Drishyam is a Malayalam language thriller written and directed by Jeethu Joseph. The film starred Mohanlal and Meena in the lead roles and features Ansiba Hassan, Esther Anil, Kalabhavan Shajon, Asha Sarath, Siddique, Roshan Basheer and Neeraj Madhav in supporting roles.
The story of Drishyam follows the struggle of Georgekutty and his family, who come under suspicion when Varun Prabhakar, the son of the Inspector-general of police, goes missing after an attempt to physically harass Georgekutty’s daughter.
It is to be noted that Drishyam was the first Malayalam movie to gross more than Rs 50 crore.
Notably, Mohanlal and Joseph had recently collaborated for a thriller titled, Ram, which also stars Trisha Krishnan as the leading actress.
There have been rumours doing round on social media that RAM has been shelved. Clearing the air about Mohanlal starrer RAM being suspended, Joseph took to his Facebook account and wrote: “In the last two three days I have been getting calls and messages asking whether I have shelved my Mohanlal movie ‘RAM’ and planning another project. We had to stop the work of ‘RAM’ due to the spread of Covid Virus, but it will resume shoot once the virus threat is down in UK and Uzbekistan. Since kerala is one of the few places in the world where Corona has been controlled effectively, its likely to start the shoot early here. Considering this possibility, in the meantime I am thinking of a film which has its shoot entirely in kerala but this doesn’t mean in any way that I have abandoned the project ‘RAM’. It’s just being delayed due to the circumstances.”
Meanwhile, Mohanlal was recently seen in Malayalam film Lucifer, which went on to become the first ever Malayalam movie to gross more than Rs 200 crore worldwide. The film, a political thriller, saw Mohanlal play a character called Stephen Nedumpally.
