The emotionally written script of Budhia Singh will force you to think about the society. Nicely penned dialogues and cinematography is the plus point of the film. At one point of time, your eyes will definitely get wet. The presentation of the entire story is just fantastic.


As expected, Manoj Bajpai has done a commendable job as Budhia’s coach. He is the life of the film. Along with Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Manoj is also one of the diamond actors of our film industry, who showcases the real talent of acting.

You will get mesmerized with his portray of Biranchi Das and he has the quality to get into character and what comes out from it is in front of you. Mayur Patole as Budhia Singh has also performed brilliantly and the rest of the star cast have too given their best.

Weak Points:

The only drawback with Budhia Singh: Born To Run is its pace, that is on a bit slower side. It could have been better than this. Otherwise, it is a perfect treat to watch.

 Last Words:

Without any doubt, Budhia Singh is a wonderful film which let you know about a champion marathon runner and his selfless coach. You have to watch it once.


My Ratings to Budhia Singh: Born To Run is 3.5 out of 5 stars.
