WHAT? Drishyam 2 Music Composer Devi Sri Prasad Reveals He Hasn’t Watched The Original Mohanlal Starrer Sequel! Says, ‘I Haven’t Actually Watched It Except For Hindi’
Music composer Devi Sri Parasad, also known as DSP, is all set to mesmerise the audience with his music for Ajay Devgn-Tabu starrer Drishyam 2. This is the musician’s first Hindi movie, under Panorama Music, with many more projects that are yet to be announced.

During an interaction with the Hindustan Times, Prasad opened up about composing music for Drishyam 2, two months before the release. He also revealed why he hasn’t watched the original movie yet. DSP explained that he didn't have time to watch the original Mohanlal-starrer sequel, which was released earlier this year, because he was too busy at work. The movie was released in February 2022 in Malayalam, Telugu and Kannada. Not watching the movie turned out to be an advantage for him, as he created the music for the film with a fresh perspective.

He told the Hindustan Times, "Generally, I watch all the films. But when Drishyam 2 came out in other languages I was tied to work and travelling a lot. I couldn’t get time to watch them. By the time I was approached for Drishyam 2 in Hindi. So, I haven’t actually watched it except for Hindi. I thought ‘okay, let me keep my perspective fresh.’"


He went on to share that he watched the footage of the Hindi version before he started composing the music for it and fell in love with the movie. He fell in love with the movie and commended the actors for their performances as well as Abhishek Pathak for his direction. He also revealed that he had very little time to score the music.

Talking about the music for the suspense thriller, DSP shared that he was excited to collaborate with Amitabh Bhattacharya and Usha Uthup on the title track of the film. He shared, "We started composing the title track while working in a studio in Chennai. Abhishek sir and Amitabh sir had come there. It just happened very fatafat (quickly) on-the-go. We wanted a deep vocal. I predominately used the cello as the core instrument. After I composed the tune, everybody liked it instantly. And, then Amitabh began writing. I could imagine this song in the voice of the legendary Usha Uthup. Everyone sank into the idea and I always wanted to collaborate with her. She has a very unique voice"

Directed by Abhishek Pathak, Drishyam 2 stars Ajay Devgn, Tabu, Akshaye Khanna, Shriya Saran and Ishita Dutta is pivotal roles. The movie, a sequel to the 2015 flick, follows the journey of Vijay Salgaonkar and his family seven years after they were accused of murdering the son of the Inspector General of Goa Police, Meera Deshmukh.
