The theatres are reviving and we ain't complaining. After dull years due to the pandemic and air of negativity, people are flocking to their nearby cinema halls to witness the magic of storytelling. The two films that are playing an important role in breathing air into Bollywood's lungs are Drishyam 2 and Bhediya.
Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Akshaye Khanna's Drishyam 2 is a clear blockbuster. After entering the Rs.100 crores club in just a week's time, the thriller is now racing toward the Rs.150 crores mark. On its second Sunday at the box office, Drishyam 2 collected Rs.17.23 crores (in India). The film's total collection, as of now, is Rs. 143.90 crores.
On the other hand, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon-headlined Bhediya took off to a slow start but with positive word of mouth, the film is growing. With each passing day, the creature-comedy is drawing audiences to theatres.
At the worldwide box office, Bhediya collected Rs. 12.06 crores on Friday. The film made Rs. 14.60 crores on Saturday and on Sunday, it went up to Rs. 17.01 crores.
