So, I watched the trailer of the MS Dhoni biopic. After watching the trailer, I got ready for lunch and sat by the dining table where my dad was waiting for me.
I asked him about how he felt about the trailer. His answer was slightly unexpected even though I saw it coming. He said “The trailer is itself very exciting. It will be a big hit.” Well, he did make a great point. This will definitely make people sit through the entire film because it is a film that every Indian Cricket desired to watch for a very long time.

Honestly, I think it’s about time people accepted the fact that MSD [Mahendra Singh Dhoni] is the greatest captain in the history of Indian Cricket. People talk about Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Saurav Ganguly etc. but I think the current India ODI and T20I captain is much above them.
Everyone says that Sachin Tendulkar is “The God of Cricket”. There is no argument there, it’s a fact. But If were given a chance to make a declaration, I will not hesitate to declare Dhoni as the GOAT (Greatest of All Times) of Indian Cricket.
I say this because he has achieved everything that a cricketer aspirers to. He won the T-20 World Cup (2007), 50-50 World Cup (2011), and Champions Trophy (2013) and also made India the No.1 team in Test Cricket (2009). No Indian captain has achieved such laurels for the country. Add to that his contribution for the success in the Indian Premiere League (IPL) and he comes across as the greatest.

Now I am eager to know, what has made him the One in a Billion. The untold part of Dhoni’s life, which the flim promises to tell, us raises my interest levels. Here, I don’t care about the stars, I don’t care about Sushant Singh Rajput (who plays Dhoni), Bhoomika Chawla (who apparently plays his love interest), Kiara Advani (sakshi), Anupam Kher (Dhoni’s father) nor I care about Neeraj Pandey (the director). I only care about the story, the untold story of a ticket collector who became the inspiration of a nation.
I’m ready for the first day, first show. Are you?
