Producers Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak’s Panorama Studios International on Tuesday announced it has acquired the Hindi remake rights of the recently released Malayalam film Drishyam 2 – The Resumption. Panorama Studios took to Twitter on Tuesday to share the news with fans.

Headlined by superstar Mohanlal, Drishyam 2 earned acclaim upon its release on Amazon Prime Video in February. The film is a sequel to the 2013 hit crime drama Drishyam, directed by Jeethu Joseph.The first installment traced the struggle of Georgekutty, played by Mohanlal, and his family after they come under suspicion when the son of Inspector General of Police Geetha Prabhakar gets killed.

Its 2015 Hindi adaptation, also backed by Pathak, was led by Ajay Devgn portraying Mohanlal’s role and Tabu playing the Inspector General of Police. Directed by the late Nishikant Kamat, the remake was a massive hit.Pathak said the team is now driven to do justice to the second part. “With the huge success of Drishyam 2, the story needs to be told with passion and commitment and we as producers are committed to that,” the filmmaker said in a statement.

Helmed by Jeethu Joseph, Drishyam 2 saw Mohanal reprise the role of Georgekutty, who transitions from being a cable TV service provider to an aspiring film producer, but the ghost of the past still haunts the family as they try to come to terms with the crime.

The story of Drishyam 2 resonated with people and I’m so glad that Panorama Studios will make it reach to a wider audience with the Hindi remake. I’m looking forward to it (sic),” Jeethu Joseph said. Producer Antony Perumbavoor, who had backed the original and Drishyam 2, said he was certain that Panorama Studios International will “justify the film” with the remake.

Drishyam 2 also stars Meena, Siddique, Murali Gopy, Ansiba, Esther and Saikumar in pivotal roles.
