Mohanlal’s Drishyam 2, which recently released on OTT platform has garnered amazing reviews from the fans and experts. While director Jeethu Joseph is on cloud nine with the success of the film, the happiness of him has just multiplied tenfold as Baahubali and RRR helmer sent him message praising his writing and direction after watching the thriller.
The message reads, “Hi Jeethu, This is Rajamouli. Film Director… watched drishyam 2, few days back…It lingered so much in my thoughts that I watched went back to watch drishyam first part…(I only watched drishyam in Telugu when it released) I must say the direction screenplay editing acting..every craft is truly amazing..but the writing is really something else…it is world standard…the first part itself is a masterpiece..for the second one…to come up with a storyline that seamlessly merges with the first, with the same gripping narration is nothing short of brilliance..hoping to see many more masterpieces from you.”Taking to his Instagram handle, Jeethu shared the screenshot of Rajamouli’s message and wrote, “Thank you Rajamouli sir… I am honored…you made my day (sic).”

Just like audience, Drishyam 2 impressed our critic Russel D’Silva, who gave 4 stars to the film and wrote, “Some of the sharper bends are not quite as Hitchcockian as the first Drishyam was all the way through, but with 99% of its twists and turns certain to evoke repeated ‘WOWS’, Drishyam 2 is as wonderful a sequel as any Mohanlal fan could have wished for to his sublime 2013 classic. He and Director Jeethu Joseph play ‘fool me once, fool me twice’ with the cops, and you wish they’d fool us over and over again. I’m going with 4 out of 5 stars.” Praising the direction and technicalities, he added, Just like the first film, Drishyam 2 also takes time to set up, and like its predecessor, the buildup is well worth the wait. At two and a half hours, not once do you feel the length, as post an hour into the movie, once the ball really starts rolling, all you wish to do is strap in for the ride and never get off. Keeping the essence of Drishyam in tact, not once does Jeethu Joseph’s screenplay lose sight of the ‘family first’ ethos of the main characters, even while enjoying playing hide and seek with our senses — the rug is pulled from beneath our feet at several key moments, and each time you enjoy it even more.”
