Of Sachin: A Billion Dreams, Raja Sen in his review for NDTV said: "This is a documentary not merely about the man with that name, but one narrated by him, one where he tells his own story in his own words. It is not journalistic or incisive or probing. It feels, instead, intimate - as intimate as it can feel, anyway, for a film where an audience claps and cheers alongside those who clapped and cheered live, years ago. Which is to say: it is us today applauding in time with us yesterday." He gave the docu-drama 4 stars (out of 5).
Sachin: A Billion Dreams is directed by James Erskine and features Sachin Tendulkar and his family - wife Anjali and children, Sara and Arjun. His colleagues MS Dhoni and Virendra Sehwag also made an appearance along with actor Mayuresh Pem.
