So, this week's big release is Jeethu Joseph's hit Malayalam film remake starring the Vijaypath actors. And we bring to you our reviewer's first opinion about this film...
Ajay Devgn and Tabu starrer Drishyam will be out this Friday. While this movie has been made in five other languages inclusive of the Hindi version. The Tamil version, Papanasam featuring Kamal Haasan released just a few weeks ago and fared very well at the box office too. So, how does the Hindi film fare? BollywoodLife, editor Tushar Joshi is one of the few who is watching this film before the rest of us and here's what he has to say about Nishikant Kamat's newest outing...
"Drishyam is no ordinary thriller. It uses several elements of the genre (thriller) to create a well crafted riveting story. Ajay Devgn plays Vijay a cable operator who's a loving father to two daughters and a doting husband. Always on the righteous track he believes in supporting what is morally correct. Things take a turn for the worse when Vijay's daughter is caught in a MMS scandal. The young boy who tapes her is killed by Vijay's daughter in a freak mishap. The first half spends a lot of time building up the ambience and creating the bond between Vijay and his family.
The narrative is simple and there isn't much drama until we reach the middle half just before the interval. The best part of the first half comes pre interval with Tabu's (Meera Deshmukh) stellar entry as a coo covered in shades of grey. The second half is where the story will pick up and the jigsaw puzzle falls into place. Ajay's performance is nuanced with subtleties and the kids play their parts with utmost sincerity. Those who have seen the Malayalam version might know where the climax leads, but for me director Nishikant Kamat has me on the edge of my seat."
