Bhoothnath Returns

Synopsis: Bhoothnath Returns takes Bhoothnath's story forward. As he returns to 'Bhoot World' he is greeted with taunts and condemnation from other ghosts for bringing disrepute to the ghost-community for getting bullied by a kid on Earth. Post the humiliation, Bhoothnath decides to redeem himself and come back to scare a bunch of kids. Bhoothnath's search for kids brings him to Akhrot, a slum kid who is also the only person who can see him.

To move ahead they will need to take on one of the country's most powerful and corrupt politician Bhau. The Lok Sabha elections are nearing and Bhau's victory is a mere formality, or is it?

'Well, in this world there

are two kinds of ghosts.'

'Two kinds.'

'The ones who stay back

because of an unfulfilled desire.'

'They are stuck in this world

till their desire isn't fulfilled.'

'Like him.'

'Why are you still stuck here, sir?'

Till Sweetie doesn't

offer a wreath to my grave..

This Lobds ghost

isn't going anywhere.


'I think he has become

a tad too emotional.'


- 'Okay, okay.. Okay.'

'And what about you, ma'am'?'

He took the ulcer out of my stomach

but forgot his mobile inside.

Let him die,

I'll thrash him and escort him up.

'And you?'

I just want to know

who left this manhole open.



'All the best.'

'And then there are

those who are like me.'

'Who, after their

desire is fulfilled.'

'Declare their innings

and return to the pavilion.'

'And this pavilion is called..'

'The Ghost World.'

This Ghost World isn't

like you think it is.'

'It's like an exotic resort.'

'That's all.'

'Ghosts chill out over here.'

'Spend their time as they please.'

'Enjoy their ghostly powers.'


That's Mrs. Rastogi.

She too is dead!

She died because of malaria.

How cheap.

Ladies, I tell you.

'And they wait for their next life.'

'This grand building

that you see before you..'

'This is the main office.'

'The Main office.'


Surely the building is amazing.

But the work in here is just

like a government office.


So, don't keep your

expectations too high.



No, brother.

Brother you were born in |ndia..

But you died as an NRI, right?

In Canada.

So try the Canada department.

Okay? okay We-



They got married yesterday, right?

Let Mrs. Apte get pregnant at least.

Then we'll send you.

Okay? okay.


Kailash Nath.

Kailash Nath!

Oh! So you are

Bhoothnath (Ghost Nath).


Bhoothnath (Ghost Nath).

Good. Good.

How long will I have to wait

for my next life?

That depends on what you wish to be.

A mosquito, a fly, an ant, a flea.

Ready delivery.

Dog, cat, goat, pig..

If you wish to be any of

these, then that'll take a week.

And to be an actor's dog you'll

have to give a written application.

That's beyond our powers.

It's decided by that lucky draw.

I want to be a human.

Then take this token.

And wait.

Ten crore one thousand twenty-nine.

How long do I have to wait?

"Token number 13,482."

It's a long wait.

When your turn comes,

meet the senior officer.


Thank you sir.


Everyone's laughing at me.

What's going on?

How do you expect them not to.


You've made a mockery out of ghosts.

Mockery out of ghosts?

- Yes.

How so?

You couldn't scare

a kid on earth.

What was his name?


"Mr. Banku"

"Mr. Banku, never gets scared,

Mr. Banku"

Got it?

Mr. Bhoothnath, where do you think

you are going? Excuse me!

It's not your turn.

You cannot go upstairs.

I'll cancel your token Bhoothnath.

Excuse me, sir.

- Sir. Sir. He has come out of turn.



Sir, for how long will this go on?

For how long what will go on?

Sir, everyone is laughing at me.

You only gave them the chance.

Sir, that kid could see me.

How's that my fault?

Umm..That's our technical fault.

Because of which some people

can see ghosts and some can't.

We're working on it.

But you shou|d've scared him.

Sir, what has happened has happened.

Then what's happening,

let that happen too.

Sir please do something

it's getting very embarrassing.

Please, sir.

Please. Please. Please.


Let's do one thing.

Let's send you back to earth.

Go there and scare a

few kids and clear your name.

But sir, my number..

it's going take a longtime.

Not as a human being.

But as a...ghost.

Can you do that?

I can do anything.

But you need to think...

Or else, instead of winning respect

You might end up losing

even your self-respect.

Well in that case sir...

You can laugh all you want.

Okay, as you please.

What have you done, sir.

Look...there are three things really

missing in our Ghost World.


Entertainment. Entertainment.

And he is entertainment?

'For the first time, a ghost was

returning back to earth as a ghost.'

'What was I supposed to do,

my honour was at stake.'

'But then, another question arose.'

'Which kid should I scare?'

Uncle, give me a burger.

'Alas I found my target.'

Aye...get lost from here.

How dare you..

One whack on your head

and you'll become a ghost.

What are you doing?

Can't you see his fault.

Do you want one too?

'This kid seems too dangerous.'

These ghosts are so funny.


Any passing by spirit, please come.

Any passing by spirit, please come.

Any passing by spirit, please come.

Just a minute.

Why are we calling a ghost?

First we'll bully him

then we'll make him do our homework.

Get going, Bhoothnath!

Better scram off.

Everyone seems like a saint

while taking the token.

By the time they become children

they become complete devils.

Come on, let's go home.

What happened?

- What happened?

Don't you know who stays here?

What's the big deal...

why are you guys getting scared?

A ghost lives here.

We shouldn't play here. My mom

says ghosts come here after dark.

There is no such thing as ghosts.

I too, used to think

so before I died.

Ghosts are real, my boy.

And they can be very scary.


Who laughed?

Must be some drunkard.


Come before us if you have the guts.

I am a ghost!

Get scared...l am a ghost!

He won't listen like this.

Remove our victory's stuff out.

Yes, boss.

Oh no Ayeee.. Ohhh...

Oh God!

Next time if he messes with us

we'll burst him like a firecracker.

Kids these days, by God.

I can understand if they

aren't scared of their father..

"but they aren't even..

"they aren't

even scared of ghosts.

Hey, you!

Why were you messing

around with those kids?

Why are you staring at me?

I am talking to you.

Why are you looking behind?

Hey can see me?

These are eyes, not buttons.

Why are you touching your hair?

What's in your beard?

You can really see me?

Yes. So?

Oh no, sir! Not again!

Change your system at least now!

Here's another child who can see me.

What are you doing?

Why wouldn't I be able to see you?

Kiddo, you don't know who I am.

Why? Are you The Invisible Man?

No. I'm a ghost!

Then I'm a witch.

Will you marry me?

Everything I am saying

is going over your head.

Come to my level

and then we shall talk.

Come on up.

Oh damn! You really are a ghost.

Are you feeling scared now?

Poor fears no one.

Here also you are delivering

dialogues. Get down.

That's awesome.

Sit here. Come on.

Sit. Sit down.


I'm Bhoothnath.

I'm Akhrot (Walnut).


It means solid from

outside but soft from inside.

Can I ask you one thing?

Ask two.

What should I do

that smart kids like you..

"get scared of simple

ghosts like me.

You know what your problem is?

You are as strong as a bull

but you are as naive as a cow.

If you want to scare kids then

do something scary not funny.
