Drishyam 2 Movie Review: Twists, Surprises Make It An Edge-Of-The-Seat Climax; Ajay Devgn And Akshaye Khanna Deliver A Winner!

Akshaye Khanna is a surprise package as the new IG.

Helmed by Abhishek Pathak and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak, Abhishek Pathak and Krishan Kumar, Drishyam 2 stars Ajay Devgn, Tabu, Ishita Dutta, Mrunal Jadhav and Rajat Kapoor. It is said to be a remake of the 2021 Malayalam film of the same name and sequel to Drishyam. The mystery film has been released today in cinemas across India.


Ajay plays Vijay Salgaonkar, Ishita as Anju Salgaonkar, Akshaye as Tarun Ahlawat, Mrunal as Anu Salgaonkar and Shriya as Nandini Salgaonkar. A father of two who is a family man has a local cable service with so much love for films, or just a “chauthi (Class 4) fail”, an illiterate man who doesn’t matter. It is certainly the latter that clouded the perspective of Tabu (Meera Deshmukh), the IGP of Goa, previously causing her to lose the game of wits with Salgaonkar. Family remains sad with the events of the police returning to their life.


Akshaye Khanna is a surprise package as the new IG. Tabu acts decently and Ajay is realistic with his performance like earlier. The slow-mo and close-up shots bring the tension within the scenes. The cinematography is fine as it doesn’t break the momentum too. The dialogues are well-written and one can whole-heartedly enjoy them. Since Ishita’s character had epilepsy because of the horrifying events, she delivers performance according to it only.


The 140-minute film comprises twists and surprises. It remains on track in each scene.  The first-half has gradual moving patches but post interval it picks up speed. It is set to open in double digits and saw a good amount of tickets sold in advance. It could emerge a great opener for Ajay in the recent times.
