'Sachin: A Billion Dreams' made tax-free in Maharashtra

Sachin: A Billion Dreams, a documentary drama on cricketer Sachin Tendulkar's life releases today.

Sachin-A Billion Dreams has taken a good opening of 30-35% at the Box Office in the morning shows.

Sachin - A Billion Dreams is a highly recommended movie.

"It's the dumbing down that makes you sigh".

But in a docu-feature that's meant to glorify the man that a country revered (perhaps, still does) there emerges another hero - Anjali Tendulkar. "The real disappointment lies in the absence of any insights", Veera added.

Sehwag and Tendulkar have the seventh highest runs in ODI history - 4387 runs in 114 innings.

But The Times of India gave the movie three stars out of five and slammed what it called the "hagiographic narrative". But online trolls did not even spare the God of Cricket and mocked him for promoting his film extensively! So apart from Sachin you actually get to see his family and friends. However, the film doesn't take chances. People place their priority even before the sport itself, for that was the magnitude of his craze, we all know that at one point or other we have cheered, cried and clapped for this magnificent cricketer.

The entire Indian cricket team also attended the special premiere. "I have watched his film and it's a very handsome, it's an emotional movie as we can experience Sachin's entire journey once again on the big screen". This is a movie that can get the Nostalgia back for the Sachin Fans like me.

Sachin Tendulkar begins the film with proper narration and the way he does that is really fantastic.

"It was an awesome movie. We learned about his social work", said 16-year-old Rayan Kothari. Also, in this telling at least, Tendulkar's personal ambitions seemed to centre on the World Cup one-day tournament more than on five-day Tests, which lends a useful climax to the story as he helps India win the World Cup in Mumbai in 2011 (Tendulkar with the Cup, above). Tendulkar fanatics can also feel the adrenaline rush because the film revisits his introduction to the world-yes, the time when he hit Pakistan's Abdul Qadir for four sixes in one over at the 1989 Exhibition Match.

This movie has an inspiring story for sure. With that, comes an intimate and immediate connection to the person it is based on. Training and practising for a thousand hours was really unforgettable. This, when I know zilch about cricket and practically nothing about Sachin's exploits on the field. A documentary made on Sachin Tendulkar's life and career, narrated by the MasterBlaster himself, the movie is a recommended watch for everyone, whether you are a Sachin fan or not, if you have lived through Indian cricket in the '90s and '2000s (before IPL kinda ruined it up!).
