*No Spoilers ahead*
The lives of George Kutty (Mohanlal), Rani (Meena), and their daughters (Ansiba Hassan and Esther Anil) changed upside down after the crime they committed 6 years back. George Kutty became immensely successful as a businessman, while his elder daughter still struggles with mental trauma. However, things change once the investigation officer (Murali Gopy) finds another lead.
Script & Direction
Jeethu Joseph, the writer-director has crafted a brilliant sequel, that lives up to the legacy of the blockbuster Drishyam. The clever storytelling succeeds in throwing the audiences into a pool of emotions in the first half and provides a nail-biting thriller experience in the second half. Drishyam 2 also follows the first installment with the mind-blowing climax twist, that drifts away from all pre-conceived notions we had about the film.
Mohanlal once again sets the screen on fire by portraying George Kutty to near perfection. The superstar steals the show with his signature ‘Lal bhaavams’ that showcases his immense flexibility and effortlessness as an actor. Mohanlal once again reminds us why he is considered one of the finest actors in the country with Drishyam 2.
Meena, on the other hand, proves that she is one of the best onscreen pairs of Mohanlal, with her magical chemistry with the complete actor. The actress also scores well in the emotional sequences. Murali Gopy surprises in the film with his subtle yet powerful performance. We really wish to watch the talented actor-writer in more author-backed roles. The rest of the star cast, including Ansiba Hassan, Esther Anil, Siddique, Anjali Nair, Asha Sarath, Kozhikode Narayanan Nair, and so on are perfect in their respective roles.
Drishyam 2 is a brilliantly crafted crime thriller that lives up to the legacy of its blockbuster first installment. Mohanlal and director Jeethu Joseph strike gold once again with the movie definitely worth a watch.
