MS Dhoni: The Untold Story is like a calendar of events from the life of India’s most successful cricket captain. It’s really a hagiography. Never an insightful character study of a fascinating and largely impenetrable personality. If you’ve always wondered what lies beneath Dhoni’s calm veneer, or what’s going on in his head when the chips are down, be warned this film doesn’t answer those questions.Which is not to say that it doesn’t work. Special 26 director Neeraj Pandey’s film is a rousing drama. Mostly because our protagonist’s journey from a small-town boy with big dreams to India’s star wicketkeeper-batsman is an inspiring one.

Let me begin with the confession that I know absolutely nothing about cricket. I’m one of the few people in this country who remain resolutely uninterested in the sport. What I can tell you is that Neeraj Pandey’s telling of Dhoni’s life is in equal parts, thrilling, moving and utterly exhausting.But in between this is almost three hours of watching Dhoni become the man that he is. It’s an incredible story of a middle class boy from Ranchi who becomes the richest cricket player in the world.

On the whole, M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story is a sureshot hit at the box-office. It will fly high and fast – much like the ball flies when M.S. Dhoni hits it for a six on the cricket field. Not just in the first week, the film’s collections in the second week will also be outstanding.

Neeraj Pandey's MS Dhoni: The Untold Story is an odd biopic, a rousing rags-to-riches story that happens also to be a hagiographical picture of a flawless protagonist.The film doesn't challenge our perception as much as amiably pat it into place, yet -- thanks largely to a remarkably committed performance by the leading man -- the film scores like a champ.It feels at times like we're watching a highlights package of a game we've already watched and loved, but sometimes that is satisfying enough.

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 journey from being a ticket collector to a renowned attacking batsman/wicket-keeper/captain. However the biopic loses its momentum in the second half with Dhoni’s love life getting undue prominence. Also, the cricketer’s questionable decisions or possible vices are mostly overlooked.

On the whole, M.S. DHONI: THE UNTOLD STORY hits it out of the park with a huge six on the account of its engaging narrative and a brilliant screenplay. In a nation where Bollywood and cricket are considered as religion, the amalgamation of both will work wonders at the Box-Office, setting new records. Don’t miss it for anything in the world. O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G.

A tribute to MSD’s success, this works due to the extensive research. They have touched Dhoni’s tender sides also, but the treatment is likely to suit the protagonist. In short, he may become a cleaner and bigger hero after the film.But, you have to give to Pandey to keep it intriguing enough for you to get hooked throughout the three hours. Unquestionably entertaining. Also, it’s the role of a lifetime for Sushant, and he has killed it.

Sushant Singh Rajput ably pulls off his act as Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Neeraj Pandey promises to suck you into Dhoni’s world from the word go!A languid pace of the first half is a problem. Also, a 3 hour run-time could have been avoided by cutting down on the whole love angle. M.S.Dhoni -The Untold Story is certainly a must-watch if you’re a fan of Indian cricket. Get to know the man behind the composed, confident, match-finisher of Indian cricket team.

Ratings:2/5 Review By:Saibal Site:NDTV
But overall, M S Dhoni - The Untold Story does not mirror the Indian stumper's batting style. It is neither strikingly unconventional nor particularly effective. It is too starchy and deferential to be anything more than an effete paean to the life and times of India's most successful cricket captain.Instead of delving into the complexities of an international sporting career with its share of controversy, the patchy script glosses over the grey areas and concentrates squarely on lionizing Dhoni as a model sportsman.? M S Dhoni - The Untold Story is targeted at fans of the cricketer and they are legion.

On the lop side though the first half of the movie languishes as the director focuses much on exploiting Dhoni’s background and what shaped his sensibilities. His relationships, his hardships and his romantic side consume much screen space. In the second half though the movie gains pace and momentum as the story quickly moves from highlighting the roots that consolidated Dhoni’s position as a level headed chap with grit to his victorious moments. These are the very moments that are etched in our collective memories and Pandey pushes the right triggers to evoke national pride.

