Trivia

Director Priyadarshan worked as the second-unit director of the original movie Manichithrathazhu (1993), when he decided to remake the story in Hindi. Akshay Kumar was his first choice to play the male lead role, as was classical dance-trained Malayalam actor Vineet for the role of Shashidhar. See more »

Goofs

During the scene when Aditya (Akshay Kumar) is talking to Shri Yagyaprakashji Bharti (Vikram Gokhale) in the courtyard, we can see a crew member dressed in a black tee and jeans in the background. He makes his way out of the frame, cautiously, so as to not be seen, but obviously fails to do so. See more »

Quotes

Shri Yagyaprakashji Bharti: [pointing at Aditya] I've seen him somewhere before.
Batukshankar Upadhyay: Then you might have seen him in a mental asylum.

A good thriller
27 August 2009 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

Despite the fact that the movie was promoted as a comedy, the film is a physcological thriller with a few comic situations. Priyadarshan does a good job as a director. In comparison with his previous films, he takes a leap as a director by making a movie with a genre of its own.

In my opinion, Bhool Bhulaiyaa is way better than the original movie, Manichithrathazhu. Probably because of the technicians have improved since then.

Akshay Kumar does his usual comic act, and he's funny here as well. Shiny Ahuja hams, but is good in parts. The last 45 minutes belong to none other than, Vidya Balan. Throughout the movie she doesn't have much to do but the steals the show with her superb performance towards the climax. Ameesha Patel looks ethereal and is effective in a small yet important role. The supporting cast are first-rate, especially Paresh Rawal, Rasika Joshi and Manoj Joshi.

The songs are good; Labon Ko is easy on the ears.

All in all, Bhool Bhulaiyaa is a well-executed movie, though lengthy in parts! Time-pass!
