Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Bhoot Police has been shot brilliantly and even the story is impressive to quite some extent. The problem here lies is the presentation of the story and even the characters. There are dialogues which were presented to make us feel emotional but they were looking weird. Even, the comedy by Rajpal Yadav seems like not working here for us. Rather than making a comedy of this horror film, makers could have made it more relevant like Stree (2018). Jacqueline’s character was almost wasted in this film and none of her dialogues makes any sense. In a scene, where she is giving some speech to the villagers and even making a vlog, wasn’t up to the mark. As if like, the makers want to create comedy with dialogues rather than the actual situational comedy. Arjun gave a sensible performance here, rather than caricaturistic work Saif. Not so funny direction and there are loopholes in the story. The overall story is good but the execution is bad. The songs and music are good and you would love to it some extent. The two things that I actually liked is the real locations of Dharmshala and camera angles by cinematographer.
Bhoot Police movie has been written and directed by Pavan Kirpalani. The film have also co-written by Pooja Ladha Surti and Sumit Batheja. This film has been produced by Ramesh Taurani and Akshai Puri. The cinematography has been done by Jaya Krishna Gummadi and the editing work handled by Pooja Ladha Surti. The musical score has been given by Sachin–Jigar.
The budget of Bhoot Police movie hasn’t been revealed by the makers but it could reportedly be around 32 to 35 crores maximum.
Altogether, Bhoot Police is funny in bits and parts but it is nowhere near Stree.
Last Word: Watch it for the story and honest performances of Yami Gautam and Arjun Kapoor.
