Actor Mohanlal’s upcoming movie Drishyam 2, a sequel to the 2013 hit Drishyam, is slated to release on Amazon Prime Video on Friday (February 19) much to the delight of fans. The film has created a fair deal of buzz in the industry, which suggests that it may prove to be a gamechanger for all concerned. Here is a look at five reasons to watch Drishyam 2.
The success of Drishyam
Drishyam emerged as a runaway hit at the box office while receiving rave reviews from critics. The thriller was subsequently remade in various languages, attaining cult status. Drishyam 2 is likely to take the franchise forward while giving fans a closer look at the much-loved protagonist Georgekutty.
Drishyam struck a chord with the janta as it celebrated family bonding while highlighting that one can go to any extent to protect his loved ones. The trailer of Drishyam 2 suggests that the film too will have a similar theme. If this is indeed the case, it might be able to match the standards set by the prequel.
Mohanlal had told DH that he could not relate to Georgekutty’s actions in Drishyam 2 as he found him to be a mystery. This suggests that the film will have a layered and complex narrative. If this is indeed the case, the film might give ‘Lalettan’ the ideal platform to showcase his abilities as a performer.
Strong supporting cast
Drishyam 2 has a stellar supporting cast that includes Meena, Esther Anil and Ansiba. The actors had impressed fans with their work in the first part and are likely to bring their A-game this time around as well. Their reel equation with Mohanlal is expected to be the highlight of the movie.
Drishyam featured a gripping climax that practically blurred the lines between ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ while giving fans food for thought. The buzz is that the sequel has a powerful and emotional finale, which may match the one seen in the first part.
