Bhootnath Returns is not as witty or humorous as it appears from its trailers. A film that could be entertaining all the way had it not lost its plot.

'Bhoothnath Returns' is a supernatural comedy probably targeted at the kids starts off well but as it progresses moves right over kids heads and slips from the laps of adults ending up as a sad preachy political drama. The previous suffered from 'Baghban'

Bhootnath is worth watching for its feel good political message, and Parth Bhalerao, who plays Akhrot, the street-smart Dharavi kid who befriends a ghost, writes Anupama Chopra.

Sir.. Not Again.. hoping to grain on supernatural comedy field the much awaited Big B starer 'Bhoothnath Returns' comes with some humour smarts giving an impression of a classic comedy vehicle but as the reel moves on the movie fails to remove its previous stains of getting too dramatic, preachy and farfetched. Bhoothnath suffered from 'Bhaghban'isation only to return as a new age T.N. Seshan in this 2014 election.

Story:An interesting tale, the story begins with Bhoothnath who returns to heaven but is ridiculed by the other ghosts for bringing disrespect to their community. Apparently, a kid makes fun of Bhoothnath. So, he decides to go back to earth and redeem him

When Bhoothnath released back in 2008 it did not make much of a mark. It was declared an average grosser at the box office but the kids lapped it up in the subsequent television viewings. So when the sequel was announced we expected more of the same buffo
