Jayam Ravi’s Bhoomi to have OTT release?

Jayam Ravi’s Bhoomi is the actor’s 25th film. The film could be the next big Tamil film heading for an OTT release. A lot of films have been releasing directly on OTT platforms since theatres have been shut due to the pandemic.

It’s been a few months since theatres have been closed and many producers have decided to release their film on OTT platform. The producers of Jayam Ravi’s Bhoomi seem to be going that way.

While the filmmakers are yet to make an official announcement, sources have confirmed that the streaming rights have been already sold. The film marks the Ravi’s reunion with director Lakshman after Romeo Juliet and Bogan. It also marks the Tamil debut of Niddhi Aggarwal and also stars Sathish.

Ravi, who was last seen playing a man who wakes up from a coma after many years and comes to terms with his life in Comali, will be seen playing a farmer in this film. The entire project is tipped to be set against a village backdrop and Ravi will be seen in a very different avatar.

Last year, Jayam Ravi announced that his 25th film, Bhoomi, will be directed by Lakshman, with whom he had earlier worked in two projects – Romeo Juliet and Bogan. The film was supposed to release in the beginning of this year.

However it got postponed due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. The recent tweet from the production house led to speculations around the film’s release. Apparently, the team has initiated talks with a popular OTT platfom to sell the streaming rights of the film. However, nothing has been finalised yet.
