Film critics have spoken and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is now one of the best-reviewed Indian films of 2013! Now playing in cinemas around the world, the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra-directed epic starring Farhan Akhtar as Olympian Milkha Singh has garnered praise from Hollywood and Bollywood alike:
“Beautifully shot…an engrossing example of the sweeping, stirring biography.” – Los Angeles Times
Lisa Tsering of the Hollywood Reporter praises the film and writes, “Farhan Akhtar’s intelligent performance is a highlight of the film.”
“Farhan is fantastic! Mehra is brilliant!” – 4 Stars – Times of India
Taran Adarsh gave it 4.5 Stars for Bollywood Hungama, “A handful of films sprint that extra mile beyond providing meager entertainment to its spectators. BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG is one such cinematic experience.”
Subhash K Jha loved it too, in fact he gave it 5 star and said, ‘Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag seems like a near-flawless homage to the flying spirit of India’s greatest runner!’
We here at BollySpice gave it a rave 4.5 star review saying it truly represents what Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra meant when he stated Milkha Singh wins in life.
Overwhelming praise for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag has also taken over Twitter from Bollywood’s biggest superstars including Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, and Amitabh Bachchan who said he was really under the spell of the film, just to name a few.
