Storyline

Story of a boy (Noman Habib) who dreams to become Shahid Afridi finds himself down on luck when the only club he ever knew goes bankrupt. With no place else to go he discovers one last chance to save his club, his town and his dream. A cricket tournament coming to Sialkot which may be the club's last hope. But are they ready yet? A team of misfits with no facility and no coach, can they even qualify for the cup and face the highly skilled undefeated rivals who were born with a golden spoon in their mouths and every facility in their hands? With that question in mind they decide to take help from an ex cricketer Akbar Deen (Humayun Saeed), but Akbar has a dark past of his own. When fates collide and mysteries unfold, "Main Hoon Shahid Afridi" embarks on a journey of Mistrust, Betrayal, Love, Power and Unfulfilled Dreams. Written by UMER GULZARI

Entertainment guaranteed.. forget the Bollywood go and see MHSA....
5 September 2013 | by (Lahore) – See all my reviews

Finally in the third week of its release in Pakistan me and my friends managed to catch this much hyped and anticipated film. We were not expecting so much from it but it is actually way better than a lot of good films we have seen in Bollywood, but comparing it to any Bollywood or Hollywood film will be unfair.please go and watch it with your friends it is really entertaining, it is a mass oriented, comedy ,Sports Drama and will make you to laugh and shout in the cinema. Vasay Chaudhry have done great job with the writing the story was good and the dialogs were really really good. The Directors work was fine but there was some dis-continuity in some scenes and I think they had to cut some parts during editing to reduce the runtime of the film. The Music was good especially the song 'Malal' which was sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. As for the performances are concerned we saw some great performances from the Actors Like Shafqat Cheema and Ismail Tara, I always loved Tara on the TV shows and now I am a big fan of Shafqat Cheema His performance was even better than his role in 'BOL'. Hamza Abbasi who played the religious Pakhtoon was very impressive and really stole the show, His dialogs and performance forced us to shout and clap especially the dialogs like 'Pathan ko bewakoof samajh rakha Ha kya' and 'Ye Tamara Papa k lye Ha, Jao ball leke aao'.. Noman Habib the lead actor who played Shahid was very good and so was Humayun Saeed.Nadeem Baig Saab was Good as Akbar's father, Javed and Shahzad Sheikh were average in their roles Mahnoor Bloch was kind of good and the Aini was also okay and Mathira's Item song was a bit of the Bad stunt.All the supporting and junior actors were really good and This was a very good watch we really enjoyed ourselves and I would highly recommend this film to all cinema goers, Hats off to the Producers and filmmakers and Best of luck for their future projects, I can Proudly say that I am a Sialkoti and that Pakistani film industry is moving towards the good days..
