At this pace, the movie will easily reach the 100-crore mark in its first week of release. In terms of competition, ‘Drishyam 2’ has been running ahead of ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ and ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ up until this point in time.
‘Drishyam 2’ has been directed by Abhishek Pathak and is the remake of the 2021 Malayalam film of the same name besides also being a sequel to the crime thriller ‘Drishyam’ which was released in 2015. The movie hit the cinema halls on November 18.
With Ajay Devgn and Tabu, this suspense film has all the makings of a blockbuster. According to ABPLive review of the movie, “Drishyam 2 offers a good closure to both the Salgaonkar and Deshmukh family with a reiteration of what Vijay Salgaonkar had said in the first part about his family. ‘Drishyam 2’ does not follow its characters around but achieves even greater effect by connecting plot points and not reiterating the film (directly or indirectly) in a scene.”
