Drishyam review: This Ajay Devgn film could have been better if it had been tighter
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
We meet our central guy Vijay (Ajay Devgn), a self-made man, who lives in Goa with his family
Sonia Chopra, Sify
It Is A Remarkably Resonant Remake!
Alas, nothing comes of it and we never get a battle between equals. Perhaps because she’d have eaten him alive: lug, luggage and all.

Several parts of Drishyam work but the film is more tackiness than craft
Raja Sen, REDIFF
Suspense drama 'Drishyam' picks up speed towards second half
Sneha May Francis, Emirates 24X7
But do watch this film for Ajay and Tabu’s performances and of course, that one-in-a-million story. Content, after all, is the key
s they say, good things come to all those who wait and in the case of 'Drishyam', you will have to wait through the initial snail paced part and once you pass this phase you will be rewarded with a relishing brain twister which is a must watch for all those who love good cinema.
Divya Solgama, Moviez Adda
Thrilling concept in an average remake
Rachit Gupta, Filmfare
Now forget everything you just read and go watch the film

Drishyam is gripping in parts but is anything but an unblemished humdinger.

Rohit Upadhyay, Aaj Tak
Drishyam could've been crisper (runtime: 163:33 minutes) and woven in a few more tricks and surprises. But it is only a lazy remake and a lot is lost in translation.
Mumbai Mirror
While this movie has been made in five other languages inclusive of the Hindi version. The Tamil version, Papanasam featuring Kamal Haasan released just a few weeks ago and fared very well at the box office too
Tushar P Joshi, BollywoodLife
Regurgitating a tried & tested template of a successful Malayalam film, Drishyam becomes a gripping, layered watch in it’s second half. Tabu is brilliant, & Rajat Kapoor complements her ably with a subtle act.
Archita Kashyap, Koi Moi
Entertaining with a good script & enhanced performance
Satya Kandala, Economic Times
This film is a must watch for Ajay Devgn and Tabu’s electrifying performances!
Tushar P Joshi, Bollywood Life
For anyone who has not watched any of the other versions Drishyam would be a welcome addition to the range of cinema that the month of July has sprung out.
Shishir Gautam, Nowrunning
I am most itched to tell you about the murder, about the missing dead body and sundry. But I would suggest you watch the film. Don’t miss the last scene. It’s the kind of masterpiece one expects in a thriller, murder mystery.

Drishyam is nifty and is all about the nail-bitingness that edge-of-the-seat stuff are made of.

While Ajay leads the star cast as a performer, Tabu turns out to be the other outstanding actor in the film, although the remaining characters appear to lack detailing

The film is worth watching for Ajay’s and Tabu’s performance and the engaging battle of wits between their characters.

Amodini, Planet Bollywood
Ajay, who is the prey here, shines in his role of the protective father. While his family definitely needed to be cast in a more discerning fashion, half a star in this review is reserved for Tabu, who is outstanding as his predator.
Meena Iyer, Times of India
Drishyam isn't a shot-by-shot remake of the Malayalam film and in that may lie some of its problems.

On the whole, Drishyam is a well-made film with some exciting moments but it has appeal more for the classes. It is also too lenghty

Drishyam is everything a Bollywood film should be – smart, hard-hitting and story-driven. It’s a must-watch, especially if you enjoy suspense films!

Ajay Devgn and Tabu starrer Drishyam will be out this Friday. While this movie has been made in five other languages inclusive of the Hindi version. The Tamil version, Papanasam featuring Kamal Haasan released just a few weeks ago and fared very well at the box office too. So, how does the Hindi film fare?

Kamat’s film works well if you haven’t seen the original. Otherwise, this remake might fall a tad short.

Drishyam movie is a remake of the Malayalam film of the same name. Ajay plays a middle-class family man and he will be seen in a totally different avatar

Seeing is believing.. watch 'Drishyam' to see the actor Ajay Devgn returning to his intensity best in this emotionally packed powerful, faithful, pulse riser, powered by superlative performance that envelopes a relevant message of morality and upbringing.
