The story of Budhia Singh is stranger than fiction
Anupama Chopra, Film Companion
When a coach trains a five year old against all logic, is it for self publicity or has he really saved the boy from abject poverty and slavery? Does the government have any right over a young sportsperson's need to run or did they do a right thing? This movie tackles all this and more by telling us the story of a five year old marathon runner Budhia Singh and his devoted coach Birinchi Das. Will shake you up.

Budhia Singh: Born To Run is not so much a film as it is a passionate appeal to remind and regain an opportunity for Odisha’s erstwhile Wonder Boy, now a forgotten teenager

One of the best films of 2016

There are no star trappings, but the film leaves you with a warm, fuzzy feeling. So much so that you will want to overlook the flaws and just enjoy the experience.
