Critics Review


A terrific sequel that is right on the money

George Kutty's fascination for movies and his knowledge from the films he had watched helped him cover up the crime in Drishyam. This movie inclination of George Kutty is what comes in handy here as well but there is a nice little tweak about the whole thing. He is no more just an audience but a creator himself.(more)

Mohanlal is back in a surprisingly satisfying sequel to a spectacular first film

Drishyam 2 is an enjoyable experience, not only because of the tension of wondering whether Georgekutty, Rani and their daughters will finally crack, but also because Jeethu paints a convincing picture of small-town life, displays an understanding of human psychology and ties up most other loose ends neatly.(more)

Mohanlal Returns with More Vigour and Charisma

While Mohanlal sparkles with his cunning outsmarting cops in ways they could never even dream of, the other actors really do not match up to him. In the end, it falls upon him to carry the film on his shoulder. (more)

A gripping thriller

It is not always that a sequel lives up to the huge expectations of the highly successful original. Drishyam 2 does that in a brilliant way. Go for this one! (more)

The strongly written sequel is a gripping watch, with Mohanlal and Jeethu Joseph recreating the Drishyam magic

Drishyam consciously manages to steer away from all those, and stays completely focussed till the end. There are no commercial compromises, to an extent where even a star like Mohanlal has literally zero mass scenes. Even towards the climax, we expect him to fold his dhoti into half and breed swagger as he walks towards the camera with a mass background score, but all we see is a superstar walking with his head bent down.(more)

Jeethu unearths another layer by highlighting how the lack of communication between couples, especially with the husband not entirely opening up, often leads to hurting the very people he has taken upon himself to protect. Drishyam 2 also doesn't glorify its hero's actions, nor does it justify it; in fact, it mirrors the heavy guilt and the toll it takes on him and his family. (more)

A decent follow-up to a much celebrated film

Jeethu does manage to break that aura later, with the slow unravelling of Georgekutty's plans. He had before him the daunting task of building a follow-up from the same original story, every possibility of which was discussed thread-bare after the movie's release. (more)
