Overall Word of Mouth (Critics) - Awaited

1. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Reminiscent of films like Andaz Apna Apna, the characters take their situations and themselves very seriously. That paves the way for humour which is embedded neatly into the screenplay, is unabashed and character-led. References to old and some relatively new Hindi movies and kinky horror films of the bygone decades (Ramsay Brothers' films) are also stitched into the narrative seamlessly.

2. India Today -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Phone Bhoot is heavily dependent on Katrina Kaif and she honestly does her best to pull the film. Where she fails, the makers have strategically placed Ishaan and Siddhant, both known for their spunky comic timing, to add a nitrous boost.

3. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 1/5
Katrina Kaif-Ishaan-Siddhant film is painfully unfunny. Somewhere struggling underneath this mess starring Katrina Kaif, Ishaan Khatter and Siddhant Chaturvedi must have been a movie. But the one we get is a wrong number.

4. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Phone Booth isn't an earth-shattering, game-changing deal for the genre but it has the feel of a full-on mad hatters' party where everything goes. It isn't the least bit apologetic about it. That is the film's principal strength. 

5. Hindustan Times -

Rating Score -> n/a
Phone Bhoot is a promising film. It is a smartly written but not quite so well-executed effort that has its pros and several cons as well. It is a decent addition to the growing horror comedy genre in Bollywood. It’s not quite Stree in terms of hilarity and innovation but it’s not as bad as Roohi either.

6. News 18 -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
I wish the first half of Phone Bhoot made me laugh, and the second half which is outrageously quirky was plotted more cleverly. The film hurtles towards a messy climax and that is where the problem lies. Overall, this is a film that will tickle every palate but if you want to destress from the entire week’s workload, you can give it a shot.

7. Komal Nahta -

Rating Score -> n/a
Phone Bhoot is a well-written, well-enacted and well-made entertaining film which should do well in the good multiplexes and high-end single-screen cinemas of the big cities on the strength of youngsters and high gentry. But the inherent reluctance of the public to come to the cinemas for films like this (which can be consumed on OTT platforms) will adversely affect its box-office takings which, in the final tally, may be far less than merited. Its business in mass centres, of course, will be dull for the reasons mentioned above.
