The movie will showcase the life of Sachin Tendulkar from his Childhood till today. The amazing part is to watch Mr Tendulkar’s childhood. It is fan-shriek too see the family, friends and Sachin himself in his personal space, looped to Dire Straits and Bappi Lahiri with his wife Anjali, his children. The fact that Sachin is the sutradhar who walks the viewer through his victories and injuries is an additional bonus.




We are glad that this is Sachin Tendulkar’s documentary and not a biopic. Which case the facts and what actually happened in Sachin’s life. This documentary is showing things which no one will ever think that Sachin can even do such things. The documentary looks so real with no additions of drama.




Sachin Tendulkar is the name in our heads and the true cricketer fan consider him as the ‘God of Cricket.’ But there will be many who will call him as a gift of god, not everyone has this kind of talent to reach his or her’s goals.

Like every other kid in childhood Sachin Tendulkar was also one of the notorious child, to his brother Ajit Tendulkar recognizing his talent and recommending him to Coach Ramakant Achrekar to train him in the game.



Sachin Tendulkar was indeed a dedicated player, and a young Sachin made to the newspaper with his co-player Vinod Kambli for making a world record of 664-run partnership, playing for Shardashram Vidya Mandir against St. Xavier’s in Harris Shield on February 24, 1988. And from there, the legendary journey began.




The documentary is a big rollercoaster ride from watching the iconic 1996 world cup moments to the entertaining dressing room videos of Sachin Tendulkar celebrating his 99th International century. Wasn’t that the dream, to get a glimpse of as what the mood in the dressing room like?




Sachin Tendulkar life is so simple like an ordinary person which is shown through the glimpse of videos from his home, such as the wedding video, with his kids while playing. His middle-class background has been a key contributor in shaping his personality and particularly that’s where the modesty comes from.

Not just the happy time is shown in the documentary but also the hard time is shown, and it is very hard to control your tears.

Sachin Tendulkar did not back our and he scored a 140 not out against Kenya, thus dedicating his century to his late father. Also, keep your tissues handy when you once again see Sachin’s retirement speech on screen.




A R Rahman’s musical score is thumping and keeps the film’s pace up. The anthem of Sachin is reverberating and one of the best moments is Rahman’s Vande Mataram being played to the iconic 2011 World Cup win post Dhoni’s winning sixer.
