Boomerang, that has Atharvaa, Megha Akash, Indhuja, RJ Balaji, Satish, and others is director Kannan's seventh directorial.

It deals with the lives of two different people, who come together because of a fatal incident and one person’s identity gets altered. The life ahead, and solving the mystery behind the death of the other person is what Boomerang is all about. This unique premise deserves praise.

There is a conversation between Sathish and Motta Rajendran, where Rajendran says he knows about short term memory loss because of the movie Ghajini, and he doesn't know about face transplant. Thanks to Boomerang, people will now know about face transplant.

The director has managed a proper take off but fails to maintain the pace in the first half. In spite of Sathish's effort to engage us with his one-liners, the short-lived first half is less interesting and seems flat. The second half is where the plot actually takes proper shape. The flashback of the character Sakthi (also played by Atharvaa) is well told with neat definitions and good pace. RJ Balaji and Atharvaa take turns in making these parts interesting and strong.

Although there are good things to appreciate, we feel like there is a lack of reality at some plot points. Villain’s reveal seems like it is finely handled, but fails to give impact us mainly because of the very short screen time of the character. The scenes where the friends discuss about becoming farmers as soon as they get sacked from an IT company, seemed artificial and unjustified. 

The cinematographer has done a pleasant job not only in dreamy song sequences but in most frames like the short film and the village sequences. The VFX during a pivotal landslide portion could have been way better. The music director has done a decent job in shifting the mood of the plot wherever needed and provided good support to the plot.

R.Kannan provokes some really good thoughts, almost creates nice impact but most of it falls short due to improper packaging. The movie explains the problems, fairly inspires you, says what can be done but fails in giving a practical solution. Overall Boomerang gives a good message, is novel, but there is a sense of incompleteness that makes us feel like the movie hasn't achieved what it sets out to do.

Verdict: Boomerang is watchable for its attempt to address an important social issue in an interesting plot.
