Mohanlal reprises his role of Georgekutty from the first film as the story unfolds six years from where the first one had ended.

'Drishyam 2' is getting love from fans and critics alike
The movie has received great response since its release on Friday. Film critics appreciated the movie for its story and many termed it a "must watch." Celebrities including Prithviraj Sukumaran also gave the movie glowing reviews and applauded the cast and crew. Fans say the new film lives up to the thrill and entertainment value of the original.
The original 'Drishyam' was a huge hit
Drishyam had struck a chord with the audience largely because it was the story of a man who would do anything to protect his family. Released in 2013, the first film was a critical and commercial success. The film became such a big hit that it was later remade in Hindi with the same name, starring Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, and Tabu.
