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.

Excellent watch - Irfan gives a stellar performance
25 October 2010 | by tintinhergeSee all my reviews

Watched it in the London Film Festival yesterday. Its a star of a movie. Great tight script, super acting, and great direction. All the actors have done a great job but Irfan is just magnificent- he is turning up as the next Nasruddin Shah

Everyone in the cinema seemed to enjoy the movie and the director got a nice applause in the end.

My worry is that this movie might not get a wide release, specially abroad - I hope UTV does it best to publicise and release it as much as it can.

Well recommended !!!!
