Drishyam Review: Direction, Editing, Screenplay
The story of Drishyam is such that it keeps the audience guessing about what is going to happen next. As such the screenplay is very engaging and entertaining. This is a completely nail biting tale and has you hooked to it. The climax, which reveals the truth about the entire case, is shocking. The dialogues are natural. Overall, the writers (Jeetu Joseph) have done a commendable job.
Nishinaknt Kamat direction is exceptional. He makes the narrative engaging from the start to the end and extracts fine performances from his cast. He does total justice to the film’s exceptional script and his direction is spot on. However, his narrative style may only appeal more to the city-based class audience.
Editing is top notch. You will not lose interest even though the pace is a little slower. Vishal Bharadwaj music is very good. The background score lifts many scenes in the movie. The cinematography is simple yet so effective.
Drishyam Review: Star Performances
⇒ Ajay Devgan, it would seem, was born to play this role. He is absolutely extraordinary as Vijay and breathes fire in the scenes of confrontation with IG Meera (Tabu). He is suitably mellow in the romantic scenes. This is one of the best ever performances of Ajay Devgan in his entire career and he would be a strong contender this year for the best actor award for this film.
⇒ Tabu plays the role of Meera (a police officer) with flair and gets a haunting quality to her silence. Her beauty is such in the film that it reflects her state of mind. Her happiness, anger and pain speaks through her eyes.
⇒ Shriya Saran as Nandhani in the film, is great. Beautiful, innocent and smooth, she is better than most of her ungrateful roles.
♦ Deadly combo of Ajay-Tabu
♦ Flawless Direction
♦ Gripping Story
♦ Unexpected Climax
♦ Slow First Half
♦ Limited Appeal
Drihsyam Review: Last Word
On the whole, Drishyam is a powerful action-emotional thriller which boasts of equally powerful dialogues and absolutely power-packed performances. The climax will leave you in shock and disbelief. Don’t miss this edge to seat thriller.
