Ajay Devgn has given one of the best performances; it has been long since we have seen Ajay essay a different role like this which serves as breath of fresh air for the viewers. Tabu whose versatility has impressed us in all her movies grabs your attention in this movie as well with her tough cop act.

Nishikant Kamat who won accolades with his Marathi movie Lai Bhaari has done a fab job.

If you haven't watched Drishyam in any other language then book your tickets immediately and don't miss out watching this thrilling movie.

Writer Jitu Joseph needs to be applauded for having created such a flawless masterpiece that Bollywood, probably, has never witnessed before. his film scores heavily, because, while most of the whodunit thrillers are all about finding the culprit, this film is all about flawlessly concealing the crime.

On the whole, DRISHYAM is an absolute winner that keeps you hooked completely right till the end. It is definitely a must watch movie this weekend.

Who would think the Hindi remake of the repeatedly-told story would be capable of such a resounding impact? Nishikant Kamat’s Drishyam is an outright winner . It is not just a remarkably resonant remake but also a unique stand-alone experience.

Watch Drishyam closely. It may one day help you bail a dear one out of an unforeseen crisis. And to do that you don’t have to be a ‘chautthi fail.’

Drishyam, a thriller that eschews the standard trappings of the suspense genre, is replete with surprises.
For Ajay Singham Devgn, Drishyam represents a return to a long abandoned terrain dotted by such critical hits as Zakhm, Gangaajal and Omkara.

Drishyam is gripping in parts but is anything but an unblemished humdinger.

Director Nishikant Kamat's tale of a common man's dilemma, courage and deceit could suffer in comparison with the original by Jeethu Joseph, it is still one film that will reinstate your faith in the suspense genre. If Kahaani was the last memorable mainstream Hindi suspense thriller you watched, then Drishyam will be a grand new entry to that list.

Drishyam works because it's a finely crafted suspense thriller after a really long time. Drishyam works because you thought Indian filmmakers can't make good thrillers. Drishyam works because it shows two different India. Drishyam works because visuals can be deceptive.
