Actor-filmmaker Prithviraj Sukumaran wrote a lengthy post on the eve of the release of Drishyam 2, detailing how much he enjoyed the 2013 crime thriller sequel. “Drishyam 2,” he wrote. “I wanted to say something about the film for a long time. Seems to be just a few hours away from the world premiere. It is okay not to hold on at any time. It is a big responsibility to follow a cult of cinema with a sequel. And something happens like Drisham, a film that changed a lot of industry plans, the pressure on a proposed 2 part would be immense (I believe..I know!). The actor-director was referring to the pressure he has exerted for Mpuran, the sequel to Lucifer.
Prithviraj gave rave reviews of Jethu Joseph’s latest film, describing it as his best work since Natakam.
“But how brilliantly Jitu has drawn it! Where do you take Georgekutty 6 years down the line? Has his incredible pen softened to create and live a fictional story? Does he make a slip? Does he eventually get ostracized? Does time and law take hold? If you think you already know..so you are in for one hell of a surprise! Is brilliantly written and conceived. This is Jethu’s best film after DRISHM! He was the first person I called after seeing it. I’m so happy for you brother! (Sic), “he said.
Prithviraj also said that he cannot wait to work with Mohanlal again. “I’ll say this for now .. The class is permanent..I repeat..Pradhan! Georgekutty is undoubtedly one of the most iconic characters in Malayalam cinema. Cheetah..I wait to re-direct you and be guided by you Can’t! ❤️ PS: Actor Murali Gopi has arrived. Subtle, brilliant. I say that he has also seen KURUTHI’s final edit! (Sic), “he signed.
Drishm 2 starring Meesh, Ansiba Hassan, Esther Anil, Asha Sarath and Siddiqui is also airing on Amazon Prime Video.
