Story line: Bhoothnath Returns takes Bhoothnath’s story forward. As he returns to ‘Bhoot World’ he is greeted with taunts and condemnation from other ghosts for bringing disrepute to the ghost-community for getting bullied by a kid on Earth. Post the humiliation, Bhoothnath decides to redeem himself and come back to scare a bunch of kids. Bhoothnath’s search for kids brings him to Akhrot, a slum kid who is also the only person who can see him. Together they agree to help each other and their friendship sees them get involved in a cause that is bigger than they had ever imagined. To move ahead they will need to take on one of the country’s most powerful and corrupt politician Bhau. The Lok Sabha elections are nearing and Bhau’s victory is a mere formality, or is it? In a world, where a common man is afraid of politics, will a common man’s ghost overcome his fear to stand up for what’s right and fight against injustice? Bhoothnath Returns is an entertaining tale of good against evil, weak against powerful, past against future.

My Gut Feel and comments:
Bhoothnath was directed by Vivek sharma however its sequel is directed by Nitesh Tiwari and on top of it it’s a joined venture of T-Series and B.R. Chopra banner and these two critical changes would result in differentiation of overall presentation and packaging of Bhoothnath returns as compare to its prequel Bhoothnath and I am sensing that sequel would be more engaging and entertaining in comparison to its prequel. Bhoothnath has a simplicity and very esthetic humor and it looks like both these qualities has been retained in bhoothnath returns.
I am expecting it be a family entertainer with sensible humor and above par performances from all three leads Amitabh Bachchan, Boman Irani, Parth Bhalerao.
I would give this movie 3 out of 5 stars, four days before the release.
