Budhia Singh – Born to Run is positioned as a biopic of the world’s youngest marathon runner, but it’s as much an indictment of Indian bureaucracy and petty politics as it is true story of the five-year-old tyke whose achievements it celebrates. Winner of the National Award for Best Children’s Film earlier this year (under its original title, Duronto), .I’m going with three out of five for Budhia Singh – Born to Run. It’s predictably told but heartfelt…and thought-provoking to boot. Not a bad way to spend two hours.

Padhi’s narrative works best when it focuses on the relationship between Biranchi and Budhia. Mayur is an absolute natural. What’s less interesting is the whirlwind that Budhia’s talent ignited. Biranchi’s loving but often fraught relationship with his wife is nicely etched but the other characters aren’t fleshed out enough  After some time, the repeated visuals of various marathons become, quite literally, a slog. I also felt like I never really got enough insight into Budhia’s head – he’s rebellious and mischievous and he really wants a red bicycle. But what drives Budhia to run and run and run? We never find out.

A 5-year-old poor kid wants to run because it can fetch him new shoes, or a new cycle. An ambitious but cynical coach pushes the child to his limits because he is convinced the boy is talented. The kid succeeds against all odds, and that becomes the most defining moment of his life: because it will one day end up in his beloved coach’s murder.

Can a movie change a life? After watching Budhia Singh: Born To Run, you wish for a miracle. Or anything that can help a young prodigy unlock his enormous potential.The ‘real’ Budhia’s career has been stuck in bureaucratic sloth and carelessness. Can the film shine a spotlight on his plight and pull him back on track for the long haul?

On the whole, BUDHIA SINGH – BORN TO RUN, despite winning a national award and being a good film, has less awareness due to poor publicity and lesser star value. Due to this, BUDHIA SINGH – BORN TO RUN will face an uphill task at the box office. Overall, the film will have to rely heavily on word of mouth and strong audience support to post good box office figures. But if you are in the mood to watch an inspirational tale of human spirit, endurance and sacrifice, do watch this one.

Formerly titled Duronto (having few stops), Budhia Singh – Born To Run is certainly worth a watch. It is moving, exciting and sad all rolled into one. If you don’t know Budhia Singh, you must watch this! The story of Odisha’s wonder boy and his coach Biranchi Das needs to be heard. As a sports drama or a biopic, this one hits the right nerve.

The sheer power of the story that Padhi tells serves to paper over the minor chinks in the tale. The film celebrates an improbable dream and mourns its untimely death, both with infectious passion and ends with a fervent appeal on a behalf of a social media campaign to put Budhia back in his running shoes. Not a bad idea at all. Overall, Budhia Singh – Born to Run is worth running all the way to the nearest multiplex for.

Today, Budhia is suffering as he wages a lone battle against the absurd ban on the one thing that he loves to do – run – and this film from the flag off to the finish line does a fine job of portraying his predicament on screen. Go for it because this is a story that needs to be told and it hasn’t been photoshopped for convenience!

Extraordinary in ever sense, this is a story that had to be told. Just as every Budhia needs a Biranchi Das, every story of an unsung hero needs a filmmaker with a dispassionate vision. “Budhia Singh – Born To Run” should be granted a tax exemption in every Indian state.

  1. बुधिया सिंह- बॉर्न टू रन: फिल्मों में स्पोर्ट्स बहुत देखा, अब एक ‘सच्ची’ स्पोर्ट्स फिल्म देखिये! [4/5]
    5 साल का बुधिया 70 किलोमीटर के मैराथन दौड़ में 40-45 किलोमीटर पार कर आया है. उसे प्यास लग रही है. साथ-साथ साइकिल पर चल रहे अपने ‘कोच सर’ को इशारा कर रहा है. कोच सर उसे पानी तक पहुँचने भी नहीं दे रहे. आपका दिल बैठा जा रहा है. आपके मन में कोच सर के लिए बेदिली बढ़ती जा रही है, पर कोच सर के माथे पर कोई शिकन नहीं. क्योंकि उन्हें बुधिया की प्यास से ज्यादा फ़िक्र है बुधिया के भूख की. भूख दौड़ने की. भूख गरीबी, मुफलिसी और मायूसी के दलदल से निकल कर अपनी पहचान कायम करने की. भूख एक जोड़ी जूतों और एक लाल रंग के साइकिल की.

    यूँ तो कहने को खेल और खिलाड़ियों की ज़िन्दगी पर बनी दर्जनों हिंदी फिल्में आपके जेहन में घूम रही होंगी, पर सोमेन्द्र पधि की ‘बुधिया सिंह- बॉर्न टू रन’ बिना किसी शक अब तक की सबसे अच्छी ‘स्पोर्ट्स फिल्म’ मानी जानी चाहिए. हालाँकि इस फिल्म में ‘आगे क्या होगा’ वाला रोमांच कम है, मैच के आख़िरी पलों में गोल दाग कर या छक्का मार कर टीम जिताने वाला हीरो भी कोई नहीं है, और ना ही फिल्म की सफलता के लिए ‘देशभक्ति’ का बनावटी छौंका लगाकर आपके अन्दर के ‘भारतीय’ को जबरदस्ती का झकझोरने की कोशिश. ‘बुधिया सिंह- बॉर्न टू रन’ फार्मूले से अलग एक ऐसी ‘स्पोर्ट्स’ फिल्म है, जो सिर्फ सतही तौर पर खेल से जुड़े रोमांच को भुनाने की कोशिश नहीं करती, बल्कि उसके पीछे की मेहनत-मशक्कत, लगन और मुश्किलातों को सच्चे मायनों में आपके सामने उसकी असली ही शकल-ओ-सूरत में पेश करती है.

