Mohanlal’s highly anticipated Drishyam 2 will be the latest film to join the list of direct OTT releases during the Covid times. Yes! The big massive announcement was made on the birth of the new year. Drishyam 2 has become one of the first major Malayalam films to have a direct digital release and the announcement has taken everyone by surprise. Drishyam 2 will stream on Amazon Prime Video platform very soon. The makers are yet to confirm the release date officially. The teaser of the film was also unveiled on New Year and it has been garnering very good attention from the audience. The teaser shows us a glimpse of what we can expect in the film and interestingly, we are going to see the film from where the first part ended.

The same characters come back again and it looks like the story is going to restart from a different angle. Mohanlal as Georgekutty has got a responsibility to save his family members once again and let us see how he strategically plans things out. The teaser is interestingly packed with shots that give us a good tease and curiosity. The teaser carries a phrase that reads, “Some secrets are meant to stay hidden forever, but, there are no secrets, that time does not reveal,” and this text appears in the shot that shows the place where Georgekutty hid Varun Prabhakar’s body. The phrase indeed tells you what the movie is going to deal with.

Drishyam 2 is directed by Jeethu Joseph who directed the first part and several other notable flicks in Malayalam cinema. Meena plays Mohanlal's pair, while Siddique, Asha Sharath, Murali Gopy, Ansiba, Esther Anil, and Saikumar in supporting roles.
