Drishyam has collected around 7.5-7.75 crore nett in first day (Friday) at box office. Film has also collected around 50-60 lakh nett in paid previews on Thursday. Thus, film cumulative total is around 8-8.35 crore nett range. Collection on day one is decent considering the film genre specially. However collections could have been more considering film released in wide screen of 2200+ all across India. Anyways start is decent and if film post big jump on Saturday and Sunday, then a respectable first weekend is on cards.
Drishyam opened to low occupancy in Morning shows. Even occupancy in Noon and Afternoon shows are moderate range. Film picked up from Evening onward till Night shows, which eventually help it to post decent first day total at box office. If film register good jump through the weekend, then there is every chance of going past 25 crore nett in first 3 days and may be even close to 30 crore nett is possible.
