Chambal - a region one instantly associates with dacoits and old Bollywood baddies.

Revenge has a sort of madness within and the revenge of a strong helpless man only adds to the depth of that madness. Somewhere in the middle of this madness (when you have started thinking that a family feud and loss of family members is the grouse that

The end credits of Paan Singh Tomar pay tribute to the forgotten sporting heroes of India who died penniless and uncared for. Paan Singh would also have been one of those had he not picked up the gun and this film wouldn’t have been made. Dhulia makes his

The real-life story of subedar Paan Singh Tomar a seven-time national champion athlete and Army jawan who became a dacoit
Avijit Ghosh, Times of India
Paan Singh Tomar is not just any other biopic it's much more. It raises the bar of Indian cinema and shouts out loud for a deserving watch.
Mansha Rastogi, Now Running
In the past, director Tigmanshu Dhulia has made films like 'Saheb Biwi aur Gangster', 'Shagird' and 'Haasil', each of which has managed to establish the fact that he is a filmmaker who has a style and narrative of his own. That is visible in 'Paan Singh Tomar' as well which is certainly not a film that can be dismissed by any. Just for the sheer reason of appreciating the thought behind the film, a largely entertaining first half and a very good act by Irrfan, this film can be given a dekko.

Paan Singh Tomar does not have the commercial ingredients to score at the box-office. Had the second half been more weighty, it could have worked reasonably well but with the post interval portion looking like a routine dacoit drama, that won't be possibl

S.K De, Movie Zadda
Overall, Dhulia deserves a salute for making a movie as a tribute to the memory of all those sportspersons who brought glory to the nation but died unsung and in misery
K N Gupta, Smash Hits
There is some predictability built into a film like this, where you already know what happens, and the post-interval section does drag a little bit occasionally.

PST reminds us never to forget that shame of India.
