Horror comedies have been around since a long time, but have only recently begun gaining traction in Bollywood. Even in the South, they’ve been quite popular since a while, but it’s taken Bollywood filmmakers and subsequently, its audience, their own sweet time to warm up to the sub-genre. Bollywood did start the ball rolling long before the South with Mehmood and Tanuja‘s classic Bhoot Bungla, but for some reason, didn’t revisit the sub-genre till decades later. However, now that the idea has finally found its niche, the Hindi film industry is steadily churning out horror comedies at a regular click, with Go Goa Gone, Stree, Golmaal Again and Bhool Bhulaiyaa bieng the best ones that come to mind.

So does Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez and Yami Gautam starrer Bhoot Police, directed by Pawan Kripalani join their ranks, or does it end up being merely another attempt at cashing in on something that’s rising on the popularity charts? Well suffice it to say that the intent lies in the former direction and all said and done, Bhoot Police does offer mild doses of both horror and comedy to make for a fairly enjoyable watch.

So, are you excited about what to watch this weekend or what to watch this week and wondering whether Bhoot Police is worth your time? Scroll down for my full Bhoot Police review…
