— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) November 19, 2022 It’s just that 2022 has been very skewed toward low numbers, so when numbers as good as these come along that are on par with pre-pandemic levels, there’s good reason to celebrate.
‘Drishyam 2’ has been directed by Abhishek Pathak and is the remake of the 2021 Malayalam film of the same name besides also being a sequel to the crime thriller ‘Drishyam’ which was released in 2015.
With Ajay Devgn and Tabu, this suspense film has all the makings of a blockbuster. According to ABPLive review of the movie, “Drishyam 2 offers a good closure to both the Salgaonkar and Deshmukh family with a reiteration of what Vijay Salgaonkar had said in the first part about his family. ‘Drishyam 2’ does not follow its characters around but achieves even greater effect by connecting plot points and not reiterating the film (directly or indirectly) in a scene.”
