Bhoot Movie Review | Best Haunted Movie 2020
Bhoot movie review: Vicky Kaushal and Bollywood’s horror masala together
Artist- Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Ashutosh Rana is Bhoot, Romance, Hate, Fareb, Doll, and Church. This is enough space for a horror film. A pure horror film was awaited in Bollywood for a long time. Therefore, a lot of expectations were tied to ‘Bhoot’.
This film, based on a real incident, makes a shocking start. From the very first scene, the directors try to create an atmosphere of horror, but they falter as they go till the end.
Ashutosh Rana, who became a professor in the film, says- ‘If we want to liberate his soul, then we have to know the story behind him, only then we will be able to help him ..’ And truth be told, all the previous horror of Bollywood in mind Movies start running.
The ship Sea-Bird has come ashore on Juhu Beach in Mumbai, in which there are no humans. Tales of this ship being haunted are well known. Shipping officer Prithvi (Vicky Kaushal) goes to the boat to investigate, where he realizes that there is someone other than him on the boat. Some untoward events happen, and Earth somehow wants to know the story behind those events. (Bhoot Movie Review)
After losing her wife (Bhumi Pednekar) and daughter in an accident, Prithvi is living in an unbeatable sense, but this ship gives him a purpose. He is joined by a professor Joshi (Ashutosh Rana). The entire film revolves around the story of a soul trapped in a ship.
Vicky Kaushal has done an excellent job in Prithvi’s character. The film is entirely on his shoulders, so the actor left no stone unturned. But the weak screenplay also appeared in the role of Vicky. Many of the views seem repetitive, due to which there is no difference in Viki’s body language. As a result, fear is also lacking.
The character of Professor Joshi turned Ashutosh Rana has been written with great respect. Apart from shouting mantras in the climax of the film, there is no significant scene in his hands. Bhumi Pednekar has done justice to his younger character.
Bhanu Pratap Singh writes the film. This is his first film as a director. From the very first scene of the film, the director has tried to keep the shadow of fear. He has also been successful till the first half. At the height at which the film reaches the interval, it slips down in the second half.
This two-hour film seems to belong because there is repetition in many scenes. At the same time, an attempt has been made to add too much spice. Reaching Climax, the film puts all the secrets in front, so Climax has become extremely cold.
Apart from the screenplay. The horror film has three strongest sides – background score, makeup, and graphics… Bhoot has been useful in all three departments. Pushkar Singh’s cinematography gives the visuals a height. But Bodhaditya Banerjee’s editing is average. Many scenes have been left in the middle. You expect it to be paired with a view next, but no nothing happens. It isn’t delightful.
The film has only one song – Channa Way .. whose music is given by Akhil Sachdeva. It is a romantic song but does not interrupt anywhere in the movie. Slightly moves the story forward. At the same time, the background score given by Ketan Sodha is good.
See or not see
If you like films of this genre, ‘Bhoot’ can be seen in the theatre once. Almost the entire movie is shot on a ship, so the thrill of watching it on the big screen is different. 3.5 stars to ‘Bhoot‘ from Filmbeast. (Bhoot Movie Review)
