Drishyam 2 contiinues from 2015’s Drishyam. The Salgaonkars are still living in Goa and Vijay is still the same cinema-crazy guy. Time has moved and the changes in time and growth have been clearly shown in the film. But the past has not been forgotten. The best part of the story writing was that it showed how time has moved on, but the past continues to linger. The remains and memories of the past are still bedeviling. The site of a police officer still makes Anju, the elder daughter, suffer from seizures whereas, Nandini continues to feel suffocated thinking of the fateful night.

Directed by Abhishek Pathak, who is known for crime thrillers such as Section 375, Khuda Hafiz, created an impactful film. While sticking to the template of the prequel, the film takes the first half an hour to introduce various characters and to establish itself.

It begins at a slow pace, in the first half but soon catches up in the second half as various mysteries unfold. The second half of the film is deeply engaging.

Drishyam 2 boasts the excellent performances of its cast. Ajay Devgn lived the role of Vijay. He was one with the character, his acting was sharp, lucid, and smooth. Akshaye Khanna’s delivery of a sense of desperation and authority in one frame is splendid. Shriya Saran continued her part as the docile housewife, but her acting was slightly off.

The film shines as an excellent and praise-worthy sequel, making it a must-watch.

At the 53rd edition of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), Drishyam 2 will have a special screening. It will be on November 21.
