Ashdoc's short review---Drishyam ( hindi )



Both Tabu and Ajay Devgan have matured sufficiently to play parents of young boys and girls , even when the Khans and Kumars are romancing young girls .

Drishyam tells the story of a self made man ( Ajay Devgan ) who may be hald educated , but has a brain which works like a razor....and his heart is in the right place , for it beats only for his family....

And his family is the world to him , consisting of two daughters and wife ( played by Shriya Sharan )....the setting is Goa....they are middle class maharashtrians who live life within their limited means and do so happiliy....

But one day the members of this family get involved in a terrible incident , though the incident is not of their making....

Vijay ( Devgan ) has been bold enough to confront a police officer over his corruption earlier , and now that police officer is on to his tail to get Vijay's family arrested for the incident....

And powerful people ( Tabu , who plays a very high level police officer ) want to see the culprits arrested because they and their near and dear ones are are personally involved , while all needles of suspicion point towards Vijay....

But ultimately your sympathy goes towards the suspects , while the police will be looked with fear and loathing....and such are the power packed performances by the family to protect each other that the task of sympathising with them becomes too easy....
The police officer named Gaitonde also evokes your hatred by his performance as the face of evil .

The story is slow in the first half , but boy!! when it picks up momentum it just arrests your attention in the second half....

The music I found to be almost nonexistent , or maybe my mind was too much absorbed in the story and skipped through it....

What I remembered was Tabu's breasts jutting through her police uniform , something that was evident even in the film's promos....but her situation was such that I wondered why she had been made to wear such a figure hugging dress ; was not a more demure dress correct for such a situation....??

Whatever be the mistakes , the film moves at a electric pace once it picks momentum , and is superbly crafted....the ending is most satisfying especially , for it bring closure to the people involved....

So why the name Drishyam ( the sighting ) ?? That I think is because Vijay cleverly succeeds in convincing many people that they have sighted him in some other place than where the incident took place on that day , and their alleged 'sightings' of him form a formidable stumbling block in the police investigation .

The film has been made on a smallish budget , for it has no fancy locations and no fancy photography even though the setting of Goa was ideal for that . The director has concentrated on making it a thriller , and his concentration has worked brilliantly !!

Verdict---Real good .
Four stars .

How can Tabu's boobs sticking out be a mistake? You still have long way to go when it comes to writing a good spicy movie review.

she is investigating her son who has disappeared and at that point his death is a distinct possibility and tabu knows that .

seeing the jutting breasts in promos does give you the hots , but a mother at point of grief....not done

So maybe she should have got a mastectomy done when her son disappeared.

Or gotten all her clothes re-tailored. Darji bhaiyya, mera beta gum ho gaya hai. Zara yeh kameez loose kar do.

Kya doctor saab - aap bhi na.

Sex change would be more appropriate, from Tabu to Tabrez.

you are treating it like a real life situation . obviously the director knew it was a tragic scene and could have given more demure clothes to her . but her son is probably dead and here the director makes her strut about showing the shape of her boobs to enhance her sex appeal . and the son is dead even before her entry in the film .

Re: Ashdoc's short review---Drishyam ( hindi )

Watched this movie, too slow and looks like Tabassum forgot acting fully. I give 2 stars on 5, ordinary movie with bekaar songs.

Ashdoc you overstated Tabu strutting in figure hugging clothes, only one scene where she wears police uniform, rest of the time she is dressed like elegant housewife.

Re: Ashdoc's short review---Drishyam ( hindi )

Her boobs are the point of discussion?? Goes on to prove men think with their little heads most of the time.

I saw the Telugu version and I was torn between sympathizing the girls father and annoyed with the same man for fooling the police (crime is a crime after all). I guess I can't really say much without spoiler alerts.

It's an amazing movie. Loved it.

Problem with these movies is that they make a hero out of someone who has fooled law system. Same was true for special 26 as well.

in this movie the law is represented by a corrupt police officer who is hell bent on creating trouble in ajay devgan's life . what else can devgan do ??

anyway devgan is an innocent man . the crime is not of his making . the person who is dead is a criminal himself even though he is a police officer's son .

Re: Ashdoc's short review---Drishyam ( hindi )

Bad movie -- bad acting by Tabu -- bad acting by the woman who played Devgun's wife -- the whole family beating scene toward the end was vrey stupid -- Devgun talks about 'habeus corpus' and a cousin who is a lawyer in the beginning of the movie and yet in his plight there is no lawyer representing him..?? Are we to believe that the law system in India has gone medieval where families including little children can be picked up, interrogated and tortured at the whim of a police inspector?

If police interrogation happens inside IG's office or home, whatever that was, without FIR or arrest warrant, I don't know who wrote the story.

Anyone who tries to hide a murderer is not 'innocnet'.
Yes, the girl was a victim. And yes, if it were my daughter, I would surely protect her, but that doesn't make it right.

Re: Ashdoc's short review---Drishyam ( hindi )

So the girl should rot in jail for manslaughter because she was filmed while bathing? This is almost like raped girl must marry rapist.
