The film has managed an opening weekend collection of Rs 30.03 crore, film distributor Kiaara praised the movie, "Seriously! #Drishyam is the Best Suspense Thriller Ever Made in the History of Bollywood. Plz Go & Watch Good Cinema."
Trade expert Taran Adarsh tweeted the first two day collections, "TERRIFIC word of mouth translates into SUPER growth in biz on Day 2. #Drishyam Thu pre + Fri 8.05 cr, Sat 9.40 cr. Total: ₹ 17.45 cr." On Sunday the movie collected Rs 12.13 crores.
Having released in over 2365 screens, the film is doing decent business. It was predicted that Bajrangi Bhaijaan may affect the film's collection and even some terror attack scares in cities owing to Yakub Memon's death but thanks to good word of mouth promotion the film has managed to do well.
Like how Ajay Devgn said, the film may not hit the Rs 100 crore mark but the movie is an entertaining thriller which every cinema goer has to see.
