At first, the “Drishyam” was made in Malayalam. The director of the movie was Jeetu Joseph. The story writer was also Jeetu. However, Mohanlal played the lead role in this film.
This film was a massive hit, so the makers decided to make it in different languages. Such as “Drishya” in Kannada, led by Ravichandran in 2014, “Drushyam” in Telugu, and in this lead role played by Venkatesh in 2014.
“Papanasam” in Tamil, starring Kamal Hassan in 2015; “Drishyam” in Hindi, starring superstar Ajay Devgn in 2015; and “Dharmayududhaya” in Sinhala, led by Jackson Anthony.
After all these Indian languages, this film was also remade in Chinese, titled “Sheep Without a Shepherd”. It was also a blockbuster movie and earned $199 million.
However, “Drishyam 2” in Malayalam was wrapped up during the COVID pandemic and started streaming on OTT in 2021.
Nonetheless, “Drishyam 2” in Hindi was the blockbuster movie of 2022 and grossed $45 million worldwide.
What is the Story of Drishyam?
In this movie, Ajay performed as Vijay. And Vijay’s daughter has accidentally killed a policewoman’s son to defend herself from physical harassment.
But the policewoman threatened to ruin Vijay’s family when she found her son lost, but Vijay did everything to protect his family and left zero proof of the boy’s death.
