Review By : Movie Run Time : 2 hours Genre : Drama

Production: Sujatha Vijayakumar (Home Movie Makers) Cast: Jayam Ravi, Nidhhi Agerwal Direction: Lakshman Music: D. Imman Cinematography: Dudley Editing: John Abraham Distribution: Disney+Hotstar

Perhaps it has to do with Jayam Ravi’s 25th film or it’s just the hero introduction, but right from the word go, we see him lionised. A NASA scientist, he has not only developed agriculture on Mars but has also invented a tablet that can help you breathe since Mars only operates at 4 per cent oxygen with the rest being you-know-what or rather we-are-told.

We usually see our heroes return to roots in our movies only when there is a purpose, say, for example, to vote. But here, Bhoominathan is back because once he goes off to Mars, he can’t be back for three-four years at least and this is also time for the romantic track to get some mileage.

Not only do the romantic portions lack freshness, but the BGM is also unnecessarily loud. And Nidhhi Agerwal is your typical commercial heroine while Saranya Ponvannan as Bhoomi’s mother is wasted.

In the beginning, the film lacks coherence and jumps arcs too quickly – we have Ravi talking about his work, then bam, he is on his way to India and soon the romantic portions start, and then things take a melodramatic turn.

A couple of songs, in the beginning, come too quickly. The villain’s character played by Ronit Roy is stereotypical and is the usual corporate-exploiting-poor-innocent-naïve-doesn’t-know-much-farmers. Another lifeless Bollywood import with the usual poor lip-sync. Radharavi appears as a politician in yet-another-done-to-death-mush-we-couldn’t-care-less-for.

A few of the dialogues spouted by Thambi Ramiah are effective (when your wife chides you saying being a watchman is better) while the rest have a melodramatic tone about them. Things do take a turn for the better in the film when Bhoomi comes to know how much water is being used and by whom but things soon fall back into the first gear.

After a long time, Nidhi makes an appearance during a song and soon enough disappears. D Imman doesn’t seem to be weaving his magic this time with the rest of the technical departments being adequate.

Much was expected of Lakshman who had penned Romeo Juliet and Bogan in the past, perhaps he could have come up with something better had he left ‘message’ off the table and focused on a glossy, commercial entertainer, which seem more up his alley.

Verdict: Despite a spirited performance from Ravi and a much needed social plot, Bhoomi falls short of engagement.
