Whether you like it or not, Cricket & Cinema are two things that drive the masses of this nation. And the entertainment quotient is bound to get double when cinema meets cricket onscreen, to an extent that it almost creates a riot in cinema halls.
Hence, obviously, the biographical sports drama — M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, based on the life of Indian cricketer and the current ODI and T20I captain of the Indian team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni — created a huge excitement amongst cricket and cinema fans alike, ever since it was announced.
Honestly, who wouldn’t be excited to watch the life’s journey of our captain cool under whose captaincy India won the World Cup after 28 years.
However, if you are not amongst the over-excited cricket fanatics/Dhoni fans and are still not convinced to watch this film, we give you top 5 reasons why you shouldn’t miss watching this film.
Here are the reasons why we strongly feel you should watch M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story…
The movie is not just about this man being on the pitch. M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story truly celebrates the life of our captain cool. His humbleness, his rise, his fall, his trials, his tribulations, his heartbreak, his family, his friends — Director Neeraj Pandey beautifully unfolds every aspect of this wonderful human being and truly tells us an ‘untold story’ that has gone into making this young boy from a small town in Ranchi to a cricketing sensation called — Mahi. You got to watch it not just to know about his inspiring journey, but to know the down-to-earth man who has not forgotten his roots and is unaffected by all the success he has achieved.
2. Sushant Singh Rajput
When Dhoni said at various promotional events of the film that actor Sushant Singh Rajput has mastered all his moves, he definitely was not saying it for the effect of it or to promote the film. Right from Dhoni’s body language, his walk on the pitch, his mannerism to the famous helicopter shot — SSR has adeptly aped MSD. He will make your jaws drop with his stunning performance.
M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story is directed by the man who has earlier given us brilliant films like A Wednesday, Special 26 and Baby, and with this one too he builds an engaging story onscreen that keeps you glued to your seats till the end. Despite being a biopic, Neeraj masterfully paints the life of this cricketer onscreen, scoring a six with each stroke.
Anupam Kher wasn’t wrong when he said, “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story makes you believe in the power of hard work. It reaffirms your faith in today's youth from small towns. It'll inspire generations to achieve excellence. Story Of India.”
The film that portrays MSD’s journey is not only inspiring but it also tells you to #playbold and to believe in your dreams. A must watch to get motivated and to chase your passion with all your might.
5. Relive the World Cup Moment
Remember that magical night in April 2011, when the whole of India was celebrating the glorious victory of our national cricket team against Sri Lanka at the final World Cup match. Well, the film re-creates that moment once again with real-time footage onscreen, taking you back to the stadium to watch India win the world cup after 28 years. It’s totally worth seeing that magnificent moment again.
