Rohit Khilnani’s review.
Bhoothnath reaches Dharavi, Asia’s biggest slum, and here he happens to meet Akhrot, a (street-smart) kid from the slums, and soon they become friends. With Akhrot’s help, Bhoothnath is able to earn some money. Akhrot soon lands the two of them in a soup after agreeing to help a criminal-turned-politician called Baau.
To set matters straight, Akhrot tells Bhoothnath to stand against Baau in elections. The stage is set for commonn folk versus a corrupt politician.
Corruption remain the movie’s main focus. Parth Bhalerao has done a commendable job as Akhrot. Like Amitabh Bachchan rightly said, seeing these kids act makes you realise you still have a lot to learn. Boman Irani plays a wonderfully corrupt Baau, and needless to say his acting in the film was wonderful.
Bhoothnath Returns is a one-time family watch, and the perfect film for school kids on vacation. Meaning ‘Party Toh Banti Hai’.
