Watched the movie Paan Singh Tomar on Wednesday and came out quite impressed with the movie. After a long time I saw a really good movie. Paan Singh Tomar is based on the true story of an Indian Army employee Paan Singh Tomar who later turned athlete and then a dacoit in the Chambal Valley.
As an athlete, Paan Singh Tomar was 7 times national champion in steeplechase and he also represented India at the Asian Games in Tokyo. However, due to some land dispute in his village between him and his relatives, he became a dacoit. He had a reward of Rs. 10,000 to his head. He was killed in 1981 by the police.
In the movie, the role of Paan Singh Tomar is played by Irrfan Khan
