Drishyam 2: Movie lovers, esecially malayalees were waiting for Drishyam 2, that wait was not in vain. Goes above and beyond the expectation. It’s not easy to craft murder-mystery sequels. Jeethu Joseph’s film jumps over the familiarity hurdle by broadening its ambit on crime and punishment.

drishyam 2 movie review
Drishyam 2 cast: Mohanlal, Meena, Ansiba Hassan, Esther Anil, Murali Gopi, Saikumar, Asha Sarath
Drishyam 2 director: Jeethu Joseph
Drishyam 2 rating: Three stars

A suspense thriller without a single fight scene or bloodshed. The actor is the brain of Jeethu Joseph, who was able to prepare the story for the exact logic of a commercial film. If we ask who is the man of the match, we can only tell the story. Even though it is through the OTT platform, the first mega hit of the post-Kovida era is being born in Malayalam!

Mohanlal starrer Drishyam 2 has released today and is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The story of Georgekutty and his family picks up after the events of the first film where the family went through a trauma but were somehow able to pull off ‘a perfect murder’. But is there something like a ‘perfect murder’? We get the answer to that question when ghosts of the past come back to haunt Georgekutty.

Alongside Mohanlal, Drishyam 2 also stars Meena, Ansiba Hassan, Esther Anil, Asha Sarath, and Siddique among others. Jeethu Joseph has directed the film.

From what we gathered from the trailer, Georgekutty has become a much wealthier man now. He now owns a theatre and is even planning to produce a film. Things seem to be getting difficult for him and his family, and now the murder case from Drishyam is reopened and the family is pulled back into the investigation.

In an interview, Mohanlal spoke about the sequel. “We had been planning to do Drishyam 2 (for a long time). It was in my mind, Antony Perumbavoor’s mind, and Jeethu’s mind. And suddenly it happened. When Drishyam 2 started rolling, we were all prepared. We weren’t sure when this film would happen. But, it had to happen. Georgekutty and his family should be remembered by the audience. Because it was such a cult film. Thanks to Jeethu for bringing out such an intelligent film,” he said.

Second Part


Preparing the second part of any successful film is extremely difficult and obligatory. It's one of the most talked about movies in the world. The story of Scene 2 has been the most talked about topic on social media in recent times. What fantasies were people writing about? Jeethu Joseph should be given a horseman there too. The story of the film shatters all these predictions. It was a movie that would have worked if the story had gone a little wrong. But logically, without mocking the common sense of the audience, without giving any of the benefits of being a hero superstar, Jeethu Joseph carried a strong story.

That too without getting bored for a second. From a thief who runs away to save Pathirak's life, he sees George Kutty (Mohanlal in the picture) coming down from the police station. The song is slowed down by a song that has been criticized by some on Facebook for being too convenient for those who need to go to the toilet. But soon the director regains that momentum.

It should be noted that this thriller is taken without any obvious violence. We have seen this kind of craft in all foreign movies. No one in the Jose Prakash model will praise Weldon Jeetu as Weldon.

George Kutty Reloaded


Scene 2 depicts George Kutty, who has completely changed his ways. Not only did his beard grow, but his change. George is not the kid he used to be on the old cable TV today. He is a filmmaker. He builds a theater in the name of his wife, the 'Queen', with a piece of land and a loan. And the attempt to make a movie begins. Fifteen lakh rupees was wasted to make a story in his mind into a film. He is also arguing with his wife Rani (Meena in the picture) over this. Most importantly, he has started drinking. George Kutty says that he wants to get in a mood when telling stories with filmmakers.

George Kutty's family has all the trouble of hiding a terrible secret. Jeet handles that part completely psychologically. His wife and daughter are really in a prison of terror. The daughter is also an epileptic. They would be shocked to hear the sound of a jeep. George Kutty and his family are receiving a heavy sentence for Varun's murder.

If in the first part of the scene the natives were with the whole George child, in the second part, which takes place six years later, it is not so. As he grew financially with the theater owner and others, the locals turned against him. Now that old tea shop owner Kakka, played by Kozhikode Narayanan Nair, is the only one who believes that George Kutty did not do this. The fact that he himself killed Varun is still active in the folklore. Still that question remains. Where is Varun's body? The core of the film is how to find the characters in that 'secret' movie that the audience knows.

The film's suspense shifts from where the police intervene to trap George and his family as a result, and his family becomes more defensive. It takes the audience to a stunning climax. There are also some clever interventions that Jeet makes. Not a word is spoken to it. Let the audience know.

'To be honest, we're not watching him, he's watching us'! SP says at the end of the film. And the comment 'The man is a classic criminal'. The success of the director is where the audience feels the same way when they see the film.
