Of Sachin: A Billion Dreams
, Raja Sen writes in his review for NDTV
that Sachin fans enjoyed it all the more because of its documentary format. "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," reads his review.
