Petty Wonders: Why Did Drishyam Become a Blockbuster Hit With Such Low Promotion?

In 2015, not one movie has survived the mad rush for audience attention, without spending a few crores on promoting the movie before release. Surprisingly, Drishyam came on a very special note to end this race. Developed on a sturdy storyline filled with daily life cliches, the movie succeeded on the basis of the following factors.

1. Ajay Devgan’s Eyes.

They say that a great actor needs all but a single look, and a thousand emotions can be conveyed in a single second.The movie opens with his eyes on full screen, and if you can’t get captivated by those deep, powerful eyes, then maybe you’re dead from the inside.

2. This Best Worst Cop Ever.

We all hated this police officer, but we also loved his acting. Simply superb! It is characters like these that add a bitter-sweet feeling to our movie watching experience, making the whole exercise an event of utmost satisfaction.

3. Because Goa!

Who doesn’t like some good old natural beauty? The movie is full of beautiful scenery from Goa. We first got hooked to Goa in the marvellous world of Dil Chahta Hai. After that, it has been a non-stop romance with Indian Cinema. And we love it in all of them!

Guess where I’m planning my next vacation to??

4. No Item Numbers. Only Sarees.

Very few movies nowadays have no item songs, and it is such a relief to see this movie without the distraction of unnecessarily loud music and scantly clad girls. Instead, we have Shriya Saran in sarees throughout. And she looks breathtaking in every scene!There’s that something special in the way Indian sarees accentuates the female form Рit is both attractive yet respectful at the same time.

5. Honest Performances From The Child Actors.

In an industry full of people who don’t know the ‘a’ of ‘acting’ it was heartwarming to see this kids perform with 100% believability. Never for once we feel they were acting. It was so natural. And they steal the show, which is saying something for a movie that has Ajay Devgan and Tabu!

6. Moral Ambiguity:

Most cinemas in India have totally good heroes going after totally bad villains. That doesn’t happen in real life. People aren’t 100% good or bad. They are a combination of the two. By the end of Drishyam, you’re left wondering who was right and who was wrong? And to be honest, you cannot pick either side with surety. Such realistic representation of life should become the norm for more movies.
