Georgekutty (Mohanlal), an orphan by birth, is running a local cable network Rani Vision at Rajakkad, in Idukki district. He is happily living with his wife Rani (Meena) and their two children Anju and Anu. Georgekutty is an ardent movie enthusiast and with the help of movie situations, he tries to solve his problems in life. Everything goes fine in his life until a spoiled brat, Varun (Roshan) enters their life and spoils it completely. What follows is a thrilling, engaging and emotional screenplay.
Mohanlal as Georgekutty is too good in his character. Some expressions of this legend reminds us why he is still staying at the top of the Indian actor list. Meena as Rani makes a good comeback with her role. The child artists enacting the roles of Anju and Anu have done their roles exceptionally well.
Another notable performance is by Kalabhavan Shajon in the role of Sahadevan, a police constable. The negative character of Sahadevan is sure to gain Shajon a lot more opportunities in the coming years. Other characters including Siddique (Prabhakar), Asha Sarath (Geetha), Varun (Roshan) Irshad (police inspector), Kunjan (Madhavan) have done complete justice to their roles.
Cinematography by Sujith Vasudev has come out as a visual treat to the audience. Though not in plenty, he has captured the enchanting frames of the hilly district with sheer perfection.
Music by Vinu Thomas and Anil Johnson is good as both the songs in the movie have been perfectly placed and it blends with the mood of movie. Anil Johnson deserves a special mention for the wonderful BGM he has rendered.
The main attractions in the movie, are its gripping script and master craft direction by Jeethu Joseph. Putting aside some cliched family sequences in the first half, Jeethu deserves cent percent credit for his direction, and a wonderful and engaging script.
On the whole, Drishyam is a complete package. It thrills, its emotional, worth your money and time. Don't miss to watch this movie.
