  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-9
Biopics are fast gaining popularity in Hindi movies and several conscientious film-makers are attempting movies based on the life events of iconic and distinguished personalities. THE LEGEND OF BHAGAT SINGH and BOSE: THE FORGOTTEN HERO won immense critical acclaim

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-8
He doesn't sing for his supper. He runs. Every sinew tugging and rippling to be fed. For that one glass of milk(ha!). He had a choice to run away, or to run. He did the right thing, he ran. Oh yes, the eternal metaphor 'the race of life'. We're all runners. With reason enough? A finish line to shred?

  •  Rediff -Aseem Chhabra Rating-5
Farhan Akhtar is a machine. Watching how he uses each muscle in his body – on his neck, chest, arms, abdomen, legs-- as he runs in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’sBhaag Milkha Bhaag, it is hard to believe that this father of two will turn 40 in exactly six months. I do not know what Milkha Singh sounded

  •  Daily Bhaskar -Rating-6
Farhan Akhtar, Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra, India's most respected athlete, Milkha Singh - the last thing you expect out of a concoction of the three is an overdose of drama, but sadly your last expectation is the film's first attribute. The reality of Milkha Singh's biopic is lost in the overdose

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5
One can well imagine the huge wave of disappointment that would have assailed the nation when, at the 1960 Rome Olympics, the legendary Milkha Singh missed a medal in a photo-finish. Over half a century later, the overstuffed cinematic re-enactment of that 400 metres race and the historical and biographical events leading up to it is no less of a downer.

  •  Washington Post -Stephanie Merry Rating-4
The movie begins in 1960 with Milkha’s failed attempt at securing a medal during the Rome Olympics. Despondent, he tries to withdraw from a government-orchestrated race in Pakistan. One of the organizers can’t comprehend why Milkha would quit, but the runner’s coach explains

  •  Indian Express -Shubra Gupta Rating-5
Are you relaxing? No, I am Milkha Singh. This is one of those legendary jokes that typifies a couple of things: Punjabi humour in all its quirky broadness, and the man who is supposed to have said it, the legendary athlete who broke records on national and international tracks,
  •  Deccan Chronicle -Khaled Mohamed Rating-7
Unarguably, Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra is back in form after the higgledy-piggledy 'Delhi 6'. For sure 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', his salute to an athlete, leaps out straight from the heart, which may skip several beats but cannot arrest the impact left by the three-hour-plus epic. 
  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-8
The film is an intelligently disguised story of a man whom history cannot faze out easily. Milkha Singh’s life story has the right ingredients for a clever biopic which Prasoon Joshi and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra have executed with delectable imagination. At no point does the film scatter
  •  Zee News -Gayatri Sankar Rating-7
We have merrily celebrated the success of Milkha Singh but seldom got a chance to have a rendezvous with the inspiration that has made him what he is today. ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ is perhaps one such piece of cinematic art that bridges the gap between the sportsman and the various
  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-5
You know the thing about unfortunate run-outs in cricket? Sometimes a batsman inching closer towards a knockout innings runs so eagerly in between wickets that by the time he gets on the other side, his off-guard co-batsman has not even started.Although Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
  •  Yahoo Movies -Rumana Ahmed Rating-7
They called him The Flying Sikh – the man who, besides being the only Indian to win an individual athletics goal at the Commonwealth Games, represented India in the finals of the 400 meters Olympics in Rome, finishing fourth.The story of an athlete from a non-athletic nation capturing
  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-5
Over an exhausting 3 hours and 7 minutes, the film, starring Farhan Akhtar as Milkha, details the athlete's journey from a boy displaced during Partition to his early years in a gang of petty thieves, followed by his recruitment in the Indian army from where he went on to become a sports hero.
  •  Economic Times -Gaurav Malani Rating-6
When a biopic comes with a disclaimer which reads 'inspired by true events', somewhere the underlining pretext is that fiction will take precedence over realism in the bigger picture. Like any decent biopic, even Bhaag Milkha Bhaag has its permissible share of creative writing to add that
  •  Filmfare -Rachit Gupta Rating-8
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag employs Guru Gobind Singh’s famous words and a sad old Sardaar joke with equal conviction. So where you have the inspirational “Chirian to mein baaz tudaun, gidran to mein sher banaun, sawa lakh se ek ladaun, tabhe Gobind Singh naam kahaun”
