Here is the first talk of Venkatesh and Meena starrer Drushyam, which is the Telugu remake of Malayalam film of the same name. Given that the original film was a huge hit and grossed over Rs 50 Crore in Malayalam, the movie garnered much hype and buzz in Telugu as well. While Venkatesh steps into the shoes of Mohanlal, Meena, who was part of original, plays the same role in this film as well.
Drushyam begins with Rambabu (Venkatesh) waiting in a police station. As he recollects the series of past events in his mind, the movie is narrated. Simply, put Drushyam is a crime mystery laced with family drama. Nadhiya, who played Pawan Kalyan’s Atta in Attarintiki Daaredi, is surprise package in the film. She will be seen in a good role again. Director Sripriya didn’t strain her brain much as she strictly followed the original film. Story-screenplay by Jeethu Joseph deserves special mention.
Although the story is predictable, what engages you till the end is its narration. Save few laughs in the first half; credit: Sapthagiri, the movie has its own share of lag moments. As the movie progresses towards the end, it concludes with a nice twist. And that twist is worth waiting for over two hours.
