Drishyam

Director: Nishikant Kamat
Actors: Kamlesh Sawant, Ajay Devgn, Tabu, Shriya Saran

Rating: 3.5 / 5

The movie develops well from the start and has few coincidences. But they are used perfectly throughout. The crux of the movie is its script that is almost developed flawlessly. Even when you think that script has shown everything, it extracts few more awesome spices from within and presents its brilliance. Cinematography shines from the start and consistently wonders all through. The first half shows the good thrilling intensity that makes the viewers want more from the second half. Fortunately, the second part shows much more than expected. Ending of a movie of such kind is very important and that was only scaring me at the end. But it was done very diligently and suited well. As per as the remake phenomenon is there (movie is remade from Malayalam Drishyam), I would love to see these kinds of remakes instead of silly commercial ones.

Both Tabu and Ajay Devgn were spot-on in their part. Although the main focus was completely on the theme and not on the stars at all but it was very important to play these characters well. Rising above all was Kamlesh Sawant (Inspector Gaitonde) who nailed the performance that was supposedly the most important role and character in the movie. We have seen him before in few good short roles but this was a comparatively bigger responsibility in which he succeeded. Few other characters were good and fit well with the flow.

Nishikant Kamat is well known to direct good high intense movies and he used his skill perfectly in this venture. He did full direction justice required for this remake. Certainly, he puts a good amount of appreciable effort.

It reminds me of a similar 2010 movie gem ‘Right Ya Wrong’ which many people are not aware of. Not inspired of course but both these movies are definitely a must watch.

Overall, an astonishing script supported with great cinematography and direction.
