If you are looking for entertainment, this one is for you. Somewhere I found overacting and extra hardwork to make a scene funny. However, it was a movie made for 1950-60s era and when you keep that in mind, everything was fitting. Characters and scenes...
From the beginning scene only, I knew that this is some quality movie.
Milkha Singh is awesome - whether portrayed by Farhaan or the child actor! This is by far Farhaan's best performance. And the child actor is someone to look out for!
I have been impressed by Prasoon Joshi since 2007 when he wrote songs for Taare Zameen Par... This time he not only writes songs but also the script! A good job!
At times I believe they stretched the movie. The climax is made for masses. Full of patriotism and all...
Watch it for Farhaan!

Yes, the movie is gripping for most time, but there are intervals when you can get up to go grab a coke or visit restroom without missing much action. I'd have loved the movie had it been edited with the overly romantic scenes and unnecessary songs. The pace of movie is enjoyable and the script is well written. You may get a feel of "Inception" when you time-travel from a latest Milkha flashback into a Young Milkha's flashback into a Kid-Milkha's flashback ;)
"Must Go" movie for the living legend Milkha Singh and his heroics. Salute to the man who was not god gifted but who built himself out of his "hardwork, and perspiration".

Movie was good in all the aspects except editing... should have been trimmed by 30-40 mins... many scenes unwanted.. may be intimate scenes in Australia or drinking Ghee or sequences of Ishri with her husband...

A flawless movie - extremely well done - an experience of a lifetime. Each moment was engaging. Will reap acting and moviemaking rewards I am sure.
Exception: 3 hours and 8 minutes - could have been 2 hours.
Also, DO NOT BRING KIDS.

The movie is well made and has a good story line but the editing could have been done better to cut the unnecessary part by at least an hour.
