Story is gripping and performances by everyone are stunning.

Length of 2hr and 43min for a thriller is too long.

Overall, if you love thriller movies, or just want to watch a great, intelligent, and entertaining film, watch Drishyam.

After that starts a thrilling ride in which Meera want evidence to prove Vijay and his family guilty , and Vijay will do anything to save his family as he say - "EK INSAAN KE LIYE USKI FAMILY HI SABKUCH HOTI HEI AUR UNHE BACHANE KE LIYE WO KISI BHI HADD TAK JA SAKTA HEI".

Please do yourself a favor, stop reading reviews of this film, go and watch this absolute mind blowing thriller which is rare gem of Indian cinema.

His performance was intense, natural and overall great.

For all the Ajay Devgn fans out there, especially those who were complaining about him performing more of gravity defying stunts in his last flicks with Rohit Shetty and not portraying realistic, grounded and intense roles, just go and watch Drishyam.

Mind blowing suspense and thrill till the last minute will make you sit tight on your seats is what the biggest plus point of the movie is.

A suspense drama with a nail-biting finish, Drishyam holds the viewer by the eyeballs till its' engaging climax.

After some time drama in first half is slow but second half is very intense and drama keeps you on edge.

There are intense, nail biting moments with the viewers intrigued with the suspense of how the actors are going to cover the crime that they have committed.

The movie will remain with me in the days to come for family emotions and for the compelling confrontations between its prey and the predator.

Sriya disappoints and does not hold up well, both the kids were amazing , Gaytonde nails it as the bad cop, Tabu is strictly average after her award winning role in Haider & finally Ajay is back to his intense roles where he delivers a powerful punch .

If you thought Ajay Devgan and Tabu's riveting performances would be a reason sufficient enough to watch this movie,then let me tell you.

Ajay Devgan and Tabu have given the best of their performance in this gripping thriller.

Yes, it's a masterpiece and mind-blowing concept and it goes down as one of the most entertaining films that I have ever watched.

Mind blowing .

Movie Is unpredictable till the end, Ajey Devgan has managed to keep his audience at the edge of the seat Till the end of the movie, it's hard to find anyone who may complain about the movie.

It's a much watch for everyone looking to watch an entertaining thriller in Hindi.

He swiftly slides into the role of a commoner and keeps on mind boggling you with his performance.

Do watch this movies for its engaging screenplay, powerful script and good performances.

Its simply breathtaking.

Well the first thriller in Bollywood which is simply mind blowing.

some scenes are really good and can give you a thrilling experience .

spot on direction,even if the ending was predictable it leaves u with a feeling wow!!

Original writer Jeetu Joseph and adaptation writer Upendra Sidhaye work caters fresh and engaging script.

The 50 minute second half, which is also the most engaging minutes for any Bollywood film this year, steals the show and keeps us on the edge of our seats as we are smothered by a series of twists.

A movie, i would say perfectly plotted, equally supported by superb characters, mind blowing acting and best direction taking the ace actions till the last moment.

Drishyam (2015)One of the most intriguing thriller I have ever watched in Bollywood.

Mind Blowing!!

So you cannot even in your wildest dream expect this movie to be entertaining in a traditional way.

Watch it for one the best engaging screenplay, powerful script, great direction n brilliant performances...!! ****A MUST WATCH ****

The movie is unpredictable - at least to the general viewers.

Those intense eyes, innocent expressions, scary scenes and some emotional scenes as if this movie made for his acting only.

Its been a long time since I have been on the edge of my seat watching a movie.

Other actors were equally compelling especially the little kid and after watching the movie for 163 mins I never felt bored or tired even for a minute.

Had the first part been more crisp and more like the fast paced second half, Drishyam would have been a super shiny 5 star rated movie from me.

A very slow start which suddenly picks pace and becomes so thrilling and exciting that you wonder what brought you to the edge of your seat.

Just an Suspenseful movie .

The story was gripping and intense.

Using a fresh backdrop and a local feel it has got its impressive moments that obviously come in the final hour when the proceedings become high paced, intense and brutal too with police interrogation crossing all its extreme limits at the orders of its own IG.

Drishyam is an intense story of an average middle class family caught into a "legally wrong morally right" act from which they have to escape any which way.

It was the most engaging film I have come across in the past few years.

The essence of the movie is that due to some unexpected turn of events, a normal middle-class family gets itself involved in the missing case of the son of Senior Police Officers.

Unmissable, Strong , Thrilling .

'Drishyam' is about a family's fight after an unexpected crime is committed & the series of twist & turns that follow.

Second half is breath taking, movie goes in normal slow pace and whenever you feel the criminal is going to get caught, it has a twist to it.

There are intense, nail biting moments with the viewers intrigued with the suspense of how the actors are going to cover the crime that they have committed.

Nisikant truly amazes me with showing how good he can control intense scenes.

Apparently this movie is a faithful remake of another Indian film with the very same title, which I find intriguing in one respect.

