CANDID REVIEWS: Million Dollar Arm Could have been So much More! Still good!
Woof! Once again, Hollywood reaches out to India! This time it's Sports. Well, Disney's new movie- the Million Dollar Arm had so much potential just could not lift the on screen drama to reach out to a movie lover's heart.
First Things First- Movie is good for a one time watch!
Secondly, could have been much better than Jerry Mcguire and Seabuscuit there there been Tom Cruise or Mark Wahlberg as the lead actor and Danny Boyle as Director.
The Story is about a Sports Agent, who is on the edge of losing big time on career! The Million Dollar Arm- an Idea to find Pitchers of Baseball (Read- Strong Throwing Arm), from a Cricket lover country-India!
Idea struck where people turned out in big numbers for the competition of fastest throwing arm. Two guys were finally selected who could throw the ball consistently over 80 miles/hour. The two guys were Dinesh (Slumdog Millionaire's Jamaal)and Rinku (Life Of Pie Fame).
The movie is filled with good actors except the lead actor Jon Hamm, everyone has acted good. Another letdown was the background music. Sorry A R Rehman, not quite there this time! Just because the movie is shot in India doesn't mean only Sitaar and Tabla is to be used. And also the Direction seemed average.
Apart from a few spark of brilliance in the movie, movie is average. But the feeling of an Indian being tested on American Soild, will fill your heart with emotions.
The Movie is about togetherness and belief. Movie is about the feeling that, business is run best when you commit to it and put your true heart into it!
Overall a good watch!
Going with a 6.5 Stars(on the generous side)!
