MS Dhoni: The Untold Story: REVIEW
It doesn’t matter whether you are a die-hard fan of MSD or not but this film is surely going to be liked by every cricket fan in our country. Talking about the movie, ‘special 26’ fame director Neeraj Pandey has recreated the life of dhoni in a small town (Ranchi) in the very authentic way. Biopic genre is new to him but the kind of work he has done exceptionally well.
The movie starts with young dhoni whose cricketing skills are spotted by school’s cricket coach Rajesh Sharma. However, his father never appreciates his sports skills and asks him to focus on his studies. But unlike his father, his mother, sister and his friends always supported him. He becomes a local hero in Ranchi as he used to entertain the crowd through his amazing cricketing skills.
Sushant Singh Rajput as again excelled as M.S Dhoni. He has got under the skin of Dhoni so well that it looks as if Dhoni himself has acted in the biopic. From his body language to HELICOPTER SHOT Sushant has accurately enacted everything. One can easily notice his hard work and dedication in the film. Talking about other actors, Disha Ptani is playing Dhoni’s first girlfriend in the movie. The romantic scenes between Sushant and her are really adorable. Kiara Advani has also impressed as Sakshi Dhoni. Anupam Kher has enacted the role of Dhoni’s strict dad.
There are so many goosebumps moments in the movie and one of the best is that iconic world cup winning six by Dhoni. The movie keeps us engaged and unfolds various chapters of Dhoni’s life and the up and downs in his career.
Songs in this movie are very soulful. The best thing about this movie is everything has been kept simple and close to reality. But the only thing that this movie lack is its run-time, which makes it a bit lengthy movie.
