Drishyam 2 fared very well on its first Monday, with collections in the double digits. The film has now collected 76 crores after earning 11.87 crores on Monday. Abhishek Pathak directed the film, which stars Ajay Devgn, Akshaye Khanna, Tabu, Shriya Saran, Ishita Dutta, and Saurabh Shukla.
Sharing the day-wise collections of the film on Twitter, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, "#Drishyam2 continues its victorious run… Trends exceptionally well on Day 4 [Mon]… Hits double digits... Crosses 75 cr… Racing towards 100 cr… #D2 is not slowing down soon… Fri 15.38 cr, Sat 21.59 cr, Sun 27.17 cr, Mon 11.87 cr. Total: 76.01 cr. #India biz."

The first part was directed by Nishikant Kamat who died of liver cirrhosis in 2020. Taking up the responsibility of Drishyam 2, director Abhishek Pathak told PTI in an interview that the team spent months on the screenplay that would cater to a larger audience. He collaborated with Aamil Keeyan Khan for the screenplay. "We wanted someone who can understand what I want to achieve with this film. Writing is the most important thing and we need to spend the most amount of time on it. Once the writing was done, we discussed with the team including DOP about the treatment, mood, and energy of the shot,” he said.
It is a remake of 2021 Malayalam film of the same name, featuring Mohanlal in the lead role, and the sequel to the 2015 film Drishyam. Abhishek said, "people will find something new in the Hindi version".
