Vijay is a multidimensional character and he creates an engaging narrative onscreen. Abhishek Pathak (director) has a fresh vision for this film. I’m keenly looking forward to part 2, filling in the large shoes of the earlier film with people investing in the mystery and the characters.”
As of now, there has not been any announcement regarding the date of the release of the second installment but if the speculations are to be believed, Drishyam 2 could see a release this year.
