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.

One Of The Better Movies Of Bollywood., 13 March 2012
Author: uttiyo-sarkar56 from India

Boosted By An Excellent Performance by Irfan Khan and the rest of the cast, and a meaningful and good story, Pan Singh Tomar is one of the better bollywood movies which has great performances from the cast, a great story which is worth telling, and Irfan Khan just makes it better with his excellent portrayel of his character.

The Story is about a Daku(Dacoit)(Irfan) who was actually a soldier who fought for his country and could give it all for his country who then became a runner and wins gold medal at the Indian national games, but is forced to become a Dacoit after being neglected and insulted by the Police,and his mission is to rebel and defy the police department.

Irfan Khan is one of the few Hollywood worthy actors in bollywood, and probably the best at what he does, he yet again shows his excellent acting qualities in this movie by giving an excellent performance as Paan Singh Tomar, and he has shown the change of his character from a strict soldier to a notorious dacoit with utmost skill. The Rest of the cast also does a very good job in making this into a very well acted movie.

The Director does a decent job in making this film into one of the sensible movies made in bollywood, and good job from him for giving Irfan a perfect role in the movie. The Story which is based on a true story about the same man, is great and shows how many extremely talented athletes in India are neglected by the government and how they can become notorious at times.

Overall this movie is great due to mainly an excellent performance by Irfan Khan and a great story, to make this into one of the better movies of 2012 till now.

My Rating: 7.8/10
