The film’s run time is approximately one hour and twenty minutes.
The story of Drishyam 2 is not exactly a conventional thriller, and its length and script are indicative of this. While the film starts off as a family drama, it gains a pulse as the investigation unfolds. Jeethu’s script is tight and tightly woven, resulting in a stellar climax. The script also boasts several fine details. Although the film is not racy or ostentatious, it is nevertheless a worthwhile watch.
Drishyam 2 Movie Plot
Georgekutty, Rani, Anju, and Anu are currently living happier lives. Despite Rani’s concerns, Georgekutty, the proprietor of a prosperous movie theater, longs to make his own movie. He frequently communicates with renowned screenwriter Vinayachandran to develop the script for his movie. Anju, on the other hand, is afflicted with PTSD and epilepsy as a result of her anxiety over being detained for her involvement in Varun’s murder. Many residents have resorted to spreading allegations about Anju having “venereal links” with Varun, much to Rani’s dismay. Saritha, a nice neighbor and government clerk who endures regular abuse from her alcoholic husband, Sabu, a real estate broker, is Rani’s lone source of comfort.
Because they were unable to determine the real cause of Varun’s case, the Kerala Police were embarrassed. Varun’s father, Mr. Prabhakar, runs into Georgekutty and cries out to him in vain to tell him where his son’s remains are. Rani objects when Anu asks her friends to visit while she is home for spring vacation. Rani spends more time with Saritha as Georgekutty ignores her worries and, on one occasion, unintentionally spills the beans about her family’s involvement in Varun’s killing. Unbeknownst to her, Geetha’s close friend and coworker IGP Thomas Bastin appointed Saritha and Sabu as married undercover police. “Sadak 2 Move Review”
Jose is released from jail in the meanwhile. He struggles to heal fences with his now-separated family and looks for work. He remembers Georgekutty’s presence at the police station that was still being built as he learns that Georgekutty’s case is still pending. Knowing that Georgekutty had participated in the murder, he informs Bastin, who then calls Geetha and Prabhakar from the United States. On the evening of August 3, Jose divulges Georgekutty’s presence at the then-unfinished police station after the group bribes him with Rs. 500,000. Jose’s allegations enable the authorities to conduct a raid on the police station, during which a human skeleton is eventually found. At the same time, Georgekutty seemed to give up after observing the events on his CCTV cameras that he had installed all around the police station. Bastin, Geetha, and Prabhakar call Georgekutty’s family for a casual interview after discovering the human remains. Rani, Anu, Anju, and Georgekutty are able to keep their cover. A voice recording of Rani’s earlier confession to Saritha, however, is made public by Geetha; the police had already bugged the family home. Geetha questions Anju after revealing the family, which causes the latter to experience another seizure. Georgekutty, who is distraught, makes a bogus confession that he killed Varun. The family is released after the police are pleased, and Georgekutty is detained. However, Geetha isn’t satisfied and insists that Georgekutty’s family be punished as well.

Georgekutty is later put on trial for killing Varun. Meanwhile, Vinayachandaran visits Bastin, Geetha, and Prabhakar after learning about Georgekutty’s detention. He explains that Georgekutty had created a storyline for a future crime thriller that was partially based on Varun’s murder during their business collusions. In addition, he adds that Georgekutty had written a novel based on the screenplay for the movie called Drishyam; however, for copyright reasons, it was published under Vinayachandran’s name. The group is then informed that Georgekutty has formally entered a plea of not guilty. His defense team claimed that the government had set him up and “misused” Drishyam’s plot to bring him to justice. Bastin concludes that Georgekutty wrote the novel and the confession as part of a strategy to avoid facing justice after realizing that Georgekutty’s earlier confession lines up with Drishyam’s plot. What’s more shocking is that Varun’s DNA doesn’t match the skeleton, according to DNA testing. According to Vinayachandran, Georgekutty created an alternative ending for his movie, in which the hero (Georgekutty), in an effort to avoid legal repercussions, would obtain the remains of another person of the same age and sex who had passed away from injuries similar to those suffered by the villain by making friends with the gravedigger of the cemetery where that body had been interred. In addition to befriending a security guard at the district medical college morgue under the guise of providing him a chance in the film industry, the hero would carry the skeletal bones that he had obtained from the cemetery around with him for over three years. The hero would switch the body at the morgue the evening the remains removed from the police station arrive, just before the day the DNA analysis is to be conducted, after bribing the security officer with alcohol.
Jeethu Joseph makes it a point to show Georgekutty’s life in context. His film remains grounded by avoiding slow motion and slow camerawork, and focusing most of its time on the secondary and tertiary characters. While it is a dramedy, the film is most effective when it is filmed outdoors. If you haven’t seen the original film, you will be pleasantly surprised. The actors and crew are all excellent.
Despite the long duration, Drishyam 2 is an entertaining, action-packed sequel to the popular 2013 film. It has a star-studded cast that includes Mohanlal, Asha Sarath, Siddique, and Murali Gopy. Jeetu Joseph, the director of Drishyam 2, is bringing his signature style to a new screenplay. This time around, the focus will be on the role of Georgekutty, the father of the protagonist.
The film picks up where the original movie left off. Once again, Mohanlal and Prabhakar return to their respective roles in the movie. The film continues the investigation of the missing Varun Prabhakar case, and its themes are as diverse as the original. If you are looking for a movie with more heart and emotion than just action, the Drishyam 2 is the movie for you.
While Drishyam is one of the biggest movies of the last decade, it also received a forceful digital release, which has been criticized by theatre owners and distributors. While the film is well-received by critics and audiences alike, its long run time may not be enough to draw a large audience to the theaters. But it should be noted that the movie is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Drishyam 2 is a sequel to the hit thriller. The film is a retelling of the events of the original, six years after the movie’s events.
