Movies are mirror of society. From happiness to sorrow, entertainment to information and sometimes critique of existing system. Bhootnath Returns is one of the movies that claim critical thinking about the democratic set up and Indian society. The central positioning of the plot of story based on the ghost and children. The economic and social background of children from slum is another point to sketch from subaltern perspective. The hope of positive change through light of laugh is also attractive. This short note is based on sociological analysis of a movie and its political message through a critical review.
