  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

Vipul Shah’s Barnali Ray Shukla directed, `Kucch Luv Jaisaa`, chose the last Friday before `Ready` to release and bore the brunt of it as that is one of the main reasons for the slow start of the well made film. The movie has opened to a dull response of 5-20 percent but given the inherent merits of the Rahul Bose-Shifaali Shah starrer, the makers can still hope for a turnround which, even though it looks difficult is not impossible.
