The movie opened to negative reviews from film critics post its release on Friday. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave 1.5 stars (out of 5) to Bhoot: Part One and wrote: "You know a horror film is a horrific misfire when it resorts to every trick in the book to scare the living daylights out of you but fails to well and truly pin you down. There is no want of trying in Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship, written and directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh. The film abounds in tame and cliched genre tics that eventually amount to little. Forget sending chills down the spine, it barely elicits gasps of shock. If you do scream, it is more in disgust and bafflement than in fear."
Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Ashutosh Rana in pivotal roles. The film is the first of its series directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh and produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions.
