Drishyam 2, written and directed by Jeetu Joseph, is set about six years after the events of the first film in which Georgekutty (Mohanlal) and his family had avoided getting caught for being the pervert Son of the Inspector General of Police Now, the danger threatens the secret to get out, and the story revolves around whether Georgekutty will manage to lead his family through re-investigating this terrible incident It technically follows the narrative structure of the first film in terms of setting up many elements in the first hour, but then it begins to re-contextualize everything with its twists and turns and finally comes to a conclusion that will shake everyone up
Life is about choosing between two evils Yes, you can say that things on the ground are a bit black and white For example, there is the Godi media, which spreads misinformation, and the independent media, which is journalism But as you get further off the ground and get into politics, police, justice and so on, things keep getting grayer until you can’t even tell what shade of gray it is (No, there isn’t a 50 Shades of Gray joke inside) The first Drishyam dealt with that thought and I hope none of you got out of this movie with the idea that Georgekutty is a noble person because if you go through Drishyam 2 you will become Georgekutty’s moral compass and very seriously question the definition of “nobility”
Drishyam 2 is written and directed by Jeethu Joseph. The music is by Anil Johnson, the camera by Satheesh Kurup together with the cameraman assistants Mahesh Mohan and Jithesh Managalapilly, editing by V.S. Vinayak, art direction by Rajeev Kovilakom, costume design by Linta Jeethu and Murali TV, Make-up by Jithesh Poyya and Liju Pamamcode, hair by Sanu Kurumassery and Bijeesh Balakrishnan, VFX by Magmyth, VFX directed by Tony Tom and sound design by Sinoy Joseph and Boney M Joy It includes Mohanlal, Meena, Ansiba, Esther Anil, Siddique, Asha Sharath, Saikumar, Murali Gopi, Ganesh Kumar, Antonius Perumbavoor, Anjali Nair, Sumesh Chandran, Dinesh Prabhakar, Ajith Koothattukulam, Krishna Prabha and more The story revolves around Georgekutty (Mohanlal) and his family, who are about to face the consequences of the murder of the perverted son of the police inspector general at the time, as IG Thomas (Murali Gopi) is investigating again
Don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything just because I talk about twists and turns I want you to experience them firsthand I actually want to praise Jeethu Joseph’s use of the concept of twists See, the thing is, twists and turns are used most of the time To Shock the Audience Nine times out of ten, they don’t improve the plot and actually ruin it by creating plot holes where there weren’t any. However, in Drishyam 2, the two main twists of the plot wonderfully recontextualize everything you did before that point and convinced you to watch the entire movie again That spins should do! They should enrich the narrative, get you to re-watch a movie with the new found context, and ask you to question any assumptions you’ve made about the characters, and boy, boy, are you going to doubt anything what did you know about Georgekutty?
In my opinion, Drishyam has fantastically convinced us that Georgekutty is the ultimate family man, and his efforts to save his family are a symbolic representation of the struggle between the common man and the system that continues throughout Drishyam 2 too But if you can’t get out of this movie and think the man is an absolute psychopath, reflecting how deeply the power of the system can affect someone, I don’t think you are human, to be honest, was I absolutely shocked when the credits rolled in. As far as I can tell, it’s airtight storytelling with so much attention to detail, the only problem I’ve had so far is the long subplot about the killer who discovered Georgekutty aside I really don’t have any problems. By the way, let me know if any major subplot on a book has any reference to the rech contains
everyday questions regarding Drishyam’s story
One of the biggest problems I had with Drishyam was the pace, especially with re-watching when the movie shows us everything the protagonist has done and then spends the next few minutes repeating everything he has done it feels repetitive in 2013 my sensitivity may not have been very refined and i passed it but when i looked at it in preparation for drishyam 2 i noticed omitting the funeral made sense but showing it all off and to show again didn’t do it in the second act, I was afraid that Joseph would do it again, but I think even he was aware of Drishyams as he had no better word, flaws and worked tremendously on it with the help of editor V. Vinayak That’s why it feels constantly engaged despite its running time of 2 hours and 33 minutes and manages to find many of its arbitrary moments necessary in retrospect
Like Drishyam, Jeethu Joseph wants to show that the events in Georgekutty’s life in Drishyam 2 do not take place in a vacuum, at the same time he makes it clear that he is aware that this is not a superheroic story, he keeps things on the ground and leaves only focus on the slow-motion stare when it is of the utmost importance.Otherwise, large chunks of the film are dedicated to conversations between secondary and tertiary characters. They act later in the film, but yeah, they also give off the feeling that the city is lives, and thus reinforce the fear in Georgekutty and the hearts of his family.The cinematography, score and processing are mostly functional during the comparatively group-related and outdoors scenes.In the moments of isolation, shit becomes moody, the atmosphere becomes denser and you can feel how the guilt rests on it as if it were undermining Georgekutty and his family There is e A montage with Rani and that hits hard!
Mohanlal, Meena, Ansiba and Esther’s appearances cause so much pain. I mean that as positively as possible. Your ability to subtly and sometimes not so subtly show how hurt you are is at the heart of the film Can You Even Understand What someone like Georgekutty and Rani is going through? These are ordinary, middle-class people who wanted to live peacefully. Every step of the way they are reminded of what they did, even though it was six years ago.Can you imagine looking at your daughters and being literally and metaphorically reminded of things that you buried? Yeah, that’s the kind of nuance Mohanlal and Meena bring to the table that way they can’t look directly at each other or show that their characters are questioning anything that makes even the most distant moments seem terribly realistic Mohanlal is the star here, but Meena is also a highlight
Ansiba has some work to do here I can’t go into many details, but anyone who poses the kind of mental or other issues their character is facing runs the risk of making fun of them a few decades ago it might get a passport But now it won’t So you have to make sure it’s sensitive and Ansiba does it in such a way that you really empathize with them I can’t say more, I’m sorry! Esther was the emotional core of the first film Here she’s some kind of comic relief Not in a rib-tickling way, but in a fun, pragmatic way Don’t worry, she initiates the waterworks when it is necessary to shed some light on the alienation, which takes place due to the actions of Georgekutty and Rani.Murali Gopi is like an attacking cop here and is aptly flanked by Nair and Chandran.They are brilliant Every supporting actor is too, that’s all I can say without spoiling the plot
Drishyam 2 embodies the concept of a plot change It turns upside down and so does its predecessor. And Jeethu Joseph does so with the help of expert writing, directing, editing, cinematography, score and acting I know many who will see this , will conclude that a few plot changes are the key to a good thriller.But they’ll be so wrong.That’s why I want to reiterate that your cinematic language needs to be as robust as Joseph’s in order for you to make informed decisions about it what to show and what to hold back so that the viewing experience becomes more educational than one way I highly recommend seeing this and while it will be quite a task I urge you to watch Drishyam and Drishyam 2 in a row to fully enjoy Georgekutty’s saga
