The trailer of Mohanlal's much-anticipated Malayalam film Drishyam 2 dropped on the Internet on Saturday and it promises mystery, drama and suspense. The trailer was scheduled to release on Monday but the makers unveiled it early after it was reportedly leaked. In the sequel to Mohanlal's 2013 hit Drishyam, which also starred Meena, Ansiba and Esther Anil, the 60-year-old actor reprises his role as George Kutty, whose past comes back to haunt him. In the first part, George Kutty had tricked the police after his daughter (Ansiba) accidentally kills the villainous son of a cop (Asha Sharath). The trailer starts from where the first film ended. It shows George Kutty and his family trying to live normal lives after the dreadful incident. George, a fan of movies, now owns a theatre and runs it successfully.
However, his life takes a U-turn after a new Circle Inspector arrives in their town and opens the investigation into the murder of the cop's son.
Drishyam 2 is written and directed by Jeethu Joseph, who also helmed the first part. The sequel will premiere on Prime Video on February 19.
