While the Malayalam thriller Drishyam ’was a hit when it was released in 2013, all eyes are on‘ Drishyam 2 ’. Mohanlal, who also starred in the first film, said the second part was delayed because everyone on the team was ready to create something perfect with this direction from Jeethu Joseph.

“The pressure to come up with the story and meet the audience's expectations was definitely there, so there was a delay in releasing the sequel. It takes at least seven to eight years to make a movie with these types of characters, emotions, and intelligence. Great things always take time.

Since you already know the background story in ‘Drishyam 2’, the pressure naturally increases, since our story is in competition with itself. Still, I'm confident that audiences will love the story and the film. "
