1. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
While the film’s runtime is short, the pace seems exhausting because most of the scenes are concluded abruptly, leaving you waiting for the big reveal. However, the all-important backstory isn’t convincing enough to make your wait worth it. For a horror film, ‘Bhoot Part One The Haunted Ship’ falls short of sending chills down your spine. At best, it can give you a few spooks.

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
Prithvi, who has rescued some girls from being smuggled in a container even as we are still settling into our seats, is asked by Riyaz if he is a Superman, Spider-man or Batman. Singh’s inspirations clearly lie elsewhere (think Shining, multiple times over). Plus, were any of those superheroes equipped with a machine that started beeping crazily in the presence of ghosts?

Rating Score -> 3/5
'Bhoot The Haunted Ship', overall, makes up for the lost points too -- as it fully exploits the lump-in-the-stomach feeling -- while delivering what it intially promised. It's not a scarefest, but is a pretty engaging. It also is one of the better-made horror movies in Indian cinema, and it deserves a dekko especially for that. Watch 'Bhoot' for Vicky Kaushal's stellar act, and a well-rounded psycological-cum-horror drama presented by a prominent production house -- a rarity in the Hindi film industry.

Rating Score -> 2/5
Director Bhanu Pratap Singh has its golden moments, but doesn’t come together as a whole. It’s patchy when it comes to thrills, but it doesn’t bore you to death either. And my real fear? The movie ends with a teaser to its sequel and that’s what is truly scary. Do you really need to have a second instalment when the first isn’t always spine-chilling.

5. Khaleej Times -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Bhoot in the end leaves a lot more questions unanswered and leaves you with a feeling of incompleteness. The explanation for that though is there in the title itself - Part One - which means that there is a second part to follow soon to tie up all the loose ends. Whether Vicky Kaushal's charisma alone is enough to lead audiences back to the theatres for a second round remains to be seen. If you are a fan of the horror genre, you may find bits and piece to keep you hooked. Technically, the movie is a visual delight, specially the scenes set within the dilapidated ship, but sadly the plot doesn't keep the same pace and that proves a bit of a let down.

6. Mumbai Mirror -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
The power of a classic horror film lies in how it utilises its silences and renders one sensitive to every sound. Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship manages to intermittently hold one’s attention and engineers terrifying situations, but
fails to keep up throughout its runtime.

7. Mid-Day -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Eventually, everything boils down to two or three quick scenes — with top-notch sound and production design — where you can hear audiences laugh. And that's a great news. Those are nervous laughs. Nobody laughs at a horror film. Ever. The loudest ones are in fact the biggest believers.

#Bhoot: DULL.
Rating: Medium star½
Fails to live up to its title... Weak writing... Lethargic pace... Few scares... Exhausting second half... Unconvincing backstory... #VickyKaushal is the only plus here. #BhootReview
