Drishyam 2’s domestic box office collection skyrocketed on day two of its release. Drishyam 2 grossed Rs. 21.59 crore in its first two days of release. This brings the film’s total box office receipts to 36.97 crores. Ajay Devgn, Tabu, Ishita Dutta, Akshaye Khanna, Rajat Kapoor, and Shriya Saran feature in Abhishek Pathak’s Drishyam 2.
The plot revolves around a family of four whose lives are turned upside down when their older daughter is involved in an unfortunate incident. Drishyam 2 continues the narrative of Ajay Salgoankar and his family, including wife Nandini (Shriya Saran) and daughters Anju (Ishita Dutta) and Anu (Ishita Dutta) (Mrunal Jadhav).
According to the Hindustan Times review: Although Drishyam 2 justifies the seven-year gap with tale progression and character aging, certain elements don’t seem to have changed at all. For example, Martin’s canteen was supposed to get a makeover. And it become a relatively posh cafeteria after all these years. Another disconcerting aspect is that even the largest departments, such as Forensics, do not have CCTVs installed. Consider that Vijay now has access to multiple CCTV footage from inside his theatre office as well as from the road outside the police station.
Bhushan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak, Abhishek Pathak, and Krishan Kumar are producing Drishyam 2. Viacom18 Studios, T-Series, and Panorama Studios are producing the film. The Hindi film franchise is based on the Malayalam film series Drishyam (2013) and its 2021 sequel directed by Mohanlal.
Guts for Sequel (Drishyam 2)
It takes a lot of guts and entrepreneurial spirit for a Hindi actor to enter the mighty Mohanlal’s Malayalam zone because his fans seem to believe that no one can improve on what he has done, especially with the Drishyam franchise, which has acquired cult status since its inception in 2015.
But, God bless his enterprising heart, Ajay Devgn has done it again. Drishyam, which debuted in 2015, competed head-to-head with the original. Now, how does the sequel stack up against the original?
Purists, those who believe that all remakes, regardless of their genuine caliber, should be avoided, may frown on Drishyam 2, which is akin to falling into a pavlovian aversion to the remake without reasoning or reasonable research.
However, Drishyam 2 works. As a remake and as a standalone project. Thanks to Devgn, who gives one of his most languorously lucid performances in recent memory. He presents Vijay Salgoankar as a spouse and father who thinks well ahead of his opponents. But he allows them to believe otherwise.
