The magnum Opus we've all been waiting for! Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film features Sushant Singh Rajput, Disha Patani, Kiara Advani in the lead along with Bhumika Chawla and Anupam Kher among others in critical roles. So did the film win the match? Find out.
 

What is the film about?
Without any need of mentioning, the film is a commentary on the life of the man the nation celebrates and holds responsible in every single match. Probably, it is also a portrayal of the religious fanfare the game of cricket wields in India.
 

What makes up the film?
The film focusses on the main highlights since the birth of MSD - his first game of cricket, his first coach, his first job, first love, first century and first world cup!. It gives us a much-needed idea of all the people who are responsible for his success. The family, the friends, coaches, selectors and the fans. And most importantly, his triumph as a successful sportsman and leader.
 

What works?
Everything works to the detail. Special credits to the director for not compromising on the technical details. It was commendable to see Sushanth's face masked into original match and ceremony footages. All cheers to the cast, Sushanth seemed to easily step into the shoes of Dhoni. The script and screenplay deserve applause for celebrating the struggles of a sportsman. More than anything, it's the subject of the film, the man and his incredible journey that have worked in this film. Love you MSD!
 

What doesn't work?
The three-hour long film could have been shortened if Bollywood badmashies such as dramatic song sequences had found their way out of the script. Somehow during the second half, the intensity pitches down to a few low points due to this. But nevertheless, they seemed to be easily excusable.
 

Well?
Overall, the film is a celebration. A celebration of one man’s triumph that leads the nation to its victory. It’s a celebration of all the people behind him. It’s a celebration that is sure to leave you feeling euphoric after watching the film.

Verdict: MSD continues to inspire in his biopic too
