Goofs

After Dhoni's birth in 1981, the onscreen text says '5 years later' when we are shown Mr. Deval in Mecon Ltd office. Watching the AV he says 'We are in 90s'. It should still be 1986 if it is 5 years after his birth in 1981. See more »

Neeraj Pandey and his best.....Marvelous shot executed
29 September 2016 | by fillerruthSee all my reviews

Right now maybe everyone should agree on this, Neeraj Pandey is one of the most talented directors of the Bollywood. He has made some outstanding films and this is also a very good film. His all of the films are thriller genre and he is right now a master of the thriller movie. His previous ventures "A Wednesday", "Special 26" and "Baby" all of this 3 movies are highly appreciated by the critics and the audiences. This movie is not a complete thriller movie, Moreover this movie is a biography. But just you think when biography meets with the thriller genre, what will happen? Exactly!!! A very good enjoyable movie. This movie has all the elements what you like to watch. Sports, Drama, Emotion, Action, Suspense and thriller. the perfect combination of all of this.

I am not revealing the story of this movie. You all know Mr. Mahendra Sing Dhoni. He is the captain of Indian Cricket team of Limited version. You know his career in cricket and you know his contribution to Indian cricket. But you don't know his untold story and how he came here and how he made his fame. This is a very emotional journey and very encourageable for everyone.

We all only see how a player plays on the ground but we don't want to know his struggle and his hidden story. This movie tells the hidden story of Mr. Dhoni and reveals his actual character. I am not telling the story but you may think biography movie is not enjoyable. But believe me, this movie will demolish your previous experience about this genre and definitely you will enjoy this. Good storyline, Very good script, Outstanding direction and very good acting made this a good enjoyable one.

If you feel bored after watching Raaz 4 and Pink, go catch this movie. You will not regret.
