Truly inspirational !!
8 June 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The direction cinematography and music is just amazing. It is emotional and motivational.Didn't know about Pele so much before .Too good I am going to watch this movie whenever i fell down ..Thanks a lot.the movie was so emotional at times made me cry.The whole movie moves in a flow and you feel how much pain he has to take to get there.The movie also shows the situation of Brazil during 1950's.Music by A.R.Rahman was magical it blended so well with the theme.My respect for Pele has grown too much.The world cup scenes are accurate comparing with the score board of 1958 world cup.Hope to see more such movies .The movie is little bit similar to "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" if anybody of you have seen it.I recommend you to watch the trailer first and then the movie "Pele"
