Tusshar scores over Vivek

Vivek Oberoi, one of the few successful newcomers of 2002, had his first release of 2003 in Dum.

A regular masala film, it was very different from his earlier Company, Road and Saathiya, and was expected to firmly establish the actor.

Kucch To Hai hoped to recreate the Raaz magic by following the horror genre. The slick promos and an 'original' script were promising, but the film failed to deliver.

Note: Films are ranked on the basis of their performance at the box-office every week. Though a film may be declared a flop, it may have performed better than other films that particular week.
