A film that’s written meticulously and handled diligently can seldom go wrong. DRISHYAM fortunately comes across like one engaging thriller that weaves thriller and drama just in the perfect blend. The film boasts of brisk pace that keeps you hooked in one event after the other. The film is nicely linked and connected and each scenes start making sense. The screenplay works wonderfully for the film because most of the scenes in second half have underlining questions beneath them. It compels to think, and answer some question for yourself.
While the first half of the film takes its sweet little time to build the intensity, the film carries on the intense in second half throughout till the last scene that leaves you shocked.
Although not everything is rosy for the film. The first half although short could have edited couple of scenes and the second half at places felt like spoon-feeding and repetitive.
Ajay devgn is excellent and maintains the level of performance throughout. Tabu surprises in her role and lends a very effective support in the second half of the film.
In totality, Drishyam is an engrossing dramatic thriller that will keep you at the edge of you seats. Although the film grapples with its pacing and editing at some scenes but there are enough reasons to make up for the glitches- Its unpredictable, well-performed, competently directed and extremely well written. Enough reasons why this must not be missed.
