Sachin: A Billion Dreams Movie Review: Find Yourself Cheering ‘Sachin Sachin’ In Theaters Now

Entertainment
This one is a treat for Sachin Tendulkar fans. It's realistic, emotional and highly inspiring. What’s Good: Sachin Tendulkar’s journey in this film looks so real that you even have moments like ‘Aila, Sachin bhi aise karta hai.’ It not only celebrates the personality that he is but also Indian Cricket in all its glory. What’s Bad: Strangely, the film may not come across as a uninteresting affair for those who are not Cricket fans but their idea of it being a feature film certainly doesn’t come true here. The docu-drama with Sachin himself narrating may not appeal to everyone. Loo Break: Not unless Sachin Tendulkar is waiting outside that audi! Watch or Not?: If you are waiting for the reviews to come out, I bet you aren’t true Sachin fans. It is a must-watch for all those who worship t