    जूडो कोच बिरंची दास [मनोज बाजपेयी] झुग्गी-झोपड़ियों के गरीब अनाथ बच्चों को अपने ही घर पर रख कर उन्हें जूडो सिखाते हैं. 850 रूपये में एक नशेडी को बेचे गए बुधिया [मयूर महेंद्र पटोले] के लिए भी बिरंची दास एक भले मददगार की तरह ही सामने आते हैं, पर बुधिया के लिए उनके पास कोई अलग, कोई ख़ास प्लान नहीं है. ऐसे में एक दिन, दौड़ने के लिए उसका जूनून देखकर दास को जैसे न सिर्फ उसकी बल्कि अपनी भी ज़िन्दगी का मकसद साफ़ दिखाई देने लगता है. बुधिया दौड़ेगा, और सिर्फ दौड़ेगा. मैराथन दौड़ेगा, ओलंपिक्स में दौड़ेगा, बस दौड़ेगा. मासूम बुधिया की ललक और जज्बाती बिरंची दास की सनक साथ मिलकर पूरे देश के खिलाडियों के लिए मिसालें कायम कर रही है, कि अचानक शुरू होता है राजनीतिक सत्ता और बेरहम सिस्टम का सर्कस!

    सोमेन्द्र पधि की ‘बुधिया सिंह- बॉर्न टू रन’ आपका दिल चीर के रख देगी, जब आप सिस्टम को बुधिया और उसके सपनों के बीच खड़ा पायेंगे. बाल कल्याण समिति की खोखली दिलचस्पी से खिन्न, बेबाक बिरंची एक जगह बोल भी पड़ते हैं, “ओड़िसा में हर दिन एक बच्चा भूख से मर रहा है. भूख से मरने से तो अच्छा है दौड़ कर मरे!”. बुधिया सिंह के दौड़ने पर बैन लगा दिया जाता है, और आज 10 साल बाद भी उसके ओलंपिक्स में दौड़ने के सपने को भारत सरकार ने जंजीरों से बाँध रखा है. अफ़सोस, आज कोई बिरंची दास उसके साथ, उसके पास नहीं है!

    बेहतरीन डायरेक्शन, सिनेमेटोग्राफी, एडिटिंग और म्यूजिक के बीच, फिल्म का सबसे मजबूत पक्ष उभर कर आता है उसके किरदारों में बखूबी ढलते कलाकार. मनोज बाजपेयी ने तो मानो एक अलग ही मुहीम छेड़ रखी है. एक वक़्त था, जब अर्थपूर्ण फिल्मों को ‘पैरेलल सिनेमा’ का नाम दिया जाता था, मनोज जिस तरह की फिल्मों [अलीगढ, ट्रैफिक और अब ‘बुधिया सिंह- बॉर्न टू रन’] को अपना नाम दे रहे हैं, उसे देखते हुए कहा जा सकता है कि अगर हिंदी सिनेमा के लिए नहीं, तो कम से कम अपने लिए ही सही वो एक ऐसे ही ‘पैरेलल मूवमेंट’ ही शुरुआत कर चुके हैं. उनके बिरंची में आपको सामान्य कुछ भी नहीं दिखता. ये वो गुरु नहीं है, जिसके लिए हर वक़्त आप नतमस्तक दिखें. उसकी नीयत पर भले ही आपको कोई शक-ओ-शुबहा न हो, उसे रूखे रवैये और तीखे तरीके आपको ज़रूर विचलित कर देंगे. बुधिया के किरदार में मयूर महेंद्र पटोले का चयन एकदम सटीक है. ‘हगा और भगा’ जैसे मासूम पलों में वो और भी कामयाब दिखते हैं.

    अंत में; एनडीटीवी के हालिया इंटरव्यू में 15 साल के बुधिया को सुनते-देखते एक बात का एहसास बहुत दुःख के साथ होता है कि कैसे हमने, हमारी निकम्मी व्यवस्था, हमारी नौकरशाही ने एक प्रतिभा को पंगु बना रख छोड़ा है, कैसे एक जोशीले, ज़हीन और ज़ज्बाती इंसान के सपने को खंजर बना कर हमने उसी के सीने में उतार दिया. ‘बुधिया सिंह- बॉर्न टू रन’ एक टीस की तरह आपके दिल में काफी वक़्त तक दबी रह जायेगी.

  2. Budhia Singh Born to Run: Sports much seen in movies, is now a 'real' sports movie watch! [4/5]
    5 years old Budhia 70 kilometer marathon race has come across 40-45 kilometers. Look thirsty. Along with running cycle 'head coach' is pointing to.

Then one day, his passion for running, such as seeing the servant not only his life but also the purpose of the clearing appears. Budhia would run, and just run on. Marathon run on, would run in the Olympics, just run on. Budhia innocent cravings and emotional whims of Biranchi Das players together for the whole country have been sharing examples, political power, and cruel system that starts suddenly circus!

    the best direction, cinematography, editing and music, between the strength of the film emerges waning artist his characters brilliantly. Manoj Bajpai as it has launched a different campaign. There was a time when the meaningful films' Parallel Cinema 'was named Manoj way films [Aligarh, traffic and now Budhia Singh Born to Run'] to give his name, said to be given Hindi cinema that can not, at least in its own right for her such a "parallel movement" has already started. You normally do not see anything in their Biranchi. These are not the master, for which every time you look subservient. No doubt his intentions, even if you do not have O-misgiving, her rude attitude and sharp way, surely you will be distracted. Budhia plays Peacock select MS Patole is exact. "Hga and banished 'He even managed to look as innocent moments.
