Bhaag Milkha Bhaag Trailer Lives Up To My Expectations

Zinda hai to pyaala poora bhar de...that's how the Prasoon Joshi written line punctuates the Bhaag Milkha Bhaag trailer that will be launched tonight. On a personal note this is one film that I am eagerly awaiting. I have spoken to Rakeysh Mehra at two occasions about the film and he seems totally possessed by the film. It doesn't seem to be a 100 crore breast beating encore for him. He is a director who is passionate about story telling and the teaser lives up to my expectations and I am sure will by loved by one and all.

Farhan Akhtar has totally transformed himself into Milkha Singh. He looks exactly like the flying sikh. The final scene in the teaser has him flaunting a knife with a rivetting expression on the face. This must be the point of India-Pakistan partition when his key family members were killed. Shankar Ehsan Loy seem to be in full form if the Zinda number is any indication of what one can expect from other numbers. The movie releases in July next year and that's a long long wait.


  1. I just watched it posted on Farhan's Twitter..very impressive...

  2. Brilliant...please interview Farhan Akhtar...how did he prepare for the role?

  3. Oh really...I didn't know Milkha Singh used to run on trains...and had a six-pack.
