Mohanlal is currently on a high with the success of Drishyam 2, his latest outing. The Jeethu Joseph directorial has emerged as one of the most-loved Indian films of recent times. Despite getting a direct OTT release on Amazon Prime Video, Drishyam 2 has earned blockbuster status and is getting immense positive reviews from both the audiences and critics.
Along with the cine-goers, the Indian film industry members are also heaping praises over the Mohanlal starrer, which has been considered as one of the finest sequels ever made. As expected, Drishyam 2 is now getting remade into Telugu and Hindi languages.
Here we present the 5 things that Drishyam 2 taught us with its success. Have a look...
Stardom Can't Take Away Acting Prowess
Mohanlal is unarguably the most bankable actor of contemporary Malayalam cinema. But, the superstar was often criticized in the last few years, for not taking up characters that make use of his immense talent. But Mohanlal proved that stardom can't take away his acting prowess, with his portrayal of George Kutty in Drishyam 2.
The complete actor once again amazed us with his effortlessness and finesse in showcasing the slightest emotions of his character on screen. We really wish to see Mohanlal in more complex roles like this.
Sequels Can Recreate The Magic Of Originals
The Mohanlal-Jeethu Joseph movie recreated the magic of its original, by keeping the essence of the original story and characters intact. It is commendable how the film portrays the transitions that happened in the Drishyam universe, with a well-written screenplay and exceptional detailing. Drishyam 2 is unarguably the perfect guide to all filmmakers, on how to make an effective sequel.
Language Is Not A Barrier For Well-Made Films
Drishyam 2 is created quite a stir among both the Malayali and non-Malayali audiences with its excellent making and brilliant performances. Irrespective of their mother tongues, the cine-goers across the globe have been all praises for the Mohanlal starrer. This once again proves that language is not a barrier for well-made films.
The OTT Release Has Its Own Merits
It is a fact that the film industry is suffering a great loss with no theatrical releases due to the pandemic. But the OTT platforms play an integral role in making the films reach audiences all over the world. It would've been impossible for Drishyam 2 to achieve this massive reach if it had released in theatres during these tough times. Getting an Amazon Prime Video release has immensely contributed to the global popularity of the Mohanlal starrer.
Content Will Always Remain The King
Drishyam 2 once again proves that nothing can replace good content when it comes to cinema. And that is exactly why this Jeethu Joseph-directed sequel went on to become a roaring success. No star power or promotional activities can take the place of good content, in cinema. And if the content is brilliant, all other factors don't really matter.
