Bhoomi is a revenge drama, co-starring Aditi Rao Hydari and Sharad Kelkar - third of its kind this year after Raveena Tandon's Maatr and Sridevi's MOM. "Sanjay Dutt, in Bhoomi, replaces the angry mother figure with a provoked patriarch pushed to the wall by a crime against his daughter," Saibal Chatterjee wrote in his review for NDTV. He gave the film 1-star rating and said: "Even if you are in the mood to support Sanjay Dutt's 'comeback' film, Bhoomi is best given a wide berth. The actor definitely deserved better than this mangled mess of a movie. Bhoomi is an unmitigated cinematic boo-boo, a sad apology of an anti-rape movie." Bhoomi is directed by Omung Kumar, for whom Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "In Bhoomi, he is stuck in a sludgy, slippery puddle that only gets deeper and messier as he bears down on it without let."
After Bhoomi, Sanjay Dutt signed up for films such as Munna Bhai 3, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 and Malang.
