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.

Tigmanshu Dhulia and Irrfan Khan do it again
3 March 2012 | by (Delhi, India) – See all my reviews

The pair has given us the unforgettable "Haasil" and they are back again with "Paan Singh Tomar".

The movie has an excellent script, very well supported by the actors and their performances. Irrfan khan does an incredibly good job with the character. Mahie Gill has done equally well and she is really growing as an actor.

The script and its originality is the strongest point of the movie. The direction of the movie is also flawless... Tigmanshu Dhulia must be praised for picking up this script and turning into an excellent movie.
