Sushant Singh Rajput, Disha Patani and Kiara Advani's M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story hit the screens today and while most of us can't wait to watch the film, our reviewer Sreeju Sudhakaran has already seen half of the movie. During the interval he told us a brief of what the film is about, how is the flow of the movie and what did he liked and didn't like in the film. Here's what he had to say, "Mahendra Singh Dhoni is definitely one of the most loved and followed sportspersons, forget cricketer, in India. The following that he commands is enough for his biopic to bring in the crowds. Plus, you have a talented actor like Sushant Singh and a brilliant director like Neeraj Pandey in the mix, so expect M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story to bring in the crowds. That's what happened when I saw the biopic First Day First Show in a nearly full show, with the audience cheering every time Sushant Singh Rajput as Dhoni hits a six. It's like watching Captain Cool himself playing that shot. Okay, forgive me for gushing. I am not a Dhoni fan, but a cricket fan, so any story of a talented cricketer struggling to reach the top is definitely appealing.
MS Dhoni: The Untold Story narrates the untold journey of Indian ODI captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni from a lanky school kid in Ranchi, who actually wanted to play football, to the swashbuckling wicketkeeper cum batsman that we know him today. The film begins with Dhoni's school coach discovering his talents at wicket keeping, his father's initial reluctance and later acceptance of the fact that his son is better off as a cricketer than as a Government employee and Dhoni's own struggles to make it to the Indian team, as he works as a TTE at Kharagpur station. The film moves breezily in the first half from one incident to another, as we get invested in Dhoni's life and career. Several moments stand out like Dhoni seeing his father wake up in the night to water the ground, his first match with his future rival Yuvraj Singh, and him not coping with his railway duties. And yes Sushant Singh Rajput is terrific. ALSO READ - 7 stills from Sushant Singh Rajput's M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story that will make you EXCITED for the biopic!
But is the film flawless? Not at all. The film needs some serious trimming as the first half continues to stretch enough to nearly make you restless. In the hands of an inferior director, we would have been snoring by now. But Neeraj Pandey's deft direction makes the film watchable. Hoping to see more cricket and Sushant's brilliant performance in the second half." ALSO READ - Sushant Singh Rajput's M.S.Dhoni: The Untold Story will earn Rs. 40 crore in its opening weekend!
