About the Film

Running for his life. The unforgettable epic tale of an Indian boy from the slums with the gift of nearly superhuman athletic endurance. At 2, Budhia Singh is sold by his mother to a street hawker but then rescued by a larger-than-life sports coach who runs an orphanage for slum kids. When Budhia displays an uncommon talent for long-distance running, Biranchi nurtures his gift, heralding him as a folk hero for the impoverished masses. By age 4, Budhia has already completed a stunning 48 full marathons, but after the wonderkid collapses during his world record run, public opinion begins to turn on his guru and disciple, and soon the two are swept up in a maelstrom of controversy and political scandal.


Customer Reviews


This film is well worth a watch, a really great and at some times sad story of this amazing boy who has incredible endurance for someone so young, and all the trappings that go with it,


Highly recommend
