Claps For: Excellent delivery of a social message in a movie while delivering on entertainment.
Slaps For: Guest appearances were unnecessary and cry desperation on the director's part.
Popcorn Refill: Some
The Story: Bhoothnath(Amitabh Bachchan) returns to earth to scare a few kids to regain respect in the ghost world.
He meets Akhrot (Parth Bhalerao) who he befriends instead of scaring. The story revolves around Bhoothnath contesting the elections when he realizes the need for systemic change.
Performance: All the actors have performed extremely well. The chemistry between Amitabh Bachchan & Parth Bhalerao is exceptional. Boman Irani shines as a ruthless corrupt politician. Anurag Kashyap seems a little uncomfortable playing himself.
On a musical note: The soundtrack of the film is decent but average. 'Sahib' sung by Rituraj is an exception and is soulful. The rest of the songs are commercial and light. The end credit Yo Yo Honey Singh song 'Party With The Bhoothnath' is an unrequired appendage.
Combo on Offer: Bhoothnath Returns is a socio political satire revolving around corruption. It manages to deliver the message without being preachy. The story is linear and a light watch. Certain instances could have been avoided without affecting the film. A complete family entertainer, it is money well spent.
Our Verdict: Overall we give Bhoothnath Returns Claps for being one of the best Bollywood sequels in recent times.
