In a remote hillside region in Kerala, Georgekutty (Mohanlal) owns a cable-TV network. With his wife and two children, he has a joyful existence. The first part of the film focuses on their happy family. During the events, Georgekutty’s daughter, Anju, leaves on a school excursion. After a few days, Anju encounters a boy who was on the school trip with her. He blackmails her by showing her a video he took of her during the school trip. He is inadvertently killed by Rani and Anju over the course of events. When Georgekutty returns home, he is informed of the incidents, and a mind game starts, since the dead person is the son of IG Geeta Prabhakar.

Drishyam Movie Review

The first part of the film is deliberately slow-paced, showing the viewer the brighter times in Georgekutty’s household. This part has aspects from both the drama and comedy genres. From the conclusion of the first half, the viewer is thoroughly engrossed in the twist of events that begin to emerge. The second part is more thriller-like, and it concerns how the family, despite the vindictive villainy of a corrupt officer, holds firm even while the law takes its course. A tale or a film has its own way of progressing, and it does so in a zig-zag pattern, encapsulating all of our life’ ups and downs.
