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".See more »
Anachronisms: When Paan Singh goes to Rajasthan with his gang to rob the money lender, the shops in that area have Pepsi Logo on them. Pepsi entered India in 1989 while this setting is supposed to be of 70s.See more »
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.

One of the Gems from Bollywood, 6 March 2012
Author: sherlee from Pakistan

I watch Indian movies very selectively,after reading its review, I found it an extraordinary movie,no doubt it is one of the gems from Indian Cinema, no songs no dance ,an extraordinary story with superb acting by Irfann Khan, he is a true khan.

The simplicity shown by director in this movie is worth to be watched,Whosays that the big budgeted with so called super stars movies can be hit, but I think Irfan is a real super star.I must say here that the reviews written by Taran Adarsh must be avoided now that he gave only 3 stars to this movie.I recommend it for everyone who wants to have great time in watching movie,I bet, this movie will not disappoint you,I think it would be nominated for Oscars 2013.I am giving it 10/10.
