13 October 2012 7:51 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Directed by Ram Gopal Verma and written by Ravi Shankar, Bhoot Returns is sequel to the 2003 thriller Bhoot. Bhoot had also been an Rgv directorial and starred Urmila Matondkar in an outstanding performance. Bhoot Returns, however does not live up to the original and is unfortunately and evidently, a failed attempt.
