The show that I went for was cancelled because there weren't enough tickets sold. I watched Ragini MMS 2 instead. We will have reactions to Gang of Ghosts from twitter and other reviewers here, by Monday.

So-So by Martin D'Souza, ...But for me, apart from Sharman and Mahie, it is Vijay Verma who stands out as the dead musician. This guy has terrific talent. ... full review

So-So by Ankita Chaurasia, Star Blockbuster ...A film like this with caricaturish characters would have been a good family watch only if it wasn’t for those few expletives that don’t add up any humour to the script but rather gross you out. But slapstick definitely gets the cash registers jingling and Gang Of Ghosts might do the trick.... full review

So-So by Meena Iyer, Times of India ...In the case of GOG, the only ones who seem to have had a blast are the actors - Mahie, Anupam, Saurabh and Jackie, all of who ham... full review

So-So by IANS, ZEENEWS.COM ...Without the advantage of a credulous script, these other-worldly characters don`t stand a ghost of a chance.... full review

Thumbs down by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks ... this is a perfect example of how poor writing can make a complete mess of a fine, novel plot and also a film which clearly indicates that a remake should not be made just as a scene to scene translation of the original taking the easy path... full review

Thumbs down by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...GANG OF GHOSTS offers laughs, but only in bits and spurts. It's disheartening to watch a wonderful concept go awry! ... full review

Thumbs down by Kritika Ajmani, Bollywood Life ...Gangs Of Ghosts can be certainly avoided. Its sad to see the work of such talented actors go waste.... full review

Thumbs down Daily Bhaskar ...Only if you have nothing to do this weekend, and you are adamant on watching a film at the theater. We don’t recommend Gang of Ghosts.... full review

Thumbs down by Sweta Kaushal, Hindustan Times ...You can certainly miss this Bhootiyapanthi, as they call it in the film.... full review

Thumbs down by Shomini Sen, IBN Live ...Gang Of Ghosts' is a typical example of how some films should remain untouched and not be remade because it loses its authentic flavour... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...The stinging satirical tone of the original was its hook. This ‘Bhootiyapanti’, as it is called in the film, keeps looking for one.... full review

Thumbs down by Shubha Shetty-saha, MiD DAY ...Give this film a miss. Get an Ouija board and visit your favourite ghost instead. That will definitely be far more entertaining... full review

Thumbs down by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA ...Well, except for few comical moments and the plot line there is not dum in this bad remake of a good film. It's a huge opportunity lost for all the Hindi film viewers and thus would recommend good cinema lovers to watch the original 'Bhooter Bhabishyat' instead of wasting their valuable time and money over this bland film known as 'Gang Of Ghosts'. The movie, which should have wooed you, ends up booing you.... full review

Thumbs down by Rahul Desai, Mumbai Mirror ...I wouldn't go as far as declaring this imitation to be the best form of flattery, but Gang Of Ghosts does arouse enough curiosity to make you want to watch the real deal. Excuse me while I procure a DVD. ... full review

Thumbs down by Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV ...Gang of Ghosts has none. What’s worse is that it is not even frothy enough to be “the great Indian entertaining potboiler” that it wants to be. ... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now ...On the whole, Gang of Ghosts tries too hard to be funny and fit the bill of a commercial caper. Sadly, it falls short by miles... full review

Thumbs down by Sonil Dedhia, Rediff ...But, if you really want some laughs, go with the original,Bhooter Bhabishyat. Gang Of Ghosts belongs to the category of bad remakes.... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...With none of the charm of the original, the film will certainly infuriate those who’ve seen it.... full review
