In his review for NDTV, Raja Sen said that the documentary drama will make Sachin Tendulkar fans nostalgic. "What the documentary does well, however, is show just how deeply pressure and criticism weighed on Sachin. How shamefully his children were jeered at in school when his batting wasn't upto scratch, and how headlines and editorials baying for his blood affected the man himself. We are, for better or worse, hearing Tendulkar tell his story his way, and it's interesting to see what he chooses to talk about," he writes.

Directed by James Erskine, Sachin: A Billion Dreams also has appearances by Anjali Tendulkar, Sara Tendulkar, Arjun Tendulkar, Mayuresh Pem, MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag.
