Budhia Singh : Born to Run Reviews
At the heart of the film is the relationship between Manoj Bajpayee and his 5-year-old genius find Budhia, and we get to see it in all its magnificent complexity. The selfish love, the blind trust, the unguarded moments of anger and frustration all make the movie come throbbing to life.
Budhia Singh : Born to Run- Story Review
The story is all about a kid who has a passion for sports and his coach, Biranshi Das. Biranshi who runs a training institute in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha and he also trains orphaned children.
Then, Biranchi goes off to see to his work, presumably under the impression that the kid would get tired at some point and stop on his own. By the time he returns, he’s dumbfounded to find that Budhia is still running, tirelessly.
It’s easy to think of this scene as typical movie fiction — except this is pretty much exactly how the real Biranchi had discovered that Budhia, then four years old, possessed special, unreal reserves of stamina; it was an ability that would make him the world’s youngest marathon ‘player’

Budhia Singh : Born to Run – Star Performance Review
Manoj Bajpayee, who plays the role of coach has done a fabulous job. He is a perfect fit for his role and literally owns the character. He knows very well how to work in the silent scenes. This film richer thanks to him.
The role of Buddhai is played by a 5-year-old child, Mayur Patole, has done a great job. The scenes are terrific when he met his coach, Biranshi Das.
The ensemble cast is terrific without exception. Tillotama Shome, Gajraj Rao, Chhaya Kadam, and Shruti Marathe all help to add deeper levels of empathy and texture to the movie.
Budhia Singh : Born to Run- Direction review
Soumendra Padhi’s directorial approach is highly impressive. Politics and Sports have a deadly mixture in India and it has always incurred losses for those with talents. Through the film, Padhi wishes there to be a reconsideration on the life ban that has been imposed on Budhia.
