Movie Review: Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007)

3 Stars (out of 4)

When the mansion Siddharth (Shiney Ahuja) inherits appears to be haunted, he turns to his psychotherapist friend Aditya (Akshay Kumar) to explain the mysterious happenings and ease the fears of his superstitious relatives. The resolution is clichéd and drawn-out, but Bhool Bhulaiyaa is saved by its climactic dance number and Kumar’s terrific comedic acting. The awkward English subtitles are sometimes hard to follow, but the humor and chills translate well.

No Rating (violence); 155 minutes
