Bhootnath Returns: Movie delivers a good message effortlessly and funnily!

1067th BLOG POST -->>

       
  I didn't watch Bhootnath till date except for few bits when it was telecast on television several times after its TV Premiere. I am not much interested towards horror movie or the movie about aatma, bhoot, chudail, raakshas etc. Therefore when I came to know that Bhootnath Returns is on floor, I was very doubtful if the audience will even have a look towards it. Well, same happened according to the collections seen of first two days. Amitabh Bachchan is not a selling property at Box Office anymore and his presence in a movie isn't a guarantee of audience turn-over. He himself said in an interview that I and Abhishek can not give more than 10 crores profit to a film on our shoulders. That's whats happening with the fate of Bhootnath Returns.

            I have seen the movie and I can say that it isn't terrible the way I expected it to be. Writer and Director have managed to make the movie sensible in terms of the topic discussed and the way it has been done. There are many places where it seems as if Director have forgot one character or the another but still the movie holds you well. There isn't much entertainment moment but whatever few it has, it does the trick to make you see forward to what's happening. Few sub plots are such that you will feel its a Rajkumar Hirani's movie going on. Only if the movie would have been 1.5 times more funny and humorous, it could have been one of the memorable movies of this year.

           The child artist who plays Akhrot is the only savior in the first half. His accent, his confidence and his tapori language does the work for the audience. He cleanly overcomes Amitabh Bachchan's presence in the first half. But later on, director forgets him between Amitabh Bachchan and his fight with the opponents for the welfare of the country. As soon as Boman Irani enters the screen, movie gets really interesting otherwise it seemed as if its been dragged purposely. From the point of view of kids and children, this is one of the riot entertainment but considering adult audience, the movie is 60% eligible to be watched. 

           Boman Irani's entry is funny and his dialogues throughout the movie is entertaining and catchy. Amitabh Bachchan roams in the whole movie as if its the set of KBC- in his blazer and elegance. Seems as if he is playing himself in the movie and astonished to see how common men lives. :| In the first half, listening to Akhrot's principles and philosophies are wonderful and something that interests the audience. Anurag Kashyap's cameo is funnier whereas Shahrukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor also play their cameos perfectly. Amitabh Bachchan finally becomes alive in the second half with his excellent acting, dialogues, expressions and power. It is then that you realize there's Amitabh Bachchan, the actor in the movie. The message that movie tries to deliver is commendable and the way it is done is also genuine. This movie is surely watchable if you have a kid with you. Some scenes you will enjoy, rest you will enjoy seeing your kid enjoying at it. :-)

 Thanks.

From now on, Indian ghosts from heavens would be raising a toast and cheering, "Party Toh Banti Hai!"

I liked the character played by the young artist in the film. The last half an hour is very gripping. Honey Singh's song in the last was never needed. Complete waste! By the time it came on screen, half of the viewers had already left the theater.
