Boomerang, a movie that is streaming on ZEE5, is one that deals with many layers of issues. Although it refrains from divulging deep into some of the matters, it does justice to some of the prevalent problems by giving us some intricate details into the issue. In the movie, We see  Atharvaa, playing the roles of Siva and Sakthi,  while Sathish and RJ Balaji handle the element of comedy in the first and second halves respectively. Opposite to Atharvaa, we see Megha Akash and Indhuja playing his love interests.

Watch the problems that arise in the life of Siva, after he undergoes surgery.

The movie starts with the accident that Siva is a part of because of which he has to undergo a face transplant surgery. Thus, giving him a new identity of Shakti, which also forces him to tackle with a new set of problems that are not his own but of Shakti’s. Now, this may seem like the classic issue of the mistaken identity, that has been experimented and explored by many of the renowned filmmakers, the way this movie handles it is refreshing to watch.

Also, what must be appreciated is the efforts that Atharvaa and the filmmakers invested in creating the scene where we see the burn injuries that Siva has faced. To some, it may be gruesome to look at, but what should be recognised is the effect that it created with Atharvaa’s prosthetic make-up and the filmmaker’s dedication to perfecting the medical procedure.

The pace at which the movie moves in the first half may seem a bit slow and but eventually, it picks up pace and manages to deliver an intriguing storyline. As in the second half of the movie we see the movie talking about the plight of the farming community in Tirchy, which mostly resonate the issues faced by the general agrarian community. It also gives us a glimpse of conflicts that arise as a result of corrupt governing bodies and officials.
