It has been mixed feelings for fans of actor Venkatesh, hearing the announcement of the OTT release of his next, Drushyam 2, on Amazon Prime on November 25. While it's a relief to know that the much-awaited film finally has a release date, fans were slightly disappointed that a big star film like Drushyam 2 has to take the OTT route when theatres across the country are back to functioning in full capacity. Drushyam 2, an official remake of the Mohanlal hit Drishyam 2, also features Meena, Esther Anil, Kruthika, Nadhiya, Naresh and Vinay Varma and is directed by Jeethu Joseph (who also directed the original).

The intense trailer of Drushyam 2 was launched today in Hyderabad. Venkatesh looks as agile and fit as ever, in the shoes of Rambabu, a movie buff who's now a theatre owner in Andhra Pradesh, also looking to make a mark in the film industry as a writer. Just when Rambabu and family believe they have moved on from the personal tragedy in the life of their elder daughter Anju many years ago, the incident is back to haunt them in a way they least expect it to. The cops are still committed to crack the case and Rambabu has to be doubly careful, if he has to guard his family from danger. 

The trailer proves that the makers have done everything to retain the essence of the original and have not tampered with its soul. Venkatesh is composed and slips into the skin of Rambabu efficiently. Sampath Raj is back in business as a fiery cop while Nadhiya, Naresh and Meena complement the lead actor ably in the slick and emotional trailer, which is as impactful as the original. Satyam Rajesh, Chalaki Chanti and Thagubothu Ramesh too essay supporting roles in Drushyam 2. 

Jeethu Joseph has also written the story and the screenplay. Ramesh Samala, known for his work in Nithiin's Ishq, has penned the dialogues. Suresh Babu, Antony Perumbavoor and Rajkumar Sethupathy have jointly produced the movie which has music by Anup Rubens and lyrics by Chandrabose. Ace technician Marthand K Venkatesh has edited the film. Cinematographer Satish Kurup and art directors Rajeev Nair, Rajeev Kovilamkom are also part of the crew. Sripriya had directed the first part of Drushyam in Telugu. The Malayalam version Drishyam 2 also released directly on Amazon Prime on February 19.
