If the reports are to be believed, all the films in the Top 5 all-time highest TRP rating list of Malayalam cinema feature Mohanlal in the lead role. Thus, the complete actor has once again proved he is the biggest superstar the industry has ever seen. With the success of Drishyam 2, Mohanlal has once again cemented his massive popularity among the cine-goers.
Coming to Drishyam 2, the movie which had to skip the theatrical release due to the pandemic, was directly released on Amazon Prime Video in February 2021. The highly anticipated sequel of the 2013-released blockbuster Drishyam succeeded in impressing both the audiences and critics alike. The Mohanlal starrer also emerged as the first-ever OTT blockbuster from the Malayalam film industry.
The movie, which depicted how George Kutty and his family face their past, is scripted by director Jeethu Joseph himself. Mohanlal once again played the central character George Kutty, while the senior actress Meena returned in the role of his wife Rani. Drishyam 2, which is produced by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner Aashirvad Cinemas, is now getting remade to the major Indian languages including Telugu and Hindi.
