Aditi Rao Hydari to receive Dadasaheb Phalke Award for 'Bhoomi'





Aditi Rao Hydaro added another trophy to her achievements as she will receive Dada Saheb Phalke excellence award 2018 for the Best Leading Lady (Critics Award) for her memorable performance in 'Bhoomi'. 

Aditi has been garnering huge about of praises for her effective portrayal in 'Bhoomi' by the critics and the audiences.

The award ceremony is scheduled on April 21, 2018 . It will be attended by producers, directors, distributors and exhibitors amongst many from the film fraternity.

Here's a quick review of the film: 

Bhoomi is a revenge drama that tries a lot to be bold, brave and advocate feminism but wants to stay in the comfort zone of a typical Bollywood mainstream film. The result is stereotypes, over-the-top melodrama and a predictable narrative.

But here’s the good news: Baba is back!! Sanjay Dutt fans will be more than happy to see him onscreen. Interestingly, Dutt, returns to the screen after three years, plays an age-appropriate role in the film directed by Oomung Kumar. And he is in form!

Bhoomi is the story of a father-daughter duo (Sanjay Dutt’s Arun and Bhoomi played by Aditi Rao Hydari) that lead a simple life when a sudden turn of events shake their world.

The initial banter between Sanjay and Aditi is syrupy sweet and you already know that half of the scenes will be later incorporated in montages to relay the pain. But, despite being high on melodrama, the emotional scenes manage to convey the love Sanjay and Aditi share onscreen. Sanjay is a single parent, a doting father and Aditi is the cute-but-motherly daughter that often chides him for his drinking habits.

The main theme of the movie is the plight of a person trying to raise a daughter amidst prejudices of rape, like during Ganesha arti, for instance. These often seem forced but given that they are sparsely sprayed over the sequences, we manage to bear with them for the sake of the message intended.

The twist comes when the daughter is gang-raped and the perpetrators are let off at the end of a trial in which the woman is humiliated repeatedly. But they are your average family that tries to pick up the pieces and get their life back in order.

The climax, the courtroom sequence, justifies the crime, the prejudices, the indignity that is laced with it and the didatic one-liners make the movie all-the-more relatable and realistic.
