‘Bhooter Bhobishyot’ was one of the sharpest Bengali comedies I had seen, and going by the trailer of its Hindi remake ‘Gang of Ghosts’, I don’t think the Bollywood derivative will be able to retain the same sharpness as its regional parent. Starring Sharman Joshi, Anupam Kher, Mahie Gill, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Meera Chopra, Chunky Pandey, Jackie Shroff, Rajpal Yadav and others, this flick which is being called ‘India’s first ghost comedy’ has been helmed by Satish Kaushik.

Going by the trailer, I won’t be counting much on this film’s Bhutiyapanti. The folks have to pull off something seriously interesting in here to retain the Bengali movie-goer’s attention. The film releases on on 21st Mar 2014. Watch its official theatrical trailer here:
