Critics Review


This NASA Farmer Is A Superhero Whose Superpower Is To Test Our Tolerance!

To ensure that we don't restrict Bhoomi to being a Tamilian, we enter into the Vande Mataram zone. Now the hero wears a T shirt with the words 'Thamizhan' on it. And every few minutes he keeps raising the Vande Mataram slogan. I cannot recollect such a multifaceted hero in recent times. He is an Indian. He is a Tamilian. He is a farmer. He is a scientist. He is a cheek squisher. And above all he can listen to Richard Child speaking in Tamil without battling an eyelid. He has many more facets but I do not want to reveal more spoilers. (more)

Jayam Ravi's film is a potpourri of ill-researched ideas punctuated with loud screams

It's an assault on the senses - a potpourri of ill-researched ideas, thrown together with an extra helping of salt and shouting.(more)

A poorly-conceived formula film

More intolerable than the tone deaf approach to the film's writing is the highly inaccurate content that happens in the post credits scene. As Boominathan engages Richard Child in a conversation (over phone, not different this time too), he tells him he is about to "develop autism" after ingesting a spiked drink; and Roy duly acts out a seizure. There cannot be a better example that exposes Lakshman's half-baked understanding of things.(more)

A poorly made movie

Lakshman has some really good ideas for an educational and inspiring movie. But, it is a great shame that neither does he have the required understanding of the matter at hand nor the skillset to turn all the information and statistics into a compelling drama. (more)

Bhoomi is hardly compelling

The irony of a movie with an anti-corporate message releasing on an OTT platform owned by a corporate is hard to miss!(more)
