DRISHYAM grossed 16.50 crore nett it its second week taking its two week total to 56.50 crore nett. The drop week on week is a little under 60% which is fair but with a poor first week it has meant the film has not done good business. It should comfortably cross 60 crore nett as despite the release of BROTHERS it has enough screen pace to add some more business.
The film is going to be best in Mumbai with business already over 22 crore nett and can finish with around 25 crore nett which means an average fare in Mumbai. But the rest of the circuits have not fared as well as Mumbai especially North with Delhi / UP doing less than 50% of Mumbai.
The second week collections are the seventh best of the year and after a low opening week, you have to be doing better in the second week. The film will be the highest Ajay Devgn grosser over the last 2-3 years outside SINGHAM RETURNS but that is no consolation.
Drishyam Verdict – BELOW AVERAGE
