Being a complete horror film junkie, I feel disappointed when most horror films by mainstream Bollywood rarely is able to live up to its hype. I remember ‘Raaz’ being a pathbreaker back then and most horror films that followed were more or less formulaic.
However, when the trailer for ‘Bhoot: The Haunted Ship’ hit the internet, it was difficult not to be excited about it because, of course, it’s a Vicky Kaushal starrer and also a Dharma production! From what was learnt from the trailer, Prithvi, the protagonist of the film played by Vicky Kaushal, comes across a stranded ship. It’s dark and dingy inside, so Vicky gets hold of a torch and begins to explore. And…hell breaks loose!
The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Ashutosh Rana.
Watch the trailer here:
So, if you’re planning to catch the horror flick, ‘Bhoot: The Haunted Ship’ over the weekend, here are some tweets you should check out first!

Vicky Kaushal's Bhoot: The haunted Ship is easily one of the worst anticipated movies this year
Terrific DOP and background Score bogged down by a Contrived Screenplay moving at a Snail's pace with VK's acting chops not enough to save this Sinking Ship#BhootReview pic.twitter.com/hQ4khLxFre

@vickykaushal09 's #BhootPartOneTheHauntedShip is underwhelming. The movie boasted enough potential but ends up only relying on jump scares. Vicky does well, the film is cliched and unintentionally funny. #BhootReview #BhootMidnightScreening

#BhootTheHauntedShip is very ordinary film. Nothing to shout about. Weak & incoherent writing. A few scary & interesting moments in the 1st half but becomes clichéd in the 2nd half. Climax too is not impactful! #VickyKaushal is the only saving grace.⭐⭐#BhootReview #Bhoot

#Bhoot has the right blend of chills and thrills in the first half, but as is the case with most horror films, doesn't succeed in getting a closure in its second half. The premise had the potential on paper, but somehow got lost while transforming on screen.
⭐⭐.5 (2.5 stars)

Seems like the ‘josh’ isn’t as high for this one!
