Movie Review: Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

This movie is about (for those who are living under a stone and never heard of Milkha Singh) Milkha Singh, who was a field and track athlete and represented India in the 1956 & 1960 Olympics. 

The producers claim that this movie is not a sports movie but a film about human spirit.

Well that they did. 

They captured the spirit of Milkha Singh to the dot, what made him run and get the famous pseudo name 'The Flying Sikh'. 

The people out there who say that we, Indians, can't get into the Olympics because of lack of infrastructure and support need to watch this movie. In the 50's & 60's if Milkha Singh could do it then so can this generation. All we need is the drive and determination to do it.

Coming to the awesome bit of the movie, i.e Farhan Akhtar. That man has done his homework and is a treat to watch on the big screen. 

I'm sure Milkha would be proud of Farhan Akhtar portraying him. Farhan was awesome. I would have been fine watching this movie even if it was in a different language all together. 

Sonam Kapoor had little or no role. Hers should have been credited as a guest appearance and nothing more. 

A special mention to the child actor, Japteg Singh, who played a younger Milkha Singh. 

All in all this a must watch for everyone. A lot of inspiration and motivation to go out and run. 

For all the women out there, its worth the money just to see Farhan!!

My rating: 4/5
