Bhaag Milkha Bhaag will have you captivated with its grit and enigma. Made with panache, it’s hard to take your eyes off Farhan Akhtar, who enriches Milkha Singh as a surreal charismatic figure beyond the realms of flesh and blood! This one is so moving and scintillating that such films are a reward to the audiences for bearing through the fiascoes!

'BMB' pulsates with the storyteller's sheer passion all the way to the finish line. While you are on-the-run, pause to watch this one.

Some lives are made for the big screen. Milkha Singh's certainly is one. It has everything.

The film itself is well intentioned and shines a light on an important figure. But it's too long and too unfocused to leave a lasting impression. Watch it for Farhan Akhtar's sincere performance.

BMB deserves every ounce of praise for the filmmakers' conviction on display. When you're done watching Rakyesh Omprakash's epic effort, you'll come out of the theater wanting to run. And be a better person. This, right here, is the film's ultimate victory.
Critic Score: 3/5

Although BMB is no Chariots of Fire, the running sequences are quite gripping. But, despite the powerful background score by Shankar Ehsaan Loy, terrific cinematography by Binod Pradhan and some sharp editing by P S Bharathi, BMB feels like a laboured effort that takes too long to finish.
Critic Score: 2.5/5

It is clear that Mehra and his team worked very hard to bring the story of Milkha Singh to the screen. There is a lot of research that went into BMB and the running sequences are quite gripping.
Critic Score: 3/5

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag isn’t a competently made film. It is the high pitch of the narrative that is often distractingly raspy. 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.
Critic Score: 2.5/5

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is more the overlong, overblown Singing-Dancing-Flying Sikh, than just the triumphal, true Flying Sikh.
