Starting off from where the first part ended, the upcoming Amazon Original Movie raises the stakes with an edgier and more-thrilling plot.

The gripping tale will keep the fans at the edge of their seats, as the man of the house strives to protect his family once again.
“Critics, fans and the audience showered us with tremendous love and appreciation seven years ago. We didn’t expect the film to receive such a phenomenal response and garner the cult-status”, said the acclaimed actor Mohanlal on the launch of the trailer. “With Drishyam 2, we aim to take this legacy forward and accomplish a new cinematic milestone. Drishyam 2 isn’t just a good-versus-evil crime thriller. It is an immersive story about Georgekutty and his family and the emotional journey he goes through to save them, at any cost. Over the last few years, viewers have written in to us with so many theories. I am happy to say that we will now finally dispel all theories and answer all questions with the sequel. I am glad that we are premiering Drishyam 2 on Amazon Prime Video which will give viewers across the globe an opportunity to watch the movie from the comfort of their homes, along with their families.”

Driven with this positive thought and buoyed with the overwhelming response, I have toyed with the idea of bringing the epic franchise back to the audience, but always changed my mind. Wherever I went I would be asked whether we would be coming back with a sequel. I am thankful to Lalettan for his faith in me and for his support to make my vision a reality. We have worked with immense passion and commitment to bring this film to our audiences and now we can’t wait to hear their reactions. I am delighted to have joined forces with Amazon Prime Video which has a resounding reach.”
