Ajay Devgn's "Drishyam" is a remake of a very popular Malayalam film of the same name, starring Mohanlal. While the edge-of-the-seat thrill was what took the audience by storm, the rehashed version has a few more reasons than just that, which make it an unmissable feat.
Ajay Devgn, the eternal brooder
The actor has lately featured in junky, mindless entertainers; this will see him take a different route. In the trailer, he is shown as someone who is greatly pained at the way his life functions and yet goes on with it for the sake of his family – wife and two kids. But, there appears to be a dark side, which puts him in a grey area.
Tabu, the feisty cop
Tabu has been on a roll. After essaying the ever-torn Ghazala in "Haider", she is back on the big screen as a tough cop who will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery behind her son's disappearance. She throws a few punches and mouths fierce dialogues, this leading lady is definitely here to stay.
The Ajay-Tabu connection
The last time anyone saw them together and remembered was a little over 20 years ago. A floppy haired Ajay biking through streets as Tabu lip-synced to the famous "Ruk ruk ruk, arre baba ruk" song. That was "Vijaypath" (1994), in which they played lovers. But, in this film they are at loggerheads.
The actress may have achieved superstardom down south, but she is yet to taste success in B-Town. Having done mediocre films earlier, this may finally help in taking her Bollywood career further.
It's a story about a family's direct involvement in an accidental killing, and how the father devises a cover-up plan to escape the bars. The cat and mouse game and the whole whodunit plot will sure keep the audience engaged till the end.
