When we get into Drishyam 2: The Resumption, we realise the world of Georgekutty (Mohanlal) is different. He has moved up in life. This cable operator has now built a theatre, which has its weekend box-office hopes pinned on the new Mammootty movie. (Heh!) But there are other changes, and Rani (Meena) keeps saying as much. She says Georgekutty has changed in the six years since the events of the first film. She says their younger daughter (Anu, played by Esther Anil) has changed. Most importantly, she has changed. She says she has lost her peace of mind ever since Georgekutty decided to turn producer and make his own movie. But really, her peace of mind was shattered that night six years ago, and it has stayed shattered. She can no longer sleep alone. And the townspeople gossip about them, something Rani doesn’t yet know, because she doesn’t get out much except to go to church.
