Storyline

The grand old mansions of Kolkata are being razed to the ground to make way for swanky condominiums, malls and multiplexes. Some of these dilapidated 'disputed' buildings were haunted by ghosts who had taken shelter there over centuries. They were evicted and are homeless today. There is no 'rehabilitation package' on offer. Politicians, media, intellectuals, civic society - no one gives a damn. After all , ghosts can't vote. Chowdhuribari is one such heritage property which is rented out for film shoots to facilitate its maintenance. A heroine faints during a shooting, allegedly sighting a ghost in a mirror. A filmmaker on a reconnaissance trip to the building gets to hear of a spooky story revolving around the house. But is it just a tall tale or is there a twist in the 'tail'? Song & dance, drama, romance, action and even an item number, BHOOTER BHOBISHYOT has all the Filmi Masala as well as some food for thought. Written by Anonymous

Excellent Movie
19 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

Excellent movie,really appreciable,The topic which the director / writer has chosen is very real and very much substantial in the current scenario of kolkata. But the story line / scrip, which have been chosen to express the same in front of audience is truly remarkable. Anything related to ghost brings a certain kind of chilling effect / horror within us. But may be this is the first time I am watching a movie where Ghost have been used as a element of comedy.

Best of luck to the whole cast and crew and expecting more and more this kind of movies from the director.

It reminds us the famous movie "Hirak Rajar Deshe" by Late Satyajit Roy.

Again congrats and best of luck.
