In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave 1.5 stars (out of 5) to Bhoot: Part One and wrote: "For Vicky Kaushal, Bhoot: Part One represents a completely new universe. He plunges headlong into it, but can go only as far as the screenplay allows him. It seems to be a physically taxing role. He runs for cover, takes many tumbles, falls into dark chutes, is chased by apparitions, and has to look suitably ashen-faced every time he is confronted by the unfathomable, which is pretty often in the course of the two-hour movie. He does all this in right earnest - and gets it right for the most part. But it is all in the service of a film that runs aground before it sets sail."
In this film, the Masaan actor also shares screen space with Bhumi Pednekar and Ashutosh Rana in lead roles. Bhoot: Part One is the first of its series, directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh and produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions.
