Sachin A Billion Dreams: Review

With a run-time of two hours and 20 minutes, the primary half of the movie is attention-grabbing and quick paced. It dramatically ends on a sombre poetic word. The second half strikes at a slower tempo and fatigue units in, however the movie is inspirational. With editor Avdhesh Mohla’s easy transitions and efficient background rating by A.R. Rahman, this effectively mounted documentary will attraction to cricket followers and each Indian.

The script designed by director James Erskine and Sivakumar Ananth seamlessly encapsulates Sachin’s life with archived footages from his personal movies, cricket matches, news clips and clips from varied speaking heads like ex-cricketers Sunil Gavaskar, Vivian Richards, Wasim Akram, Ravi Shastri, Shane Warne, Ricky Ponting, Virendra Sehwag, M.S. Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Harbhajan Singh, sports activities journalist Gideon Haigh, commentator Harsha Bhogle, cricket historian Boria Majumdar, singing legend Lata Mangeshkar and megastar Amitabh Bachchan amongst others. Collectively, they offer a good perception into the lifetime of Sachin.
