Looks like 2017 is the year of rape-revenge thrillers be it Raveena Tandon starrer ‘Maatr’or Sridevi’s ‘MOM’ but unlike the previous two where a mother takes revenge for her daughter, Bhoomi explores the wrath of a father.

STORY: Arun Sachdeva(Sanjay Dutt) is a shoemaker from Agra. A single parent to his only daughter Bhoomi(Aditi Rao Hydari) he shares a loving relationship with his betu(he calls Bhoomi by that name)who is an educated, independent & working girl who often returns home late. But just a day before her wedding Bhoomi is gang-raped by Dhauli (Sharad Kelkar) and his gang of three. The father and daughter are shattered for a while but they then plan a revenge!

REVIEW: Making a comeback almost after three years, Sanjay Dutt is in full form and gives a solid performance as a broken father who’s daughter is raped a day before her wedding. But alas! The plot is so weak and flawed that it makes us difficult to remain glued to the seats for two hours. You will love Arun and Bhoomi’s doting father-daughter relationship on screen. He cooks her dinner and gives her a head massage. While she dyes his hair, and argues why the ganesh arti has the line’ baanjhan ko putr det’ and not putri instead! However their sweet banter too is not enough to save this weak and flawed movie. And yes, there is also a Sunny Leone’s item number ‘trippy trippy’ which is also not used well by the director!