Lovely, breathtaking shots of Goa's rain-fed mountains , rivers and coastlines adds to the allure of this movie, making you aware of just a hint of eeriness behind all that tranquility; as if tranquility itself is a mirage- everything it is not as it seems.

'Drishyam' Synopsis: Desperate measures are taken by a man who tries to save his family from the dark side of the law, after they commit an unexpected crime.

These moments were very slow.

How the family weathers the storm that ensues during the violent investigation forms the rest of the story leading to an unexpected & shocking climax.

Engaging, gripping, entertaining and emotionally charged up!

Last but not the least, watch it for the most unexpected ending ever!

The movie is super entertaining and comes off as a new genre.

Intense,engaging,sharp and an intelligent thriller.

Believe me if you want to watch meaningful cinema this is worth watching ,Even if Ajay Devgn gets National award for this wont be shocking for me .

A suspense drama with a nail-biting finish, Drishyam(Visual) holds the viewer by the eyeballs till its' engaging climax The story is about a school dropout, Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay Devgn) who runs a cable video business in a small village in Goa and is quite content in life with wife Nandini (Shriya) and two daughters.

Drishyam will keep you on the edge of your seat with amazing twist and turns.

Worth watching.

We see manifolds of thrillers with immensely gripping stories come and go every year, such that with time we as avid Bollywood viewers had become really good at finding loopholes, glitches in scripts.

Starts as a usual movie after it takes an unexpected turn.

Still the story and screenplay will keep you on the edge of your seat till the end.

Ajay Devgn once again proves that why is he the most intense actor of Bollywood.

We are bored watching the same love stories with remixed songs.

Nishikant Kamat is well known to direct good high intense movies and he used his skill perfectly in this venture.

The unexpected and surprising climax stole the show.

Story portrays the life of a middle class family who suffers from intense pains and sorrows just to keep themselves intact.

You realise the extraordinariness only when you see bland Devgn, not channelling anything much in the most defining scene of the movie, in the shot that explains and expiates his character.

Drishyam intrigues,lulls you into disbelief, tugs at your emotional chords and stuns you with ingenious storytelling.

Film was absolutely unpredictable and people kept wonder what to expect next.

Thrilling .

Still, despite the not so happening first hour, one might like it as a crime thriller that doesn't allow the viewers to move in its concluding hour, offering many unexpected twists and turns keeping them thoroughly engrossed.

The climax is the high point of this movie, which is absolutely unpredictable.

This is one of the most engrossing films I've seen in a long time.

It is the most thrilling movie I have seen till date.

Family Entertainer with an unexpected Climax .

Family Drama With an Exciting thrill .

First half shows good thrilling intensity that makes the viewers want more from the second half.

Anyway, still the film is remarkable for its interesting and unpredictable story.

A very interesting and intriguing story, extremely well enacted by the talented star cast.

I highly recommend it to all the good cinema lovers(here by good I mean those who have not seen Baahubali & Bajrangi Bhaiijaan and have no such itch to watch them).

It is continuously engaging and the twists will just add to the film's total value!

Drishyam is an exciting movie which keeps you at the edge of your seat.

Upendra Sidhaye's Adapted Screenplay is genuinely engaging & engrossing, especially in its winning second-hour, that also offers a fabulous culmination.

In One Word Its Best thrilling movie of 2015.

Second half story has more gripping story line.

Gripping tale of a common man going up to zenith of deception for his family.

Ajay Devgan acting is mind blowing and the child who plays innocent role is so cute and will won your heart.

There were times when better music was needed to support the gripping screenplay.

The thrill will keep you on the edge of seat.

What a brilliant, gripping, thrilling, and flawless thriller movie has he written!

I was seating on the edge of the seat in most of the parts of post interval.

Drishyam is one of the best movies that came out India in the recent times, it is gripping, intense and keeps you engaged.

She is seen in two different avatars in this movie ; a top notch, intense Police Officer and a worried, emotional mother.

Mind blowing suspense and thrill till the last minute will make you sit tight on your seats is what the biggest plus point of the movie is.

Their lives change as a twist of fate and their decision to take it on, results in a struggle that is both painful and engaging.

The whole plot is embodied with twisty, thrilling and sensational schemes and makes you sit at the edge of your seats while watching this movie.

Mind Blowing Movie......

Just mind blowing.

But things quickly start moving after the murder occurs, and reaches a thrilling climax.

Thrilling & Engrossing.

1st half builds up very nicely for the 2nd half to be a thrilling suspense.

Mind blowing movie seen in recent times, The acting is good and it is expected from veteran actors like "Taboo, Ajay Devgan"The first half of the movie is a bit slow.

After a slow first 40 min, the movie picks pace rapidly and takes us through the cat-and-mouse game played between the protagonist Vijay Salgaonkar, a film-addict of a cable operator and the IG of Goa Police, as part of the investigation into the disappearance of the latter's only son.

The intense look of Ajay Devgn is appreciable.

Drishyam is a riveting entertainer.
