Bhoot The Haunted Ship Trailer Review | Analysis


The official trailer of 'Bhoot: The Haunted Ship' has been released. The film features actor Vicky Kaushal in the lead role, who rose to fame after the stupendous success of 'Uri: The Surgical Strike'. And, actress Bhumi Pednekar plays the female lead in the film. 'Bhoot: The Haunted Ship' is scheduled to release on Friday, 21st February. As evident by the movie title, the film's story revolves around a haunted ship.

The trailer is nearly 3 minutes long, and has been quite neatly cut and well-presented. The trailer starts with a "dead ship" named 'Sea Bird', which somehow reaches the shores of Mumbai's Juhu beach due to bad weather. And, people find it strange that the ship is completely abandoned and no one is on-board.

Vicky Kaushal plays the role of a "surveying officer" named Prithvi, who goes inside the ship for surveying. The trailer then tells us that there are many mysterious stories about 'Sea Bird', and the ship is supposedly haunted. After a few scenes of Vicky Kaushal inside the ship which show ghostly activities, he is now shown to be seated in a semi-sitting position on what looks like a hospital bed where he claims that he saw a worker and a girl in the ship. Then we are shown a scene where Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and a little girl are in good times; I think, the woman and the child are mostly Vicky Kaushal's wife and daughter. The woman and child keep appearing and disappearing. Is the ship really abandoned? Or, are there people inside the ship like Vicky claimed? Or is he hallucinating? If he is not hallucinating, then are they real people or 'Bhoot'? And, at the end of the trailer, Prithvi (Vicky Kaushal) seems to have gotten trapped in the ship and is screaming for help.

In this mostly serious to the core trailer, there are comic moments as well, where we see an apparently stupid boy-girl couple who get into the ship to play Luka Chuppi! The girl hides in a metal cupboard, then she softly says "Bhoot" to scare her boyfriend, but the 'Bhoot' hears her call and appears behind her, and then it takes both the boy and the girl along with it.

The trailer is pretty promising, and it makes the film seem like a well-made horror film with quite an intriguing story to tell. Even though most of the horror elements seen in the trailer are actually nothing we haven't already seen before, they looked good and nicely done. From the trailer, it look likes the film has its share of the usual horror film clich├ęs. But, they are not a problem if they are well-presented and keep us entertained. After watching the trailer, I believe the story is pretty guessable. It appears, as if the haunted ship has a connection with Vicky Kaushal's personal story. And, it looks obvious that Bhumi Pednekar is the 'Bhoot' in the film. But, I really hope the film serves something outside of the box and not the usual 'wronged dead coming back as ghosts' horror films' theme.

The cinematography, background music and special effects were good. And, I liked the gloomy look & lighting, and the cold temperature feel of trailer. The film is produced by Karan Johar, and is written and directed by debutant Bhanu Pratap Singh.
