Talking about Drishyam 2, written and directed by Jeethu Joseph, the main cast – Mohanlal, Meena, Ansiba Hassan and Esther Anil – will be reprising their roles from the 2013 released movie. The director had told The Hindu from where the sequel will continue. He was quoted as saying, “The police hadn’t closed the murder investigation. So the film will examine how the family deals with their own personal trauma and reactions from the society.”
Produced by Antony Perumbavoor under Aashirvad Cinemas’ banner, Drishyam 2 went on floors in September. The makers are reportedly eyeing to release this thriller in theatres by the end of January next year.
