Bhoothnath Returns is a horror comedy-drama film directed by Nitesh Tiwari. A sequel to 2008 film Bhoothnath, the film again features Amitabh Bachchan in lead role. The film also stars Boman Irani in a negative role, along with Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor in their respective cameo appearances.
Bhoothnath Returns takes Bhoothnath's story forward. As Amitabh Bachchan returns to 'Bhoot World', he is greeted with taunts and blame from other ghosts for bringing disgrace 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.
Now Bhoothnath's search for kids brings him to Akhrot, played Parth Bhalerao - a slum kid and also the only person who can see him. Together they agree to help each other and their friendship sees them get involved in a cause that is bigger than they had ever imagined. To move ahead, they will need to take on one of the country's most powerful and corrupt politician Bhau, played by Boman Irani. The Lok Sabha elections are nearing and Bhau's victory is a mere formality, or is it?
In a world, where a common man is afraid of politics, will a common man's ghost overcome his fear to stand up for what's right and fight against injustice?
Bhoothnath Returns is an entertaining tale of good against evil, weak against powerful, past against future.
It is slated to release in theatres on April 11, 2014.
