Bhoot Movie 2020 Review:
While the film’s runtime is short, the pace seems exhausting because most of the scenes are concluded abruptly, leaving you waiting for the big reveal.

It has enough ump scares. Full review
What does a ship have to do with ghosts? If you consider a 2011 news-item, about a cargo ship that drifted and ran aground on Mumbai beach, you’ll know exactly where the idea for this film came from. Full review
Bhoot: The Haunted Ship is several notches up your usual horror fanfare but doesn’t go all the way. Won’t make you spill the popcorn but makes for credible entertainment while munching the snack. Full review
A couple is trapped on an abandoned ship lying static on a beach. When an abandoned and dilapidated ship called the Sea Bird mysteriously runs aground on the shores of Mumbai, one man is assigned to close the case. But the sinister stories surrounding the ship may have more truth to them than he previously thought.
The first part of Bhoot, which is obviously a planned horror series with multiple instalments, is a decent film all round. But if you’re looking to get scared or creeped out, it will disappoint. The film only employs formulaic jump-scare tactics used in most films of this genre. What works for it is the emotional depth accorded to Prithvi (Vicky Kaushal) and the grief that ties him to the ship and its traumatic past. The acting is extremely good. Though the film’s visuals and horror elements aren’t particularly novel (hence, not frightening), Prithvi’s fear is quite palpable thanks to some brilliant work by Vicky Kaushal.
