Drishyam 2 had a fantastic weekend, earning close to Rs. 63 crore net thanks to Sunday's strong performance on single screens. As per Box Office India, in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra, there were more single screens showing sales on Sunday than the combined sales from Friday and Saturday.

The trading website further reported that it is common for single screens to follow this trend when a non-action or mass-market movie performs well at the box office, but with this movie, it's the sheer number of single screens that have made it happen. It's difficult to think of another movie that had so many single screens showing it on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In most locations, Sunday collections at single screens outperform Sunday collections at Brahmastra. For its length, Brahmastra had ordinary box office receipts on a single screen.

The Monday box office results will prove that the movie is a hit, but the real test will be how well it holds up over the next two weeks and whether it becomes a blockbuster. On day one, the movie made less money in three circuits than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, but by the weekend, all three circuits had significantly increased.

This indicates that the trend is much better than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which debuted over the weekend and had its own really strong trend. The movie is a great boost to the movie business because, contrary to popular belief, films in this genre are still more suitable for theatres' modest and mid-budget releases. The only remaining uncertainty is whether it can be done without a franchise because Drishyam 2's initial box office performance has a lot to do with the movie's brand value.

Friday: Rs. 15 crore

Saturday: Rs. 21 crore

Sunday: Rs. 26.75 crore

Total: Rs. 62.75 crore

Meanwhile, as per production figures, National Award-winning actor Ajay Devgn and director Abhishek Pathak deliver a powerful punch and demonstrate what they are capable of doing with a compelling tale to make it a mass favourite. Day 3 of Drishyam 2 gives us another very powerful number that throws off the calculations of all trade experts. The film earned Rs. 27.17 crores on its first Sunday, bringing the weekend total to Rs. 64.14 crores.
