In the times when the best of films run in theatres for three or at the maximum four weeks, BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG has been running for over seven weeks now. With the film completing 50 days at the box office, it is time for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra to get into a retrospective mode.


He has all the right reasons too. After all, before the Farhan Akhtar enacted affair, his DELHI 6 hadn't really seen such flattering response, either critically or commercially. For someone who was the darling of the industry after RANG DE BASANTI, he had a threat of oblivion looming large when the Abhishek Bachchan starrer failed to make much waves.

"Woh hota hai," Mehra says in a soft tone, "When you attempt subjects like DELHI 6 then you are always looking for something. If you are lucky then you find it; if you don't then you try it again. I had attempted a metaphor of 'kaala bandar' within us and also used a mirror as a tool for self reflection. Some were impressed, some were not. That's okay. It is a little more complex when you attempt subjects like RANG DE BASANTI, DELHI 6 or BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG. I have always set out on a different road. I have done that since my debut film AKS. For me cinema is very personal, it is a self-expression."

Now that his film has entered the century club, he has good reason to play on the front foot as well. "Agar logon ko picture lambhi lagti toh woh baar baar nahi aate. The very fact they have enjoyed that what they saw justifies the film's length," he continues, "It is the eventual content that counts."

True that!
