He knew his way with girls. Whether it was his good looks or his persona, girls were head over heels in love with him. But he was used to this. Wherever he went, girls followed him all the way. There were stories floating about him all the time. Some said he slept with each of them. Some said he was a spoilt brat. And there were many others who said that he didn’t know the meaning of love.

Like others, even I thought about him often. But then I was different. I couldn’t bring myself up to say something. Would he ever look at me with those love struck eyes? Would he be my knight in shining armour? He was smart. He was dashing. He seemed the perfect mix of tall, dark and handsome.

Cast: Farhan Akhtar, Divya Dutta, Prakash Raj, Sonam Kapoor, Pavan Malhotra

Director: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra

Producer: Viacom 18, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra

Music: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy

Plot: The movie begins with Milkha’s tragic loss in the 1960 Rome Olympics and then goes into flashback mode showing a young Milkha and how it all started for him from the army recruitment phase. We also get to see the post partition riots where Milkha’s parents’ were murdered and how the little Sikh runs for his life, meets his sister in the refugee camp and then grows up gambling, learning how to use a knife and stealing coal from local trains for some cash. From the army begins his journey to become one of the greatest ever athletes India has ever seen.

Technical view: This biopic just leaves you speechless with it’s impeccable direction and energetic atmosphere. Though the movie runs for about three hours, except for maybe a few minutes, the movie holds a strong grip over the audience. The background score is exceptional and the introduction of Farhan Akhtar is just epic! Dialogues are not the best part of the movie but they do provide you a chuckle here and there. Prakash Raj and Pavan Malhotra also do a fine job with their acting as always.

Eyes meet.

Hands are held.

Hugs and little sweet kisses are given.

Sparks fly all around!

But does silence play a part? Was there a time when you met your loved one that you just wanted everything to stay calm and quiet? Was there a time when you met your loved one that you just wanted to lose yourself into her without speaking a word? Was there a time when you met your loved one that you just wanted to hold her close to you and simply feel the moment without uttering any needless sentences?
