We have seen many films recently on the subject of rape and the atrocities against women and this film is no different but works because of the excellent performance of Sanjay Dutt as a loving father Arun Sachdev who runs a small footwear shop in Agra but is very kind and loving to his only daughter Bhoomi (Aditi Rao Hydari) who is raped brutally by an all powerful tough guy of their village played by Sharad Kelkar and his men who get away scot-free after Bhoomi is much maligned in the courts by the defence lawyers but Sachdev and Bhoomi are harassed by society and their neighbors and their only friend is Shekhar Suman and Sanjay Dutt in his true action star style wreaths revenge on all the perpetrators of crime on his daughter. Oomung Kumar seems to be inspired by films like Taken, Death Wish, I Spit on your grave , Lipstick, Aaj Ki Aawaz. And the recent Mom and Maatr and Pink, and the Henri Denker novel Outrage. Sanjay Dutt stages a comeback after his tough times and emerges victorious. He is excellent in the emotional scenes and very good in the action scenes. Aditi Rao Hydari as Bhoomi gets a meaty role and does justice to it with great histrionics. Sharad Kelkar makes a good bad man in his Haryanvi style lingo. Shekhar Kuman returns to the big screen after a while and does his role aptly. Sidhanth Gupta as Bhoomi’s fiancée has a good presence and acts well. The cinematography and editing is first-rate. The music is moody and catchy as well as a Sunny Leone number will draw in the masses. The dialogues are very powerful. But overall its old wine in a new bottle. See it for Sanjay Dutt alone.
