Had she not been subjected to extraordinary circumstances, this young girl might have ended up as your "girl next door". However, fate has its course. She aspired to become a popular person. And so she did, but not while she was alive. To be honest (as ever), I didn't quite like the whole story. The story of a young girl growing up didn't appeal to me, and most of us already know what Holocaust victims usually went through. The part showing how inconvenient the life of a group was during the hiding was a bit interesting, but not enough to make this TV movie a memorable experience. Ben Kingsley's performance is the most impressive among the bunch of actors. Taking all the aspects into consideration, I find it only fair to rate it 1.5/5.

However, when my brother decided to watch it, I couldn't help keeping him company. As it turns it, it wasn't a disastrous decision on my part as the movie was a bearable fare. (Knowing that there won't be much story, only action for most of the part, might have helped.) The fight for survival is neither engaging nor boring. The sequences involving Marcus and the kid are nicely done, though.
Nothing great here, but if you've fallen short of options, feel free to take this risk at your own cost.

Stereotypical it may be, but nothing incredible about this Hulk. The same plot devices one must have seen in quite a lot of superhero movies already, with hardly any new/appealing elements to watch out for. All the same, kids MAY find it enjoyable.
1/10 for a couple of credible moments.

With enough witty dialogues & a better scripting, "OMG: Oh My God!" could have been a highly entertaining ride. The movie starts interestingly, but fails to maintain the tempo. The entertainment level keeps depleting as the movie unfolds. The ending is disastrous. Akshay Kumar's character is created lousily, and his weak performance only makes it worse. Paresh Rawal is okay, but Mithun and Mahesh Manjrekar act as showpieces. Keep your expectations lower than reasonable, and you may be satisfied with a few laughs the movie manages to deliver. My expectations were a bit higher than 2.5/5 herein.
*Add-it (on August 25, 2014) --> Better try "The Man Who Sued God" IF you're not so fond of Bollywood movies. Otherwise, OMG is not that bad a remake. Of course, as said earlier, it could have been a bit more entertaining.

Everything else about it has been wiped out from the memory, thanks to the ongoing health hazards. Anyways, I'm glad that I went for it because it was an engaging fare (the fast forward button may have helped the cause, though).
Riteish Deshmukh wasn't incredible in a negative role, but he isn't used to playing this kind of role. Surprisingly, KRK's performance was quite impressive. Maybe because his character didn't essentially require him to put in any extra efforts, and all he needed was to act himself!! Sidharth Malhotra & Shraddha Kapoor give a top notch performance.
While the dialogues are effective, the jokes used are quite worn out. Wished they'd used some better ones. Apart from that, nothing much to complain about. Enjoy and have fun.

However, the movie is fictionalized, and here Mr. Mehta has been portrayed in quite a positive light. It's a simple story with average performances. Go for it if you find the subject interesting. 6.5/10.

This Bhoot/Bhooth should have rather avoided human contact for the time being, and waited for a better representation to return.
