The first few reviews of Ravi Chopra's Vivek Sharma directed BHOOTHNATH have started trickling in. Expectedly, it is another mega performance from the megastar, Amitabh Bachchan and a great debut by the child star, Aman (Banku) Siddiqui. Even Juhi Chawla and Shah Rukh Khan (whose role is spread over 21-23 minutes) have given splendid performances. But that is not what we are here to tell you.
Actually, we want to let you know about the 'Ganga Kinarewala' connection in BHOOTHNATH. And no, its not Amitabh Bachchan that we are talking about, though we all know that Big B holds the title of 'Chora Ganga Kinarewala' (derived from his DON song) due to his native town Allahabad. But BHOOTHNATH also has a 'Bachcha Ganga Kinarewala'! What we mean to say is that like Big B, Aman too hails from Allahabad. Not only that Aman, unlike his character in BHOOTHNATH, is a very good student in real life. He recently got a scholarship from one of the many prestigious schools of Allahabad.
Here is hoping that the double 'Ganga Kinarewala' connection works wonders for BHOOTHNATH at the ticket window!
