Gang of Ghosts Review

 
Gang of Ghosts Review

After they got done exploiting the movies down south, Bollywood has turned its direction towards the east by remaking the hit Bengali film Bhooter Bhabhishyat.


Director Satish Kaushik takes up the reigns of this comic caper whose central characters are all ghosts. Sharman Joshi plays a struggling writer who narrates this story to a director which is how the film unfolds.


The plot set up consists of a deserted old mansion set in the exteriors of Mumbai which is on the verge of being razed away by a group of greedy builders. The spirits unite or to go by the film's title- gang up together, in order to save the mansion.


The characters do have an interesting backdrop played by a stellar cast. Check this out- Anumpam Kher playS a buck toothed landlord, Mahie Gill plays a yesteryear superstar, Rajpal yadav plays a chef, funnyman Saurabh Shukla plays a refugee from Bangladesh add to that we also have an army man played by Yashpal Sharma and Asrani as a taxi driver.


But the director (maybe falling under the commercial pressure) opts for badly done VFX gimmicks, dumb spoofs and uninspiring and vulgar dialogues in the hope of making a money spinner. Mahie Gill annoys with her fake accent and Jackie shroff and Chunky Pandey are wasted. Meera Chopra goes unnoticed. Basically, it is an ensemble that is wasted as it fails to make you laugh or feel for them.


Even the half hearted attempt at delivering a social message about the everlasting greed of builders fails to impress upon us and fizzles out in the onslaught of nonsensical humor.


Avoiding this flick and opting for the regional movie's DVD is a better idea. And yes, it does come with subtitles! Now, do we really need to say that it is only Slaps for this movie?