This film had potential to present us with the recent Indian cricketing story, warts and all. Sadly it’s more hagiography than biography: the cricketer is reduced to a being singing-dancing Bollywood hero rather than a top-flight cricketer, a master strategist, and a captain who led from the front. True champions have that edge that no one else does: on that score, the real-life Dhoni hits it out of the park, every single time. Too bad the reel Dhoni gets stumped just when he is getting started.

Ratings:Meh Review By:Lokesh Site:Masala
Director Neeraj Pandey creates a heartwarming small town atmosphere in the first half where friends and family cheer for the young Dhoni as the news of “Mahi maar raha hain” spreads like wildfire. The strength of the film is in its beautiful characters played so brilliantly by each one of them. MS Dhoni is yet another safe, simple, decently directed, decently enacted, never-ending ode to Dhoni without any crisis to deal with. Watch it only if you are a Mahi fan

What’s not to love about an underdog who makes it to the big league? Until the film’s interval, things were moving at a languid but engaging pace. It was refreshing to see a Hindi film which did not shirk from showing how ordinary your life can get if you rein in your ambitions. But it’s the second half that lets this biopic down. But what elevates the patchy screenplay in the second half is Rajput’s charismatic performance.While this may not be Pandey’s best Bollywood innings, it’s definitely watchable.

    8. You guys can do Surgical Strikes on Me,But I will say what i feel truth or Just My Insane thoughts-I like Dhoni Bcoz he makes 106 crore per year ,also he charged 20 crore for this movie but never heard him of helping poor or helping hte emerging struggling poor cricketers,I like Dhoni bcoz he keeps Gautam Gambhir equal contributor in Wolrd Cup Final out of team,similarly he has ego clash with sehwag,yuvrah,harbhajan, I like dhoni bcoz he gives chance to Ravindra jadeja,Raina,Rohit Sharma ,who clicks very few times,I like dhoni bcoz his alleged fixing with BCCI chief Shrinivasan ,I like Dhoni bcoz he is not at all technically sounded as batsmen & only hits on Direct to bat deliveries or on slow balls,I like dhoni bcoz his inability to play with left arm spin ,swing ,short pitch & plumb yorker delveries, I like Dhoni bcoz his inability as capatain on foreign pitches & to get the right breakthorugh in bowling selection when needed,adam gichrist,jacques kallis ,steve waugh,ab de villiers are thousand times better than him ,but in India also Dhyanchanji got 3 gold medals in Olympic in his hard struggling life also kapi Dev great all rounder ,captain who got World Cup & played 175 even when he was sick examples of exmemplary sportsmanship,personally I like Dhoni & a Big Fan of Him & This Movie looks will do good business ,There si No Point in Reviewing the Movie as The Concept is Wrong Same Way as The Foundation is Wrong SO The Building on it will be Wrong,I forget this jab India mein Asaram Bapu ko log bhagwan mante hai to Yeh Dhoni Aur Uski Movie ka Business Kya Cheez hai,Once again My Insane thoughts or appearing truth to me ,If You Agree or Disagree Both ways God Bless You

    9. Gautam Gambhir made 94 runs in WC FInal also Yuvraj singh made 57 runs & 2 wickets in Quarter final against australia & also he was man of the match 4 times & man of the series in the tourament but dhoni had a problem with him so kept him out,also sachin played 84 against pak in semi final 2011,while your loser dhoni performance in world cup 2011 dhoni made 0 run against bangladesh in first match , 31 against england in 2nd game,34 against weak team like ireland in 3rd match, 19 against weak team like netherland in 4th game,12 runs against south africa in 5th game, 22 runs against west indies in 6th match,7 runs against australia (quarter final) in 7 th game , 25 runs against pak (semi final), 91 runs against sri lanka(final ) in 8 match. so 8 matches only 1 half century

  5. i dont know, whether you are a hater of Dhoni or you have not seen the movie? But Kindly correct your words "people has also given him lots of Respect & Millions of Rupees". People does not give anything in free, he has earned the respect and for money he works hard in all the fields.

  10. I don't like the movie. It is incomplete biopic. Sushant singh rajput is good as ms dhoni but not that great. Movie is not a complete biopic but it looks like regular Hindi film. It is just an average flick. Watch m.s dhoni: the untold story only if you are ms dhoni's die hard fan otherwise it is avoidable.

