Movie Review: Bhoomi (2017)

Box Office: Flop

SDIt’s A revenge drama that centers on the relationship between a father and daughter.

In this Omung Kumar’s emotional thriller, Arun (Sanjay Dutt) and Bhoomi (Aditi Rao Hydari) are a sweet ‘papa-bitiya’ jodi living in Agra who find happiness in the smallest of the things like cooking food for each other or even a head massage. But their world turns upside down when Bhoomi gets raped one day before her marriage. After several ‘court ke chakkar’ where the girl’s character certificate is discussed including her virginity (which has become so common in films), Arun decides to take matters in his hands, when he realises they will not get justice in the court of law.
