The much-awaited teaser of Mohanlal starrer Drishyam 2 is out. The sequel of the hit 2013 thriller Drishyam also brings back Meena, Ansiba Hassan and Esther Anil. What’s more, the movie will skip the theatrical route and release directly on Amazon Prime Video.
The teaser begins with the climax scene from Drishyam, where Mohanal’s Georgekutty tells a cop that he believes the new police station will protect his family. What he actually means is his secret will remain buried under the floors of the police station forever. Well, it seems like he was wrong.
The ghost from the past will seemingly rise from its grave to haunt Georgekutty and his family in the sequel. However, Georgekutty appears more confident in covering his tracks. The last shot in the teaser shows no guilt on his face. Only a calm determination to get rid of the secret once and for all so that it won’t come back to threaten the peaceful existence of his family.
Jeetu Joseph, who wrote and directed Drishyam, has helmed Drishyam 2.
Talking about Drishyam 2, Mohanlal said, “Drishyam was one-of-a-kind thriller, way ahead of its time, that was loved by all. With Drishyam 2, we are taking the story of Georgekutty and his family ahead from where we left it off. I am delighted to associate with Amazon Prime Video to release one of the most-awaited movies of the year. Prime Video has helped take some of the best stories of South Indian cinema to avid cinephiles not just in India, but across the world. We know viewers have waited patiently for the sequel. Drishyam is a labour of love. We hope to rise to the expectations of our die-hard fans. So sit back and enjoy from the safety of your homes with your family and loved ones.”
Drishyam emerged as the highest-grossing Malayalam cinema of 2013 with more than Rs 50 crore box office collection worldwide. It even inspired remakes in other languages, including Chinese (Sheep Without a Shepherd). The film revolved around the efforts of a father, who tries to cover-up the murder committed by his family by spinning a web of convoluted lies.
