Well, the reviews from the top critics are out and going by them it seems like Ajay Devgn’s Drishyam is an intense thriller which keeps you engage till the end. Let’s read what the critics have to say on the movie.
Drishyam Review By Saibal Chaterjee from NDTV: Drishyam, a thriller that eschews the standard trappings of the suspense genre, is replete with surprises. That, however, is true only if you haven’t seen any of the four southern versions of the film, especially the recently released one in Tamil – Papanasam, starring Kamal Haasan in full flight.Drishyam is gripping in parts but is anything but an unblemished humdinger.

Drishyam Review by Subha Shetty Saha from Midday: The second half keeps you hooked as the story gets you caught up in an emotional whirlpool along with the Salgaonkar family. What works against the film is the loud Ramsay-like horror film background music and mediocre performances by most other actors, except Rajat Kapoor and Prathamesh Parab. But do watch this film for Ajay and Tabu’s performances and of course, that one-in-a-million story. Content, after all, is the key.

Drishyam Review by Archita Kashyap from Koimoi: For an engaging battle of wits, watch this film. The second half, thankfully a direct adaptation of the original, also draws you in as audience, making you think of right and wrong, justice & fairness. Also do catch it if you are an Ajay Devgn or Tabu fan. Otherwise, for those who like watching quality films on crime & passion, I would rather leave the decision to you.

Drishyam Review by Meera Iyer from TOI: A suspense drama with a nail-biting finish, Drishyam holds the viewer by the eyeballs till its’ engaging climax. Ajay, who is the prey here, shines in his role of the protective father. While his family definitely needed to be cast in a more discerning fashion, half a star in this review is reserved for Tabu, who is outstanding as his predator

Drishyam Review by Rohit Vats from Hindustan Times: Drishyam works because it doesn’t talk about a hero but a common man. Drishyam works because you feel for every character in the film. Drishyam works because it leaves you stunned. Drishyam works because it keeps you glued to your seat till the last moment. Drishyam works because it’s a finely crafted suspense thriller after a really long time. Drishyam works because you thought Indian filmmakers can’t make good thrillers. Drishyam works because it shows two different India. Drishyam works because visuals can be deceptive
