BHOOMI REVIEW: Distasteful as it could sound, rape and retribution are dominating Bollywood. After Maatr and Mother, Omung Kumar, who confirmed a spark with Mary Kom, appears to have fallen into the entice of constructing formulation. And whereas each filmmaker argues that films on rapes are ‘socially-relevant’, you retain asking your self — is all of the gore on display screen justified?
Right here, our very personal Arun and Bhoomi are a doting father-daughter group residing in Agra. They tug at your heartstrings with their chirpy baap-beti routine of cooking meals, colouring beards and brushing hair. Nevertheless, after a degree the bittu-beti endearments rankle.
Coming to the core plot, when Bhoomi will get raped only a day earlier than her marriage ceremony, you recognize which route the movie will take. The insensitive cops, the lame public prosecutor, the even lamer defence and the entire court-room drama the place it has grow to be trendy to debate the heroine’s virginity makes you wish to scream. One and all are authorities on India’s rape statistics and the heinous act is so distastefully mentioned that it virtually knocks you useless.
However prefer it’s stated, each cloud has a silver residing; Bhoomi has Sanjay Dutt. Returning to the marquee after his incarceration, the actor wears the strains of his face with confidence. You’ll be able to inform instantly that the lion has aged however he is bought terrific display screen presence.
Aditi seems weak because the stuttering, candy woman and later tries carrying a harder manner because the avenging angel. Sharad is an excessive amount of the caricatured villain from the 80s, mouthing over-the-top strains. The general writing is clunky. Artur Zurawski’s digicam work is environment friendly. Sachin-Jigar have composed a few foot-tapping numbers, which shouldn’t have recall however when they’re taking part in, you end up grooving.
Watch Bhoomi for Dutt. He is from that period of larger-than-life heroes who get you to applaud even when he turns a killing machine. You might not approve of his bloodlust, however you may’t fault his swagger.
