Why do national media continue to ignore Drishyam's original Malayalam version?

Production company Panorama Studios has announced that it has tied up with Gulfstream Pictures and Jot Films for the Hollywood remake of the Drishyam franchise. Panorama Studios had already acquired the international remake rights of the first and second parts of Drishyam from Aashirvad Cinemas. Amidst the glee over an Indian movie getting a rare Hollywood remake, some of the national media in India is still hell-bent on not accepting the fact that the movie Drishyam is a Malayalam creation.

After the news of the Hollywood remake went viral, many national media started putting images of actor Ajay Devgn’s ‘Drishyam’ movie and even continued adulating the actor for Hollywood acquiring the rights. Drishyam's remake in Hindi went on to become one of the finest blockbusters in Bollywood history and there is no denying that. However, the origin of the movie is from Malayalam, so it is pertinent to give credit to the authentic Malayalam version more than the remake when Hollywood comes knocking the doors.

Many social media comments are also criticizing the disregard the national media have for Drishyam’s original Malayalam version. Many have asked the media portals to set right their news in clear terms for the global audience to learn more about the movie and its original creation.

The national media’s continuous distorting of news regarding ‘Drishyam’ has now made many believe that the movie is a Bollywood creation.
