Edge-of-the-seat thriller with surprising twists and turns
Background Score 4/5
Wow, finally a good thriller movie after a long time. Drishyam is a remake of the Malayalam movie by the same title. The movie is nestled in a Goan village, the kind where everyone knows one- another. The protagonist is a middle-class Goan Vijay Salgaonkar( Ajay Devgn) for whom his family's well being is paramount.
Ajay plays the role of a 5th class school-dropout who runs a local cable-service provider shop. He is a big movie-buff and spends most of his time at work looking at the motion pictures.
Vijay has a cozy life with his wife Nandini(Shriya Saran) , elder daughter( Ishita Dutta, 'Poonam from Ek Ghar Banaunga' & Tanushree Dutta's sister) and younger daughter(Mrinal Jadhav). The coziness of his family is shattered one night following an offhand chain of events.
Vijay's character development is myriad throughout the film and it compels you to think away from the extreme principles of black vs white, right vs wrong, yin vs yang. His strong will and steadfastness to protect his family at all costs forms the backbone of the story.
The unfateful night's chain of events leads to a massive police search headed by the stern and steely IPS Meera Deshmukh (Tabu).
Tabu's acting is top-notch in multiple interrogation scenes throughout the movie with a distinct no-nonsense persona on display at all times.
Ishita Dutta is remarkable in her Bollywood debut with a wide palette of emotions. Mrinal Jadhav plays the role of the innocent and adorable younger daughter splendidly, generating a few interspersed audience laughs.
Rajat Kapoor has a knack for playing the upper-class, businessmen roles and is casted perfectly as Tabu's husband. However his character is a bit monochromatic, probably due to the script.
The movie has multiple twists arousing the curiosity of the audience culminating into a superb climax.
Even though the film is 2 hours and 43 minutes long, it binds the audience to their seats till the very last scene.
I strongly recommend this film, especially to the thriller genre lovers.
P.S. The film also teaches you why watching movies can impart you with paramount life-skills. So, definitely a connect with the movie buffs :)
