He lives happily in a rather large & well-decorated house surrounded by a typical garden and an attractive wife. Father to two daughters, he loves watching movies all night & takes on local corrupt police officers sassily in verbal duels. He is fairly popular amidst local folk. Unfortunately, Vijay is also a bit crass, not above hinting at his libido over the dining table in the presence of his teenage daughter (Ishita Dutta).Life takes a drastic turn when his teenage daughter & wife end up killing a young, lascivious boy who threatens them with universal shaming. Unfortunately, the boy turns out to be the son of Goa’s Inspector General, Meera Deshmukh (Tabu).‘Drishyam’ focuses on the planned smart decimation of evidence by Vijay to protect his family; survival instincts honed to razor sharpness. The police chase, investigate & harass, even as the IG takes it upon herself to break this middle class, average man & his family. Their frustrations & edginess contrast well as Tabu, Rajat Kapoor & Ajay spark their common scenes with tension & emotion.Eventually, the common man prevails; and surprisingly, isn’t shown to regret the unplanned death of a young man at all. Only in the penultimate scene, is a reiteration carried out of his justification.With a deafeningly loud background score, and repeated reiterations of why, how and what (to explain and re explain the plot), by the penultimate scene, you only focus on the brightly lit, red EXIT sign.My Review: A patchy, unremarkable approach to a brilliant script, this film left me with a feeling of how much more it could have been! As an adaptation of plot points, ‘Drishyam’ is perfect. But in adding range and fleshing out the film’s story, it is patchy.
