Neeraj Pandey has conceived the film around the life of M S Dhoni from his childhood till date! How a common guy named Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Sushant Singh Rajput) hailing from Ranchi realises his dream and the hurdles he goes through while achieving his only dream form the crux of the story.

The plot of the film also throws light on the tragic love life of Dhoni and how yet again, he found the love of his life in Sakshi (Kiara Advani). How Dhoni met Priyanka Jha, his ex-girlfriend (Disha Patani) and how an unfortunate incident changed Dhoni's life forever!

'Sushant Singh Rajput is an average actor,' if you're one of those, who used to say that, be ready to eat your words. You won't stop raving about this extremely hardworking actor after watching this film! There isn't a single second in three-hour long film, where Sushant lost the grip. From Dhoni's body language to his typical tone, from those long hair to the helicopter shot, Sushant Singh Rajput has nailed it! His genuine acting throughout the film is the solid proof for how dedicated this actor is and no one could have pulled out this legendary character on-screen better than Sushant!

Overall, it's a different experience to watch the struggles and lesser-known truths about Dhoni's life. This movie is one of a kind and it's an instant 'Yes' from our side!

PS: Be ready to whistle and clap, because the crowd will not let you sit silently! After all, it's Dhoni on the screen!

Dhoni, for us, is a household name and when saying this, we are speaking on behalf of millions of people in the country and also outside of it. To know the story of the very person who has garnered millions of fans of himself just by doing something he is passionate about, is something every person will look forward to irrespective of whether he or she is a cricket follower or not.

Neeraj Pandey and Sushant Singh Rajput have stolen hearts trying to put forward this story for us and even though the runtime of 190 minutes would normally feel like a drab for most movies, this one was far from it. M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story is a must watch for every single in the person as it is an immediate reminder to people that there is nothing which can be deemed impossible in life if one works hard enough to achieve it.

The movie will get you close to Dhoni like never before and it will be with you every time you watch him go onto the field, take his stance and blast the ball out of the park “Classic Dhoni Style”.

Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput knocks it out of the park as the former Indian captain M.S. Dhoni in this eponymous biopic. From the lopsided gait to Dhoni’s self-effacing demeanour, Rajput makes it his business to be convincing as the small-town boy who becomes India’s top cricketing legend and he strikes gold. Directed by Neeraj Pandey, who gave us taut thrillers such as A Wednesday and Special 26, this biopic does a splendid job of bringing alive the Indian middle-class milieu.

Apart from a couple of scenes touching upon Dhoni’s unconventional decisions taken as a captain such as removing a couple of established players from the team, the film doesn’t offer any insight into the interesting episodes on the professional front. We don’t want the dirt, but at least give us the gritty bits. But what elevates the patchy screenplay in the second half is Rajput’s charismatic performance. It’s difficult to take your eyes off him. He’s so assured in his role that it’s compelling to see him transform himself from a diffident ticket collector in an Indian railway station to one of the world’s best batsmen and captain. Give this film a shot for Rajput and the sturdy support that the supporting cast gives him.

While this may not be Pandey’s best Bollywood innings, it’s definitely watchable.

The story plot deals with the other side of Dhoni’s life . A young man from Ranchi to the Indian Cricket team is the story. The struggle and hardwork he did to become one of the most successful batsman cum Skipper and how he transferred as a cricketer from the Railway Ticket Collector. It deals with all his helicopter shot, his small smile and his calmness in field.

Comming to the performance department , Sushant Singh Rajput has actually lived as MS Dhoni in the film , his hardwork to make him look like Dhoni is clearly evident . This movie will be one of the biggest in his career. In many of the scenes we can actually see Dhoni’s mannerism on screen. Apart from Ranput , the female lead Kiara Advani as Sakshi made her screenpresence well. Anupam Kher as Dhoni’s father also does his role with ease.

All Mahi fans get ready for the Goosebumps moments !!

It is MS Dhoni’s another side of life, the untold life history diary of Indian cricket team captain. A young man from Ranchi to the Indian Cricket team is the story. The incidents happened in-between his growth is the strong story of this film. How he became a most successful batsman and how he became as a most needed skipper and how he transferred as a cricketer from the Railway Ticket Collector. This biographical film explains clearly about the hard work and dedication about the passion. It also shows the secret behind his calm at the ground at the end of every match. His special helicopter bat, smiles and another untold side of MS Dhoni.

Neeraj Pandey showcased his total talents in this film along with the help of cinematographer, Santosh Thundiyil. The brilliant display and the dialogues are simply awesome. All the expectations about his directorial film are there on the screen today. He showed the present Indian ODI captain and best finishers life history in 185 minutes.

The Name MSD or MS Dhoni or Dhoni or even his full name Mahendra Singh Dhoni already had some vibrating power. After this film, it is shining more than that as supernatural power and looks like above than that. It is worth to watch at the theater. Full of inspiration, Positive thoughts and it is the story of most wanted Indian Cricket Player.
