Verdict : A Must Watch Movie For Horror Lover's.In spite of its glaringly haunting flaws, 'Bhoot - Part One : The Haunted Ship' is a decent sonically atmospheric scare fest having Vicky Kaushal delivering an arresting act. It offers something different from the routine Bollywood scares.
The first part of the planned franchise 'Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship' to a considerable extent stays away from the routine run of the mill scare fest. Not an easy movie to shoot where most of the action scares happen inside an old rusted ship. Aditya Kanwar’s rustic and dark production design and Pushkar Singh’s apt cinematography makes sure that the vision that director Bhanu Pratap Singh has in his mind comes true to the naked eyes of the audience.
Performance-wise Vicky Kaushal is terrific as a man torn between his hallucinating past and demanding present. Ashutosh Rana as the expert on demons supernatural elements is outstanding. Bhumi Pednekar is brilliant in a special appearance and has one stand out moment.
Writer, Director Bhanu Pratap Singh juggles between a dark, hallucinating elements of a psychological thriller with the eerie essentials of a supernatural thriller to a niece effect. Predominantly atmospheric with solid sonic feel. Ketan Sodha’s background score and Anish John’s sound design is just perfect.
Overall, 'Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship' is a planned studio arrangement more than a showcase of individual brilliance in the genre.
If you are a horror movie lover and want to scream, this movie is a must watch. The movie rated 3.5 stars is released on 21 February 2020.
