Hum Tum Aur Ghost - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Medical science and the super-natural power of seeing dead people are mixed. This would have been fine if the light vein didn’t mix so abruptly but with the overflow of sentiments. Ultimately we are left with a dissatisfactory resolution which seems unintentional.
