5 Reasons To Definitely Watch The Biopic Of Budhia Singh!
Out of all others, the primary way through which Bollywood is attempting to stir the Indian audiences these days is by screening biopics of inspiring personalities. There has been many a times in the past that we have greatly been moved by such biopics, especially Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Paan Singh Tomar & Mary Kom, to name a few. Winning over our heart, the charisma of these characters instantly motivates us to desire for something great. Moreover, this time around, Bollywood has presented an impressive biopic based on a wonder kid from Odisha. And he is none other than Budhia Singh, the junior champ of our state!
While Budhia Singh – Born To Run has released just yesterday, here we list out some precise reasons for each one of you to watch and get touched by this biographical sports film!
1) Story of an unsung hero
The movie is inspired from the real life of world’s youngest marathon runner, Budhia Singh who has been coached and trained by his mentor named Biranchi Das. Depicting the bond between Budhia & Biranchi, this movie is a riveting tale of the struggles of Budhia to become India’s greatest runner. A kid from the slums, Singh’s childhood has remained a mess with even his dear ones turning a blind eye on him. But such has been his dedication that under the constant guidance of his instructor, Budhia even at a ripe age has managed to be touted as the next Milkha Singh.
2) Odisha Connect
Many scenes of Budhia Singh – Born To Run have been shot and directed in Odisha by an odia film-maker named Soumendra Padhi, himself. In fact, Soumendra has made his Bollywood debut through this extraordinary biopic. That apart, the song Suna Pua Daud which is a part of the movie, has been sung by Rituraj Mohanty, one of the sensational singers from Odisha.
3) Eternal charm Of Manoj Bajpayee
Time and again, Manoj has been enthralling Indian audiences with great performances. His solid dialogue delivery, classic expressions, and superb acting have made him garner an immense fan following. Known for doing unconventional roles in films, Manoj in this movie is playing the character of coach, Biranchi Das. Much before watching, we can only wonder how impeccably Manoj might have pulled off the character, specially after his outstanding roles in Gangs of Wasseypur, Satyagraha, Satya & many others!
4) Excellent cinematography
The original essence is restored such brilliantly in this movie that it’s a sheer delight to watch it on the big screens. Especially, the 70 km run from Puri to Bhubaneswar has been recreated excellently. With amazing background score by Ishaan Chhabra & Sidhant Mathur, the central themes of the plot are well presented. All in all, the camerawork, editing and background music lend an escalating feel to the entire plot.
5) A National Award Winning Film
Even before its original screening, Budhia Singh, originally titled Duronto, has already attained national acclamation. By winning the National Film Award for Best Children’s Film in 2016, Budhia Singh – Born To Run has turned out to become a must watch biopic!
