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

Super Hit Just like the trailer Sugested
4 September 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Like the trailer the film was awesome enjoyed every bit of it . The songs were good movie was funny and fun and really kept you engaged the whole time its a bit long but not at any time boring . I urge all cricket fans and in particular Shahid Afridi fans too come forth visit your local cinema and support this film .I want too see more of Mahnoor Baloch in the future . The Item song was too good. What i liked was how beautifully it portrayed the dreams of a young man who wants too embed his hero, It shows how a team should not rely on one player but the entire team. It truly is a work of art and a sign of the revival of the Pakistan Film industry. All i have too say in the end is Peace out and keep them coming.
