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?

The loving and Caring "Bhoot" is back in town!!!!
15 April 2014 | by anyasarkar123See all my reviews

Bhootnath Returns is a political satire where the ghost (Amitabh Bachchan) takes on a corrupt and dishonest politician and changes the society by contesting the elections. Amitabh Bachchan has played the role of a ghost in the best possible manner. The kid was a surprise to me. Even Mr Bachchan has said in his interview, ""Parth, who plays the little boy in Bhoothnath Returns is a commensurate performer, a mature artist and the hero of the film. Even seasoned professionals sometimes are unable to convincingly go through the gamut of emotions that this boy has in BR. He is an exceptional young man.") and I second that. On the other hand Boman Irani as Bhau is as promising as any other actor in the film. One thing which I really liked was cinematography and graphics. The Direction, music, acting, background score are all up to the mark. If you are a true Bollywood lover and Bachchan fan, this movie is certainly for you.
