Now, since you've got a refresher about 'Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship', here is the film's review, as put up by BollywoodLife.
"Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship' starts off on a genuinely scary note. The first half is devoted to the build-up and some of it is quite chilling. Vicky Kaushal does a good job of playing Prithvi, a young man suffering from depression and hallucinations. The mood of the film is eerie and creepy all through. It makes you sit up and how. Bhumi Pednekar is radiant in her cameo but Ashutosh Rana's character comes across as comical.
The first half takes up a lot of your time and the film might disappoint some with its storyline. While the second half is eventful, it looks quite predictable after a point.
Overall, 'Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship' is a good film to enjoy over popcorn. It is a sound product technically and the production will impress you. Moments from the film will stay with every horror film buff. It is a good one time watch."
