Bhoomi movie review: If Sanjay Dutt is the reason you are longing to catch up Bhoomi, you surely won’t be disappointed given the movie is an out and out portrayal of ‘khalnayak’s’ brilliance. The action revenge drama that Bhoomi is, unfolds the bonding of a father and daughter whose lives turn upside down after the girl is raped. What follows next is a trail of courtroom scenes, a hapless victim, a father filled with fury and bracing for revenge and heartless neighbours making things worse. Sounds pretty much old school? It might sound disappointing, but Bhoomi follows the lines of the same old rape-revenge story. But the movie has its reasons to glue you to the screens.
Watch trailer here:
Omung Kumar crafted scenes where you will cringe seeing how the victim is treated and he makes sure to charge your tear glands. Bhoomi is an amalgamation of modern day thinking and stereotypes. The movie rarely gives you feel good moments since it is heavily decked up with violent and gory scenes. Aditi Rao Hydari essays the victim’s role well and her performance will be well received by fans. Sharad Kelkar is a badass villain; you will dread each time he appears on the screen. Newcomer Sidhant Gupta as Hydari’s love interest gets little scope but delivers a fair performance but nothing great.
Bhoomi could have made for a brilliant watch had Kumar updated his plot to a more modern-day outlook. Overall the movie makes for a good one time watch, more so because of Sanjay Dutt.
