Bhoot Part 1 just got its trailer and the audience is mixed. Hardcore horror fans have loved it. Woke audiences have not. Agreed, it’s not the best trailer ever, and the narrative goes into the B-movie zone in the trailer itself, but it’s not rank bad. Now, there are some rumors pouring out about the trailer. The YouTube audience is already making ‘Pachtaoge’ jokes about the trailer, and that’s not a good sign.

The word out there is that the trailer cut is not Bhanu Pratap Singh’s handiwork. In fact, the trailer’s the brainchild of another popular horror movie director, who’s been in the industry for more than twenty years. Now, we know that there’s an entire industry today that specializes in trailers, so this shouldn’t raise a brow.
Looks like horror is Karan Johar’s ‘I want to crack it’ genre. New audiences will point at the Netflix anthology Ghost Stories, but older audiences will remember the Karan Johar movie Kaal, one of India’s first nature/creature horror movies. Sohum Shah directed that one. Kaal starred Ajay Devgn and had a glamour song featuring Shah Rukh Khan.
Its interesting to see that Dharma has given out the entire premise of the Bollywood horror movie in the trailer itself. That means that the makers are confident of the content of the movie. They have more or less announced it as a horror-action flick.
