Nitesh Tiwari basking in the glory of Bhoothnath Returns

22 April 2014 3:44 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Nitesh Tiwari who co-directed Chillar Party with Vikas Bahl has just delivered his first success as an independent director. And the shy filmmaker is in a jubilant mood, "We were working on a concept that wasn't time-tested. We could've lost the audience. But they've accepted the film so warmly. It feels good." Bhoothnath Returns, currently showing to packed houses not only has a very talented child actor Parth Bhalerao at the helm, the child is acknowledged as the hero of the show by none other than his formidable co-star Amitabh Bachchan himself! Tiwari who earlier worked with a bevy of child actors in Chillar Party feels connecting with children without patronizing them is of utmost importance. "It would've been suicidal to bring Parth into the project unless I was sure about him. God forbid if after shooting I realized he wasn't right for the role. It would've been impossible to replace him. »

Bhootnath Returns Movie Review

12 April 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Continuing with the trend of original concepts coming out this year, Nitesh Tiwari’s Bhootnath Returns has a very relevant theme which will touch a lot of people’s chords.

Bhootnath (Amitabh Bachchan) has just returned to Bhootworld after his stint on earth. Waiting to be reborn again he finds that he has become a butt of everyone’s jokes after failing to scare a little kid (Banku from Bhootnath). Vowing to get his respect back, Bhootnath returns to earth to scare a couple of kids. That’s when he meets Akhrot (an amazing Parth Bhalerao), a pocket sized Dharavi kid with giant heart. When the dirty politician Bhau (Boman Irani) looks set to win the elections yet again, Akhrot decides that the best opposition candidate would be Bhootnath, who – like he says – is a good guy and cannot be killed! From here starts the faceoff between the good guy/bhoot and the bad guy. »
