The makers of Bhoot: The Haunted Ship have been promoting the film as first of its kind horror movie in Bollywood. Well, we won’t say that the movie is first of its kind Horror film, but well, it goes a bit beyond than what we have been seeing on the big screen in the name of Horror. It takes us back to those days when there were good horror films being made in Bollywood like Bhoot (RGV) and Raaz.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
An isolated ship one day comes to one of beaches of Mumbai. The ship looks scary and we know that there’s something wrong here. A couple decides to get naughty inside the ship, but are killed. Now, Prithvi (Vicky Kaushal) is one board to investigate about ship and we are in for some edge of the seat moments.
The screenplay of the film is quite good. It has multiple jump scares and if you love watching horror film this will be a treat for you. The movie stands out as it is not like the horror films we have been watching from the past few years. What doesn’t impress us much is the climax. The makers come up with the old formula of burning dead body, protagonist chanting mantras and all. But thanks to the twist in the climax we are left impressed.
It’s an out and out Vicky Kaushal film. The actor has given his best and once again proves that he is one of the most versatile actors we have in the industry. Bhumi Pednekar is good in her small role.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
There’s only one song in the film and that comes in the starting credits. But what does wonders is the background score. The background score creates the perfect intense atmosphere for the film.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Bhoot: The Haunted Ship stands out because it at least tries to offer us something new. With Vicky Kaushal at his best, this one deserves a watch.
