One Line Review: Bhoomi is like the old wine served in a new bottle.
What’s it About?
Bhoominathan is a renowned Astronaut who fights a corporate biggie to save the farmers and their lands.
“Despite a spirited performance from Ravi and a much needed social plot, Bhoomi falls short of engagement.”~ Behindwoods
My rating for Bhoomi is 03/10.
Bhoominathan is an astronaut and does a groundbreaking discovery on growing plants on Mars and thereby widening the possibility of life there.
Before starting this experiment, Bhoomi comes to India for a vacation and he is devastated to see the situation of farmers in his hometown.
Seeing the farmers protesting for an indefinite period for necessary allowances and farmlands converting to drylands yielding crops that are no good to consume, Bhoomi tries to know the reason behind all these ill-happenings.
He finds out that certain corporate companies are using huge amounts of groundwater for their production purposes that caused water scarcity for farmers.
As a solution, Bhoomi steps forward to develop farming conditions through traditional methods and to motivate people to do the same. Bhoomi should face a corporate monster Richard Child to succeed in his noble venture.
Bhoomi has nothing good to boast about. Apart from Jayamravi giving out a convincing performance, the rest of the movie has nothing much to offer.
Well, to be honest, the movie does have an idea, a plot, and a good storyline. But it is nothing new. You may have seen the same story in a lot of movies already in different languages – a man fighting off corporate companies to save his land and people.
Performance-wise, I don’t know what to say, to be honest. If nothing is new in a movie, what can actors do more anyway? I won’t blame you if you forget Nidhi Agerwal who plays the love interest of Bhoomi while watching the movie because she appears then and now in the movie whenever you almost forget about her existence.
One of the things that makes Bhoomi a bit more cringy are a couple of scenes with zero logic. I would like to ask director Lakshaman that how he can see microscopic cells in a human body just by using a magnifying glass!
Bhoomi is an average movie with a routine storyline. At times, perhaps, you may like the stunt sequences. Apart from that, there is nothing impressive about the plot.
For sure this movie could have been better if the director tried to approach the problem discussed in the movie differently.
If you are willing to watch this movie keeping your brain aside, then you can give it a try (if you have nothing better to do).
