Like Drishyam, 5 Other Movies With Great Sequels

Team FC

Elizabeth (1998) and Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)

The sequel, released nine years later and titled Elizabeth: The Golden Age, follows the events of the first film and tells of the queen's later reign.

Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 1 and 2 (2012)

Part II picks up where part I had left off: Faisal wakes up from his ganja-induced sleep to be informed that his father, Sardar Khan , has been murdered. What will follow is a smoke-hazed journey of a reluctant hero.

Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013)

The first film charts the giddy possibilities of new love, the second film attempts to infuse the distance of space and time to see if the memory of passion endures, and the last film shows how love is, despite its rose tints and rosé bubbles, an agony at its heart.

The Godfather (1972) and The Godfather Part II (1974)

As far as sequels go, is there anything topping The Godfather part II? As Michael (Al Pacino) takes the reins as heir to the crime empire, we are taken back to the making of Don Vito Corleone, in Sicily, 1921, with Robert De Niro playing a young Marlon Brando.

Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003) and Kill Bill: Volume 2 (2004)

Come for the stylised violence set pieces, formidable antagonists and compelling backstories of the first part, (which ends with a major twist), stay for the catharsis of the second.
