Bhoomi, the 25th film of Jayam Ravi has become the latest film to fall prey to piracy. The rural entertainer has been leaked on Telegram and other piracy based websites. Bhoomi was released today (January 14, 2021) on Disney+ Hotstar on the special occasion of Pongal.
The film was earlier scheduled to hit the screens on May 1, 2020, however, the release was later postponed owing to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown.

Helmed by Lakshman, Bhoomi marks the third collaboration of the director and Ravi after Romeo Juliet (2015) and Bogan (2017). The actor as Bhoominathan aka Bhoomi will be seen playing a young man who leaves behind a career as an astronaut, to fight the wrongdoings of corporates and politicians and to support agriculture.
