Bhoomi
movie
review
here,
to
know…
Plot
Bhoominathan
aka
Bhoomi
(Jayam
Ravi)
is
an
astronaut
who
is
getting
ready
for
a
farming
project
that
is
supposed
to
happen
on
Mars.
Before
he
starts
his
mission,
Bhoomi
visits
his
native
village
in
Tamil
Nadu
with
his
mother
(Saranya
Ponvannan),
where
he
rekindles
his
romance
with
Shakthi
(Nidhhi
Agerwal).
However,
things
take
a
different
turn
after
Bhoomi
realises
the
problems
faced
by
the
farmers
of
his
village
and
decides
to
solve
them
before
his
mars
mission.
In
the
process,
he
locks
horns
with
a
corporate
company
owner
named
Richard
King
(Ronit
Roy).
How
Bhoomi
turns
saviour
to
the
farmers
forms
the
crux
of
the
story.
Script
&
Direction
Bhoomi
deals
with
one
of
the
most
over-used
themes
of
Tamil
cinema
in
recent
times

farmers’
issues.
This
Jayam
Ravi-starrer,
which
is
written
and
directed
by
Lakshman,
hardly
offers
anything
new,
apart
from
its
Mars
mission
angle
(which
is
highly
unconvincing
too).
The
main
plot
is
stretched
into
a
tiresome
movie
experience
with
an
extremely
cliche,
preachy
narrative.
The
forceful
romantic
track,
weak
characterisations,
overdosage
of
patriotism,
dramatic
dialogues,
and
bad
song
placements
sabotages
even
the
little
effect
that
has
been
made
by
some
genuine
performances.
As
the
occasional
sparks
suggest,

Bhoomi
is
an
honest
attempt
to
discuss
a
compelling
subject.
But
sadly,
it
ends
up
as
a
monotonous
film.
And
yes,
it
would
be
better
if
the
Tamil
filmmakers
leave
the
farmers
of
the
state
alone
for
a
while.
Performances
Jayam
Ravi
delivers
an
earnest
performance
as
Bhoominathan
and
tries
his
best
to
elevate
the
otherwise
dull
narrative.
The
talented
actor
truly
deserves
to
be
a
part
of
more
author-backed
roles.
Nidhhi
Agerwal
is
forgettable
as
Bhoomi’s
unbelievably-dumb
(another
cliche)
girlfriend
Shakthi.
Ronit
Roy,
the
antagonist
looks
his
part
as
the
menacing
corporate
king,
but
fails
to
create
any
impact
with
the
performance.
The
rest
of
the
star
cast,
including
Thambi
Ramaiah,
Radha
Ravi,
Saranya
Ponvannan,
Sathish,
and
others
are
wasted
in
their
minimal
roles.
Technical
Aspects
Despite
all
the
flaws,

Bhoomi
creates
an
impact
with
its
visuals
by
Dudley,
which
has
set
a
perfect
backdrop
for
the
story.
The
editing
is
not
up
to
the
mark,
as
the
movie
has
too
many
unnecessary
sequences
that
deserve
to
be
chopped.
The
songs
composed
by
D
Imman
are
forgettable.
The
background
score,
on
the
other
hand,
is
fine.
Pros:
Jayam
Ravi’s
performance
Cons:
Preachy,
cliched
storytelling
with
overdosage
of
patriotism
Weak
characterisations
Bad
song
placements
Verdict
Bhoomi
is
a
tiresome,
preachy
social
drama
that
serves
Tamil
cinema’s
all
much-loved
cliches
in
a
half-baked
narrative,
with
overdosage
of
patriotism.
Watch
it
only
if
you
are
a
die-hard
fan
of
Jayam
Ravi.
