Boomerang Movie - Boomerang Movie Review

In a fire accident Shiva (Atharvaa Murali) gets his face burned, we hope you can imagine how that looks, yeah terrible. But there is nothing for us to fear as our hero has medical assistance. A doctor suggests Shiva to undergo face transformation surgery after which he says he can restart his life. But where will they go for a face donor? Yeah, you got that right. There is a patient on the verge of dying in the same hospital and the patient’s mother gets ready to donate her son’s face.

Now in to a new face and life, all the actor gets is more problems. Shiva is forced to deal with the troubles that his new face brings him.

Although Tamil audience has seen the concept of face transplantation in Puthiya Mugam, director Kannan has modernized the concept. There is a scene in the movie where Naan Kadavul fame Motta Rajendran says to Sathish that he came to know about the term ‘short term memory loss’ only through Gajini. So thanks to Tamil cinema as now we know about short term memory loss through Gajini and now about face transplantation through Boomerang. Otherwise it would have been a big battle to figure out or even come across these terms.

Atharvaa, as usual has done justice to the role, while Sathish has played a spoiler and fails to do what he was roped in to do. Megha Akash, seems unnecessary for the script. The presence of RJ Balaji is a big plus for the film as the scenes involving Atharvaa and RJ Balaji keeps the story going at places, where the audience feel little tedious.

The beginning of the film sets a good tempo for the film to travel in but the director chose to divert the plot towards corporate hate and essayed his frustrations over the system. While the intentions are good the way of penning it down and narration fails to make an impact and sinks what otherwise could have been an excellent movie.
