Drishyam 2 Movie Story:

Seven years later, Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay Devgn), our sharpest common man, has advanced in society. He went from running a cable company to owning a theater and choosing which movies to screen to make the most money after seeing them all. The family isn’t quite content when the police return, and this time it’s IG Tarun Ahlawat (Akshaye Khanna), Meera Deshmukh’s (Tabu) colleague.

Tarun spends a few years obtaining evidence against Vijay’s family to establish their guilt in court. When he discovers something, he gathers them all; if you’ve seen the prequel, you are familiar with the procedure. In the final hour of the movie, Vijay again goes above and beyond to get his family out of jail for a crime they committed while protecting themselves.

Drishyam 2 Examining the Screenplay

Let me be clear before I start talking about the film’s positives and negatives: it’s a remake, therefore when I laud certain aspects of it, the real credit should go to Jeethu Joseph for doing it in 2021. I particularly included the disclaimer since Jeetu deserves praise for keeping the story’s flow. Although Ajay’s version gains a lot from the original, I felt that the needless embellishments marred the experience.

The forced inclusion of resurrecting the “corrupt” goon Gaitonde distorts the character of the primary investigator (Akshaye Khanna), making him appear “limited” in his study and diminishing the struggle between the two opposing forces. This version vehemently lacks the intrigue that Jeethu’s version established around its village side characters while developing the storyline. The somber scene is made more polished by Sudhir K. Chaudhary’s camerawork, but in retrospect, Jeethu’s attempt to “keep it basic” with Satheesh Kurup seems to have made a bigger impression.

Star-Studded Performance

If you were to imagine actors recreating Mohanlal’s charm from the original, Ajay Devgn would be the ideal choice. The thing that unites the two stars more than anything else is their much-discussed ability to perform through the eyes. We don’t get to see the intense aspect we saw in the prequel because his character’s helplessness is mostly on the calm side for most of the movie.

A few choices made by Shriya Saran’s Nandini character make her a weak point in both the narrative and the movie. Although she doesn’t overdo it, her character does. This isn’t the Akshaye Khanna I was hoping for. Tarun played by Akshaye was not quite as sly and as brilliant as Thomas played by Murali Gopy. Though it’s not the case in the movie, the teaser instantly made me think of his performance from Ittefaq.

Direction, Scoring

The most anticipated outcome occurred, and Abhishek Pathak shouldn’t have added anything more to the original. The extras’ wandering around the no man’s land and digressing from the main subject cost the movie. While the addition is not great, the adaptation is!

Did I overlook Gulzar + Vishal Bhardwaj’s combination? Indeed! Was I offended by DSP + Amitabh Bhattacharya’s effort? No. I did miss Dum Ghutta Hai’s ferocity, for sure. Unfortunately, Sahi Galat’s Bollywood debut was superior to King’s, but that’s what happens when the credits roll.

Final Word

All things considered, the final hour does manage to rekindle lost interest, but that’s the problem because the original film was more than just an incredible finale.
