Overlong and stuffed with too many catchy but unnecessary songs, this worthy film is nevertheless indicative of a more sensible and sensitive side of Bollywood.
The conflation of sports and politics in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag always feels strained, with Singh's story remaining most absorbing as a story of personal -- rather than national -- triumph.
Farhan Akhtar's intelligent performance is a highlight of the film.
There are triumphs, both in front of and behind the camera, but they often get overshadowed by a story that tries to do too much.
The way the movie strikes its chosen couple of notes resoundingly, making clear what makes Singh run.
Often an engrossing example of the sweeping, stirring biography.
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is easily one of the best mainstream films to come out of Bollywood this year.
It's a solid biopic drama one that doesn't unnecessarily glorify its subject.
Mehra is brilliant at his craft; he infuses realism into drama, and explores characters so deeply and sensitively through tragedy and triumph, that it sparks an emotional deluge.
There is a compelling biopic hidden somewhere in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, about an athlete with a traumatic childhood facing up to and conquering the ghosts of his past. But the overwritten film meanders aimlessly.
It is a blessing that this film was made and the inspiring story of India's greatest sporting hero told to a generation who might otherwise never have known the legend of 'The Flying Sikh.'
For a film about sprinting... Bhaag Milkha Bhaag moves at a snail's pace.
