By Grace Cyril: After Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor's Brahmastra, Ajay Devgn's Drishyam 2 has brought back hope at the box office. While many Bollywood biggies are struggling to mint money, Drishyam 2 is breaking records even before completing a week in the theatres. Drishyam 2 also had an outstanding weekend opening of more than Rs 60 crore at the domestic box office collection. Drishyam 2, also starring Tabu and Akshaye Khanna, hit the silver screens on November 18.



The Abhishek Pathak-directorial took a bumper opening at the ticket window on November 18. Drishyam 2 earned Rs 15.38 crore at the domestic box office on Day 1. Gradually its collection kept increasing. According to trade reports, Drishyam 2 collected in double-digits on Tuesday, November 22. It's single-day collection was Rs 10.65 crore. Hence, Drishyam 2 managed to mint a total of Rs 86.66 crore at the domestic ticket windows. Meanwhile, Drishyam 2 had an overall 18.27 per cent Hindi occupancy on Tuesday. At this rate, the film will easily cross the Rs 100-crore club in the first week itself.

Meanwhile, Drishyam 2 surpassed the opening weekend collections of hit Bollywood films like Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Gangubai Kathiawadi and The Kashmir Files. It also has the potential of becoming one of the highest-grossing Hindi films of 2022.


Drishyam is an emotional thriller that deals with the story of a cable operator Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay), whose life revolves around cinema and his family; wife Nandini (Shriya Saran) and daughters Anju and Anu. Tabu plays the role of IG Meera Deshmukh in the film. In Drishyam, Ajay played Vijay Salgaonkar who protects his family at all costs after his daughter accidentally kills a boy.

After disposing of the boy's body, Vijay removes all traces of proof and then takes a family trip to Panaji. They visit an Ashram, watch a film, and eat at a restaurant, creating their alibis. Drishyam is the Hindi remake of hit Malayalam flick of the same name, which was helmed by National-Award-winning director Nishikant Kamat. Drishyam 2, directed by Abhishek Pathak, follows the story after that.
