Cricket moves India like Football moves Germany.
A true testament to a movie well made is when you can make someone – who doesn’t normally follow cricket – cry in their seat and grasp for air because their heart is filled with excitement for the protagonist.
Without going into how much of this story actually represents Dhoni’s life, it is a real fine piece of cinema worth every dollar in exchange for the entertainment it provides. Neeraj Pandey knows how to tell a story, make you relate with characters and root for them.
I liked Sushant Singh Rajput from his Pavitra Rishta days. With Kai Po Che and now this movie he has really proven his mettle. One to watch out for!
At times the movie feels a little long and there were opportunities to cut it here and there but hey I am not going to complain as I was entertained out and out. (8/10)
