Tips’ Ramaiya Vastavaiya creates a splash at the box office
Tips’ Ramaiya Vastavaiya released 19th July, only to be received with a warm response and encouraging feedback, having garnered over 15.30 crores at the box office over the weekend.
Says acclaimed critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh , “Ramaiya Vastavaiya has performed very well at mass-dominated circuits/single screens mainly. The business at several centres witnessed an upward trend. Collected approx Rs 15.30 cr nett in its opening weekend. Breakup:- Fri 4.10 cr, Sat 4.70 cr, Sun *est* 6.50 cr”
Adds trade guru Komal Nahata, “ Ramaiya Vastavaiya is very entertaining, strong emotional undercurrent, hit music and lovely twists and turns. Collections at Roopbani Purnea for Ramaiya Vastavaiya match YJHD for the weekend….no difference at all…huge for a Ramzaan weekend”.
Girish Kumar, too received rave reviews as he made his Bollywood debut with the romantic-entertainer – Says Taran Adarsh, “RAMAIYA VASTAVAIYA is the launch vehicle for Girish Kumar and the actor gets the opportunity to sing, dance, fight, emote, display varied emotions… he’s photogenic and goes through the rigmarole with confidence. Whether it his introductory sequence [surfing in the sea] or breaking into a dance, whether he’s exposing his chiseled physique or wearing desi outfits, whether he’s asked to look innocent or flirtatious, Girish gets it right.”
Says Madhureetha Mukherjee, “Debutant Girish makes a splash of an entry (surfing in blue seas, ‘Bond’ babes take a bow), and dances with flair.”
Adds Komal Nahata, “Girish Kumar makes a confident debut as hero. His character becomes endearing quite early on in the film.
