As per in-house review of ‘Maidaan’, “Despite its lengthy runtime of 3 hours, the film tries to justify its duration by diving into the events preceding India’s victory at the 1962 Asian Games. However, some scenes feel unnecessarily dragged, and trimming them a bit could have boosted the film’s pace and cut moments where the audience might feel the urge to yawn or glance at their watches. Even so, much like the Indian team, the movie transcends its flaws to touch your heart, an accomplishment it achieves with aplomb.”
