Bhag milkha bhag

  1. 1. Hi All, I am goingto speakaboutthe filmwhichhasinspiredme: Bhag MilkhaBhag I guesseveryone musthave seenthe movie. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag[6] ) is a 2013 Indian biographical sports drama film directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra from a script written by Prasoon Joshi based on the life of Milkha Singh, an Indian athlete who was a national champion runner and an Olympian. The film starts in the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome, where a coach says "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag!" The story is taken back to the memories of the childhood days of a young boy which haunted him, resulting in him dropping to fourth. Partition of India in 1947 caused chaos which resulted in mass religious violence in Punjab in British India, killing the parents of Milkha Singh (Farhan Akhtar). He reaches Delhi and later meets his sister there. Living in refugee camps, Milkha soon makes friends and survives by stealing along with his friends. He falls in love with Biro (Sonam Kapoor), but she asks him to live a life of honesty. Milkha finally finds himself in the army where he gets noticed by a Havaldar (Sergeant) after he wins a race in which top 10 runners will get milk, two eggs and excused from exercise. He gets selected for service commission where he is miffed and gets beaten up by senior players whom he had defeated earlier, on the day before selection of Indian team for Olympics. In spite of being injured, he participates in the race. Overcoming his pain, he wins the race thus breaking the national record. During the Melbourne 1956 Olympics he is attracted to the granddaughter of his Australian technical coach. They have frolicking night in a bar. The following day he feels exhausted from the previous night's activities and loses the final race. He realizes his mistake. Suffering from guilt he even slaps himself in front of a mirror. On the flight back to India he asks his coach what the world record is for the 400m race and learns that it is 45.90 seconds. He trains hard with a firm determination and wins in several places. He then breaks the previous world record for the 400m race with a dashing time of 45.80 seconds. Jawaharlal Nehru, the then prime minister convinces him to lead the Indian team in Pakistan for a friendly race with Abdul Khaliq (Dev Gill) also known as the fastest man of Asia. In Pakistan he misses the press conference and goes to his village where, in a flashback, it is shown how his parents were murdered and the last words of his father were "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag!" He starts crying and is comforted by a boy who turns out to be his childhood friend's son. He also meets his friend Sampreet. In the game, initially the Pakistani favorite is winning, but Milkha takes the lead eventually overtaking opponents one by one, taking a convincing lead and winning both the race and respect of the two nations. The then president of Pakistan, General Ayub Khan, impressed by his effort gives him the title "The Flying Sikh". Jawaharlal Nehru also declares a day in the name of Milkha as national holiday as desired by Milkha himself.
