Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, Paan Singh Tomar showcases the sad plight of the unsung sportsmen in India. The director uses the famous athlete named Paan Singh Tomar as an example. Irrfan Khan plays the lead role of in the film, whereas Mahi Gill essays the role of the wife of the protagonist.
A plot like this is likely to turn monotonous after a certain time. However, Tigmanshu has made a serious endeavour to grab your attention by focussing on the reason behind why Paan Singh decides to become a dacoit. In fact, the motive is so compelling that you begin to relate to the character essayed by Irrfan Khan.
