Trivia

According to newspaper reports it was reported that Tomar was shot when he was alive and was asking for water: "Any rajput here who could please give me some water"; Hawaldar Tribhuwan Singh started walking towards Tomar with some water but the Circle inspector shouted at him: "Tribhuwan, dacoit has no caste".

Goofs

When the train approaches Nurpura railway station, the coach just after the locomotive engine has "G S L" and "U M Re" written on it (Hindi abbr. for North Central Railway). The story is set in the '60s and '70s, but the North Central railway came into existence on 1st April, 2003. See more »

Quotes

Journalist: You tricked the police of three states. This was quite a big scandal.
Paan Singh Tomar: That's the misfortune of our country. I crossed 28 barriers & 7 water pits to become the national champion, nobody cared. But when I fooled the police and do a kidnapping then everybody started chanting, Paan Singh... Paan Singh!
Journalist: I agree. Sports persons in this country are in a very poor condition.
Paan Singh Tomar: Don't shed crocodile tears. Had I been only a mere sportsperson, would you've taken so much risk to come & interview me?
Journalist: I agree.

Great Movie, A Must Watch For Everyone....
3 March 2012 | by (Dehradun, India) – See all my reviews

This is my first time, so please forgive me in case of any mistake...

Just watched this movie with my friends. If SRK & Salman could do 10% of Irrfan's acting,I would not mind calling them superstars. Hats off to Irrfan Khan and the movie.....10/10 !! What a great performance delivered by Irrfan khan. After watching a number of dumb movies released recently, Paan Singh Tomar is like a boon for every Indian movie fan. The director Tigmanshu Dhulia is successfully able to tell the biopic how a former national champion athlete is turned into a Dacoit in a cricket obsessed country. A must watch for everyone.....Highly recommended !!
