Drishyam 2: The expected story
Drishyam, released in 2013, ended on an interesting note where the character of Georgekutty, played by Mohanlal successfully buried the corpse of Varun under the foundation of the police station. As the police failed to find the body of Varun, Georgekutty and his family escaped from the clutches of law.
However, when it comes to the second part, Jeethu Joseph is expected to tell the story post the murder coverup. Even though Mohanlal's Georgekutty and his family are confident of covering up the murder effectively, the police are not convinced, and their shadow eyes are always behind them. In a recent interview, Jeethu Joseph also made it clear that Drishyam 2 will be a small movie with adequate elements of emotions and thrill.
