Bollywood isn’t really known for pulling off suspenseful thrillers, certainly not for keeping up the steam in a sequel. But, like Drishyam in 2015, Drishyam 2 lulls you to sleep with its modest settings, simple characters, human cops, and a family caught up in events beyond their control, until it comes home to its lesson for the second time: It doesn’t matter what is in front of you; the important thing is what you are seeing.

And what does the world see when it looks Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay Devgn)? A family man and father of two, who runs a local cable service and has an obsessive love of movies, or just a “failed chauthi (class 4)”, an illiterate man who doesn’t care. It is undoubtedly the latter that clouded the vision of Meera Deshmukh (Tabu), the PGI of Angerlast time, causing her to lose the battle of wits with Salgaonkar.

Drishyam 2 it very cleverly picks up from where these two main leads, both fierce fathers, left off in Drishyam. The story is again by Jeethu Joseph who also directed the two Malayalam versions. With the death of Nishikant Kamat, who directed the Bollywood remake of Drishyam, the reins of Drishyam 2 have passed to Abhishek Pathak.

Almost all the characters from the first film reappear, and the sequel is enriched by it. They largely show the effects of the past seven years: the Salgaonkars of keeping the terrible secret of a murder; and the Deshmukhs to live with the knowledge that the former got away with killing his only son, a wayward Sam. The only one that stands out is Shriya. Saranplaying Vijay’s wife with the same perfect hair and trimmed sarees, with eyes shadowless except for kajal, despite sleepless nights haunted by the murder she speaks of.

Words that are spilled here and there, nervousness that cannot be contained, gossip in the town that is not silenced, doubts that follow the Salgaonkars, witnesses that add up to two and two of that fateful night, every inch by inch. until Sam’s body, which was not found last time.

So, with clues pointing irrevocably towards his family, what will Vijay, who repeats that he can do anything and everything for them, do now?

The plan turns out to be elaborate and unexpected as it was in Drishyam. However, in its execution, it is not that easy, requiring a disbelieving violation of basic protocols by the police, which would lead any competent judge to dismiss the case, as well as a number of overly gullible people around. from Vijay. The remarkable change in his fortune adds to the whiff of notoriety that surrounds him now.

The weakest link is perhaps Akshaye Khanna, as the new IG, Tarun. While Tabu brought moral authority, steely strength, and growing helplessness to her role in Drishyam, as a stern police chief who’s also a desperate mother, Khanna is all sarcastic lines, glowering eyes, and exaggerated mannerisms, with little at stake. . Tarun is built like this genius cop who meditates a lot on chessboards for companionship, but only really comes close to solving the case due to an unexpected stroke of luck.

Tabu and Kapoor, like her businessman husband Mahesh Deshmukh, return as the grieving parents. Her roles are limited, but every time she’s there, watching, waiting, wincing, the pain in the lines of her weary face, Tabu owns this movie again.

Meera, the police, did not see what was in front of her. But as even Vijay admits, when it comes to Meera, her mother, it’s hard to look her in the eye.
