The highly anticipated biopic of India's most successful captain had finally hit the screens today. I saw the movie and I can say, this is definitely one of the best biopics ever made in Bollywood. I would rate it at par with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. The movie covers the personal, professional, cricket journey of MS Dhoni and how he became the greatest captain of Indian cricket from a normal Ticket collector in Railways is shown with absolute finesse and engaging screenplay. Lot of inspirational, heart touching moments and people who follow cricket would enjoy and connect with the movie a lot more. The movie has not tried to focus much on his life in the dressing room or his relationships with other cricketers or his teammates or any controversies , but more on his personal journey. Highly recommended and Sushant Singh Rajput has delivered performance of lifetime.

People may hate biopics as they tend to glorify the character, but then we dont churn Biopics like romcoms, so once in a while is fine and bipocs should be made on people like Dhoni or Sachin as that can serve something more than entertainment in a movie.

@avi256 .. No I mean...now if Dhoni wants to bargain for a flat...what a shame...Dhoni's wife wants to bargain with vegetable vendor, what a shame...after they are gone it is fine, when they are alive...give them space..

@vandana7 It was little surprising to see a biopic made on cricketer who is still playing and had not yet retired from ODI and T20. But covers his journey till 2011 world cup only and mainly emphasizes on what struggles and his mindset through those years. It tries to tell us more about his mental state on success and failures.

The film might be great, but do you think its worth all the money and effort to make biopics on cricketers? I mean, there are so many more influential personalities that the country needs to know of... Isn't this an unnecessary luxury?

@Jainash I agree that there are lot of other influential personalities on whom the movies should be made. But at the end of the day, movie making is a business and filmamakers want to cash in on biopics that will raise tremendous curiosity amongst nation and making movie on MS Dhoni was a clever and calculated move, as cricket and Bollywood is an impeccable combination, and the connect MS Dhoni can get with viewers, it was bound to be a blockbuster. The collections of first two days prove that it is already highest earning movie of the year after Sultan. We have biopic on Sachin Tendulkar also coming up in few months. The best part of cricketer biopic is that it creates a stadium like atmosphere in theater and it is usually so called " Paisa vasool"
