Sanjay Dutt's Bhoomi that opened in theatres on Friday, September 22, has received mixed reviews from audience across the globe.
While many have been heaping praises to Sanjay and Aditi Rao Hydari's brilliant performances, others aren't too impressed and have said the movie is not well executed.
Directed by Omung Kumar, Bhoomi marks the return of Sanjay on silver screen after his five-year jail term in connection with the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.
Bhoomi is an emotional and sensitive revenge drama that explores the relationship between a father and daughter. In the movie, Sanjay plays a doting father, who is all set to marry off his daughter (played by Aditi Rao Hydari) but then a tragic incident turns their lives upside down after which the father vows to get justice for his daughter.
The intriguing trailer had left fans of Sanjay eagerly waiting to watch him on screen. The songs Lag Ja Gale and Will You Marry Me too raised the curiosity among movie-goers.
Below is the trailer of Bhoomi:
Also starring TV star Sidhant Gupta, Shekhar Suman and Sharad Kelkar, Bhoomi has been making a huge buzz ever since its trailer released. Sidhant will be romancing Aditi in the movie.
In an exclusive interview with International Business Times, India, Sidhant opened up about working with Sanjay. "I was initially a little nervous for obvious reasons. I was actually anxious and at the same time I was looking forward to working with him, to be on the same screen as him, somebody whom I have grown up watching. But thankfully, I met him before we started shooting and he is a kind of person who makes you comfortable. At the same time, when you work with him, its very difficult to forget that he is Sanjay Dutt," he had said.
Co-produced by Bhushan and Krishan Kumar's T-Series Films and Kumar's Legend Studios, Bhoomi is clashing with Shraddha Kapoor's Haseena Parkar and Rajkummar Rao-starrer Newton.
Check out some viewers' verdicts of the Sanjay-starrer shared on Twitter. Here are the live updates of Bhoomi review by the audience:

#Bhoomi fails to impress! Wish #sanjaydutt would have chosen a better comeback film though it was a delight to watch him on silver screen!

#Bhoomi A poorly executed film based on an alarmigly relevant subject lacking the emotional connect.

#Bhoomi is unarguably the best performance of @aditiraohydari. It takes a lot of courage to play a character like Bhoomi. take a bow lady.

#Bhoomi An average first half and a strong second half with few disturbing scenes (will be good if those rules implemented in our country).
