After Marathi blockbuster “Lai Bhaari”, Nishikant Kamat is now directing upcoming investigative thriller “Drishyam”. Though it is an official Hindi remake of a Malayalam film of the same name, he says that it was mainly the script that he kept in mind while making the film and never tried to replicate the original.

“I looked at this film purely in terms of a script. I didn’t look at it as something which was made before and that I had to replicate,” said Kamat at a special media interaction for the film.

“There’s a director’s perspective on how you make the film, how you edit it and how you present it and I did it my way. I had only seen the film (the original) once and strictly avoided seeing it again so that I don’t lose perspective. I followed the script and treated it as our own version,” he added.

Kamat said: “We changed the milieu, the backdrop and made it a more pan-India film. We began the changes by first naming the protagonist as Vijay Salgaonkar, and then we placed it in rural Goa. We designed the plot according to this plan and chose to have a certain scale for the film by trying to scale up the film.”

Other than the Malayalam original, the film has also been adapted into Kannada, Telugu and Tamil languages. And the Tamil version of the film titled “Papanasam” and starring Kamal Haasan was released on July 3.
