Anthology Studios in South Korea and Panorama Studios, a prestigious Indian production company, have announced their exciting alliance for the eagerly awaited Korean version of the well-known Drishyam series.
Kumar Mangat Pathak and Jay Choi, the respective heads of Panorama Studios and Anthology Studios, made a big statement at the famous India Pavilion during the current Cannes Film Festival to express their vision.
When Varun Prabhakar, the son of the renowned IG Geetha Prabhakar, inexplicably disappears, Georgekutty, masterfully represented by the famous Mohanlal, and his family find themselves under suspicion. This sets the stage for Drishyam, which originally began as a Malayalam criminal thriller.
This 2013 movie masterpiece, written and directed by Jeethu Joseph, was a huge hit and opened the door for four other Indian language remakes and sequels: Drishya (2014) in Kannada, Drushyam (2014) in Telugu, Papanasam (2015) in Tamil, and Drishyam (2015) in Hindi.
The Drishyam brand will now be formally recreated in the Korean language, marking an unparalleled development in the Hindi film industry.
The brilliant producer Pathak expressed his delight at the idea of introducing this outstanding film series to South Korea and extending its reach beyond of the Indian subcontinent. Pathak has obtained the rights for several languages.
“This momentous occasion, where the Drishyam franchise is embraced in the Korean language, fills me with immense joy. It not only extends the horizons of our film beyond the borders of India but also places Hindi cinema firmly on the global stage.”
He further went on to say, “We have been inspired by the captivating works of Korean cinema for years, and now they, in turn, have found their muse in one of our creations. This achievement resonates deeply within the Indian film fraternity,” Pathak exclaimed passionately, encapsulating the magnitude of this collaboration.
