Life takes a flip when he comes into contact with a Sikh ghost, Makhan Singh (Jackie Shroff). Makhan thinks Srikant is his reincarnated grandfather who handed away in 1975.

Srikant and Netra come nearer as a pair as properly, which may be one thing that Makhan Singh meant from the beginning.

Movies with pleasant ghosts have been made earlier than. Chamatkar (1992) and Phillauri (2017) instantly come to thoughts. Atithi Bhooto Bhava type of continues the legacy. In an period the place raunchy and bathroom humour holds sway, you smile while you see a ghost getting thrown out of a automotive as a result of he hadn’t placed on a seatbelt. Other than the light-hearted humour bordering on the foolish, the movie is peppered by homilies on relationships. That too is a gag as a result of Makhan is repeating issues his grandfather had taught him to a person he believes is his born once more grandfather. The movie retains it easy, with Makhan not interfering a lot and letting the couple iron out the kinks of their relationship principally by themselves. It is a really feel good movie from begin to end the place good individuals turn out to be nicer on the finish.

The movie leans closely on Jackie Shroff’s attraction. He is completely likeable as a pleasant ghost. The person can absolutely act and performs his character with a lightweight contact, holding issues easy, reacting to co-stars and conditions, remaining true to the story all through. What can one say about Pratik Gandhi? He is an entire actor who not solely modulates his voice correctly – the youthful and older variations sound totally different – but in addition will get each the Punjabi and Marathi accents proper. Such is his kind at the moment that he may do no unsuitable. He shares a simple on-screen camaraderie with Jackie Shroff within the movie, which was essential, as he is proven to be the one one who can see the ghost. Sharmin too seems to be convincing because the woman who has a tough time adjusting to her man’s quirks. She and Pratik come out as an actual couple. Their issues are on a regular basis issues blown out of proportion and the actors complement one another’s performances. Divinaa Thackur is competent because the understanding greatest buddy.

The movie may have extra enjoyable with the ghost’s character by using higher particular results however did not take up on the chance. Athithi Bhuto Bhava is not a laugh-out-loud comedy however would absolutely carry a smile to your face…

Story: ‘Atithi Bhooto Bhava’ is a couple of slapstick comedian who in an inebriated state, meets a ghost. Issues take a weird flip when the ghost requests the slapstick comedian to assist him meet his long-lost love.

‘Atithi Bhooto Bhava’ is a type of movies that tries laborious to make sure that the sequences within the movie are pitch excellent and every thing falls into place, however the consequence is simply the alternative and every thing really falls flat. The ultimate consequence is way from passable. Director Hardik Gajjar takes the assistance of an outdated formulation and tries to provide his personal twist to the story. A pleasant ghost assembly a typical man and the next unfolding of occasions can now at greatest be described as a clichéd theme.
This comedy-drama is a couple of slapstick comedian, Shrikant Shirodkar, who’s in a live-in relationship with Netra, an air hostess. Whereas Netra follows an everyday day job routine, Shrikant takes care of family duties, together with cooking. Although Shrikant is dedicated to Netra, his “shrugging” angle typically is a significant turn-off for Netra, which regularly ends in bitter fights between the 2. Sooner or later, whereas on his manner again house, Shrikant encounters Maakhan Singh, a 55-year-old Sikh who helps him by guaranteeing he reaches his house safely. Little does he understand that the person is a ghost and in one other life, Shrikant was his grandfather. He presents to go away his home on the situation that he helps him meet his long-lost love, who lives in Mathura. Lots transpires throughout the journey from Mumbai to Agra, and that kinds the crux of the story.

Whereas the movie does sparkle in a number of sequences, it stays useless wooden until the top. This movie primarily stays a comedy, however the chuckles are few and much between. The movie employs outdated tropes to maneuver the story ahead. The one chuckles this movie manages to ship are by way of a bartender and a housemaid. Prateek Gandhi and Jackie Shroff are nearly in each body of the movie, and one should not neglect that comedy will not be their biggest weapon.

Pattern this – there’s a sequence in ‘Atithi Bhooto Bhava’ when a Punjabi character asks his woman love “Tumhara roka ho gaya?”. The reply he’s greeted with is “Kisi ne roka hello nahi.” Now this additionally offers a peek into the temper of the dialogues of the movie. A physician crying on the sight of a ghost and Jackie stepping into the physique of a feminine Dhaba proprietor after which talking in a manly voice is simply not the suitable device to evoke laughter. The movie really tries too laborious on many fronts to evoke laughter, however one sees by way of and finds out that it’s not working.

Prateek Gandhi steps into a personality that’s near being a ‘dude’ and delivers blended outcomes. He delivers a honest efficiency, however a mean screenplay prevents him from going all out. It’s evident that Jackie Shroff knew fairly properly what he was stepping into. He should have discovered that the function is a cakewalk for him and thus didn’t put in a lot effort, which ultimately seems to be extra like a mean efficiency. It’s kind of of a thriller that the director didn’t give a lot display area to Anuradha Patel, who seems in direction of the top for a couple of minutes sans dialogues. One solely needs that Hardik Gajjar and his crew would have labored extra on the screenplay of the movie and refined it.

‘Atithi Bhooto Bhava’ is a movie that may be watched at any cut-off date with none expectation. It doesn’t tax your mind however on the similar time, it’s also devoid of any benefit.
