Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...every cloud has a silver living; Bhoomi has Sanjay Dutt. Returning to the marquee after his incarceration, the actor wears the lines of his face with confidence.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...a decent entertainer with power packed performance by Sanjay Dutt.

    Critic rating (?)

  • All said and done, though, Dutt owns this movie, with every scene he’s in.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • Inevitably, a cheerful opening sequence is followed by the heinous act that leads to much shared trauma. And once all else fails, the victims devise a way to seek justice on their own terms. Bhoomi is no different.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Call it eagerness or the pressure to make a befitting statement on womanhood, the director Omung along with his writer Raaj Shaandilyaa find themselves jumbled in the examples set by Pink, Mom and the deja vu becomes unavoidable.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • While the film looks like a slick product, it doesn't get the emotion and drama right. A jaded story and some lacklustre writing make it look tired and unconvincing.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is your regular rape-revenge drama, but only much louder, with better camerawork and production design.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is better dressed, better filmed and better performed than the old-fashioned revenge drama it actually is.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is not quite the re-entry to Bollywood that Dutt's fans had been expecting.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Run-of-the-mill revenge drama that tries very hard, but doesn't engage at all.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a revenge drama that tries a lot to be bold, brave and advocate feminism but wants to stay in the comfort zone of a typical Bollywood masala film. The result is stereotypes, over-the-top melodrama and a predictable story.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Bhoomi lags far behind Kaabil and Mom which were based on a similar subject.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • The film might not bore you but it is certainly not one of the most interesting revenge sagas made in recent times. 

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Dutt’s face is kept in close-up for much of the film, and there is still power in it. This is an actor who can explode off the screen, given the right story. Maybe he needs something much better told to vent his anger.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • This version of avenge-your-daughter's-rape film is so gory and violent, you wonder if they're all living in some time warp. Who makes such films? And why should we watch such blood and gore?

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...Bhoomi’s blood-splattering, bone-crunching vigour is as unwelcome as the rest of this ghastly movie. 

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • Sanjay Dutt hasn’t lost his acting chops yet, rather seems to be maturing well. But why did he have to pick up a film this regressive for a return?

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • The film once again, reiterates the age-old idea, that there is always a man to save a girl, because she clearly seems helpless to do so otherwise. Oh Bollywood, when will you learn?

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • The problem with Bhoomi isn’t the loud, old-fashioned storytelling. It’s that it finds nothing interesting to tell.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is an unmitigated cinematic boo-boo, a sad apology of an anti-rape movie.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is not just a bad film, it is a bad film trying to be many good films.
