Coffee Bloom is all about Dev Anand (Arjun Mathur), who is heart broken thanks to his lady love Ankita (Sugandha Garg).
Dev wants to renounced the world but then his mother’s sudden death brings him back to Coorg. Dev is shocked to meet Ankita who is now married to Srinivas (Mohan Kapoor), a coffee plantation owner.
Srinivas, unaware about Dev and Ankita’s past hires him to work on his coffee plantation in Coorg.
Another thing Srinivas doesn’t know is that the fact that the plantations that he now own’s was Dev’s ancestral property till he sold it. Wow!! That’s so cool and insipid at the same time.
In all of this, there is a sex worker (Ishwari Bose), whose character, perhaps has been inspired by the legendary Chandramukhi, but it just seems terribly useless.
Moving on, Srinivas leaves for a couple of days and Dev grabs hold of Ankita, kisses her and urges her to leave her husband to start a life again with him and not feel guilty about it.
Guess the makes and the characters forget that it’s been almost thirteen years that they parted ways. Never mind!!!
Coffee Bloom does not move at all, it actually crawls towards it’s end and the moment you see the credits go up, you feel a sense of freedom as it’s time to go home and have some coffee; but then you are off coffee as it has just bloomed all over you.
Coffee Bloom is one film that I presume has been made only for the people who worked on the project, because they are the only ones who could have sat through the entire film.
Also one feels sorry for a talented actor like Mohan Kapoor being wasted in this one.
Anyways, I surprised myself as I sat through this one and mind it I am a coffee lover.
I am amazed at Manu Warrier for putting together a film like Coffee Bloom, as it is pseudo, pretentious and unwatchable. Coffee Bloom is all about ...0.5
