Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's latest movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag got released today. Featuring Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor and Meesha Shafi in the leads, Bhaag MIlkha Bhaag has received mostly positive reviews from both the critics as well as audiences.
The movie Bhaag Milha Bhaag is an Indian biographical sports film based on the life of "Flying Sikh" Milkha Singh, an Indian athlete who was a world champion runner and an Olympian. The film chronicles the life of Singh from his childhood to achieving the iconic standing. BMB received a thumbs up from maximum number of film critics, who claim that Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is very impressive, with some overpowering performances.
On the other hand, few other critics rate this movie quite average. One of the critics said, "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag fails to achieve that level of clarity or coherence, primarily because of Prasoon Joshi's faulty screenplay and sleepy editing by P Bharti, which appears both overwhelmed and clueless about putting together the many chapters of a sportsman's eventful existence".

DNA (5 stars)
I recommend a national holiday for the entire nation to go and see this movie. It makes the other recent high-profile acclaimed films look hopelessly inadequate.
Mohar Basu, koimoi (4 stars)
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is one of those rare films which are hard to forget long after you are done with them.
The Times Of India (4 stars)
Farhan is fantastic! He peeps through Milkha's core to essay this role. With an awe-inspiring body, grit and guts, he puts blood and sweat into Milkha.
Oneindia (Three and half stars)
Bhaag Milka Bhaag is not a mass movie, yet this one is hard to ignore!
Zee News (Three and half stars)
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag may not impress an average moviegoer, for it comes across as a very slow film. But it will certainly leave you with a sense of pride for having the legendary athlete as a fellow countryman.
Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV (Two and half stars)
To describe it in athletics terms, Bhaag Milkha Singh is a 400 metres sprint that feels like a cross-country race. Go for it only if you trust your endurance threshold.
Rediff (Two and half stars)
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag fails to achieve that level of clarity or coherence, primarily because of Prasoon Joshi's faulty screenplay and sleepy editing by P Bharti, which appears both overwhelmed and clueless about putting together the many chapters of a sportsman's eventful existence.
