Yet another day, yet again very good footfalls. Drishyam 2 has been exceeding expectations ever since its release and things have stayed on to be quite good for sixth day in a row, what with Rs. 9.50 crores* more coming in. There are just 10 Hindi films in 2022 that have crossed the Rs. 10 crores mark on the day of release and here Drishyam 2 is doing just a little lesser than that on the sixth day. In fact the only Bollywood films which did better on the sixth day are Brahmastra (Rs. 10.50 crores) and The Kashmir Files (Rs. 19.05 crores), so that pretty much tells the tale.
The Ajay Devgn starrer has collected Rs. 95.99 crores* so far and as you read this, the film would be gearing up for its Rs. 100 Crore Club celebrations. There is a lot more that the film will achieve though as the indications are that it’s still just a mid-way for it. It will certainly go past the lifetime numbers of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 (Rs. 185.92 crores) and what would be closely observed is the journey of this Abhishek Pathak directed film from there to the Rs. 200 Crore Club.
Meanwhile, Uunchai will close its run around the Rs. 30 crores mark and hence there won’t be any major milestones achieved. The Sooraj Barjatya directed film has been staying low during the weekdays and that was evident on Wednesday as well when Rs. 0.60 crores* came in. Really, the film needed to do better in order to get into the above average zone but for now it would stay in the average to below average zone, considering low collections in the second week. That said, with Rs. 25.52 crores* in its kitty so far, what it has done is keep its head over the water, which is decent enough as well since 90% of the releases in 2022 haven’t managed even that.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
