Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
Award-winning filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra (writer/director of the BAFTA-nominated Rang De Basanti starring Aamir Khan) returns with his newest film BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG telling the true story of the "Flying Sikh" - world champion runner and Olympian Milkha Singh. Played by acclaimed actor Farhan Akhtar, Singh overcame the bloody massacre of his family, civil war during the India-Pakistan partition, and homelessness to become one of India's most iconic athletes.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
"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."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"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."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"The way the movie strikes its chosen couple of notes resoundingly, making clear what makes Singh run."
‑ Nicolas Rapold, New York Times
"Thrilling epic true story of the Sikh who surmounted the horrors of 1947 violent partition. . .via Bollywood catchy music and dance, featuring a terrific central performance."
‑ Nora Lee Mandel,
"Often an engrossing example of the sweeping, stirring biography."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Exhilarating entertainment that is a great introduction to both Bollywood and the saga of the heroic Sikh people."
‑ Louis Proyect,
