The makers of upcoming Telugu thriller Drishyam, a remake of a similarly-titled Malayalam blockbuster, are confident it will not mimic the standard formula of filmmaking and produce a new wave of cinema in the language.

"Drishyam is a new experience even for us as an attempt to break away from mimicking the standard formula, to find new ways of offering audience a completely different cinematic experience. We believe it will create a new wave in Telugu filmdom," the film's producer Suresh Babu said in a statement.

Directed by Sripriya, the film has been shot in places such as Araku Valley, Vizianagaram, Hyderabad and Kerala.
