Biopic in Bollywood is very rare. There have been few biopic which impressed the World like Paan Singh Tomar and Bhagat Singh while some were a huge disappointments like Mangal Pandey while some like Rang Rasiya never saw the day of release. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (BMB) is one such biopic which surprises the entire hindi film industry.
BMB is story of Milkha Singh portrayed by Farhan Akhtar in the film. The film deals with those incidents from the life of Milkha Singh about which the world was unaware about till now. Since it’s a biopic it’s all about Milkha Singh in and out. The film beautifully deals with the life of Milkha Singh, all the good, bad and horrible days lived by the man himself. That’s all about the story of the film.
Farhan Akhtar just blows off your mind with his flawless performance. You can’t see him even in a single frame, he has played the role with such conviction. No matter what films are coming up later this year, the trophy of Best Actor will be taken by Farhan Akhtar only. Outstanding performance. Apart from him rest all cast had less role compared to him. After Farhan it’s Divya Dutta as Isri Milkha’s sister who has done an outstanding job. Divya has very less scenes in the film but she has killed in it. Sonam Kapoor was good. Her screen space is very little but she managed to do a good job. It’s good to see Prakash Raj is a Positive role. Yograj Singh and Pawan Malhotra as Milkha’s coach were brilliant. The remaining supporting cast was very good. Overall the performances in the film were outstanding.
Rakesh Omprakash Mehra has nailed it with this one. Being a biopic he never toned down the entertainment value of the film. The film is beautifully directed. In some scenes the present and flashback in same frame is beautifully incorporated. The director has managed to get nuances right from all his actors. Direction is one big reason for film being so good. Story Screenplay and Dialogues by Prasoon Joshi is the second best thing in the film. Film being a biopic the Story and Screenplay is well written keeping in mind the like of current audience and without tampering the reality. Being a 3 hours plus film it won’t be wrong to say that editing was good. Not showing the incidents in chronological does not harm the film, in fact the way film is edited does not bother you when what comes in the film. Editing is good for one more reason that is keeping some childhood incidents in pre climax was one good move. Cinematography by Binod Pradhan is amazing. Each and every frame is outstanding. The scenes when the film goes into flashback is fantastic. The way various races are shot is again very good.
Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have composed the music and the background score for the film. The music is outstanding and the lyrics by Prasoon Joshi just make the songs more beautiful. All songs go with the theme of the film and the lyrics make the song more meaningful. In all 8 songs in the album all of them fantastic. The background score is again very good. In the last race where the sound of horse run is used just takes the scene to the different level. Music and Background Score was superb.
Overall Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is undoubtedly one of the best films ever made in the history of World Cinema. The film has been very well researched and does not give you any chance to complain in any scene. The makers have got it everything right. One word to describe the film is FLAWLESS. The film deserves to be watched by every Indian. The film gives you goose bum while watching it. The film has right dose of everything, be it romance, drama, comedy, action. The film needs to be also watched for the efforts made by the entire team. Tried a lot but could not find any flaw in the film. So here it goes….
