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.

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.'

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's an effectively made (if still overlong) film, one that elevates a single athlete's story into legend as a way into his country's history. Just don't confuse this particular legend for fact.

Exhilarating entertainment that is a great introduction to both Bollywood and the saga of the heroic Sikh people.

Farhan Akhtar's performance here puts his still-young acting career on equal weight with his justly celebrated one as a writer, director, and producer.

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.
