Bhootnath may be inspired by Casper the friendly ghost but it has a different story. The first half was quite childish although it wasn't that bad but the second half was so good that it saved the whole film. In other words it had a little bit of everything for every age e.g. First half is for children & second half is for adults. The film had a very nice, funny, emotional and heart touching relationship between a little boy and a ghost.
It is the directorial debut of Vivek Sharma and is produced by the team behind Baghban & Baabul. This year their have been extremely disappointing directorial debut films that were completely rubbish like U Me aur Hum & Tashan but Bhootnath isn't. It also has been a long time since Shah Rukh Khan & Juhi Chawla came back together on screen. I have always liked their on screen chemistry ever since I've seen Darr, so I was glad to see them together again. The music is OK and they will appeal to children and the only catchy song is Mere Buddy.
The only scene I didn't like is the very first song were all the children are dressed up like teenagers, I felt like it was unnecessary and did not suit the mood for the film otherwise Bhootnath is a very sweet film that leaves a smile on your face throughout and I also liked the teacher who steals all the lunch-boxes and the photo of him on his desk eating a huge sandwich was really funny. The opening credits was interesting when the candle burned out and the smoke turned into the title of the movie.
