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."
