Sachin: A Billion Dreams is a biopic on legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, directed by James Erskine. The film tracks Sachin's journey from an aspiring cricketer to one of the best batsman. The movie features real footage, including clips from Sachin Tendulkar's matches, interviews with colleagues and family and cricketers Virat Kohli and M S Dhoni.
Ahead of the film's release, Sachin Tendulkar hosted a special screening of the film in Mumbai, which was attended by Bollywood celebrities and the Indian cricket team.
In his review for NDTV, Raja Sen said that the film will bring back all our Sachin Tendulkar memories. "Sachin: A Billion Dreams is thankfully not a biopic. 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 writes.
