I strongly recommend this film, especially to the thriller genre lovers. The Hindi remake, directed by Nishikant Kamat and starring Ajay Devgn, will be released on July 31. Like most great movies it takes its own sweet time to set the context and background. The house underwent minor changes to look like a Tamil household. Child actors and , along with , , and Koottickal Jayachandran were also cast to play major supporting roles.
The director, in an interview with , stated that he wrote the screenplay with Mohanlal in mind and that the character was tailor-made for Mohanlal. It features , and in the lead roles, and produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak, Ajit Andhare and Abhishek Pathak. Jeetu Joseph made a smart move and tweaked the story a bit and claimed that it was his own story. The film was selected to be screened in the Indian Panorama at the. No, this is not a slasher type or a haunted horror movie, but definitely will thrill out to the spine.
Rani tells Georgekutty about the incident and he devises a way to save his family from the law. So that was quite smart. . All in all the story and the concept of this script will catch the attention of the audience and make them spellbound. However, Drishyam often seems like a radio play, long dialogues mar its cinematic qualities, and like many other helmers, Joseph too does not know where to end his film. Talking about the stars:- Ajay is fabulous in the role n I'm happy to see him doing such movies as i was very much disappointed by Action Jackson It was one of his worst movie after Himmatwala , Tabbu n Shreya has done their part well n in fact everyone in the movie acted so well including the little girl that u will feel that everything is happening in real.
The film made with a mature approach. It still is the best of the lot. I didn't even realize it. The audience gets completely absorbed in the twist of events that begin to unfold from the end of the first half. But at the same time, it doesn't make any change in its slow first half, following the fixed format that was also pointed out as the weaker portions of the original by few critics.
To conclude, Drishyam is not as perfect as its inspirations, but nevertheless it is still a classic. Meanwhile, Meera finds out about Sam and his video of Anju from Sam's friend, Alex. See Badri this is what I was talking about. Heard a remake of national award Malayalam movie is coming in bollywood and i was just waiting like anything for this movie. Rajat Kapoor is at his fluent best as he usually is.
Drishyam could have been a classic but several creative choices baffled me. However it's the missing emotions, lack of energy or fire, average performances, a loud-inconsistent background score, avoidable spoon- feeding and few unnecessary ridiculous commercial insertions that don't let you rate the film more than anything above average or decent. Archived from on 26 February 2014. The Sub-inspector is suspended, Meera resigns from her post, and the entire investigating team of the Police Station is transferred out, with the case now requiring authorization from the court. This could be India's answer to 'Gone Girl' 2014 , or even better I would say. People who enjoy thrillers should check out the treatment, confessions of a murder, bereavement and malevolence, marshland, poker night, 13 sins, the secret in their eyes, the shrine, freeway killer, ittefaq borrowed from signposts to murder , adam green's spiral and frozen, the keeper of lost causes, cell 211.
I guess strong acting, realistic judgments made by characters, complementary music and tight pacing are essential elements in achieving this. I would request you all to please go the movie theatre and watch the movie. The younger daughter also does a decent job. Mohanlal is at his very best when he gets a relatable character, quickly jumps into the skin of the same, takes us along and then shows sheer class in the minutest of ways he reacts as the character and almost single handedly transports you right into the middle of the situation. But if there is a single aspect which triumphs all the way in the movie it is detailing and detailing in anything and everything.
I walk a tight rope here as I am torn between explaining the best of what I saw and my sense of responsibility to not spoil your fun. Papanasam, on the other hand, tries to bristle a bit more with its humor. Anu reports to the media and complains against Sahadevan. If you want to see a more natural performance go for Malayalam Lal or an emotional master class kamal. Shriya does justification to her role as a mother and a wife of Ajay Devgan.
But after going through the trailer of Hindi film, the original Japanese novel and the Malayalam version, we indeed find some points which indicates there are similarities in these two which are incorporated very wisely. Before the Hindi version, the Tamil adaptation Papanasam, featuring Kamal Haasan in the lead role and also directed by Jeethu Joseph, will be out on July 3. They will take whatever they are spoon fed. Or will Meera find out the truth? So, definitely a connect with the movie buffs : As everyone is aware it is a remake and the movies made before are exceptional. Another subtle difference in Papanasanam compared to the other three is the change in the murder scene where it is shown that the murder happened inadvertently. When Nandini asks Vijay about what he did to the body, he refuses to tell her, saying that the information is safe with him.
