Starring Meena Siddique, Asha Sharath, Murali Gopy, Ansiba, Esther, and Saikumar in pivotal roles, Drishyam 2 has been written and directed by Jeetu Joseph and has been produced by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas.
Amazon Original movie Drishyam 2 will take off from where the prequel left and promises to raise the stakes with double the thrills.
The teaser shows George Kutty, played by Mohanlal, delivering dialogue to a police officer from the previous film. “I have never seen police officers as fools. Rather I see them as protectors of people. That is why I believe that sir and this police station will protect me,” he is seen saying, how they are coping with the fallout from the fateful night. With the entire family harboring a secret that could make or break them, the gripping teaser sets the premise of what lies in store.
The teaser perfectly hints that the sequel will be as hooking as the first movie. “Some secrets are meant to stay hidden forever. But there are no secrets that time does not reveal,” are the words that appear in the teaser, in the background of the chilling background score, and glimpses of Mohanlal, Meena, Ansiba, and Esther, the main cast of the sequel, also appear in the teaser.
The movie Drishyam has been directed by Jeethu Joseph and produced by Antony Perumbavoor. The thriller was a blockbuster hit and has been remade into Hindi, under the same title and the protagonist played by Ajay Devgn, and the Tamil version Paapanasam with the central character played by Kamal Haasan.
The movie is centralized on a family of four, where the elder daughter accidentally kills a man who harassed her. The rest of the film deals with how the family stays together to keep the murder buried in secrecy. Earlier, in an interview with TNM, director Jeethu Joseph had said that Drishyam 2 will also be a family drama like the prequel.
“After Drishyam, there have always been questions about a sequel. Lalettan (Mohanlal) would ask me too. And I just didn’t know how to continue that story. Finally, one possibility became clearer than the others I thought of and the story of George Kutty’s family got written again,” Jeethu had said in the interview.
Speaking about the film, popular actor Mohanlal said: “Drishyam was one-of-a-kind thriller, way ahead of its time, that was loved by all. With Drishyam 2, we are taking the story of George Kutty and his family ahead from where we left it off. I am delighted to associate with Amazon Prime Video to release one of the most-awaited movies of the year. Prime Video has helped take some of the best stories of South Indian cinema to avid cinephiles not just in India, but across the world. We know viewers have waited patiently for the sequel – Drishyam 2 is a labor of love, we hope to rise to the expectations of our die-hard fans. So, sit back and enjoy from the safety of your homes with your family and loved ones.”
Vijay Subramaniam, Director and Head, Content, Amazon Prime Video India, adds: “Drishyam is a cult film and fans have been eagerly awaiting its sequel. We are thrilled to bring Drishyam 2 on Amazon Prime Video to customers in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. At Amazon Prime Video, we aim to constantly provide our viewers with content that provides wholesome entertainment, and who better than Mohanlal and Jeetu Joseph to bring that out.”
