A Quality Movie!
4 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

The movie is about a man who becomes Ghost(Bhooth) after his death. This Ghost is so attached to his house that he doesn't let anyone live in it. One day, comes a little boy with his mother and father to live in the house. While the father is a sailor who goes away on his duty, the mother and the boy live in the house. One night this Ghost tries to haunt the kid(Banku), but Banku doesn't fear him, rather thinks of the ghost as an Angel. Banku and Ghost become friends, and their adventures are recorded in the further story. The movie generally received good reviews, and was a hit at the Box-Office, yet I feel that it was not given applauds it deserved.

The story is well executed, and pace of the movie is even. Acting wise, Amitabh Bachchan comes again with a spot on performance, I didn't know that a Ghost character can be played so naturally. The small boy, does his part high great confidence and comes up with great performance. Other cast have less time in the movie, but they do their parts neatly. No songs, a plus point. Direction is good. Background score is good.

Go for this movie, this won't disappoint you.
