Both Special 26 and Drishyam were thriller movies and starred two famous actors, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn respectively. And the two films were medium budget films and performed on similar grounds at the box office. The former was based on a true story and gained the advantage of it. Drishyam was not promoted well, still, it earned a very good amount at the box office. Here is the detailed analysis of their performance:
Special 26 and Drishyam started their journey at the box office on a decent note. In their first weekend, Drishyam earned little more than Special 26 and also ended its first week with more money than the former. However, in the second week, Special 26 gained momentum and earned over Rs. 18 crores.
If we talk about the lifetime collection of both the movies, then was only a difference of Rs. 1 crores. But in the overseas market, Drishyam performed better than Special 26 hence earned more money at the worldwide box office.
Now, Ajay Devgn’s new movie Raid is coming on the theater screens this Friday. So it would be interesting to see how it performs in comparison to these two films.
