Drishyam 2, starring Ajay Devgn and Tabu, had the second biggest opening for Bollywood in 2022. The film, which was released on Friday, earned Rs. 15.38 crore on its first day at the domestic box office. Drishyam 2 also outperformed Akshay Kumar’s Ram Setu on its first day at the box office.
Drishyam 2 was one of the most anticipated films of the year. It is a remake of the Malayalam film of the same name from 2021, as well as a sequel to Drishyam, a film that not only garnered critical attention but also did well at the box office in 2015.
Drishyam 2 also features Ishita Dutta, Akshay Khanna, Rajat Kapoor and Shriya Saran under the direction of Abhishek Pathak. The mysterious tale of Vijay Salgaonkar and his family appears in Drishyam 2, which stars Ajay Devgn. In the film, Tabu returned to the role of Inspector General of Police, Mira Deshmukh. The movie was released on November 18.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared a poster of the film on Twitter. “Drishyam 2 revitalizes an industry that was going through a turbulent phase after a string of flops… gets off to a fast start on day one – second biggest start of 2022 [outright Hindi films] * 50 crore plus weekend is on the cards. Friday 15.38 crore. India Biz (Business),” he tweeted.
In the popular 2015 movie Drishyam, Ajay’s character Vijay tricks everyone into believing that his family has taken a vacation, which was actually a brilliant scheme to stop his family from accusing them of murder. Ajay returned for the sequel, continuing in Vijay’s place. The journey the story unfolds makes the audience wonder if there is a way for him to escape this time. The first part, Drishyam, was a re-imagining of the Malayalam film of the same title from 2013, which starred Mohanlal in the lead role.
