It is turning out to be a great year for movies everywhere, and Drishyam 2 has proven itself worthy of being classified in this same rank. The numbers it has been generating are those that were once only seen in movies released around holidays – even though this movie came out at the height of summer, its audience was primarily made up of people who wanted to see what it was about, not just from advertising alone.
There are several reasons for the sudden uptick in profits. Drishyam 2 opened well at Rs. 15.38 crores but on Saturday people went crazy and more money came pouring in to get their hands on tickets amounting to Rs. 21.59 crores, making for a significant profit margin for both the producer and distributors of this movie because the film’s earnings were only going up from there due to strong word of mouth reviews from those who watched it already. As such, the current total stands at Rs. 36.97 crores – an unimaginable number compared to where they started just two days ago!
However, Uunchai has been able to find some success in its own small way. On Saturday, the film leapt from 1.31 crore rupees yesterday (Friday) to 2.42 crores. If it survives Drishyam 2 and keeps people coming back for more, even though this isn’t just on weekends or only during the weekends; it will need to improve its daily average from here on out. The task is not yet complete – next Sunday too will need to leap up higher than today (Saturday). So far the film has accumulated 20.75 crore rupees total
