About
“Milkha Singh” – for some the name evokes a faint memory from the pages of history. What is most remembered is that Milkha Singh hailed as the Flying Sikh, was a famous athlete, who infamously lost the penultimate race of his life. “The one who lost the 400 meter finals at the Rome Olympics…” is an involuntary response when the name Milkha Singh is mentioned.

The film attempts to understand a catastrophic loss that was deemed a sure victory and explores through the darkness of disgrace, Milkha’s redemption and catharsis that comes when he confronts his past.

Milkha, ironically, finds himself in a place wherein he has lost all: Pakistan, a place where he witnessed the bloody massacre of his entire family. The demons hidden in some dark corner of his consciousness come alive.

This iridescent tale winds through the plagues of a bloody civil war, a lost childhood, homelessness and petty crime to victories hard won and easily lost. It draws an intricate image of human trials, setbacks and fate leveraged against the sheer power of will. It illustrates that true victor lies in racing with one’s troubles and not in running away from them.

Milkha tries, falls, and rises, bruising his soul but not his will to survive.

Milkha Singh, the world champion in 400 meters, lost the most important race of his life, the 1960 Rome Olympics, but won in LIFE.
