Director Jeethu Joseph's Drishyam 2 starring Mohanlal was one of the most anticipated films of this year. Instead of opting for a theatrical release, Drishyam 2 released on Amazon Prime Video on February 19. Recently, SS Rajamouli watched Drishyam 2 and decided to share his thoughts about the film. He sent a personal text message to Jeethu Joseph and opened up about what he liked in the film. Jeethu Joseph shared the screenshot and wrote, "Thank you Rajamouli sir... I am honoured...you made my day (sic)."
Rajamouli's message read, "Hi Jeethu, This is Rajamouli. Film director..Watched Drishyam 2, few days back...It lingered so much in my thoughts that I watched. Went back to watch Drishyam first part (I only watched Drishyam in Telugu when it released). I must say the direction, screenplay, editing and acting - every craft is truly amazing... But the writing is really something else. It is a world standard. The first part itself is a masterpiece. For the second one, to come up with a storyline that seamlessly merges with the first, with the same gripping narration is nothing short of brilliance. Hoping to see many more masterpieces from you."
