DRISHYAM 2 REVIEW – JEETHU-MOHANLAL THRILLER IS A SUPERB SEQUEL

There is no such thing as a perfect crime. The criminal always leaves behind his or her mark; whether that is discovered or not depends on a number of factors. However, in Jeethu Joseph’s 2013 film Drishyam, the audience was left convinced at the end that Georgekutty (Mohanlal) had indeed pulled it off. He had hoodwinked the police forever and it was all over. But cinema is different from reality and crime has a way of catching up with the guilty.

And no one knows this better than the cinema-crazy Georgekutty who has learnt life lessons from the popular art, sitting in the small office of his cable TV operation. In Drishyam 2, a sequel that was highly anticipated with much misgiving by fans (how can that story possibly be continued?), Georgekutty and family receive an upgrade in life. It’s six years since Varun’s body was buried under the police station in Rajakkad, and nobody has a clue what Georgekutty had done though the police won’t stop sniffing around him.
