Watch the trailer right here:
What’s good about the story it is straightforward and crude. The first half is interesting to keep you glued to your seat, yet it dragged too much in the second half. The relationship between Manoj Bajpayee and Mayur Patole, in the film goes past father and son in the movie.
What’s the drawback, the director’s attempt to demonstrate Biranchi Das as a casualty of the government, which is dosen’t do justice to the genuine man that he was.
Final Review: “Budhia Singh-Born To Run”, is an enthusiastic film that highlights the account of a child whose story has been forgotten. It is a story that should be told. As a biopic, this one hits the right nerve. We at mangobollywood.com would rate 3/5 stars.
