5 reasons why we’re so excited for Drishyam 2

I guess 2020 isn’t all bad. Drishyam 2 has gone to the floors and just this morning, the cast and crew shared pictures of the inaugural puja conducted before shooting begins. Life seems to be going almost back to normal. Maybe we’ll have an exciting movie to watch in the upcoming year. Directed by Jeethu Joseph and starring Mohanlal, Meena, Asha Sharath and others, Drishyam was a huge success, both at the box office and critically, and has also been called a gamechanger in the film world. There are many reasons to be excited for this sequel.

Hello, do you remember the plot of Drishyam?

In a film that forever changed the way we watch crime thrillers, Drishyam followed the story of Georgekutty and his attempts to cover up a murder. The film was bone-chilling and super exciting. A must-watch for all.

Drishyam 2 is supposedly going to be about the same characters, and where they are 7 years later. Jeethu Joseph, the director, said it’s about “how the family responds to life after the crisis”. This sequel is more family drama-centric, rather than crime centric.

The killer cast

Mohanlal. Meena. Ansiba Haasan. Esther Anil. Siddique. Asha Sarath. Kalabhavan Shajon. All the major cast members of the first film are back on screen along with some new great additions, and we’re so excited to see where it goes. Have their relationships changed over the years? If so, how? What’s happening in the family’s life? So. Many. Questions.

This means there will definitely be a Hindi remake

It’s inevitable, right. Sigh. Anyway, the first remake wasn’t all that bad so we’re just hoping that Bollywood stays true to the ethos of Drishyam 2 when they remake it. Who knows, maybe Ajay Devgn won’t be all bad.

It means that there is some hope for 2020

The year has gone from depressing to absurdly depressing. I don’t even want to start listing the reasons why, because it will be a depressingly neverending list. But the fact that artists are still making art, that filmmakers are still making films and want to keep us entertained, means there is hope. Human beings cope with the absurdities of life by keeping ourselves occupied and entertained. That’s why movies are so important.

Drishyam 2 means that Mollywood is back to make our lives better

The Malayalam film industry has always been radical and has held high standards of film and entertainment. Jeethu Joseph is one of their best directors and Mohanlal is one of the most loved, most skilled actors. From writing authentic storylines to creating strong, independent female characters, Mollywood has (generally) not disappointed us in the past, and will hopefully not disappoint us again. Drishyam 2 seems to be an exciting homage to the Georgekutty family, and who doesn’t love a good family drama? I know I do.
