Bhaag Milkha Bhaag REVIEWS

A Successful Run!

By Jaidev Hemmady, MovieTalkies.com, 12 July 2013 3.5 / 5

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag Movie Review-In Short:
The film deals with the life and struggles of the legendary Indian athlete Milkha Singh

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag Movie Review-Verdict:
A larger than life film, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is a fitting tribute to one of India's best sportsman.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag Movie Review-Story Plot And Direction:
Born to a poor farmer in Punjab, Milkha (Farhan Akhtar) fights against all odds-including the Partition, poverty, crime and his own demons to emerge as a legend- The Flying Sikh. Milkha finds supporters in his sister Isri Kaur (Divya Dutta), his army instructor (Prakash Raj) and his coaches played by Pavan Malhotra and Yograj Singh.

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who gave us Rang De Basanti, proves once again that he is a master story-teller with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. It is quite evident that a lot of research and hard work went behind bringing this story to the silver screen. The film has been shot well too and the scenes where Milkha trains for the races is sure to give you the kind of adrenaline rush that you got while watching Sly Stallone work out in the Rocky series.

However, as a biopic, the film has several flaws. Mehra seems to rely too much on melodrama, which is a drawback. Unlike Paan Singh Tomar, which told the gripping story of an athlete's life and his struggles without too much of drama, thus keeping it life-like, Mehra turns Milkha into a larger-than-life figure, which somehow dilutes the effect. When Milkha runs atop a speeding train, he seems more like a swash-buckling 70s hero than a real-life figure.

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy Back With A Bang

By Joginder Tuteja, MovieTalkies.com, 10 June 2013 3.5 / 5

To begin with, one isn't really sure what to expect from the music of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. In fact the very fact that there are as many as eight songs in the album surprises you since in a theme based film with sports as a central element, one expected three to four songs at maximum. However as the soundtrack flows, one realises that Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy along with Prasoon Joshi have come together with the kind of music that would give a solid push to the narrative of this Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra film.

The album kick-starts on a sober note with a 100 second long Gurbani which has Daler Mehndi singing in a manner that only he can. The sound of violin in the background gives this rather quiet pace a very soothing feel and one actually wishes that there was much more in the offering than eventually what plays in the audio.

The album changes gears immediately after with Siddharth Mahadevan, who is Shankar Mahadevan's son, taking centre-stage for an all-important number Zinda. A terrific song by all means which had made a quick impression when just a couple of lines were heard months back as a part of the film's teaser, it maintains a good momentum right through it's three and a half minute duration. Siddharth is further aided by the fact that Prasoon Joshi's lyrics are as meaningful as they get. Moreover, with the composer trio bringing on the kind of arrangements that they excel in, the end result is extremely effective and meaningful.

Javed Bashir is the singer who is roped in for Mera Yaar, a Sufi affair. A situational number that should go well with the film's theme, it yet again works due to the fact that it isn't corrupted by any commercial ingredients that would have possibly diluted the end result. Final outcome is a well sung number that one looks forward to seeing as the film's narrative unfolds.
