Drishyam 2 recorded the third best opening post the pandemic behind the two event films Brahmastra and Sooryavanshi as it collected around 15 crore nett on day one. The film collected very well in North to record good numbers in Delhi NCR and East Punjab by the end of the day while Gujarat and Maharashtra was scoring very good collections from the morning.



The film had both the key areas of Mumbai / Gujarat and North on board by the evening which all goes well for a good box office run as when these are on board its practically most of India which is on board. The opening is the fourth best ever for Ajay Devgn after Singham Returns, Golmaal Again and Total Dhamaal with the first two named opening on national holidays.



The numbers are totally unexpected as it would have good if the film got into double digits the way the advance was going till Wednesday but the movement on the last day before release was extraordinary and even better than what used to be seen before the pandemic. There is no doubt that the franchise value has helped as the film in this zone should not be opening 40-50% more than the likes of Samraat Prithviraj, Shamshera and Vikram Vedha.


The advances are good for the weekend so that 50 crore nett mark looks there for the film at a minimum but there is potential to go higher. The top five openings post the pandemic for original Hindi films is as follows. So far there have been ten films to hit double digits post the pandemic and if the finals of Drishyam 2 hit 15 crore then there will 3 films above 15 crore nett.



1. Brahmastra - 30,37,00,000


2. Sooryavanshi - 26,11,00,000


3. Drishyam 2 - 15,00,00,000 apprx


4. Ram Setu - 14,84,00,000


5. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 - 13,41,00,000
