Movie Review

Yes, Dharma gets dark this time. After URI, Vicky Kaushal is back starring in a horror movie. So, the first question is, does the movie have a scary plot?

Throughout the movie, you see Prithvi played by Vicky Kaushal, opening doors of the decks and getting across alleys. There’s a torch that takes our eyes on everything. Hovering around!

Very few dialogues and a lot of sound effects trying to raise a scary quotient of the film. The best goes missing!

Overall, you see a doll on the ship which has that particular music tone on.

Prithvi is facing depression due to the death of his wife and daughter. They passed away during a rafting adventure. Prithvi refuses to take the medicine to cure hallucinations just because he gets to feel and notice his family once again around.

Prithvi being a survey officer, tries to get the broken recording tapes recovered and yes, he gets the job done. He finds the recording made by the lady on the ship. The video recording reveals the illegal goods seabird had in-store in its secret room.

Before the twist comes in!

While he goes on the star bird again for the further investigation he falls.  (We feel that we are stronger than Prithvi)

Have you heard about possession?

Finally, he finds a way to make the possessed spirit go away. By finding the solution and chanting some mantras together along with Professor Joshi played by Ashutosh Rana, Amar’s soul finds a way to leave.

The movie ends while the grown-up Meera is figuring out how to use the fork to eat Maggi.

Bhanu Pratap Singh has made sure that the visuals remain scary. But it’s here and there and doesn’t feel well garnished at all.

Final verdict!

While you enter the theatre you might feel that once you are out you are going to be damn scared. But, after watching this movie you just don’t feel scared at all.

If you are afraid to get anywhere in the night when you watch any horror movie, in case of “Bhoot” you won’t feel that way at all.

You will go to bed and pee as you usually do in the dark. In short, you just don’t become part of this movie at all.


  • It is a good attempt by the Dharma Productions in the horror genre.
  • Just lullaby and snapping sounds keep you hooked with the movie and creates the horror feel.
  • During the second half, there comes a twist that uplifts the movie screenplay.
  • Watch Vicky play his part with total dedication.
  • The cameo played by Bhumi Pednekar is not that bad.


  • The movie doesn’t scare you but makes you laugh.
  • The Bhoot (Ghost) in the movie doesn’t appear as convincing as it should in the horror movie.
  • Bhanu Pratap Singh’s lack of experience in direction.


Festeve Mantra gives “Bhoot” – 2/5.
