Superstar Mohanlal was last seen in Drishyam 2 that released on Amazon Prime Video. With Drishyam 2, Mohanlal returned to the world of Georgekutty and his family. Starting off from where the first part ended, the film returned with a more intriguing plot. The sequel showed how Georgekutty (essayed by Mohanlal) and his family’s lives have altered post the fateful night in the first film. Fans were highly impressed with Mohanlal’s performance in the film.
Talking about his character and the film, Mohanlal said: “It is very difficult to understand Georgekutty. He is a very interesting character in the sense that, if you commit a crime and manage to protect yourself from getting caught, you would have that kind of intelligence.”
Mohanlal’s Drishyam 2 is set for a Hindi remake as well. Its 2015 Hindi adaptation, backed by Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak”s Panorama Studios Internationa, was led by Ajay Devgn portraying Mohanlal’s role and Tabu playing the Inspector General of Police.
