: “Not Bad yet Not too Good” – A Timepass movie
Bhoot Police is a horror comedy film, directed by Pavan Kirpalani and produced by Ramesh Taurani and Akshai Puri. The film stars Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Yami Gautam and Javed Jaffrey] and premiered on 10 September 2021 on Disney+ Hotstar.
Ghost hunters Vibhuti (Saif Ali Khan) and Chiraunji (Arjun Kapoor) have been roped in by Maya (Yami Gautam), a tea estate owner, to complete the unfinished business of their father. Vibhuti sees it as yet another opportunity to fleece an innocent client, while his younger brother feels it is time they showcase the skill they have inherited from their father. Their names are traditional but their vocabulary is very up to date. Meanwhile, Maya’s sister (Jacqueline Fernandez) has her own plans and motives to tackle the situation. What happens next?….You need to watch the movie for it..No Spoilers!
The casting is spot on. Saif Ali Khan is in the Go Goa Gone mode and effortlessly doles out one punch after the other. It is his pitch-perfect performance that makes the writing livelier. Arjun Kapoor fits the part of the brooding brother looking to find his mojo. So does Jacqueline as the glamorous social media influencer who wants to shift to London. Jaaved Jaaferi and Jamie Lever’s comic timing add to the mirthful atmosphere.
The storyline gets predictable towards the end, but before it drags, Bhoot Police pack their bags, perhaps for a second outing. Its fun to watch but not rib tickling. You can definitely enjoy this one with your family and friends!
I would rate it a 3 out of 5!
