Bollywood is on a roll, first Bajrangi Bhaijaan and now Drishyam, which discovers the forte of intelligent cinema that is long lost in the league of Item Numbers and masala pot boilers. What makes this movie more interesting is the plot and screenplay, one knows little about the story and its the sheer joy of discovering what next? Now what?
The character build up of Ajay Devgan is very strong, a common man who loves watching movies on his small television in his office every night, who eats at an ordinary restaurant and couldnt clear his fourth class in school. It is this very modesty that makes one connect with him instantly and relate with the proceedings. When a situation arrives due to an unfortunate circumstance then we see how a common man can go to any extent to save his family drawing a thin line between wrong and right. We get a sense of his practical knowledge that he has gained from watching cinema at the very start and his entire strategy is plotted around ideas he has gathered from the movies.
Its an experience where one feels sympathetic for both the main characters- Ajay Devgan and the terrific Tabu. The movie keeps one hooked at the edge of their seats with the ongoing tension and makes one applaud for the intelligentsia that Ajay Devgan unfolds.
It was a great feeling when the audience applauded the terrific climax scene, the suspense element, which makes a point that India Cinema and viewers are not hungry of senseless Item number and Rom-Com's. At a duration of 2 hours and 43 minutes, it keeps you on your toes and thinking.
A masterpiece that is not be missed!
