This is the third time this concept is being remade. First made in Malayalam in 2013 (starring Mohanlal) under the same name, Drishyam turned out to be a slick crime drama which was appreciated by the audience and the critics alike. It has been remade in Telugu and Tamil (starring Kamal Hassan) as well.
The Hindi film, directed by Nishikant Kamat, stars Ajay Devgn as a common film-loving cable-operator and Shriya Saran as his wife. The family’s residing in Goa when they’re exposed to an unfortunate incident, and it’s Ajay’s responsibility now to keep his family out of any trouble. Apart from Ajay and Shriya, the film even stars Tabu and Rajat Kapoor in important roles. The music for Drishyam has been scored by Vishal Bharadwaj.
The film is slated to release on July 31st. Watch the trailer and let us know your thoughts in comments below.
