Drishyam (Hindi) - Movie Review
by Padmaja Iyengar - Paddy
Bookmark and Share
 

Drishyam, a grippingly well told, fantastic tale of visual memory,
Is a remake of the Malayalam hit with the same name and story,
Which is simple yet quite intricate with a screenplay that’s taut,
And creates a unique drama thanks to its unusually riveting plot.
 
The story of two sets of parents with divergent perspectives,
On the face of it, an unequal battle of baffling wit and nerves.
A fourth-fail father pitted against a top police official mother,
With rare ingenuity and daring, each trying to outdo the other.
 
Tabu as the vengeful, angry and aggrieved police officer mother,
Ajay Devgan as the loving and committed cable operator father,
And Kamlesh Sawant as the brutal, corrupt and unscrupulous cop,
Have all come up with supreme performances pulling out all stops.
 
Drishyam gives a go-by to the usual trappings of a thriller,
Yet gives one the feeling of being hauled through a chiller.
An intelligent and taut script that puts all cards on the table,
But saves one till the end, to reveal the director’s touch able.
 
I am not going to reveal Drishyam’s story even one little bit
But can guarantee that this amazing film is no doubt a hit.
