Complete review of ‘Bhoomi’
Star Cast: Sanjay Dutt, Aditi Rao Hydari, Shekhar Suman, Sharad Kelkar, Sidhant Gupta
Director: Omung Kumar
Producer: Bhushan Kumar, Sandeep Singh, Omung Kumar
Music Director: Sachin-Jigar
Apart from Sanjay Dutt’s comeback, Bhoomi has been grabbing eyeballs with a Sunny Leone item number, indicating a testosterone fueled film. The film is helmed by Omung Kumar and also stars Shekhar Suman, Sharad Kelkar and Sidhant Gupta, with music composed by Sachin-Jigar.
Story of the movie:
The story of Bhoomi starts in Agra where Bhoomi (Aditi Rao Hydari) lives with her father Arun Sachdeva (Sanjay Dutt) – who owns a shoe store in the city. Along with being selling shoes Arun also sells some rotten jokes on drinks with his whiskey-buddy Taj (Shekhar Suman). Bhoomi loves Neeraj (Sidhant Gupta) and both of them are going to get married.
All’s well in the life of these innocent people until we know Bhoomi has a one-sided lover. Vishal, who by the way, is also a relative of Dhauli (Sharad Kelkar) – a famous don of an infamous area. Now, the already dragged film takes a turn and Bhoomi gets raped. After which begins the battle of justice. In the film, Arun visits the police station, court room, to get justice for his daughter. So to know whether the Bhoomi gets justice, you have to see this movie.
Omang Kumar’s directorial and backdrop in the movie is good. Also the film’s art work is also fine. But if you talk about the story, then it is very repetitive. Every scene in the film can be easily predicted, no surprise element has been placed anywhere. In such a situation, there was a need to strengthen the story. If you talk about dialogue, then it can be more powerful.
Star Cast Performance:
Sanju baba fans will love him in the action sequences, wish he had backed a better comeback. His acting is quite good, which somewhere left you emotional. Sanjay as a furious father does well but again is overshadowed by the story. Dutt’s face is kept in close-up for much of the film, and there is still power in it.
Aditi Rao Hydari plays the whimpering victim well. She is also remarkable, first as the stuttering, sweet girl and later as the woman seeking revenge. She’s the only good thing about the movie. She aces her part but unfortunately is hit by the bad story. She is adorable & you feel for her rather than her situation.
Sharad Kelkar as Dhauli acts well in his role. His character has got some screwed up one-liners which he delivers just about fine.
Veer Aryan as Vishal & Puru Chibber as Ghulaam are okay. Special mention – Riddhi Sen as Jeetu nails his role but is very underused. Shekhar Suman has given a good support to Sanju in the role of friend.
Music is by Sachin-Jigar who fail yet again with Bhoomi. Not a single list-topper, each song seems like an addition to an already dragged product. Not a single song managed to impress.
Watch Or Not:
Watch Bhoomi for Dutt. He’s from that era of larger-than-life heroes who get you to whistle even when he is killing people. If you are Sanjay Dutt’s dai hard fan and are looking forward to his short break, this film is for you.
