Uber-popular Malayalam crime thriller 'Drishyam' is all set to get a Korean remake. Indian production banner Panorama Studios and Anthology Studios from South Korea have announced a partnership for the remake of the 'Drishyam' franchise in Korea. For the unversed, the original 'Drishyam' starring Mohanlal has already been made in four different languages. The announcement was made at the India Pavilion during the ongoing Cannes Film Festival 2023 by the studios with their respective heads Kumar Mangat Pathak and Jay Choi.

“I’m excited that the Drishyam franchise is being made in Korean, a first for a Hindi film. This will not only increase its reach outside India but will also put Hindi cinema on the global map. All these years, we have been inspired by Korean fare, and now they have found a muse in one of our films. What can be a bigger achievement for the Indian film fraternity,” Pathak said in a statement.

“We are thrilled to have an opportunity to remake a massively successful Hindi film with a touch of originality from Korean cinema. And the remake has greater significance as the first major co-production between Korea and India. Through our partnership, we will be able to bring the best of both Indian and Korean cinema and make a meaningful remake that is as excellent as the original,” Choi said.

'Drishyam' had originally released in 2013 and the Mohanlal-starrer followed George Kutty and his family who end up coming under suspicion when the son of IG Geeta Prabhakar goes missing.

The movie was written and directed by Jeethu Joseph.

The success of this film led to remakes and sequels in four Indian languages -- Drishya (2014) in Kannada, Drushyam (2014) in Telugu, Papanasam (2015) in Tamil, and Drishyam (2015) in Hindi.
