Critic Reviews for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

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.

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.'

Extremely disappointing.

Super Reviewer

Farhan Akhtar both runs and acts his heart out in this rather long yet triumphant recounting of Milkha Singh's struggle as an athlete.

This is an incredible movie! If a bit long and dramatic by Hollywood standards, it makes you think about what it means to be a great person and a great athlete - very inspiring!
