The Bhaag Milkha Bhaag Trailer that released yesterday managed to leave an overwhelming impact on me. The film’s trailer uses a plethora of strong images and contrast it with innocent ones to leave a lingering feel. It goes without saying that Farhan Akhtar has not only pushed the envelope in terms of physical fitness but he manages to smoothly fit in the magnanimous role of Milkha Singh.
Specifically, I like the bit where Farhan who has put up a chiseled show mellows down and plans the names of his kids with Sonam Kapoor. The actress who will seen with Farhan for the first time seems to play her role with freshness and vigor.
The film that is a biopic from its trailer can be expected to stay close to real occurrences. Since Milkha Singh, who went on to become India’s shining athlete in the 1958 Asian Games where he won two gold medals, was involved in the film’s scripting and making closely, the makers were left with mild scope to tamper with the story.
Director Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra is known to be more fluent with powerful cinema and with that the expectations from Bhaag Milkha Bhaag doubles up. Though Mehra delivered a damp Delhi 6, the mass moving capability of Rang De Basanti still remains infallible.
The Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio have done a fantastic job with the film’s music. Songs that sync in with the script, might turn out to be one of film’s most pivotal strongholds. Zinda has a hint of calamity in it which captivates your soul. Farhan’s hard work on his physique is evident. The rigorous challenge makes him stand out with infectious confidence. The bare bodied scenes are indeed a plus and the scene in which he runs with a tyre tied to his stomach, is an absolute ace!
After a long time, a trailer has left me with strong an urge to watch the film. Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar together have woven a sparkling tall figure of a man who has an unbeatable place in history. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag that will release on 12th July, is undoubtedly one of the first on my most awaited films’ list of 2013.
