Bhooter Bhabishyat (English: Future of the past or future of ghost) is a 2012 Bengali film directed by Anik Dutta. The film became one of the biggest hits of 2012 among the Bengali films. It is a film with supernatural element.
Bhooter Bhabishyat - though it is a ghost story, it is meant to be a comic entertainer. The story is about a haunted house which is being pulled down and being replaced with a swanky shopping mall. Apparently, the ghosts who belong to different era consider this as their home so what happens later on shapes the rest of the story.
