Movie got bombed at the boxoffice.. main reason is the old type of story.. Kushi got released in Telugu and tamil 10 years back. At that time.. the way dealing the story is new , thats the main reason for the movie success.
In these 10 years lot of movies came in kannada,telugu,tamil with similar concept so these type of movies are not at all new to present generation. That's the main cause of the movie failure in kannada.
Music is good and ganesh is good but the treatment and content looks boring and finally movie became dud at boxoffice.
