On the occasion of World No Tobacco Day on May 31, Hombale Films, the production house behind director Pawan Kumar’s Dhoomam, had made the Fahadh Faasil-led film available to audiences for free. The Malayalam original version of the film was hosted on the banner’s official YouTube page, where it has notched up 1.7 million views to date.

Dhoomam had earlier failed to find a place on the more popular platforms and landed on Apple TV+ on TVOD (rental basis) instead. Now, the Kannada-dubbed version of the film is also on Hombale Films’ YouTube page. If you missed the film in theatres and do not have an Apple TV+ subscription, well, it’s here for free now.

Talking about Dhoomam’s theatrical failure, Fahadh had said that it had a good concept, but flawed execution. In fact, he had gone to the extent of saying that it was a story that should not have been made into a film, even though it sounded fantastic on paper.

Fahadh had played a sales executive for a tobacco company, who gets caught in a revenge saga and has to then undertake a bunch of tasks to save his wife from literally blowing up. Well, she has an explosive device implanted in her throat, which will time out and kill her if he doesn’t hold up his end of the bargain and she doesn’t smoke a cigarette every few minutes.

The core message of Dhoomam was about the evils of active and passive smoking, but as a smoker himself, Fahadh felt that he was in no position to preach. Incidentally, Dhoomam is a script that Pawan had pitched as a Kannada film more than a decade ago, but could not make then because no one would back it.

However, when his film with Hombale Films, Dvitva, did not take off owing to the tragic demise of Puneeth Rajkumar, the banner asked him for a script that would work for Fahadh and he gave them Dhoomam.
