MS Dhoni - The Untold Story ( Review)

Welcome to the world of MS Dhoni . Well, part of it.


Reasons why I wanted to watch this movie.



#1. I am a Dhoni fan.
#2. I wanted to see Sushant Singh Rajput act after Kai Po Che.
#3. I wanted to know more about Priyanka (his girlfriend) and Sakshi (his wife).
#4. I definitely wanted to see his struggle.


What I didn't know :

#1. It would be a 3 hour movie.
#2. He related even romance to cricket (the helicopter "thappad" shot).
#3. His friends were his support system.
#4. His girlfriend would die in a car accident. *sob* *sob*
#5. Finding Sakshi to be like Priyanka was a huge coincidence.
#6. The reel Yuvraj Singh looked exactly like the real Yuvraj Singh.
#7. His friends pooled in money to help him reach the Calcutta airport for the Dilip trophy and he             missed his flight by half an hour, Ouch. Hurts.

So here is the review.

Sushant Singh Rajput was awesome ! A semi-fresh face, he did total justice to the role. Disha Patani was nice. But I felt they could have got a better Sakshi. Never mind. Let's focus on the man of the movie. For me, 3/4 ths of the movie were match scenes. Okay Okay. I know it's cricket but hasn't every cricket fan already seen those matches ? I wanted to know more of MSD's personal life.

I admire his struggle, dedication and focus. There is this scene where during a night practice his friend hits a six straight into his crush's balcony.

What we see : Love at First Sight
What MSD sees : The helicopter shot

He looked like the ideal son. If you ignore his obsession for cricket and reluctance to do a proper job. Always respectful. There are like literally no vices in this guy. (His missed his flight for the Dilip Trophy match. All he does is smile. Captain Cool huh. I surely wouldn't have done that.)

The movie keeps you hooked on throughout but during the first half you're actually waiting for the interval. Lets say we're not used to seeing such long movies. But this is the Indian Cricket Captain's story. Chota thodi hoga.

The best and most overwhelming line in the movie:
" Dhoni finishes off in style, a magnificent strike into the crowd. India lifts the World Cup after 28 years and its an Indian captain who has been absolutely magnificent in the night of the finals....."
*tears of joy* and the movies comes to an end.

So all of you who understand cricket OR are an MSD fan OR love Sushant Singh Rajput, Go and watch the film. But remember its 3 hours.

Toh isi baat pe ek sher arz hai :

Unhoni ko honi krde. honi ko unhoni,
Unhoni ko honi krde, honi ko unhoni,
Handsome and dashing,
Mahendra Singh Dhoni

    1. Yaaa....a bit long though...but its Captain Cool we're talking about. His journey to becoming Captain couldn't have fitted in a 2 hour movie.

Mira Road's Son and now Hero - RIP Major Kaustubh Rane

A son, a husband, a father and now a HERO. Gone too soon but not in vain. 

Major Kaustubh Rane (29), resident of Mira Road, lost his life Rane, 29, lost his life fighting for the nation in the Gurez Sector of Jammu & Kashmir on August 7. He was among the four Army personnel killed in a gunfight with terrorists near the LoC in the Bandipura district on Tuesday. His coffin arrived late on Wednesday night and the last rites took place on Thursday morning with full military honours (he was decorated with the Sena Gallantry Medal by President Ram Nath Kovind on the 69th Republic Day celebrations this year).



Police had cordoned off the entire area around his building. Thousands of emotional onlookers (practically 3/4 of Mira Road's population) lined up alongside the road or from building tops and terraces to pay their respects and bid farewell to the man who made them proud and sacrificed himself to ensure their safety.

Close Encounters - Spotting a LEOPARD 12ft away @Nagpur

Presentations, college activities and research work had become my life. Spending 4-5 hours on the laptop and another 3 on the phone had become an everyday thing. Not that I was complaining, but when my college's Nature Club teacher in-charge Prof. Radhika D'Souza asked me if I would like to come on a 4 night, 5 days trip to the Nagzira Tiger Reserve in Nagpur, I immediately said yes. The trip was scheduled from the 28th of December to the 1st of January 2019. This meant that I would be missing my birthday as well as New year in one shot. But trust me, I didn't regret my decision one bit.
Our train was from CST at 3pm. There were around 40 other people on the trip (whom, by the way I didn't know at all; except for a few. But I later on realized that it didn't matter who you knew or didn't know at the beginning of the trip. By the end of it, there wasn't a single person whom you couldn't smile at). This was to be my first long distance train journey. So I…
