Of all the movies, we hardly expected to see a sequel to Drishyam. Didn’t George Kutty and his family not suffer enough already? We were content that the secret will remain buried forever, and the family would live in peace. But, it seems director Jeethu Joseph has decided to dig out the skeletons of the past that may come back to haunt the family of Georgekutty.
On his 60th birthday, Mohanlal announced Drishyam 2. He will be reprising his role as Georgekutty in the sequel, that will focus on the events that happen seven years after the high-profile case that shook a small Kerala town.
Drishyam 2 will retain the principle star cast from the first movie, and there will also be new characters. The movie will be produced by Antony Perumbavoor, who also produced Drishyam in 2013.
Drishyam emerged as the highest-grossing Malayalam cinema of that year with more than Rs 50 crore box office collection worldwide. It even inspired remakes in other languages, including Chinese (Sheep Without a Shepherd).
Drishyam follows the efforts of a father, who tries to cover-up the murder committed by his family by spinning a web of convoluted lies.
Jeethu Joseph and Mohanlal were shooting for another project titled Ram before the industry was shut down due to the outbreak of COVID.
