Drishyam 2 movie review: Mohanlal, Jeethu Joseph combo!

The film begins with Jose, a convict, on the run from the police. In an attempt to hide, he takes refuge behind an under-construction police station, from where he witnesses Georgekutty emerging from. He is then caught by the police and apprehended.


Jeethu Joseph and Mohanlal were filming for Ram prior to the Covid-19 lockdown in India, however the shooting of the film was stalled as some sequences they want to film in foreign locations, such as London and Cairo. As the crew realised that the filming would take time to continue, Jeethu decided to start the works for Drishyam 2, a sequel to their 2013 film Drishyam 2 which he had plans for some time. As the shooting of the film would only take place in Kerala, Jeethu realised it was most appropriate film to shoot after the lockdown ends. The film was officially announced by Mohanlal on his 60th birthday on 21 May 2020.


Principal photography began on 21 September 2020 in Kochi. It was conducted adhering to the safety precautions set for preventing COVID-19 spread. Indoor scenes were shot there. Filming was held at Kakkanad, Kochi. It was shifted to Thodupuzha after two weeks. The same house at Vazhithala featured as Georegekutty and family's residence in Drishyam was used as the location for Drishyam 2, reportedly, an 18-day shoot was charted at the house. The house was renovated to reflect Georgekutty's present-day prosperity. Filming was also held at some other houses in Thodupuzha, and was also shot at nearby areas such as Kanjar and Arakkulam.

We don't want to give any spoiler so please tune in to Amazon Prime and watch Drishyam 2. But make sure you watch Drishyam 1 fisrt. Otherwise you won't get the main flavor of this film. The main cast was same as earlier with some more additional casting. In most of the cases we anticipate that sequel will not be as good as the first movie. But Drishyam 2 has proven that wrong. This is more intense and more thrilling.

Is the sequel of Drishyam 2 coming?

After the release of Drishyam 2, producer Antony Perumbavoor commented that it is possible for a third sequel for the film series, although Jeethu had neither confirmed nor denied it.
