Critic Reviews for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (6)

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Jul 11, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The way the movie strikes its chosen couple of notes resoundingly, making clear what makes Singh run.

    Jul 11, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Often an engrossing example of the sweeping, stirring biography.
