It is definitely scary if watched on the big screen like I did . The thing that separates Bhoot from the regular Ramsay Brothers' cheesy horror flicks is that the story unfolds in a high-rise apartment in Mumbai and not... Full review

"Bhoot" is a supernatural horror movie set in urban jungle of Bombay.Vishal(Ajay Devgan),a stock analyst and his wife Swati(Urmila Matondkar)move into a new apartment.The fact that the previous occupant died jumping off from the balcony doesn't deter Vishal.He doesn't inform... Full review
The movie greatly benefits from excellent direction and the pacing is great. One is always on tenterhooks and many a times the viewer gasps or mayhaps even lets out a small scream.After a long wait, the Indian horror movie segment... Full review
A "spirited" take on the horror genre!

Prior to `Bhoot', I had seen only 1 ½ Ram Gopal Varma films: years ago, I'd enjoyed watching `Rangeela', a frothy confection with a delightful Aamir Khan and a newly voluptuous Urmila Matondkar (I say `newly' because until then, I... Full review

I went to see this movie expecting to find another dumb "chaitan" story. But found that this one is actually pretty darn good, even without qualifying it as a Hindi horror film.Hindi horror films are awful. I am yet to... Full review

Many of the scary bits in the movie are clich├ęs: we've seen them in countless Hollywood horror movies - but the difference is, we now get to see those stock genre conventions in an Indian movie, that's what is brilliant about it. Varma has to be admired for time and time again risking a genre movie when everybody else plays it safe with six songs and a feel-good family drama. ... Full Review

Apun ka Choice
The highlight of Bhoot is its nail biting plot and Varma's stylized cinematic presentation.....Another highlight of the movie is its duration of 1 hour 59 minutes.....Unlike other Bollywood movies, the intimacy between the couple is more mature.....And the commendable performances by its key players, propped by Varma's sleek direction, sends the shivers down the spines of the viewers..... ... Full Review

Variety
Varma has since admitted the movie is basically a remake -- with characters shifted around -- of his 1991 horror movie, "Raat," (Night) made in both Telugu and Hindi versions, but the technique on display in "Bhoot" is of a much higher order. Most of the acting honors are taken by Matondkar, who's admirably restrained as the possessed Swati, and Patekar, dryly stone-faced as the cop. ... Full Review

Rediff India
Up to this point, Varma's grip on the narrative is absolutely perfect. At that moment, Varma and his horror show had lost me. His is the soothing presence in the nerve-wracking scenes at the beginning of the film. ... Full Review
