Bollywood can finally heave a sigh of relief. After months and months of disappointment where Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was the last non-event film to do well and Brahmastra was the biggest ever due to an event release, finally, there is a non-event non-holiday release that broke Gone are the hurdles and did really well.
The beauty of Drishyam 2 collections is that even if it was during pre-pandemic, it would have been considered pretty good as hardly any film was scoring a century in the first week. However, now this has happened with Drishyam 2, which has hit the ceiling 104.66 crores Coming in the first week.
Here is the list of top-10 week one collection of Bollywood movies in 2022:
Brahmastra (Hindi) – 156 crores
Scene 2 – 104.66 crores
The Kashmir Files – 97.30 crores
Maze 2 – 92.63 crores
Gangubai Kathiawadi – 68.93 crores
Vikram Vedha – 58.57 crores
Ram Setu – 58.23 crores
Emperor Prithviraj – 55.05 crores
Live forever 53.74 crores
Lal Singh Chadha – 50.58 crores
There are only two films that have managed to enter 100 crores Club in the first week itself and these are Brahmastra and Drishyam 2. The Kashmir Files and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 though came close and while the former scored a huge double century, the latter missed by a whisker. Now it has to be seen where Drishyam 2 reaches. It should go past Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’s lifetime score as it has the edge, though its entry into the 200 crore club will be better depending on how it competes with Bhediya in the second week.
