Our Review

 

CAST:  Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Yami Gautam,

DIRECTOR: Pavan Kripalani

BLUF:

Vibhooti Baba (Saif Ali Khan) and Chiraunji Baba (Arjun Kapoor) are the ghostbusters. While Vibhooti is the lovable crook who deceives people for their money under the guise of liberating them of spirits, the other Chiraunji is not happy with this way of making a living. They meet a real spirit and things change.

 

THE MEAT AND THE POTATOES

Chiraunji tries to persuade his brother to take up a ‘real case’ as they are tantriks and they have a bigger objective after he figures out the language in their dead father’s book. Maya (Yami Gautam) comes looking for their father, Ullat Baba since there is an evil spirit called Kichkandi in her tea estate. Vibhooti and Chiraunji’s father Ullat Baba helped her get rid of the spirit 27 years ago. When Maya asks for their help, the brothers agree. The ghostbusters visit the Silawar Tea Estate only to untangle some surprises in the saga.   

 

IN THE KNOW

Saif Ali Khan has a remarkable screen presence and amazing comic timing. It is his performance that keeps you regaled all the way through. His one-liners are pheno even if the actions are completely redundant.

Kapoor as Chiraunji – the naive and virtuous brother is more of the serious type and battles to makes an impact. Yami as Maya is this resolute daughter who is bent on saving her father’s tea estate from the spirit who is scaring her employees away. Jacqueline Fernandez is forgettable as the influencer sister of Maya.

We were expecting more from Chedilal (Jaaved Jaaferi) who we would have loved to see more of (like a reprise of the character of the lovable landlord from an older Saif movie with his comic timing), Google Baba (Rajpal Yadav), and Hari Kumar (Amit Mistry) are not utilized to the extent they could have been. Bhoot Police is entertaining in parts, yet it does have its much-required humorous elements and lacks impact on others.

The inconsistent writing is the culprit, and the execution of the comedy in terms of editing and direction leaves much to be desired in terms of pace and timing.

 

WHAT WE LOVED

Saifu

WHAT WE MISSED
