Drishyam: All you need to know about this Bollywood movie

by Ratan Srivastava

Nishikant Kamat helmed Drishyam, a 2015 Indian Bollywood thriller movie. The movie is indeed a remake of the same Malayalam film from 2013. Kumar Mangat Pathak, Ajit Andhare, and Abhishek Pathak produced the movie, which stars Ajay Devgn, Tabu, and Shriya Saran, as well as Ishita Dutta and Mrunal Jadhav.

In India, the movie was released in theatres on July 31, 2015. In India, it grossed 938.5 million dollars, with a global total of 1,110.5 million dollars. The overall cost of production, including print and advertising, was 380 million dollars.

Saif Ali Khan was confirmed as the leading man in October 2014, reprising the character portrayed by Mohanlal in the 2013 Malayalam precursor. There were also rumours that Akshay Kumar would play the lead, although, in November 2014, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Panorama Studios revealed that Ajay Devgn would star inside the Hindi new adaptation of the 2013 film Drishyam, which will be directed by Nishikant Kamat as well as produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures in affiliation to Panorama Studios.

The plan back then was for Devgn to repeat Mohanlal’s part from the 2013 film. Later, it was revealed that Tabu will portray Meera Deshmukh, a cop, while Shriya Saran would play Ajay Devgn’s character’s wife.

The movie’s principal filming was set to begin in February 2015. Viacom 18 Motion Pictures’ Chief Operating Officer, Ajit Andhare, remarked “Drishyam is a timeless film that captivates and intrigues you long after you’ve seen it. Its Malayalam and Telugu box office success speak for itself.” Actor Ajay Devgn was in Canada filming snow scenes for his forthcoming movie Shivaay, but due to the lack of snow, he had to delay the production and return to India to begin Drishyam instead. The movie’s first 20-day shoot started on March 13, 2015, in Goa, and finished on April 1, 2015. The movie’s second scheduling began in the second week of April.

Movie producer Ekta Kapoor issued a legal warning to the Malayalam producers following the announcement of the Hindi version. Ekta Kapoor obtained the film rights to Japanese novelist Keigo Higashino’s book The Devotion of Suspect X, and her legal team argued the Drishyam is just a cinematic version of the work. Jeethu Joseph, the filmmaker and screenwriter of the original Drishyam, has disputed that his picture is a remake or adaptation of the Japanese novel and the film.

The rejection of even a smidgeon of inspiration by the Japanese novel, according to commentator Nandini Ramnath, is similar to inside the film storyline “Jeethu Joseph’s achievement is in taking an intelligent concept and effectively localising it to the point where the connections (to the Japanese novel) appear tenuous unless examined closely.

Drishyam is the ideal crime film about a perfect crime, and Ishigami’s alibi for Yasuko and Misato is almost as convincing as Ishigami’s for Yasuko and Misato.” In Uttar Pradesh, Drishyam has been declared tax-free.
