Plot: Ranchi boy Mahendra Singh Dhoni dreams big and wants to become a successful cricketer someday. But on his father’s insistence he reluctantly takes up the job of a ticket checker in Indian Railways. As time passes, his frustration with his life keeps on increasing and he eventually quits his job to get back to cricket. From there on wards, his life was a history in making.

What’s good?

The cast, story and and acting. Sushant Singh Rajput was perfect as Dhoni while Anupam Kher did a commendable job as well. Every small detail of the game was taken care of. Right from how Dhoni held his bat while hitting a special  six or the way he looked towards the flying ball. As per news reports, the film was very accurate with its details, not a single portion was changed or exaggerated.

What’s not?

The length of the film. It was in fact the only factor which could effect the film’s overall performance. Dhoni’s every major score was covered through the film which after sometime felt unnecessary.

What to do?

Watch it for the great acting and to know the story of man who led India towards victory by picking the Cricket World Cup trophy after 28 years.
