About Drushyam

Drushyam (English: Visual) is a 2014 Indian Telugu-language thriller film directed by Sripriya and jointly produced by Daggubati Suresh Babu and Rajkumar Sethupathi. It is a remake of Jeethu Joseph's 2013 Malayalam film Drishyam and features Daggubati Venkatesh, Meena and Nadhiya reprising the respective roles played by Mohanlal, Meena and Asha Sarath in the original. The film tells the story of Rambabu, a middle-class cable TV operator, and his family. They come under suspicion when Varun, the son of the Inspector-general of police (IG), goes missing soon after harassing Rambabu's daughter. The rest of the film reveals how Varun disappeared and what Rambabu does to keep his family from going to prison. The production work of Drushyam was undertaken by Suresh Balaje and George Pious. Music for the film was composed by Sharreth. The cinematography was led by S. Gopal Reddy and the editing by Marthand K. Venkatesh. Principal photography commenced on 8 March 2014 and lasted three months. It was shot primarily in Kerala, similar to the original, and also filmed at Araku, Simhachalam, Vizianagaram and Hyderabad. The post-production phase ended after one month. Drushyam released on 11 July 2014 to positive feedback from critics. It went on to become one of the highest-grossing Telugu films of the year, collecting a worldwide distributor share of ₹200 million.
