Drishyam Malayalam Movie: A review

Note: This review is meant only for those who have watched the movie ( is not meant for those who are going to watch the movie after reading a review. )

The story revolves around a family, their relationships and an incident which changes their otherwise smooth life. The script writer does a wonderful job, as the script is getting as close to the life of a family, to the maximum a commercial film can, without boring the audience. The actors
Mohanlal as Georgekutty deserves such roles, as he is not utilized to his full potential these years may be due to his choice of roles as a protagonist.
    Meena as Rani
    Ansiba Hassan as Anju
    Esther as Anu
gave lifelike performances.
A middle class family with girl children can identify themselves with the characters and connect with them, and this is the major strength of the movie. The main plot resembles the story Devotion of Suspect X vaguely, but that resemblance is only in the crime committed in the story.
Kalabhavan Shajon as Sahadevan deserves special credit for choosing a very different kind of role as an antagonist and doing it very convincingly. (as the actor is famous as a comedian in various films)

    Siddique as Prabhakar
    Asha Sarath as IG Geetha Prabhakar
    Roshan Basheer as Varun
    Neeraj Madhav as Monichan
    Irshad as SI Suresh Babu
    Kunchan as Madhavan
    Kozhikode Narayanan Nair as Sulaimanikka
    Baiju V.K as Soman
    P. Sreekumar as Rani's Father
    Sobha Mohan as Rani's Mother
    Koottickal Jayachandran as Murali
    Kalabhavan Rahman as Bus Conductor
    Kalabhavan Haneef as Theatre Operator
    Antony Perumbavoor as Antony
    Pradeep Chandran

all did their roles well.
Cinematography is good . The film is a must watch.

A crime is committed, even if one escapes from the clutches of  law, conscience does a very big role in the  life of the persons involved. If the future of the family was discussed in that way, it would turn out to be an art film with limited audiences.  Director Jeethu Joseph is sensible in choosing an ending where the audience has no complaints.
