Did You Know?


All international matches including the world cup t20 final which India won against Pak and the finals of 2011 were real and the replacement was only made of Mahendra Singh Dhoni which was played by Sushant Singh Rajput hence giving an original touch to the movie. See more »


Scene when Dhoni (Sushant Singh Rajput) is asked to hand over the papers to the TTE's in 2 different trains and both the trains arrive at the same time at different platforms. Train numbers mentioned by his senior are 8013UP and 802 Down.

Dhoni misses the 2nd train and as per the train board, the train is 12277 Howrah-Puri Shatabdi Express in LHB coaches . However, LHB coaches to the Howrah-Puri Shatabdi were given by IR only in 2013 and the above scene in Dhoni real life would have occurred in early 2000 or late 90's. See more »

A Born Leader & A Living Legend ..... M.S. Dhoni
30 September 2016 | by altaf42049See all my reviews

It is said that leaders are not created rather they are born and such is the case with M.S.Dhoni. This real life based movie truly does justice to the hard work and commitment of Indian Cricket Captain and World Cup Winner M.S Dhoni. Neeraj Pandey has done a fabulous job to put up all the pieces in the desired sequence to create this masterpiece. Sushant Singh Rajput yet again impresses with his on screen performance and persona as everything about him is just perfect from head to toe in the movie. All the features starting from story, dialogues, cinematography, acting, music till direction is well knitted to form an impressive flick. However, the highlight remains Sushant Singh Rajput with his all the talent, skill and perfection doing full justice to the living legend of Indian cricket. It is quite visible that he has done a good research on Dhoni including his hair style, shyness, walking and famous "Helicopter Shot". The film outlines the struggle of M.S Dhoni from a railway ticket collector to the Captain of a World Champion team. It also highlights the issues pertaining to the changes made by him for transforming Indian Cricket team to a World Class Unit. The trend of making movies on real life events is gaining a lot of momentum in Bollywood and this one is the fresh addition to the list and probably the top of the line effort. M.S. Dhoni is already a star, living legend and a role model for cricketers all over the world and this film will surely add to his existing honor and prestige. A must watch film for those who believe in hard work, common man, fair play and M.S Dhoni!!!!
