Drishyam 2 is a 2021 Indian Malayalam suspense thriller film about a murder investigation that focuses on a father and his family. Will Georgekutty be able to protect his family this time? Also known as Drishyam 2: The Resumption

The movie is a sequel to Drishyam (2013) which was a massive hit in India.

Written and directed by Jeethu Joseph, the movie stars Mohanlal, Meena, Ansiba and Esther Anil.



“While Jeethu Joseph’s writing and direction aren’t as assured as we had seen in Drishyam, they are still the main assets that make Drishyam 2 credible enough. The pulpy twists and turns are fun to watch, but they do risk tethering towards the point of disbelief, and occasionally crossing it. Jeethu, who like Georgekutty owned the foresight of seeing this criticism coming, tries to plug it with a very meta explanation…” Latestly

” …it’s Mohanlal’s aura, charisma and smarts that drives the movie forward. There are many characters and storylines added for the sole purpose of adding twists and turns to the story and there are a few loopholes. However, it’s still a good watch and, as said previously, a worthy addition to the instalment.” Leisure Byte


“It’s a slow-burning thriller that takes its time. Still, once it takes on pace, you will be delighted with the experience it gives. The film has all one can hope for: a captivating story and stellar acting of the cast. The film is a must-watch…” The Movie Buff

“A couple of court sequences appear to be a rushed job, wedges in unconvincingly into a film that is otherwise so well-penned. The narrative itself could have been tighter in parts, too, rendering a shorter runtime than 153 minutes. These, though are minor glitches. Drishyam 2 has enough to make you ignore its warts.” Social News XYZ


Drishyam 2 is streaming on Amazon Prime.
