Drishyam--103-DRISHYAM MALAYALAM MOVIE FIRST LOOK POSTERS-CS (18).jpg"The cleverness is in the understanding the potential of a film. 'Drishyam' is a film that doesn't underestimate the intelligence of the audience. It's a combined effort of how a director and his actors work in sync professionally," Balachander said.

"My salute to Mohanlal. This film is his personal triumph and I don't think there are too many actors with his caliber today. 'Drishyam' should be celebrated as a victory of Indian cinema, not just Malayalam alone," he added.

Directed by Jeethu Joseph, "Drishyam" also starring Meena has emerged as the highest grossing Malayalam film so far.

Reportedly made on a budget of Rs.5 crore, the film has already minted over Rs.20 crore and continues to run to packed houses in Kerala as well as Tamil Nadu.
