Anupama Chopra Hindustan Times Neeraj Pandey's telling of Dhoni's life is in equal parts, thrilling, moving and utterly exhausting. Rated: 3/5 Jan 9, 2017 Full Review Mike McCahill Guardian Pandey holds this career up as cause for communal celebration, and his film has the big-match temperament to set us cheering - or, in this Englishman's case, politely applauding. Rated: 3/5 Oct 3, 2016 Full Review Rachel Saltz New York Times The movie, written and directed by Neeraj Pandey, is not hagiographic or overly obvious. Instead, it's something of a quiet muddle, with too many squandered or dramatically blurry scenes. Oct 2, 2016 Full Review Renuka Vyavahare The Times of India Despite the glorification, what works is Sushant's impeccable portrayal of a stoic Dhoni and the latter's inspiring untold story. Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 27, 2018 Full Review Rachit Gupta Filmfare [Sushant Singh Rajput] lives the part and makes Dhoni come alive. Rated: 3/5 Oct 30, 2017 Full Review Manjusha Radhakrishnan Gulf News (UAE) While this may not be Pandey's best Bollywood innings, it's definitely watchable. Rated: 3/5 Aug 31, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

Prasoon D Very nice It's a great work and I love it 🙂 #msdhonitheuntoldstorye movie 🍿🎥 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/06/23 Full Review Shivam B Must watch for every cricket fan and in my opinion one of the best sports biopic evermade. RIP Shushant Singh Rajput Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/03/23 Full Review Indian c With a story as fantastic as the one of M.S. Dhoni at its core, it would be hard for a film like this to mess up. Yet somehow, this beautiful story is relentlessly butchered by consistently poor direction and uneven pacing - marking the beginning of the fall of Neeraj Pandey. The movie's only saving grace was an award-worthy performance by all of the cast members. Final Rating: 61/100 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/28/22 Full Review Audience Member Very Motivational Movie.. If You Are Fan Of Cricket U Would Rate It 10/10........ And About VFX It is also good Yeah Some VFX Like Face Replacement Is Little Bit Not Good But Cmon Its A Biopic Some the real footages and face replacement should be there if not its not a fully biopic The Golden Moment Cant Recreated So Its necessary to replace the head Ok... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Everyone knows if the movie was very good, great. And all credit goes to let Sushant Singh Rajput , all actor , director all team members for making this movie better. Dhoni ko or bhi jyada better jaan paya movie or special SHUSHANT sir ki vjh se . Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review yash b This sports biopic hits a lot of notes that I expect this genre to hit. The movie has lots of crowd-pleasing moments and is overall an inspiring story. The problem with the movie is that it is a bit unfocused and tries to touch on too many topics. I am aware that Bollywood movies tend to be longer, but this movie has no justifiable reason to be nearly three hours long. Because of the lack of focus, the movie can feel scrambled and started to drag for me. Despite some flaws in storytelling, the best part of this movie is the lead performance from the now late Sushant Singh Rajput. In the few movies I saw this actor in, I always feel like he was able to come off as instantly likable, which is so important for a biopic of this nature. This movie is one of many reminders that a talented young actor is now gone from the world. Overall, this is a good sports biopic despite some messy storytelling because of a charming and likable lead performance. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
