With the second film of the series, Drishyam 2, scheduled to be released on February 19, the Malayalam superstar will take the Drishyam franchise forward. In Bollywood, Drishyam was remade as a 2015 movie of the same name starring Ajay Devgn and Tabu. Recently, Mohanlal interacted with his fans by starting a ‘ask me something’ Twitter session ahead of the release.And Mohanlal, while doing so, left his fans wondering about his potential collaboration with Akshay Kumar and Priyadarshan, the director.
There is no doubt that the line between the South and the Hindi film industry started to fade after the huge success of the Baahubali franchise. Several pan-India ventures, headlined by southern superstars such as Prabhas, Vijay Deverakonda, Dulquer Salmaan and others, have been revealed. It was therefore very reasonable for a fan to express his desire to see Mohanlal make a film with Akshay Kumar,Which during the interactive session will be directed by Priyadarshan.
Mohanlal showed an interest in this unusual partnership, to everyone’s surprise. “Let it happen.”Let it happen. Although the 2013 release of the Malayalam thriller Drishyam was a superhit, all eyes are on Drishyam 2. Mohanlal, who also starred in the first film, says the second part was delayed because, with this Jeethu Joseph directorial, everyone in the team was ready to create something great.
The pressure to present the story and live up to the standards of the audience was certainly there, which is why the release of the sequel was delayed. You need a minimum of seven to eight years to put out a film with such characters, emotions and intellect. It always takes time for great things.Drishyam 1 was a family drama right up to the first half of the film if you watch carefully, because you are totally unaware of what is coming their way,’ he said.
“The film picks up the pace with the excitement and suspense going several notches higher in the second half going on to become a nail-biting thriller. Since one already knows the back story in Drishyam 2, the pressure comes in naturally as our story is in competition with itself. Having said that, I am confident that the audience will love the story and the movie.”In the second half, the film picks up the pace with the excitement and suspense going several notches higher to become a nail-biting thriller.
Because one already knows the back story in Drishyam 2, the pressure comes naturally as our story is in competition with itself.
