Drishyam 2 reviews: The case has reopened with plenty of twists



Drishyam 2 reviews: The case has reopened with plenty of twists

Drishyam 2 reviews are here. So here are some leading and audience reviews.

Synopsis: The Salgaonkars are still living in fear even after 7 years of that fateful night. With unexpected events and the police using everything in their power to find answers, will Vijay Salgaonkar save his family again or are they doomed?

TOI gives Drishyam 2 (3.5 stars out of 5.)

According to their review, making a sequel as good and intriguing as the first part was is a challenge in itself and this movie has passed that challenge. The movie begins right from where the first part ended, Vijay coming out of the police station with a shovel. However, there was a witness on that night because of whom the case reopens again.

Even though 7 years have gone by and the Salgaonkars are trying to move on in life, they are always on guard and the lingering fear is constant. As the plot thickens, Vijay who had full support from his community in the first part, starts losing the same as new things come into light. The first half is a slow burner building up to the second half which in turn builds up to the intriguing climax. The movie is full of twists and turns which will keep you glued to your seats and hooked to the screen.

Akshaye Khanna as the new IG of police does his character justice and Tabu as usual finnesed her role. Rajat Arora is still the sensible father who just wants things to settle soon and then we have Gaitonde still pining for his revenge. Shriya Saran, Ishita Dutta and Mrunal Jadhav have the same roles more or less but all of them have delivered.

Overall, this one’s a successful sequel. Definitely worth a watch.

Hindustan Times in their review say that ‘Drishyam 2 ticks most of the boxes in the checklist of Bollywood audiences and makes for a great watch.’ Vijay Salagaonkar is now  a theatre owner who wants to produce his own film and has the script all set as well. His love for Bollywood movies and suspense thriller plots are what he has implemented in the last part to save his family and now that the case is reopened, the mystery will only get more interesting.

Even though the audience knows what conspired in the first part, the truth is yet to come out in the light. This movie is a direct sequel and all the references of the prequel just make the audience reminisce just how good the prequel Drishyam was. With a new IG in town (Akshaye Khanna) who is hell bent on reopening the case and most importantly find the body and finally put Vijay behind the bars, How will Vijay save his family this time? Has the time come to finally confess?

The writer who also wrote the Malayalam version of the movie is the one behind this brilliant plot which is full of twists and gasp worthy moments. The screenplay doesn’t disappoint either. Every scene is a plot in itself and you don’t know what will happen next. The tension building is done right and it delivers results. The first half is slow, the second half builds upto the last 30 mins of the movie which will leave you speechless and full of different emotions.

Drishyam 2 doesn’t disappoint and is definitely worth watching in the theatre.

Vaathi starring Dhanush will release on this date.

WATCH: Cristiano Ronaldo storms off pitch after throwing his runner’s-up medal into stands




Cristiano Ronaldo and his AL-Nassr side lost the Riyadh Cup to AL Hilal on Saturday. It was a clinical performance from the Al-Hilal side as they won the match 2-0. It was a frustrating night for the Portugal legend as he was heckled by the fans in the crowd.

The cameras panned to Cristiano Ronaldo who was swarmed by his teammates. There were chants cheering on Lionel Messi from the stands. Already peeved after losing the game, Ronaldo lost his cool and threw his medal at the fans.

Watch the video here:

During the game, Ronaldo was seen showing disgraceful actions towards the AL-Hilal fans. A scarf which was thrown his way saw the Portugal superstar rub it in the most inappropriate area. The 39-year-old earned the ire of the fans after this incident came to light.

AL-Hilal down AL-Nassr to win Riyadh Cup 2024 –

The 2024 Riyadh Cup final saw some amazing football being played. Cristiano Ronaldo was all smiles as WWE Superstar The Undertaker came out to place the trophy. Once the action began it was an end-to-end encounter as both teams went hard at goal.

