Hurry! 50% off on 'Drishyam 2' tickets if booked today
Talk about innovative promotional strategies! Ahead of the release of the anxiously anticipated Drishyam 2 on November 18, its makers are offering a 50% discount on its release day tickets to people who book them on Sunday (October 2). Ajay Devgn, Tabu, and Shriya Saran will be reprising their roles in this Abhishek Pathak directorial, while Akshaye Khanna is a new cast addition.
Why does this story matter?
- Drishyam 2 is a sequel to Drishyam (2015), an edge-of-the-seat thriller appreciated for its multilayered narrative, Devgn and Tabu's performances, and unpredictable twists.
- Drishyam was the Hindi remake of the Malayalam film Drishyam (2013), now a full-fledged franchise across industries, starring Mohanlal.
- Though makers haven't confirmed it, the Drishyam franchise is said to be loosely based on Keigo Higashino's The Devotion of Suspect X.
October 2 played a key role in 'Drishyam's plot
Film critic-trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the update on social media. He wrote, "Drishyam 2 makers tie up with multiple chains to offer 50% discount for the release day if tickets are booked on 2 Oct 2022." October 2 has been chosen to kickstart the promotions since the date plays a key role in Drishyam and was the pivot point of the entire mystery.

Don't forget to watch the recall teaser before 'Drishyam 2'
Drishyam 2 makers recently took viewers down memory lane through a recall teaser that featured several critical points from Drishyam. It included Sameer's "accidental" murder, the cat and mouse chase between the Salgaonkar family and the authorities, and the web of lies Vijay (Devgn) weaves to protect his family. Toward the end, we also caught a glimpse of Vijay "confessing" to his crimes.
