Ghostbusters has been one of the most advertised English films in the recent past here. Although I had not seen any trailer of it, I had seen posters of it whenever I went to see a Hindi film during the last fortnight or so. It intrigued me and I went to see it along with my usual company.
I was disappointed. It is supposed to be a comedy, but the comic element falls flat in the film as it is too contrived and artificial. The special effects somewhat offset the disappointment in the comedy department and the direction and acting leaves much to be desired.
I would give it a two star rating out of five and I would not recommend it to anyone unless s/he is interested in seeing good special effects.

Thank you for the link. I had not seen the original.
The original was excellent. Haven’t seen a favorable review of the current version.

a remake is seldom as good as or better than the original.
and the original of this one was good! even without the special effects they have now.

I had not seen the original, but will now see it.
Going by the image you show I would say this is the latest remake. The original was quite good I thought & worth watching.
Yes, it is the latest. I had not seen the original and will see it anon.
Never saw the original, and thanks for the warning about this one.

I also enjoyed the original, and had little interest in this one. Thanks for saving us from seeing it!
My pleasure Kaitlin.