Serbian star Sergej-Milinkovic Savic opened the scoring in the 17th minute of the game. It was two-nil 13 minutes later as Salem Aldaswari scored an amazing goal. That was the end of the contest despite an hour left in the game to be played.

There was no way back for the Al Nassr side as they looked clueless in front of goal. Not many chances were created by Ronaldo and his team. Al Hilal’s defense held their own against a rampaging Al Nassr side in the last few minutes.

There was pandemonium in the stands as the final whistle was sounded and the Al Hilal fans celebrated. There was a chorus of Messi chants which visibly irked Ronaldo at the end of the game.

Ever since his move from Manchester United in late 2022, Cristiano Ronaldo has changed Saudi Football. The likes of Karim Benzema and N Golo Kante are currently playing in the Saudi Pro League. AL Hilal themselves signed noted Brazilian sensation Neymar who sic out injured. With the veteran star in the twilight of his career, this kind of behaviour is least expected from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sandeep Lamichhane convicted of molestation, jailed for eight years



Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane has been convicted of raping a 17-year-old in 2022. During the case, he kept playing for the team, notably during the Asia Cup 2023 and ODI World Cup qualifier in June last year. After the case was filed, he was playing for eventual winners, Jamaica Tallawahs. The leg-spinner was released from the team and was taken into custody.

“I know I am facing a difficult time of conspiracy and wrongful allegation and the ramification of its effect is something unimaginable. I am sure there must be some mechanism of compensating to the accused who proven to be innocent in our legal system,” he wrote. “I will soon seek legal support against wrongful prosecution and allegation made against me and I am sure I will get the justice and will return to the cricket ground soon to make the name and fame of my beloved country and I pray for speedy trial.”

After landing home, the former Delhi Capitals player claimed that the allegations made against him were baseless.

“All these things affected me mentally on one hand and on the other hand, I had to go through illness, and due to mental stress and ill health I kept myself in isolation. I have been mentally and physically affected by the portrayal and I have reached a state of imbalance and I have been bringing myself back to a normal state under the advice of doctors. My health is gradually improving, and I am planning to return to Nepal as soon as possible to defend against the false complaint against me,” the leggie wrote on Facebook in September 2022.

Talking about the current status, the bench also slapped him with a fine of Rs 300,000 (USD 2255 approx) and ordered him to pay Rs 200,000 (USD 1500 approx) in compensation to the victim. Lamichhane’s lawyer, Saroj Ghimire, told AFP that he “will appeal the decision in a higher court.”

WATCH: Gautam Gambhir makes endearing comment while answering question related to Virat Kohli



Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir is believed to have a personal dislike for former India skipper Virat Kohli. Over the years, Gambhir has been critical of the 2008 U19 World Cup-winning captain on a lot of issues. Not to forget, Gambhir has been vocal about not the media should be worshipping individual players.

During a talk show on Star Sports, the two-time World Cup winner was asked about the bowler Kohli faced while completing his 50th ODI hundred. As Gambhir gave the right answer, he also mentioned that his rivalry is with Kohli which stays on the field only.

He replied:

“Lockie Ferguson.”

Gambhir then smilingly went on to add:

“Ye aap baar baar dikhana, mujhe sab kuch yaad rehta hai. Ladai meri sirf on the field hai (Please show this clip again and again, I remember everything. My fight is only on the field)”

I want Virat Kohli to bat with the same intent he is known for: Gautam Gambhir

In another conversation. Gambhir said that Kohli must bat the same way against South Africa in the two-match Test series the way he does. Notably, the latter won’t play the practice game as he has come back to India for personal reasons. However, the right-hander will be available for the series.

“It will be in Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s minds that Shreyas Iyer, who is on his first tour, will be batting after Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul, if he plays, will be playing as a wicketkeeper for the first time. However, I want Virat Kohli to bat with the same intent he is known for.”

India’s squad for Tests: Rohit Sharma (C), Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Ruturaj Gaikwad, KL Rahul (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah (VC), Prasidh Krishna, KS Bharat (wk)
