Drishyam Review

Watching the movie again after the release of the original dvd, 150 days after its theater release, I am forced by some force inside me to write about Drishyam. Jeethu Joseph, the director of the movie, registered his presence with his previous movie, Memories, itself but Drishyam takes him to a completely new level. He is now a maker who will be watched by all film goers down south. Thanks to Drishyam and Memories, and Malayalam industry should be thankful to Jeethu Joseph and team for creating a new big market for Malayalam movies. Malayalam industry, though with lot of classics to its name, was lagging too behind in attracting other language viewers and this is where Drishyam makes a mark. The success of this movie attracted people from everywhere. When was such a widely accepted movie released in Malayalam? Around 20 years back, - Manichitrathazhu. Ofcourse Manichitrathazhu will remain as the best starter but it's a past, social network nor Internet market was there to help it's market. There are few movies which did well outside Kerala like Yodha, Oru CBI Dairy Kurippu, Rajamanikkam etc but no other movie was as successful as Drishyam. This is not the best of Malayalam cinema and it is nowhere near to the classics like Piravi, Swayamvaram, Kodiyettam etc... but like Titanic or Avatar for Hollywood, it is a good cinematic experience from Malayalam, a must watch and the best choice for a non Malayali to start watching Malayalam movies. I recommend this work of dramatic excitement highly. The movie's dream run outside Kerala is really a positive signal for all upcoming movies and I hope it will be utilized well.

- 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.