  14. एम एस धोनी- द अनटोल्ड स्टोरी:
    औसत दर्जे की ‘धोनी-फ्रेंडली’ फिल्म! [2.5/5]

    “धोनी रांची का रहने वाला है. स्कूल के दिनों में तो उसे क्रिकेट से कुछ लेना-देना भी नहीं था. फुटबॉल खेलता था, गोलकीपर अच्छा था. वो तो स्कूल के कोच सर ने क्रिकेट में खींच लिया. बाद में, रेलवे में टिकट कलेक्टर लग गया था, पर क्रिकेट का जूनून उतरा नहीं सर से. फिर जो एक बार इंडिया टीम में सेलेक्ट हुआ, सबकी छुट्टी कर दी. क्या सीनियर खिलाड़ी, क्या रिकॉर्ड-होल्डर्स! आज भी रांची आता है तो बाइक पर दोस्तों के साथ ‘कल्लू ढाबा’ की ओर निकल जाता है. बाइक का बड़ा शौक है भाई को. हर तरह की, महंगी से महंगी, सब मिल जायेंगी उसके गैराज़ में खड़ी. ज्यादा तो कुछ पता नहीं, पर साक्षी से पहले उसकी एक और भी गर्लफ्रेंड थी.” मुझे यकीन है, भारतीय क्रिकेट के सबसे बड़े सितारों में से एक महेंद्र सिंह धोनी के बारे में इतना सब तो उनके चाहने वालों की जबान की नोक पर रखा होगा. पर यहाँ सवाल कुछ और है, क्या महेंद्र सिंह धोनी पर बनने वाली फिल्म में भी आप यही सब देखना पसंद करेंगे? कामयाबी के पीछे संघर्ष ढूँढने की ललक हम सबमें रहती है, पर अपने चहेतों को ‘हीरो’ मान बैठने की जल्दबाजी में कहीं हम उस वजनदार नाम के पीछे की छोटी-छोटी ही सही तमाम गलतियों, खामियों को नज़रअंदाज़ करने की भूल तो नहीं कर बैठते? एक सच्ची और ईमानदार जीवनी इन सभी संदेहों और शंकाओं से लगातार परे रहने की कोशिश करती है.

    भारत में क्रिकेट और सिनेमा को ‘धर्म से परे एक और धर्म’ की नज़र से देखा जाता है. और अगर ऐसा है, तो नीरज पाण्डेय एकलौते ऐसे फ़िल्मकार के तौर पर उभर के आते हैं, जो अपनी इस नई फिल्म में इन दोनों धर्मों को बराबर तवज्जो देते हैं. नीरज की ‘एम एस धोनी- द अनटोल्ड स्टोरी’ एक सधी हुई ‘सेफ’ फिल्म है, जिसे हम एक ऐसे फैन की तरफ से अपने ‘हीरो’ को श्रद्धांजलि मान सकते हैं, जो अपने ‘हीरो’ को कहीं भी डगमगाने, लडखडाने या हिचकिचाने तक की छूट नहीं देता. हालाँकि फिल्म के पहले भाग में उनका पूरा ध्यान धोनी [सुशांत सिंह राजपूत] के अति-मध्यमवर्गीय परिवेश से उठने और उस माहौल की संवेदनाओं से उपजने वाले डर, झिझक और संयम से जूझने पर ही टिका रहता है, पर निश्चित तौर पर यही वो हिस्सा है जो साधारण, सहज और सरल होते हुए भी आपको बांधे रखने में कामयाबी हासिल करता है. पिता [अनुपम खेर] रांची के स्थानीय स्टेडियम में पंप चलाकर पानी से पिच गीली कर रहे हैं. बेटे की चाहत भी जानते हैं और पढ़ाई की जरूरत भी. हमेशा साथ खड़े रहने वाले दोस्तों की जमात को तो बस ‘माही मार रहा है’ सुनने की ललक है.

