  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-4
A disputed Mumbai mansion serves as refuge for its proud ex-Zamindar, a British lord from the East India Company, a yesteryear Superstar actress, a Haryanvi brigadier, an angst-ridden rocker, a spoilt townie girl, a classist Bengali intellectual and a 'gareeb' driver.

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-3
As a storyteller, Satish Kaushik has never stuck to any particular genre. In addition, he has helmed several remakes over the years, achieving varying degrees of success. His latest outing GANG OF GHOSTS is a remake as well, that of the immensely-liked and successful Bengali film

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-2
Ouch! Ideally I should have been as lazy as Kaushik and given this portion a miss. But since my team wouldn’t accept that as a valid review, I must ramble on. For a script, there is a tale which does have all the right and regular elements needed. What dampened me is the fact that

  •  Rediff -Sonil Dedhia Rating-3
Last year, a Bengali friend of mine insisted I watch the super-hit Bengali film Bhooter Bhabishyat (which released in 2012). He claimed it was completely different from any of the films I would have seen in recent times.I immediately picked up a DVD and was impressed

  •  Times of India -Meena Iyer Rating-5
Satish Kaushik's Gang of Ghosts is a remake of the Bengali social satire, Bhooter Bhabishyat (2012). So as such, the plot that comments on how land-grabbing sharks in cities like Mumbai have torn down beautiful bungalows and breathing spaces to accommodate ugly malls

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-3
No prizes for guessing that Gang of Ghosts is populated by a horde of zany denizens of the nether world. They can go where they want and do what they will. Wish we could do the same and banish them back to where they belong.These creatures are totally lost in translation

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
A remake, even if it is official, is sometimes lost in translation. ‘Bhooter Bhabhishyat’ in Bangla, directed by Anik Dutta, was original and fresh. Satish Kaushik makes of it a pastiche which is neither here nor there : not ghastly, or ghostly, enough to be interred, nor good enough to be praised,

  •  The Front Row -Anupama Chopra Rating-2
Gang of Ghosts is an exhausting and depressing experience. Depressing because this film could have been so much better. Firstly, the frame is crammed with talented actors - from Sharman Joshi and Saurabh Shukla to Mahie Gill and Parambrata Chatterjee.

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-3
A remake of an acclaimed Bengali film Bhooter BhabishyatGang of Ghosts is an attempt at social satire through the eyes of the deceased and their struggle to be able to retain their land and house in a time when every inch of property is worth a pot of gold.

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-3
This is a remake of the hit Bengali film, 'Bhooter Bhabishyat'. You see Sharman Joshi playing a struggling writer, trying to sell a story to a budding filmmaker (Parambrata Chatterjee). You also see Anupam Kher playing a high-spirited ghost. And you want to believe that this film is going to be a fun ride.

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-1
An ad film maker, location hunting for his next project arrives at a dilapidated mansion that’s been closed for years. The mansion was riled in controversies after a film shooting was stalled when an actress claimed to have seen a ghost. However, the ad filmmaker is unfazed, brushing off

  •  Book My Show -Tanaya Ramyani Rating-3
Satish Kaushik’s Gang of Ghosts is a remake of superhit Bengali film Bhooter Bhabishyat (2012). It is a perfect example of bad movie gone worse.Gang of Ghosts (GOG) starts off quite well. After a weird skeleton song and dance for title sequence, you already start feeling a little queasy on your seats.

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-3
There's ample going for Gang of Ghosts, the fact that it's an official remake of Bengali superhit comedy Bhooter Bhobishyo, a credible actor Satish Kaushik known for his impeccable comic timing at the helm of affairs and a cast filled with actors who've proved their mettle in comedy

  •  Time Out -Suprateek Chtterjee Rating-2
I have been reviewing films regularly for the past four years. In this period, I have naturally had the misfortune of sitting through some atrocious films. However, in all this time, I have never walked out of a screening before the end credits started rolling.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-6
Satish Kaushik's penchant for comedy comes full circle in GANG OF GHOSTS, his latest from the director's seat. It's light, easy, and funny, has a social message, and above all, lands a playful punch on the face of several Bollywood personalities that is hilarious in a respectful manner!

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-3
First thing first. Gang of Ghost is not b-town first ghost comedy. Mehmood's 'Bhoot Bangla' starring the magnificent R.D. Burman came way back in 1965.. remember the song 'Aao twist kare'.. well Satish Kaushik and Venus 'Gang Of Ghost' the remake of the acclaimed Bengali movie
