Paan Singh Tomar is a Biopic of A Man Who Served Country as a Soldier after that he was an Olympic Athlete and he was the world champion of athletics for seven years but due to family problems and circumstances, he becomes a most wanted Bandit. This Movie Is Based on A Person who existed and his family members are still alive.

If we proceed to review Paan Singh Tomar there is just one sentence: The Irrfan Khan Show..! If we say that Irrfan khan was the greatest of his times, it won’t be wrong. Not Only India, But International Cinema is also grateful for Irrfan. Irrfan Khan is called an actor who can act in a whole just by his expressions and without words, he is my personal favorite.

In this movie Irrfan khan has just occupied the character of Paan Singh, From Accent and Language to His Body and Personality, everything and plus point is Irrfan’s killer Indian look gives a more realistic approach. Filming of Life of Paan Singh is really interesting, From Starting to ending movie keeps viewers bound with it.

The Area Where Paan Singh worked as Bandit is real and shot in real places instead of the green screen, portrayal of Indian Villages in the 1950s is very realistic, Director Tigmanshu Has really done an appreciable job. Dialogs of this movie are soul, every Dialog is a challenging the system and asking for justice.

The movie Generally Focuses on what happened to Paan Singh after living a good life as an athlete? And after being troubled why he was so helpless and picked a gun for himself? After Climax, when appearing the names of many sportsmen who dies because of the system’s irresponsibility and Ignorance, it was the purpose of movie. The acting done by the whole cast is over the top and everyone deserves awards.

The movie has some flaws as well, like some scenes of taking revenge to seem to be less impactful than they actually could be. The movie could be given some cinematic touch as well because of too much reality sometimes it feels bogus and boring. Although the movie is perfect for Irfan Fans, and rest people watch it for either Irrfan or Paan Singh.

May Rest in Peace Mr. Irrfan Khan! you will be missed forever ❣️
