Mahendra Singh Dhoni – the name is a journey in itself. One of the most sought cricketers of today and known for his Helicopter shot, MS Dhoni smashed a six to seal off India’s scintillating World Cup Victory in 2011. Five years later, Neeraj Pandey is all set to give us an insight into the real life journey of Dhoni through a reel life, where Sushant Singh Rajput will be our Dhoni. The movie follows the journey of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, a budding cricketer from Ranchi becoming the most successful captain of Indian Cricket Team.
‘There is only one thing common between Dhoni and me : We take our work seriously, not ourselves.’ – Sushant Singh Rajput
MS Dhoni Movie Grand Opening
Since the movie is the only big solo Hindi film release, multiplexes and single screens have reserved almost every screen to beam the film. The movie will reportedly release on more than 3000 plus screens. An average of dozen screens per multiplex has been booked to screen Dhoni. Considering the failed attempts of Banjo and other films to impress the audience, Dhoni is expected to make a flying start on the weekend. Not releasing in Pakistan will not affect much since the collections will be compensated by other international markets.
MS Dhoni – The Untold Story Official Movie trailer
Some stories are never told
The movie is expected to showcase the unseen life of Dhoni. The audience is aware of Dhoni as a cricketer. But in this movie, facts about his personal life will be presented to the audience. And something that has never been seen before, is sure to grab attention!
The makers have left no stone unturned in promoting the movie. The publicity has worked extremely well to maintain the buzz till its release. With Dhoni himself leading the campaign both in India and abroad, one can expect viewers to flock in hordes on the opening day.
Combination of Neeraj Pandey and Sushant Singh Rajput
A combination of a dedicated actor such as Sushant, who has done all that he could, to prepare for the role, and Neeraj Pandey who comes with a backlog of blockbuster hits is sure to hit the mark. The duo has never worked together and that makes the pair even more appealing. Pandey Given Pandey’s penchant of weaving unusual subjects into commercial hits, Dhoni should be an exciting one to watch out for. For Sushant, the movie will be a litmus test to prove his worth. After two successive flops, the actor would be itching to make a comeback in a big way and Dhoni could well be the platform for him to establish himself as a top-notch commercial star.
The film is expected to appeal in an all-around fashion which is likely to bring in the first-day collection of around Rs. 17-18 crore, resulting in the biggest opening ever for a young emerging star like Sushant. If the content matches the hype and the word of mouth is positive, there won’t be stopping the film till Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil release a month later on Diwali.
This is definitely a must-watch for cricket fanatics!
