Immediate reaction when the end credits roll
This ‘GHOST’ may sound familiar in the beginning but later takes an unexpected twist.

The Story of GHOST
Based on a newspaper article in which the British Court had allowed a matter involving spirits to be tried. GHOST is the story of Karan Khanna (Shivam Bhaargava ), a politician of Indian origin in the United Kingdom, who is accused of killing his wife Barkha (Gayatri Iyer).


Defence lawyer Simran Singh (Sanaya Irani) who is fighting her inner demons takes the case and how Karan and Simran get entangled in a web of haunting spirits and love finds the crux of this supernatural saga

GHOST movie review
Vikram Bhatt uses every elementary requirements of a Bollywood supernatural thriller and infuses it with his flair of confidence. The buildup is smooth the effects are sturdily built.

A couple of scenes like the hospital scene where Karan Khanna follows the ‘satan’  but finds the spirit getting passed to every passerby is build with mounting dread laced with dark humour and suspense.


The mere presence of that hand is scary. Vikram Bhatt effectively uses the learning’s from his previous movies of the genre with his education from Mahesh Bhatt’s school of mystery, scares, drama and romance for a pleasurable experience for a Bollywood horror/mystery loyal.

The lead cast Sanaya Irani, Shivam Bhaargava, Gayatri Iyer are competent. Ananya Sengupta is s surprise. Vikram Bhatt impresses as an actor shows a degree of subtlety.

Prakash Kutty cinematography is picturesque; Sangeet and Siddharth Haldipur’s background music is fantastic. Editing by Kuldip Mehan is fine.  


Music by Nayeem –Shabir, Sanjeev–Darshan, Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Sonal Pradhan and Vinay Ram Tiwari is passable when one is watching the movie.

Final words
Vikram Bhatt’s GHOST is a tour de scare that takes care that a loyalist of Bollywood’s supernatural horror/mystery is not disappointed. It’s effective and with that uncommonly intense and frightening twist during the final reels makes it as an experience worth a try.
