Film producer and commerce analyst Girish Johar had added the family-going viewers will go to theatres for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 as, “it will be a paisa vasool entertainer”.
But, the Anees Bazmee directorial has didn’t impress critics. The Indian Express’ Shalini Langer gave the film a 2-star score. In her assessment, she wrote, “Don’t go expecting any light touches, or any hummable music like Part I. Apart from Monjulika’s white-faced, long-tressed, black-dressed look, there are repeated jokes at the expense of an overweight child and a hard-of-hearing pandit, casual disrespect towards an old woman who has just died, gross misuse of a donkey, and Roohan’s borderline sexism towards the other gender.”
