Priyadarshan always manages to entertain you, even if its the same comedy genre with nearly the same stars, but we still love the movies he makes. Bhool Bhulaiyaa is no different. Its a very entertaining movie and gives a great mix of suspense, comedy and horror.
The story of the movie is about a haunted palace which is said to have some ghosts in it. Siddharth (Shiny Ahuja) and Avni(Vidya Balan) come to live in the palace and Avni opens the locked door which prevented the ghost to come out. Now that its out it causes some weird events inside the palace. Siddharth then calls his friend Aditya Shrivastav (Akshay Kumar) a psychologist. He then arrives and solves the real mystery about the haunted palace.
Acting wise its a good performance from Akhay Kumar again. Vidya Balan was good enough. Shiny Ahuja didn’t impress me much in comical scenes. Rest of the cast was good on their part. I felt Rajpal Yadav could have had a better role, or rather more of time on screen. Amisha Patel too didn’t have much to do, but did a good job for whatever role she had.
Not many songs in the movie, but the pick is of course the popular chart buster title track “Bhool Bhulaiyaa”. Rest of the songs are good too. Allah Hafiz and Labon Ko were the other tracks I liked in the movie. The background music was quite good in view of the stuff you need to scare you in horror movies. Cinematography was quite good. The overall presentation was also impressive. The story isn’t as predictable as one would expect initially and both the halves are interesting. So to sum it up its a good movie and you won’t be disappointed.
