Indian limited-overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story released in theaters across the world today and with so much anticipation and excitement about the movie the tickets for the first day were pre-booked at most of the places. The makers have done their part to ensure it reaches the masses and distributed it across 4500 screens for release. So that assured the response as far as the box office is concerned will be an overwhelming one but what we are here looking at is the reaction of people who actually watched the movie.

Dhoni had himself stated that the purpose of the movie is not to glorify him but describe the story of a sportsman and the movie was successful in doing that. The reviews from major critics pointed out that the story of his childhood was very precisely made and gave a lot of details about how he grew up, the challenges he faced and what helped him rise through all that.


The performance of the lead actor Sushant Singh Rajput was lauded by one and all and most termed it the best of his career, of course, it had to be after the hard work he had put in. But a few also complained that it didn’t dig into details of his cricketing exploits. While his journey to the top of Indian cricket was covered to a great extent details after he walked in the Indian team and made his mark were missing.

For the fans, it was an opportunity to view the life story of their favorite cricketer on the silver screen while the critics who were expecting insight on his cricket, some of the incidents and his captaincy were disappointed and didn’t rate the movie as high. Another aspect that turned most down was the run time which was over 3 hours something which is not very common in modern day cinema.
