Storyline

Georgekutty (Mohanlal) is a cable TV network owner in a remote and hilly village in Kerala. He lives a happy life with his wife and 2 girls. The first half revolves around the depiction of their happy family. Anju (Ansiba), Georgekutty's daughter goes to a school trip in between the proceedings. After a few days a guy who had been at the school trip with her meets Anju. He blackmails her with a video of her that he had captured during the school trip. In the course of events he is accidentally killed by Rani (Meena) and Anju. Georgekutty on returning home is appraised of the events and thus begins a cat and mouse game as the murdered person is the son of IG Geeta Prabhakar (Asha Sharath) and Prabhakar (Siddique). How the family weathers the storm that ensues during the murder investigation forms the rest of the story leading to a deeply satisfying and unexpected climax. Written by Athul

Obviously one of the Best Malyalam thrillers out there!
2 January 2014 | by (U.A.E) – See all my reviews

Drishyam is directed by Jithu Joseph and casts Mohanlal in the Main role.It starts of like a normal film but by the interval you will be enthralled by the epic twist.As the trailer never showed much about the movie,you will be shocked by the twist.The BGM is excellent and provides a very good backing for the movie.Mohanlal is at his very best and Jithu Joseph continues his success from "Memories".I can't tell you much about the story as I might spoil it for you.You MUST watch this movie RIGHT AWAY! and I promise you that you will be very content.It's the first time that I have Stood up and gave a standing Ovation for a film that I have watched but I wasn't alone,nearly everyone in the the theatre joined in.You will be going back home with a smile on your face,happy that you could witness such a film.
