Goofs

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 »

Why to go and see MSDhoni - The Untold Story
30 September 2016 | by rajradSee all my reviews

DHONI - The Guy and Within

A quiet winter morning, the sun barely able to make its presence felt through the haze. A small second floor flat in a building desperately asking for a makeover after the elapsed monsoons. A few pigeons eating out of the hands of a child hanging out in the balcony. This is a typical moment in the lives of millions who inhabit the so called 'small towns' in India. Yet, this was the start of a journey, for a person called Mahi.

An avid goal keeper in school, whose 'dodging the ball' skills were spotted and honed into a successful wicket keeper by his teacher. Every successful face has a story to say. Rarely do we get to know facets of people whom we idolize. M S Dhoni – The untold story, is an endeavor to try and unveil a few pages of his life and give a peek behind the face of Dhoni, into his heart and mind.

Many anecdotes we may know of and recall, but then so many we don't. Interesting to witness those. Not to forget all those who played such a vital role in shaping him as an individual, prodding him on as a sportsman and helping him groom and grow. The movie gives due credit to all those.

The movie tends to go back and forth a bit as if unable to choose whether to show his cricket prowess or peek into his personal life. Sushant Singh Rajput seems to have worked hard in impersonating him on field. And the ladies in his life showcased by two new faces have done a commendable job in this film. Am sure will be spotted by noted talent spotters after this. That's going out for Kiara Advani and Disha Patani. Wishing you'll the very best.

Anupam Kher, Rajesh Sharma (hehehe my name sake), Bhumika Chawla and others have done a good job. A good learning for all the kids. Perseverance, dedication and the will to succeed can get you places. And can make you who you are destined to be, not merely who you might choose to be.

Critical review of the movie am leaving to those who are best at it. Here are only highlighted reasons why you should see it.

Just 35 years of age. Yet so much to share. That's Mahi or Dhoni for you. Go see, feel, live a slice of his life, for that's what you will manage in about 3 hours when they try and capture a lifetime of experiences.
