And with a haunting sense of worry which by no means leaves them. A collection of sudden occasions flip the Salgaonkars’ lives the wrong way up when a reality threatens to vary the whole lot.
Even the help Vijay obtained from his neighborhood seven years in the past, begins to dwindle because the plot unfolds, they usually start to query if he really dedicated the crime. The movie gathers up steam when the police investigation led by Inspector Common of Police Tarun Ahlawat (Akshaye Khanna), and Sameer’s (who’s unintended loss of life in Drishyam shaped of the crux of each the movies) mom and former IG Meera (Tabu), swings into motion.

Whereas the primary one undoubtedly had a sure novelty to it, the sequel stands robust too, it intrigues and entertains. The story right here stays unpredictable for probably the most half, nonetheless, among the setups appear contrived and a few conditions too far-fetched. Having mentioned that, making a sequel to a really profitable first half whereby many of the characters are the identical is kind of a problem.
Amitabh Bhattacharya’s tune Sahi Galat that comes with the credit and the title observe is upbeat. Saath Hum Rahein is sluggish however completely filmed to seize the bond household share.
