So finally the Hindi version of Drishyam has released and Nishikant Kamat has done a fair enough job to make it as exciting as the original one. With visible directorial differences from the original one, Drishyam is an exciting remake that could have been wonderful if the acting part was superb. Lets have a look at the ups and downs of the movie in comparison to the original.

Positives:

  1. Even though he has given a different kind of perspective, Nishikant Kamat succeeds in making this Drishyam exciting. The partitioning of family bonding in the original one had more of jolly mood and Kamat in his brisk presentation focuses more on the crime that happens.

  2. The script has some really good tweaks which in my opinion strengthen the beauty of Vijay Salgaonkar’s master plan. The backdrop given to the elder girl and the ATM video footage shown as proof were quite impressive and the makers can feel proud that they haven’t blatantly copied the original.

  3. Tabu was a good choice for the character of the Commissioner and the actress had done it with ease. Kamat’s interpretation of the movie is more like Salgaonkar against Meera Deshmukh and Tabu was right up there with her solid portrayal.

  4. Kamlesh Sawanth who played the role of the crooked inspector was also bloody good. He may not have looked convincing in the trailer, but the guy nails it in the film.

  5. Cinematography was impressive. Some really good aerial shots were there. There isn’t much of artificiality in other scenes.

  6. The edits were also quite crisp. The pace with which scenes were chopped to create intrigue was good.

  7. Vishal Bharadwaj has composed the music of the movie. Both songs in Mr. Bharadwaj’s usual unusual style sounded interesting.

Negatives:

  1. On a comparison level with Mohanlal and Kamal Haasan, Ajay Devgn wasn’t that great at all. The emotional depth we saw in the portrayal of the first two wasn’t there in Ajay’s Vijay. Shriya Saran also had these problems of not being emotionally realistic.

  2. The art director could have been a bit more careful in making the attire of the home of Salgaonkar more of a middle class one. It looked too good to be the home of a miser middle class father.

Except for the performance part, Drishyam was made skilfully by Nishikant Kamat and for those who haven’t seen the original the performance won’t be a problem.
