Best 10 Bollywood Movies On Sports

Bollywood has made some astounding movies on sports. There might be a huge number of movies released under the genre of sports and games but there are five movies which we have selected that offer great performances, amazing storytelling and gripping script. Last but definitely not the least, these movies are classic and you can never get bored with them.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is one of those Bollywood movies on sports which is known for amazing performance and great transformation of Farhan Akhter. This movie is a biopic on Milkha Singh – The Flying Singh of India. The best thing about this movie is the narration and how the film proceeds with its entire cast. It is a must watch.


Aamir Khan did some unbelievable body transformation for Dangal, not once but twice. Dangal will be remembered as the most honest attempt on Bollywood movies on sports and games. There were speculations that Dangal would be similar to Salman Khan’s “Sultan” but that’s not true by any means. Dangal makes you realize that Aamir Khan is the leader in Bollywood and not the boss; i.e. he empowers his co-actors to bring the best out of them.

Budhia Singh Born To Run

Manoj Bajpai is the name of quality cinema and Budhia Singh – Born to Run is one of those Bollywood movies on sports which shares the actual story of a kid who wanted to run – “just run”. The movie is beautifully scripted and performances are top-notch. Budhia Singh is a must watch for those who appreciate reality-based cinema.


This is one of the Bollywood movies on sports which will be remembered for the kind of performances, execution and confidence which it brings on screen. The main protagonist, Iqbal (played by Shreyas Talpade), is mute and wants to play for the Indian cricket team but doesn’t know anyone else except a drunkard (Naseeruddin Shah) who can help him. Iqbal was Subhash Ghai’s master-stroke. It is one of his finest.

Mary Kom

Mary Kom is another Bollywood movie on sports which highlights the hardships behind every legend. Priyanka Chopra outdid herself in portraying the character of Mary Kom.

Saala Khadoos

Again a movie on boxing, Saala Khadoos features great performances and clap-worthy dialogues. Saala Khadoos is a triumph in Madhawan’s career, although the female lead also amazed with her finest performance in the movie.

I know there are many SRK and Sallu Bhai fans here, so there are 4 bonus Bollywood movies on sports and no one can miss them.
