The teaser of actor Jayam Ravi’s next film Bhoomi has just dropped. The film helmed by director Lakshman is being bankrolled by Sujataa Vijaykumar’s Home Movie Makers which also commissioned director Karthik Thangavel’s Adanga Maru also with Jayam Ravi in the lead. This is the actor’s third outing with director Lakshman, after Romeo Juliet and Bogan.
Sand, tillage, wells, and crop fields along with a scraggly haired Jayam Ravi struggling for a group of farmers and their livelihood… This is what the teaser is all about. We even find happy glimpses of Saranya Ponvanan and Nidhhi Agerwal. There is a lot of resemblance to the teaser of his Adanga Maru, be it the presence of the national flag, or the immolated individual or even railing against cops. Maybe a sentiment for the actor?
The makers took to Twitter to release the teaser:

While Nidhhi Agerwal debuts in Kollywood with the film, comedian Sathish is reportedly featuring in an important role. D Imman will be composing music, Chennai Express fame Dudley will be cranking the camera and G Durairaj will helm art. While John has edited the entire film, Ruben who is known for his trailer/teaser edits has edited this teaser. Stunt Shiva will be choreographing action sequences with Brinda and Sheriff choreographing dance. The rest of the cast is yet to be announced.
A source privy to the film told Silverscreen that the movie deals with agriculture and its collapsing stature because of the corporate world. The film was originally titled Sarvaadhikaari reportedly but was later rechristened Bhoomi.
The team completed shooting the opening song ‘Thamizhan Endru Sollada’ recently, choreographed by Brinda master and her assistant Prashanna Babu. Imman had also announced a while ago that he had roped in Yogi B to render a song with lyrics by Madhan Karky.
Recently, the makers announced that Sony Music had bagged the audio rights of the film.
