PLOT: - A movie is a biopic of a man who has lived a major part of his life playing cricket for his country. The movie unwraps almost every detail of Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar’s life. There’s nothing for us to talk about the story of the movie, it is all about the journey of a young boy and his passion for cricket. REVIEW: - None other than the master blaster himself introduces himself on the big screen. Sachin narrates and takes us through the journey of his life. The movie is not a regular drama film, where we see a hero. It is a journey, which is shown beautifully by James Erskine. The way Sachin has done the narration of his story it is sure to make many of his die hard fans emotional. The movie shows how Ajit Tendulkar, elder brother of Sachin Tendulkar recognizes his younger brother's  talent and recommends him to coach under Ramakant Achrekar. How the young Sachin is trained for the game, is one of the best things to see in the movie. It's emotional, it's touching and it's surreal. And director James Erskine has done a great job to showcase that important part of Sachin’s life. His world record of 664 run partnership with Vinod Kambli, is also shown in the film. Which was very important in his career. Thought Sachin’s narration in the film seem slightly weird as we all know that he is, not an actor, but his effort does show as he had to relive those moments again. The voiceovers of Harsha Bhogle, Boria Mojumdar and Gideon Haigh are well used and are nicely placed in the film. James Erskine has made sure to make the film entertaining by adding some of the dressing room videos of Sachin. Some Sachin’s home videos and his wedding video simply makes it worth watching. The film will make the viewers emotional, when it showcases his toughest time in the field at 1999 World Cup, when he lost his father. Popular players like MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne, Virat Kohli and Saurav Ganguly makes it even better. WHY TO WATCH: - If you are waiting for the reviews, then you are not a true fan of Sachin Tendulkar. Every Sachin Tendulkar fan must watch the movie. It showcases the incredible journey of the God of Cricket's and is truly inspiring. You May Also Like – Bollywood Movies 2017 Box Office Collection Upcoming Movies List
