"Sushant Singh Rajput and Neeraj Pandey talk about 'M.S. Dhoni - The Untold Story'. Sushant opens up on his transformation from himself to M.S. Dhoni. Neeraj talks about the controversy that has been hinted in the promo. Neeraj shares his experience of working with Sushant S.. moreingh Rajput and compliments him for the hard work on Dhoni’s biopic."
"But the film is so rousing, I didn’t care after a while. My advice to you: Forget you’re watching a biopic. Think, instead, that it’s the cricketing world’s equivalent of Creed, an underdog story about a wicketkeeper-batsman who just happens to share his name with a real-life celebrity."
"M.S. Dhoni - The Untold Story has had an excellent first day with collections set to be around 20-21 crore nett as per early estimates in the Hindi version. There is a dubbed version in Tamil and Telugu and that has also done very well. It is likely to be the second highest.. more opening of the year behind Sultan (36.59 crore) but beating Fan (19.07 crore) and also the likes of Housefull 3 and Rustom by big margins."
"If you are a diehard fan of MS Dhoni and cricket (in that order), you are bound to love this film, which reveres its protagonist. Despite the glorification, what works is Sushant’s impeccable portrayal of a stoic Dhoni and the latter’s inspiring untold story - his journ.. moreey from being a ticket collector to a renowned attacking batsman/wicket-keeper/captain."
"The film is a must watch for every cricket lover because it aptly tells the tale of an extraordinary man. The struggles are real and so is Sushant's acting. There isn't any shocking revelation, just inspiration and determination of a born talent who along with right people .. moreby his side, became the legendary captain.
This one hits the boundary with Neeraj Pandey's vision and Sushant Singh Rajput's knockout performance."
Said a cinegoer, "This is truly an inspiring tale. We didn’t quite know the story of how Dhoni became Dhoni the cricketer. His struggle and his rise to stardom from humble beginnings made for a riveting watch."