    नीरज पाण्डेय अपनी फिल्मों में चौंकाने के लिए जाने जाते हैं. कभी कहानी को कोई सनसनीखेज मोड़ देकर, तो कभी अभिनेताओं के साथ किसी नए तरह के प्रयोग के साथ. ‘एम एस धोनी- द अनटोल्ड स्टोरी’ इस तरह की किसी लाग-लपेट में उलझने की कोशिश नहीं करती, बल्कि एक ही ढर्रे पर हलके-फुल्के उतार-चढ़ाव के साथ चलती रहती है. कुछेक बहुत रोचक और रोमांचक पलों में, युवराज सिंह [हैरी टंगरी] के साथ धोनी का पहला मैच, जहां दोनों एक-दूसरे के आमने सामने होते हैं, फिल्म के पहले भाग में सबसे उत्साहित करने वाला दृश्य बन पड़ता है. फिल्म के दूसरे भाग में, नीरज, धोनी के व्यक्तिगत जीवन और एक से अधिक प्रेम-प्रसंगों में झाँकने के साथ ही कहानी के ‘हीरो’ को फिल्म का ‘हीरो’ बना देने की गलती कर बैठते हैं. एक के बाद एक गानों की लड़ी लग जाती है और फिर अंत तक आते आते आप जिस धोनी को जानने-समझने की उम्मीद ले कर थिएटर आये थे, उसी धोनी की कामयाबी की चकाचौंध में गुम होकर रह जाते हैं.

    शुरुआत के दो-चार खराब ‘ग्राफ़िकली ट्रीटेड’ दृश्यों को छोड़ दें तो सुशांत सिंह राजपूत पूरी तरह से धोनी के किरदार में रचे-बसे नज़र आते हैं, खासकर परदे पर धोनी के चिर-परिचित शॉट्स को जिंदा रखने में. उन पर कभी धोनी जैसा दिखने का दबाव नहीं रहा, शायद इसलिए भी उनका आत्मविश्वास फिल्म में पूरी तरह कायम दिखता है. अनुपम खेर तो जैसे नीरज पाण्डेय की फिल्मों में एक ख़ास तरह की अभिनय-शैली अपना लेने भर तक ही सीमित दिखने लगे हैं. भूमिका चावला कहीं से भी सहज नहीं दिखतीं. हैरी टंगरी युवराज सिंह को बखूबी परदे पर उतार लाते हैं. धोनी के कोच की भूमिका में राजेश शर्मा शानदार अभिनय करते हैं. तमाम एतेहासिक मैचों में विज़ुअल ग्राफ़िक्स की मदद से सुशांत को धोनी बनाने में कहीं भी चूक नहीं होती.

    आखिर में, 3 घंटे से भी थोड़ी लम्बी ये फ़िल्मी पारी, धोनी की क्रिकेट में सबसे यादगार पारियों के करीब भी नहीं पहुँचती, न रोमांच में, न ही इमोशन्स में! [2.5/5]

    1. The perfect review for this movie..The problem is that the people don't have the guts to show the flip side of a person..Its a one sided biopic.

  15. Truly Inspiring... :) MUST WATCH...

    I watched this movie first day first show as I am diehard fan of Cricket and even Dhoni...
    Also I was thrilled to see the tailor of this movie and was decided to watch it FDFS...
    The "respect" for Dhoni raised to the another higher level... Many times during movie i
    sensed goosebumps for few inspiring scenes... Sushanth has acted well and perfect suite
    for Dhoni's role...It's going to be a big break for him... Super direction.. Do not miss to
    watch it in theaters... As a token of respect to our great captain/finisher and human being,
    watch it in theaters ONLY... Complete family entertainer without a single kissing or
    adultery scene... Second half you might feel little bored for his love stories...
    Director has presented his 'cool' attitude very well...
    Over all I rate 8.5 out of 10 for this movie...

  17. 2.5/5 the movie is OK but it misses at many points.. Love story and tough lyf as TC is given more weightage.. As a cricket hero dhoni the legand ko satisfy nahi karti.. 2-4 match hi dikhaye h woh b dhoni ko sirf six marte huye.. Misses something
