Bhaag Milkha Bhaag Review: Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is a biopic directed by Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra, starring Farhan Akthar and Sonam Kapoor. The film revolves around the life story of Milkha Singh.
Everyone who is associated with this film has done a GREAT job. The directors, the writers, the actors, EVERYONE. In the first look of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Farhan Akthar looks shockingly like Milkha Singh, and his acting has showed that not only is he a GREAT actor, but he can mostly do any role by now. His portrayal of Milkha Singh was outstanding. The film starts off a BIT slow, but you manage to keep with its pace. Inspite of the film being 3h10m, you never feel bored; instead, you find yourself stuck in the world of Milkhaji- poverty, love and speed. The replay value of this film is very high. Its very entertaining. The acting, as said above, is very good. Other than Farhan Akthar delivering an award-winning performance, every other actor did a great job. Sonam Kapoor didn’t have much to do in the screenplay, but she did it quite well.
The film does depend on each person’s likes and tastes. A person who enjoys watching the so-called ‘masala’ flicks, may not enjoy this film due to its different type of story compared to other films. Also, people who can’t sit in cinemas for a VERY long time may get annoyed at the fact that its a 3h10m film. But Overall, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is an award-winning film. It shows us the life of Milkha Singh through his very own eyes and deserves a standing ovation for its performances, writing and direction. Truly Inspiring.
