#Bhoot struggles, doesn't make the desired noise at ticket window... Witnesses minimal growth on Day 2 and 3... Finds limited patronage at multiplexes... Sustaining well from Mon to Thu is pivotal... Fri 5.10 cr, Sat 5.52 cr, Sun 5.74 cr. Total: ₹ 16.36 cr. #India biz.- taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) February 24, 2020
Film critic and trade analyst Sumit Kadel, who gave the Vicky Kaushal Bhumi Pednekar-starrer a three-star rating said the Dharma Productions bankrolled Bhoot was a "genuine no-nonsense horror film with some great scare moments." Kadel added the background score of the film was "top-notch". He also applauded Vicky Kaushal for delivering a "powerful performance".
#Bhoot - Genuine no nonsense horror film with some great scare moments. First half is excellent, second half is average but picks up well towards the end . Vicky Kaushal delivers a powerful performance. BG score & visuals are top notch. Recommend.

The latest Vicky Kaushal film is directed by a debutant, Bhanu Pratap Singh. The Dharma Productions backed horror film tells the story of a couple abandoned on a stranded ship on Juhu beach in Mumbai. Vicky Kaushal's character is given the responsibility to investigate this matter and in the process, Kaushal's character experiences some really horrid events. The film stars actors like Ashutosh Rana and Siddhant Kapoor in pivotal roles.
