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

Unfortunately, there's only disappointment in store here. With a generous heart, 1/10 for the promise it makes to be a chilling affair, but fails to tend to, thankfully, without trying too hard!!

EDIT: Apparently, I don't re-rate a movie every now and again. But I gotta take this exceptional step for an exceptional flick. Previous rating was 3/5 with the comment typed above this paragraph. However, now I'd like to change it to follows:
On my first viewing, I didn't like it much, but the feelings turned in its favor after watching it thereafter. In fact, when I first watched it, I found it just a bit better than any mediocre movie. Maybe my mood influenced my ability to enjoy it. Happens with me less often than not. However, now I watch it every once in a while (although the viewing habit has changed from every other day to every once in a while, the impression remains) for chilling entertainment.
So now the rating rises to 4.5/5. Excellent dialogues, incredible acting, and, of course, an outstanding execution deserve that in the least. Haven't had a change of heart for the final part as yet.

Tries too hard to make one laugh, only to fall flat on its face nearly every time. Well, at least for me. The actors were just as embarrassing as its characters. Its length was its only saving grace.

Sure they must have distorted the facts to turn it in Disney's favor, thereby making it inspirational!! While maybe a bit dramatic, the transformation of Emma's character seemed quite unrealistic. The story may work better for children, I guess. For me, even Emma and Hanks' efforts/performances proved short for Saving Mr. Banks.
