"Ramaiya Vastavaiya" got average reviews and was not expected to do rather well competing with "D - Day" and "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", both critically acclaimed films.
But still defying logic film rode on entertainment value and small town appeal, film managed average numbers and edged out "D - Day". Film collected 3.45 cr nett on day one which is average but considering competition it is good.
Film was below average in metros and multiplexes but was good in Gujarat, CI, CP and Bihar. Like "D - Day", this film was also affected by "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" badly in Delhi, NCR and Punjab. Film should grow over weekend as word of mouth among single screen audience is good.
