Box Office: 'Ramaiya Vastavaiya' edges out 'D-Day' in opening weekend

Box Office: 'Ramaiya Vastavaiya' edges out 'D-Day' in opening weekend
Fair to middling. That’s the best way to describe the performance of the three new releases at the box office, namely Ramaiya Vastavaiya, D-Day and Ship Of Theseus.

Of the three, Ramaiya Vastavaiya has performed better with good footfalls at single screen theatres and mass belt areas. Though the film has no big stars and rides solely on the charm of debutant Girish Kumar and Shruti Haasan, the response hasn’t been disheartening. The film made Rs. 15.30 crore net in its first weekend and is likely to retain its hold at single screens in the days ahead.

On the other hand, D-Day, despite some rave reviews, failed to really take off. The film, starring Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Huma Qureshi and Shruti Haasan, got off to a slow start on Friday and picked up on Saturday and Sunday to register a first weekend collection of over Rs. 13.50 crore net, which is not really up to the mark.

The third release, director Anand Gandhi’s thought-provoking, lyrical ode to self-rediscovery called Ship Of Theseus made over Rs. 25 lakh over the weekend. The film had a very limited release even in metropolises.

The clear winner of the weekend was Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, which despite running for a week, raked in more moolah during its second weekend than the new releases. The film, starring Farhan Akhtar as the eponymous athlete, has sprinted past the Rs. 70 crore mark.

The coming week sees the release of small budget films like Issaq, Nasha, and Luv U Soniyo.
