Bhobishyoter Bhoot Review: A gutsy political satire filled with wit and laughter
Anik Dutta again returned to the world of ghosts in Bhobishyoter Bhoot. This time, he chose the bunch of ghosts to make a bold and hilarious political satire to address all the political parties, their acts, and propaganda with humor. However, if you are going to the theatre to see the old ghosts, you will be disappointed. Dutta has cleared this is no sequel of Bhooter Bhobishyot.
The film has a new set of ghosts and they are not bad at all. Just like Bhooter Bhobishyot, the crisis in the ghost world is the same. As the skyscrapers are making their way replacing the old mansions, the ghosts are losing their shelters. Finally, they took shelter in a single screen theatre Batighar (Batil Ghar). Soon, political parties and their goons started to trouble the ghosts and the story stars rolling.
Anik Dutta is a pro when it comes to satires. From the leftist time to contemporary politics, he didn't leave any stone unturned. The biggest challenge for Anik was competing with his own iconic creation Bhooter Bhobishyot. As both movies deal with the same base, the comparison was bound to happen. And, the director has fallen short here. Dutta is brilliant in his work, especially the witty punchlines are spot on even in this film. However, even after Dutta's best effort, the narrative gets exhausted due to too much happening at a time.
A film is carried by the ensemble cast. Needless to say, they did a commendable job and played their part with precision. However, the script doesn't allow anyone to stand out here as it did for Swastika's Kadalibala and Saswata Chatterjee in Bhooter Bhobishyot. Anyway, the audience will be pleased by the cameo of old and adored ghosts from Datta's debut film.
Debojyoti Mishra's music demands a special mention here. Each and every song fits the situation. They were enjoyable to watch on the screen. Avik Mukhopadhyay's camera is a plus.
Bhobishyoter Bhoot is definitely a must-watch. If not compared with the previous one, the film is entertaining, intelligent, and interesting at the same time.

What is the film all about?
Bhobishyoter Bhoot directed by Anik Dutta is a social satire involving the ghosts of the future. The film is not a sequel of Dutta's debut movie Bhooter Bhobishyot which is an all-time iconic blockbuster. However, just like his previous movie, this will also serve a satirical tone in the disguise of pure comedy.
What to expect from Bhobishyoter Bhoot?
A brilliant satire
Anik Dutta is known for smart and sleek satires that can be hard-hitting and hilarious at the same time. The audience is yet to forget Bhooter Bhobishyot that released in 2012. Although it is not a sequel, Dutta returning with a bunch of ghosts to address the social issues can be a memorable incident for Bengali movie viewers.
Anik Dutta weaves the dialogues like a magician. When it comes to punchlines, there is no one better than Bhooter Bhobishyot director. The witty dialogues will be the prime attraction for the audience and the film might get repeat audiences for this very reason.
Just like Dutta's previous movies, Anik Dutta's film has no superstar but a bunch of talented actors who can carry a film smoothly. The viewers will have huge expectation from the actors.
