A cheap mediocre quickie by RGV, which wrongly uses kids in an objectionable manner.
28 October 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It's a well known fact that Ram Gopal Verma doesn't really care about the success or failure of his movies. He has confessed this several times in his interviews that he just moves on when a film gets complete and starts thinking about his next without caring about its good or bad box office result. The attitude is fine till he is able to deliver quality products to his viewers and fans waiting to see each of his new directorial ventures with the same spirits. But if the final outcome of his products keeps receding like his last few projects then that is surely going to hamper his image as well as his fan following which is still hopeful of getting a new masterpiece from the maverick any next Friday.

The maestro is back with a new sequel to his earlier hit BHOOT released in 2003, but it cannot be called a sequel in the right sense since it neither takes the story further, nor is anywhere close to that well made classic appreciated by both the viewers as well as the critics. In fact BHOOT RETURNS is a very cheap kind of movie, made on a very economical budget and shot on a lower format as RGV's last release DEPARTMENT. Due to its tricky format, he very smartly avoids extreme close ups or highly flashy scenes in his shots, due to which a common viewer will not be able to guess that its not the usual format he is watching on the screen.

However here the problem increases to many folds as not only the format but the film also hasn't got any solid content which can scare or entertain the viewer in its less than two hours of duration. The story starts in the same manner like many other previous ventures where a family shifts to a new house and then starts experiencing some unusual happenings there. This time RGV also uses few references from the famous PARANORMAL ACTIVITY series movies of the west which perfectly match the lower format of the film quite easily. In the first half he mostly plays with silence and successfully delivers some scary moments through his good old unusual camera placements (perfect for 3D) and the similar kind of frightening soundtrack as used in the original. But post intermission he suddenly gets onto a speedy mode, quickly wraps up the proceeding by killing two kids and then finishes off indicating towards a part three. And due to this, as one moves out, he feels like having watched a long TV Serial episode played in the theater instead of a complete film which just seems like 'Cheating'. Performances also fail to make any kind of major impact because of this very reason despite of having some known names such as Manisha Koirala and Chakravarthy (Satya).

So in business terms, RGV might be able to recover his cost and may also make some profit selling this cheap product at various digital platforms in this cyber age. But what he has really done in BHOOT RETURNS is a sort of scam tried with his own loyal audience by making a fool of them in the theaters and giving them quite less in return of their costly multiplex tickets. Moreover here I have another major point of objection in the movie where RGV has used children killing with knife and being killed (burned) towards the end in quite a disgusting manner.

The question I want to raise here is that if the Censor and the authorities are so much concerned about showing Child Labour on the streets, Child Smoking on the screen and Exploitation of Kids in Reality Shows then how can they let innocent kids feature in such strong films based on Communal Riots, Ghosts or Brutal killings?

If Censors cannot allow a child smoking a Cigarette or even holding it in his hands on the screen then how can they let the same child hold a knife and killing someone with all blood around the body in such a cruel manner? In fact acting in such kind of sequences can have a much stronger impact on his or her 'still developing' psyche than just smoking a cigarette. Hence personally I strongly don't appreciate using kids in films dealing with these particular genres. And if the subject really demands a kid to be in it for a solid reason, then it's the duty of the director to take utmost care of those scenes in particular as they should not leave any kind of long lasting scar on the kid's psyche, staying for a longer period of time affecting his personal life.

Unfortunately, RGV doesn't take care of this important fact mentioned above in his BHOOT RETURNS and the film uses the two child actors in its climax quite harshly.

Hence you can watch it if you strictly don't miss any horror film released at regular intervals of the year. But in case you wish to see it only for RGV then you can easily give it a miss since BHOOT RETURNS is just another below average, mediocre flick by the master, which fails to reach his own high standards set in the past.
