Mini Review – Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is a story signifying the contribution of the Flying Sikh Milkha Singh , a not so media hyped athlete . Prasoon Joshi & Rakeysh OmPrakash Mehra have done an amazing job in scripting and filming the entire life and struggle of Milkha Singh on the silver screen.
The story is very well crafted without missing any major turning points of Milkha Singh’s life. Right from Childhood to a teenager and from there an Army officer to an athlete , all the stages are just an master piece of film making. The cinematography is amazing (Binod Pradhan has used almost all possible camera techniques in this movie 😛 , but amazingly shot movie) . The direction is excellent (full marks to Rakeysh sir here 😀 ) . Performances is zabardast by each and every character. Farhan Akhtar nails it bigtime. His hardwork on the character and the hard workout sessions clearly shows here. (chalo! Pehla best actor ka nominee mil gaya for 2013 😀 ) . Other supporting artists viz Pawan Malhotra , Yograj Singh (apne Yuvi k daddyG) , Prakash Raj & Divya Dutta are simply class apart (we do have really talented character artist in Bollywood – feeling Proud 😀 ) . Sonam Kapoor has a very small role (sirf paani ki baltiya bhartey hui dikhai hai 😛 ) Music is excellent, Shankar-Eshaan-Loy does it again. Right from Zinda to Mere Yaar to Bhaag Milkha , all are excellent (seems like Coke Studios has gone into mainstream cinemas .. sab artist wahi waley hai :P) . Do listen to Zinda & Bhaag Milkha (Rock Version) mast Patriotism wali feeling aa jati hai sunn ke.
So , overall it is one of the best Biopics made till date. The only glitch is that story is bit longer but very well made.
3 and half stars from me for this epicness and kudos to Farhan Akhtar , simply zabardast . A grand salute to Milkha Singh G for making India so proud 😀 .
Go and watch it now!!!
