Bhooloham has been critically acclaimed for its top-notch direction and continues to be referred by the critics to watch it for the extraordinary work of Jaya Ram in the title role. The lead female role by Trisha was formerly approached by Amala Paul and Nayanthara.
Bhooloham is officially inspired by Madhan, an Asian boxing champion. The movie also went through delay during its production period after receiving a stay order from the Indian Overseas Bank due to lack of loan repayment by the producer, Aascar Ravichandran.
This Tamil sports action film follows a story where Bhooloham and Arumugam, two boxers, are entitled to a rivalry. Deepak Saha, played by Prakash Raj, takes advantage of this opportunity and tries to make a profit out of this.
