#Drishyam Tabu should be hero and villain in every film! Transplanting story location would have been successful had it not been for the spanking new house with its Fab India furnishings. #Drishyam Apart from sets, Ajay Devgn & Shriya Saran's clothes distractingly new & fashionable. Screaming opposite of ordinary, middle class #Drishyam Hindi #Drishyam slicker & smoothens rough edges of the Malayalam one but ends up making dramatic scenes boring. Had problems with set up of conflict in original #Drishyam which blatantly plays into Kerala's obsessive fear-mongering reg women and safety only added to existing narrative of keeping women safe by corralling them in homes, allowing man any recourse in protecting their 'honour' Also played into fear of things not native incl. strangers (blackmailer was green-eyed guy), new tech (internet, smartphones) #Drishyam Hindi #Drishyam drinking game: Shots every time a character says 'Chauthi fail, gawaar, anpadh' & 'main ek maa hoon/ tum ek maa ho'

There was a big pressure for #Drishyam as it is the remake of big succeed South movie but Nishikant Kamat has presented it so brilliantly. No word for #Tabu. First #Haider and now #Drishyam. OMG!! She is doing what she failed to do in the early days of her career. Salute. Overall, #Drishyam is that kind of film which rarely made in Bollywood. It will force you to think and care. Must watch. 4/5*

#Drishyam Review: Remake of South ..intense movie ,2nd half drags a bit and Ajay devgn has done a fantastic job..Music Average. #Drishyam Don't expect comedy or entertainment or a catchy songs. It's an intense drama with good acting by all..3*/5* #Drishyam runs in the similar pace as Aamir Khan's Talaash.
Aditi Raval @RJADITI
#Drishyam film is strictly for a Tabu or @ajaydevgn fan, Baaki climax saaro chhe pan tya sudhi besvu aghru... Slow & Lenghty!! (2.5/5) #Drishyam is a one time watch only if you are a diehard #fan of #Tabu or #ajaydevgan
