Movie review – Drishyam

One of the best suspense thriller movies to come out in the recent times


What happens when you put two strong actors together? You get Drishyam. Tabu and Ajay Devgan, are known to be strong actors, who bring a lot of their character’s emotions on –screen. Drishyam is set in the pristine surrounding of Goa.

Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay Devgan) is a cable operator and had dropped from school after fourth class. His life revolves around movies and his cable company. He lives in Goa with his wife Nandini (Shreya Saran) and daughters Anju (Ishita Dutta) and Anu (Mrinal). He is a simpleton and often refers TV shows to the outside world and he has no qualms about it.

Vijay is living his life quite peacefully and managing his cable operating business when out of nowhere his life turns topsy-turvy. This is the point where the Drishyam’s magic really begins to unfold. IG Meera Deshmukh’s (Tabu) goes missing and Vijay is made the prime suspect in his disappearance. Beyond this point, the movie becomes a game of cat and mouse between the system and high school dropout. Throughout the movie, you are not sure that who will win, this where the story earns huge a bonus.

Initially, Drishyam seems to be a regular run of the mill cop vs criminal movie, this where you are mistaken. Characterization of the primary characters has been done really well and each of them has a strong motive. The lines between right and wrong have been diminished in the movie.

What makes the movie beautiful is that it is a multi-layered story; it could be anybody’s story. I simple words the movie will leave you stunned!
