Sanjay Dutt has made a comeback with the release of Bhoomi, and the movie has been getting some positive reviews from both celebs as well as the critics.
A special screening of the film was held in Mumbai, and it has already been released in some parts of the Gulf. A number of celebrities, after watching Bhoomi, took to Twitter to applaud the film.
The celebs have been calling it a great film that deserves all the appreciation. According to the viewers, both Sanjay Dutt and Aditi Rao Hydari have given stellar performances. Sharad Kelkar, the antagonist, also is being praised for his performance.
Bhoomi has a strong plot, they say, along with good dose of emotions and action. Omung Kumar's direction is also getting special mention in the reviews. The best aspects of Bhoomi are apparently the performance of the actors, its story and dialogues.
The movie is about the fight of a girl and her father against some powerful people, who do everything possible to destroy them, after raping her. This is the first movie of Sanjay after his release from jail. While the actor's fans had missed him for long, Bhoomi is touted as the best comeback movie for Sanjay. However, there are some who termed the film as quite an average.

Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News said: "And Dutt's transformation as an intimidating, imposing father who will avenge his daughter's rape, reeks of patriarchy. Even the method used to exact revenge is uninspiring. It's might over mind. There's nothing remotely redeeming about this film. Watch this at your own risk."
Meena Iyer of the Times of India said: "Watch Bhoomi for Dutt. He's from that era of larger-than-life heroes who get you to whistle even when he is killing people. You may not approve of his thirst for blood but you can't fault his swagger.Aditi is also remarkable, first as the stuttering, sweet girl and later as the woman seeking revenge."
Udita Jhunjhunwala of Firstpost said: "Bhoomi is better dressed, better filmed and better performed than the old-fashioned revenge drama it actually is. And the big differentiator is that this film has Dutt showing us that his wrinkles have their own stories to tell. While the idea of an eye-for-an-eye and taking the law into one's hands is hard to justify, Dutt's performance is affecting. He's tender, he's tormented and helpless, and when he's vengeful, you feel his pain."
Kunal Guha of Mumbai Mirror said: "Making a comeback, Dutt is in top form and conveys his broken father with just enough creases on his forehead. Aditi Rao Hydari renders a pleasant face on screen but struggles in expressing her Bhoomi's muddled state of mind. What sets this film aside is that it suggests the idea that death cannot be the ultimate form of revenge."
