoor) are living with the pain of not even being able to perform the last rites of their son properly. She still wants justice. The new IG of Police and Meera’s close friend Tarun Ahlawat (Akshaye Khanna) enters the scene. He is a smart cop and obsessed with the case. Is this the end of Vijay Salgaonkar and his family?

what’s hot

Drishyam 2 has all the key ingredients of a good thriller. There is a constant element of tension, heightened scenes and a climax that will blow your mind. We won’t give any spoilers here. Talking about the performances, Ajay Devgn and Tabu steal the show. His eyes talk all the time. Akshaye Khanna brings flair, swag and menace to the role of Tarun. Shriya Saran is also in good form. Filmmaker Abhishek Pathak deserves a pat on the back. The film shines on all fronts be it performances, technical aspects and emotions. Sudhir K Choudhary’s camerawork is amazing. The BGM given by Devi Sri Prasad also works well for the film. The vibe of the film is contemporary and you will relate on every front. It is also a big screen film as the film has its own share of atmosphere. Fans of TV show Ghoom Rahe Kisi Ke Pyar Mein will be happy to see actor Siddharth Bodke, popularly known as Jagtap.

what is not

The first half is a build-up to the unbelievable climax. Some may find it a bit uneven but it is insignificant. The only issue is that fans of the franchise must have seen the Malayalam version that released and would know the twist.


Drishyam 2 is one movie that will leave you cheering in the hall, and will have you talking about the climax for days. This is one film that you should not miss.
