Bhoot Part 1 Critic Reviews & Ratings

While the film’s runtime is short, the pace seems exhausting because most of the scenes are concluded abruptly, leaving you waiting for the big reveal.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-1.5/5
Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship isn't an overlong film but, unfortunately, it takes next to no time to lose its rudder.

Within its murky labyrinth, with no sense of any direction from writer-director Bhanu Pratap Singh, the film doesn’t seem to end.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-2.5/5
The set-up is promising, as are the atmospherics, but the Seabird’s mysteries turn out to be more banal than intended.

  • Mid Day | Review By - Mayank Shekhar | Rating-2/5
This film actually doesn't. It keeps slipping back to normal, after a few jolting sequences thrown in. There's much back-story — as if you're meant to care.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Namrata Joshi | Rating-NA
Vicky Kaushal and jump scares manage to hold things together well till the Dharma vessel derails in the second half.

The psychological drama is skillful, but comes nowhere close to creating the terror of either Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining or Ram Gopal Varma’s Bhoot.

The film manages to intermittently hold one’s attention and engineers terrifying situations, but fails to keep up throughout its runtime.

  • News18 | Review By - Rohit Vats | Rating-2.5/5
Thanks to Kaushal and the screenplay, Bhoot serves the basic demands but it never rises beyond the obvious.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-2/5
And my real fear? The movie ends with a teaser to its sequel and that’s what is truly scary.

The film suffers from a half-baked plot and a flawed narrative which leaves viewers confused. The end result is completely unconvincing, barring a few scenes that provide some chills.

Overall Average Rating - 2.05/5
