Storyline

Georgekutty (Mohanlal) is a cable TV network owner in a remote and hilly village in Kerala. He lives a happy life with his wife and 2 girls. The first half revolves around the depiction of their happy family. Anju (Ansiba), Georgekutty's daughter goes to a school trip in between the proceedings. After a few days a guy who had been at the school trip with her meets Anju. He blackmails her with a video of her that he had captured during the school trip. In the course of events he is accidentally killed by Rani (Meena) and Anju. Georgekutty on returning home is appraised of the events and thus begins a cat and mouse game as the murdered person is the son of IG Geeta Prabhakar (Asha Sharath) and Prabhakar (Siddique). How the family weathers the storm that ensues during the murder investigation forms the rest of the story leading to a deeply satisfying and unexpected climax. Written by Athul

Drishyam is cracker of a thriller movie. Excellent !!!
30 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Watched Mohanlal starer Drishyam directed by Jeethu Joseph.

When was the last time you come out of the theater saying 'Wow, Excellent.. What a Movie' ?? Yes.. Time has come. Drishyam is cracker of a thriller movie.

Mohanlal is so elegant and wonderful as George Kutty. Jeethu Joseph Oh man.. Please add my name in your fan's list. U are awesome.. Great going Jeethu.. Nice Camera and BG score make this movie memorable one..

Not going to story part. Better(Must) watch in theaters. Brilliant Screenplay and Cleverly directed movie. Brought Goosebumps at climax scene. Well supported by Meena, Siddique, Asha Sharath etc.. Kalabhavan Shajon is awesome in his negative role.
