It was an extraordinary Saturday for Drishyam 2 as the collections almost jumped double from Friday to Saturday. This was the case for Bhediya also, though on lower levels, and here Drishyam 2 is doing that by playing on much higher numbers and that too in the third week. The film is trending like no other Hindi film has in 2022 (battling The Kashmir Files) and with an open week ahead of it, this could go anywhere.
While on Friday the film had collected Rs. 4.45 crores, Saturday numbers were really huge at Rs. 8.45 crores. Leave aside absolute or relative numbers, pre-pandemic or post-pandemic, competition or no competition, mass or class belt, or first or third week, such kind of collections would be truly admirable anytime and that’s what making Drishyam 2 the blockbuster that it is. The film is clearly the first choice of audiences all over and that’s reflecting in the way the box office has been exceeding expectations from the very first day of release.
So far, the film has collected Rs. 176.38 crores and while Rs. 185 crores would be comfortably surpassed today, it could well find itself in Rs. 187-188 crores range as well. Now, an entry into the Rs. 200 Crore Club before close of third week would be a cakewalk for the Abhishek Pathak directed suspense drama.
