Bollywood has been going through a lean phase since the start of 2022 as the majority of big-ticket releases failed to make a noticeable impact at the box office. If South films are excluded, the Hindi market has plummeted big time throughout this year. Many star-studded Bollywood films which were expected to generate huge revenues at the ticket windows left no trace due to poor reception from moviegoers.
Against this disappointing backdrop, Ajay Devgn’s latest thriller Drishyam 2 has packed a punch at the Bollywood box office with a stupendous start this Friday. This film took a solid opening with 15 Crore plus net on its first day which is one of the biggest starters of 2022. Despite the lack of any big promotions, the film received strong footfalls in all territories of North India.
As the reviews and word of mouth are very encouraging, there is a significant rise in the collections compared to the first day. As per trade estimates, Drishyam 2 is on track to breach the 20 Crore net mark on the second day. The film is all set to net around 60 crores by the end of the first weekend and set the tone for a superb run. If the film manages to hold well on weekdays and the second weekend, there are good chances that it will emerge as a blockbuster.
Needless to say, Drishyam 2 is set to revive Bollywood which has been in a dormant stage due to a lack of proper hits in recent times.
