Bhool Bhulaiyaa is an Average Movie

Bhool BhulaiyaBhool Bhulaiyaa is finally out and I think the movie is an average fare. Priyadarshan is not that comfortable in mixing horror with comedy. I think priyadarshan should stick to his slapstick comedies. Acting wise Vidya Balan impresses. Other actors do their routine work. Even critics share similar feelings.

We have collected reviews by various critics.

Indiafm says: Hold on! The moment someone mentions BHOOL BHULAIYAA, images of a comic caper conjure up in front of your eyes. After all, accomplished storyteller Priyadarshan has successfully delivered laughathons in the past that made the viewer go ha-ha-hee-hee-ho-ho.

But BHOOL BHULAIYAA, a remake of the Malayalam hit MANICHITRATHAZHU, is a complete departure from Priyan’s films. How, did you ask? Here’s why… There’s comedy, but in minimal doses. There’re songs, but only when the situations warrant. In BHOOL BHULAIYAA, it’s all about suspense and spirits. It’s eerie and [certain] portions of the film are not for the faint hearted. Read more…

Radiosargam says: Bhool Bhulaiyaa, directed by Priyadarshan is a comic thriller dealing with human psychology amidst the beautiful locales of Rajasthan. Bhool Bhulaiyaa is the Hindi remake of the critically acclaimed Malayalam blockbuster, Manichitrathazhu. The film was also remade in Telugu as Chandramukhi in 2005.

The plot of Bhool Bhulaiyaa revolves around a small village whose denizens are very conservative and superstitious. America settled young couple Siddarth (Shiney Ahuja) and Avni (Vidya Balan) arrive at their ancestral mansion to spend their holidays in India. Read more..

Rediff says: Oh, hello there. I know you, don’t I? You’re the one planning a weekend movie, deciding to skip a decidely weepy-looking Yash Raj Film for one of those assembly line Priyadarshan movies because, after all, how bad can an Akshay Kumar  film be? Not to mention Paresh Rawal and the rest of the usual slapstick suspects, united here to remake Manichitrathazhu, a Malayalam superhit with a definitely interesting plot. Read more..
