Brilliant Collection - Fantastic editing & direction
6 June 2017 | by ajay-bellubbi14See all my reviews

I have to admit. I'm a hardcore Sachin fan. As per expert reviews, the critics said you will like this movie if you are a Sachin fan. I would have to disagree. You don't have to be a fan to like this movie. Being a fan, I was apprehensive of this movie when I was entering the movie hall. Having lived through most of the major events in his cricketing life and fortunate enough to see him bat in flesh in one of those (2008, Test match vs England in Chennai just after the Mumbai attack in which he scored a 4th innings century), this movie still gives you goosebumps. It gives those wonderful and tragic events in his life. Starting from his childhood, (most of which is enacted since there is no footage of that) until the last speech, this is a ride to endear. The old video footage, at the time of Sachin's marriage with Anjali and later when his kids Sarah and Arjun are growing up, is extremely beautiful and moving. On the cricketing side, you have his captaincy stints, the match fixing scandals, the Greg Chappel episode, his rivalries with Warne & Wasim, the world cup highs and lows and the emotions that go with it, etc. This movie shows how much winning the WC meant to him. It takes you inside Sachin's life and the pressures he had to deal with, the sacrifices he and his family had to make. All in all great direction from James Erskine, great editing from Avdhesh Mohla and a gripping background score/music from AR Rehman. Do not miss it.
