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.
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.
Don’t waste your time, go ahead and watch this masterpiece.
