Amazing story telling... Budhia, forgotten runner; Biranchi, an unheard hero
20 October 2016 | by vks_vishwaSee all my reviews

Amazing story telling can be seen in the movie. Budhia, the long distance runner kid was a prodigy, but the kind of twists and turns that entails his life due to political pressures and interests is beautifully narrated by the movie. The movie constantly revolves around the relationship between the coach and the student; coach's undying spirit to make Budhia an Olympic runner; Budhia's spirit to run; the politics being played around Budhia's success story; the strange role of Budhia's mother. All in just one package, that too beautifully done. You just enjoy the journey. One can see the strong performances by each character. The best one is by the coach, Manoj Bajpayee, as usual. The kid has given the best he could. Coach's wife's role can also be seen as being played well by Gita. Overall a good acting, story and emotions.
