It's quite a riot of fun that a 60-plus ghost and a seven-something kid manage to kick up with their escapades in a spooky haveli on the outskirts of Goa.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
“I only act,” is the traditional way-out of an uncomfortable question. So be it. Sure do act. But how about doing it the way you used to? With flair and conviction, not with ham and bacon.

Much has been said about Bhoothnath right from the pairing of Amitabh and Shahrukh after a long time and the potential that the debutant director Vivek Sharma carries.

Overall, Bhoothnath is a solid entertainer that loses its steam towards the end. It will still appeal to people of all ages. The movie is worth it mainly to see the chemistry between Amitabh Bachchan and Aman Siddiqui. Those in fear of it being a kiddie f
