A heart rendering entertainer, the story is about the mischievous yet kind hearted boy Aman Sharma dearly known as Banku (Aman Siddiqui) who is the son of Anjali Sharma (Juhi Chawla) and her loving husband (Shahrukh Khan). He and his tricks face a test when the family moves to Goa and decides to live in Nath villa which is considered to be a haunted place ever since the death of its owner Kailash Nath (Amitabh Bachchan) and his wife. The family moves into the mansion and as is believed, it is haunted by the ghost of Kailashnath who is not happy with the new inmates. He immediately starts creating trouble for Aman who finds a match for his mischief and instead of getting scared begins to vie with the spirit. The ghost is given the new name of 'Bhoothnath' and soon Bhoothnath and Aman start developing a liking for each other and when everything looks almost settled, in comes the son (Priyanshu Chatterjee) from America and announces that he is selling the house. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.


The debut effort of the director must be appreciated for having come out with an interesting story line packed with good script and matured screenplay. His presentation was enhanced and the narration was eloquent barring the second half. The technical values of the film are of very high standard and the camera has done a master's job capturing the right moments of emotion and the visual effects. The music department has failed miserably, the editing could have been better. Aman Siddiqui as the child artist was a show stealer who depicted the moments of naughtiness with ease and got the tears in the emotional moments. Shahrukh Khan was stylish though brief in his role, Juhi Chawla was bubbly and special with her performance. For those who thought that Amitabh is out, this will silence them as he has yet again proved that he is here to stay for a while. his performance was thundering. Satish Shah is a born comedian and has the magic to make all ages of audience laugh with his antics. Rajpal Yadav was okay but had limited scope to perform. Priyanshu Chatterjee did his job with perfection and has shown that he has a lot of potential. Nauheed Cyrusi was just about okay and so was Aashish Choudhary. The others did their job to the required standards.


Though the title sounds creepy, it is a mile away from eerie horror and is more of an enjoyable and emotional treat. The first half takes off at good speed and sucks the audience into the movie in no time but the second half is the culprit where unwanted songs were forced which were not even worth enjoying. This spoiled the rhythm but the climax kind of made up for this setback. For a spooky film, two things are important - technical values and tight script. Both these have been taken care of effectively and have made the film a good package. Commercially, the movie might well be the relief provider for the ailing industry.


Bharatstudent verdict: Worth watching, it's a family treat!!!
