Mohanlal`s much awaited Christmas release, Drishyam, has commenced its shooting at Thodupuzha early this month. Mohanlal plays the role of Georgekutty, a cable channel operator with 4th Standard education. Meena will be playing the role of his wife, Rani, who happens to be 10th standard failed. The film, written & directed by Jeethu Joseph,conveys the slight ego clashes between the husband & wife in a hilarious manner. Kalabhavan Shajon, Siddhique, Asha Sharath et comprises the rest of the cast. Sujith Vasudev is the cinematographer while Vinu Thomas & anil Johnson handles the music department. The film is produced by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner Aashirvad Cinemas and will be released through Max Lab release on December 2013.
- It's not the most sophisticated story, but it's script is
perfect for a family - thriller, and to some extent, realistic too. I absolutely
love Drishyan because it doesn't treat the viewers like a bunch of idiots. The
director had taken enough cinematic freedom, ofcourse it is not a film aimed
at film festivals, but that freedom never crosses the line for the sake of giving
a suspense thriller.
Mohanlal's character was beautifully developed, something similar to 'Hitchcock' style, 'placing an ordinary person in an extraordinary situation', and as the story opens up, we subconsciously place ourselves in his (GeorgeKutti) situation and think, what we ourselves would do in such a situation.
Elder daughter 'appa, I am scared to go to jail.'
We feel something inside us when a sweet family with a beautiful life gets into a situation where they don't have choice but only...
I emotionally enjoyed the movie mainly because of 'The family' more than the suspense. Few scenes really touches the heart emotionally. The family in the movie gives so much respect and love to each other, that we ourselves feel some kind of electric vibration inside us about our family. There are atleast two scenes where I personally felt tears, in a good way.
The long shot (3.30 mins), now in Malayalam industry we have to call it Jeethu Joseph's trade mark shot, was a great way to start the movie.
Jeethu Joseph is a good story teller. The way a small thread is developed to a thrilling family drama is something which we can't stop praising.
