Storyline

Bhoothnath Returns takes Bhoothnath's story forward. As he returns to 'Bhoot World' he is greeted with taunts and condemnation from other ghosts for bringing disrepute to the ghost-community for getting bullied by a kid on Earth. Post the humiliation, Bhoothnath decides to redeem himself and come back to scare a bunch of kids. Bhoothnath's search for kids brings him to Akhrot, a slum kid who is also the only person who can see him. Together they agree to help each other and their friendship sees them get involved in a cause that is bigger than they had ever imagined. To move ahead they will need to take on one of the country's most powerful and corrupt politician Bhau. The Lok Sabha elections are nearing and Bhau's victory is a mere formality, or is it? In a world, where a common man is afraid of politics, will a common man's ghost overcome his fear to stand up for what's right and fight against injustice? Bhoothnath Returns is an entertaining tale of good against evil, weak against ... Written by Anonymous

Bhoothnath works on three merits - terrific performance, right intention and fantastic direction
12 April 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Few actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor have evolved themselves over the years with time and age like . I admire them since they can any play character with ease and utmost sincerity. Bhoothnath Returns comes in the right election time when half of the Indians will go out voting by next week.

After being humiliated and joked around from his ghost community, Bhoothnath must return to earth to scare any kid and earn back the respect from his fellow mates. Surprisingly, he again befriends a street- smart kid and the pair together stands up for election after learning about the corruption and evil plan of local builder cum politician Bhau.

Co-director of Chillar Party, Nitesh Tiwari chooses the right subject and theme with a noble message. As the continuation from the first part Bhoothnath (2008), Bhoothnath Returns begins with few hilarious scenes and follows the theme of election with right intention. The second half loses the steam and inclusion of songs hinders the momentum of the film. Fortunately, the film picks up the pace and climax ends with aplomb. Music is decent but could have been better. Cinematography and art direction is just about okay. The film belongs to three basic characters -Bhoothnath played brilliantly by the legend Amitabh Bachchan, Akhrot played superbly by Parth Bhalerao and Bhau essayed by supremely talented Boman Irani.

Bhoothnath works on three merits - terrific performance, right intention and fantastic direction. Good 3/5
