BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG is a Hindi language sports biopic telling the story of Indian Olympic athlete Milkha Singh.

Violence

The film contains some scenes of moderate violence, including flashbacks to the protagonist's family being killed during post-partition violence. The young Milkha witnesses a Sikh family member being shot, including brief sight of a blood spurt. There is also a fleeting strike from a sword when a man takes a swing at another relative. The scene cuts away from the impact, after which Milkha is seen slipping on some blood on the ground and falling over the corpses of his dead family.

Injury detail

The bloody moments include brief detail of Milkha's foot being injured when he runs barefoot during a race. He has a stone wedged in his foot, with sight of bloody injury when it is pulled out. In another scene, after Milkha is attacked by rivals, there are close shots of bloody puncture wounds on his feet and legs, caused by running spikes.

The film also contains mild bad language (eg 'saalay' and 'ass') and some moderate sex references, which include a scene of implied sex between Milkha and a woman.

A sexual assault is briefly indicated as Milkha's sister is attacked by her husband after he angrily calls her over to his side of a communal tent. The rape is established only through the sounds of the woman's discomfort, with all sight of the act hidden behind a sheet.
