If its anything like the original, Satish Kaushik's 'Gang of Ghosts' is going to be a movie worth watching. An official remake of Bengali hit film 'Bhooter Bhabishyat', the film is a satire and has the Sharman Joshi, Mahie Gill and Anupam Kher playing important roles.
The film talks about a haunted house which is soon going to be demolished to construct a mall. The ghosts living inside the house, hatch a plan to stop the builders from demolishing the house as they will go homeless.
The original film, which was in Bengali, is considered one of the best comedies of recent times. Will 'Gang Of Ghosts' match up to it. Shomini Sen of IBNLive.com was inside the theatre to find that out.

5:09 PM: Why is Jackie Shroff trying to do a Sanjay Dutt from Vaastav in #GangsOfGhosts?

5:33 PM: Good actors and an otherwise good script gets lost somewhere in between. #GangOfGhosts
