Dhoni is the most awaiting movie of 2016. M.S. Dhoni is the untold story of Indian Cricket team Captain’s journey from ticket collector to Cricketer. Currently these year we have seen Azhar- Movie based on real life of Cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin, which was rejected by the audience and flop on Box Office. Will M.S. Dhoni lands in the list of hit biopics or join the list of flop biopics. Let’s analyse…

Movie starts with the final match of India V/S Sri Lanka at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai where Dhoni hits winning six and helps India to win the World Cup 2011. Then movie went into back flesh and shows us the childhood of M.S. Dhoni, shows us struggle of M.S. Dhoni to be a famous cricketer. After many attempt for Indian Cricket team, He does not get chance. One day He got an offer to job as TC in Kolkata. He accept the same and went to Kolkata for job, but due to his passion for cricket, He left that job and again went to his home town. After several tries He get chance to play for Indian Cricket team. One day while travelling in plan, he meets to Priyanka Jha (Disha Patani) and they fall in love with each other.

One day suddenly, He met with Sakshi (Kaira Adbani) and they start meeting to each other. They fall in love and get married. After long back flesh, story continues where its stop. The final game of India V/S Sri Lanka.

M.S. Dhoni has everything to offer to the audience. Drama, Romance, Superb performances, tight screenplay and story line, which hooks to the audience till end though movie has run time of more than 180 minutes. Director Neeraj Pandey was known for his Thriller movies like ‘A Wednesday!’, ‘Special 26’ & ‘Baby’. Currently these year as a Producer also he has given super hit movie ‘Rustom’. These time Neeraj Pandey has tried different genre and he has excellently handled it.

If we talk about Performances, Sushant Singh Rajput has done excellent job and given complete justice to the role of M.S. Dhoni. He carried the full movie on his shoulder. He is back bone of Movie. Anupam Kher as ‘Pan Singh’ (Dhoni’s father) performed very well. Other Actors- Disha Patani as Priyanka Jha (Dhoni’s Girlfriend), Kaira Advani as Sakshi Dhoni, Bhoomika Chawla as Jayanti Gupta (Dhoni’s Sister), Herry Tangiri as ‘Yuvraj Singh’ helps movie to move forward and have done decent job.

Overall, M.S. Dhoni is the most magnificent Biopic comes out from Bollywood in recent time. Must Go For it. Worth Watching.
