Post the humiliation, Bhoothnath decides to redeem himself and come back to scare a bunch of kids.
Bhoothnath’s search for kids brings him to Akhrot, a slum kid who is also the only person who can see him. Together they agree to help each other and their friendship sees them get involved in a cause that is bigger than they had ever imagined. To move ahead they will need to take on one of the country’s most powerful and corrupt politician Bhau. The Lok Sabha elections are nearing and Bhau’s victory is a mere formality, or is it?
In a world, where a common man is afraid of politics, will a common man’s ghost overcome his fear to stand up for what’s right and fight against injustice?
Bhoothnath Returns is an entertaining tale of good against evil, weak against powerful, past against future.
