Boomerang Movie Review


A complicated surgery is performed to Siva, who suffers from severe injuries on his face. Doctors decide that swapping his face with that of Sakthi (Atharvaa) is the only option to rectify his facial deformities.

After he gets discharged from the hospital post the surgery, Siva gets attacked by some strangers. As attempts to bump him off take place again and again, Siva decides to find out the roots of Sakthi.

To achieve the mission, he goes to Tiruchirapalli along with his girlfriend (Megha Akash) and friend Gopal (Sathish). There, he meets Maya (Indhuja), who narrates the touching story of Sakthi.

As she narrates what happened to Sakthi, Siva decides to take revenge. What follows is scenes that bat for the need to do farming, that explain the ill-effects of corportae culture and more.


Director Kannan of Jayamkondan, Kanden Kadhalai and Vanthaan Vendraan fame, whose last venture is Ivan Thanthiran starring Gautham Karthik in the lead, has come up with Boomerang which has Atharvaa Murali in a dual role.

The movie tries to strike a fine balance between entertainment and message. While providing entertainment in regular doses, it also serves message oriented scenes.

Atharvaa has performed well in two characters, while Mega Akash and Indhuja are good. Sathish and RJ Balaji provide laughter breaks amid a serious subject.

The film is technically sound. Kannan has taken up an interesting concept and has laced it up with important messages. However, while doing so, the screenplay falters somewhere, hampering the flow of the movie.
