Drishyam: A Gripping Thriller!

We believe what we see and we only see what we are shown. This is what “Drishyam” is all about.

The title “Drishyam” is actually the best title this plot could have got. It narrates the story of a common man Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay Devgn) and his family.
Vijay, a cable operator lives a happy life with his wife Nandini Salgaonkar (Shriya Saran) and two daughters in Pandolem. His elder daughter, Anju was adopted though. He has a habit of watching movies and being a cable operator was best profession he could have ended up in. He is a total movieholic lad.

One day Anju on  requesting her parents finally gets the permission  to go for an interschool nature’s  camp. In the camp she meets Sam, who looks like a spoilt brat and is always shown taking pictures of the fellow girls in the camp. One of the girls determines herself to go against him and lodges a complaint. So finally he stops doing that. But he somehow shoots a video of Anju while she was bathing. He tries to blackmail her to get unethical benefits from her by showing this video. He asks her to meet him in the backyard of her house. She reluctantly agrees and takes him to her outhouse, where Nandini was already waiting for them. There they both try to plead and beg him to delete the clip but he doesn’t agrees to do so. He even asks Nandini for some favours in return. In an attempt to break his phone Anju hits him on his head and accidently he is murdered. The next day they narrate the mishappening to Vijay and from here the movie takes a gripping turn.
Sam was the one and only son of Meera Deshmukh (Tabu) and Mahesh (Rajat Kapoor). Meera Deshmkh is an Inspector General of the Police of Goa. After knowing this you must assure yourself  of a great fight between a common man, saving his family and a powerful bureaucrat.
Nishikant Kamath (Director), Jeetu Joseph (Story writter) and Upendra Sindhaye (Screenplay) have formed a great combo and have done a splendid job by recreating the magic of Mohanlal starrer Drishyam (Original Malyalam version, released in 2013). The remake has all what we as viewers can ask for. The only drawback was the first quarter where I felt that the movie was aimless. But keeping a little patience intact I guarantee that you will not be disappointed. The movie will make you feel that you are a part of it. It becomes gripping and this is what viewers expect.

If we have Ajay Devgn and Tabu as leads, we don’t have any window of bad acting. We witnessed a series of brilliant performances by each and every character casted. They all are a part of the magic created here.
Don’t waste your time, go ahead and watch this masterpiece.
