    BOI has no clue whatsoever.Taiwan was a total subtitle release(32cr ATM), in china both subtitle and dub versions r playing.In major cities,80-90% shows r with subtitles.250-300cr wld be done from subtitle version in china.In dono ke 280-330cr ko kaun add karega.They r absolutely hopeless,smashed by Aamir in a huge way.Dangal is the biggest Hindi WW grosser,wld be close to 1000cr.

    Looks like Day 21>Day 1 in China for Dangal. Almost likely it will be till day 25 on Monday that Dangal trends below its opening day figures.

    BOI is charting Filmfare path which finally came to its senses and made peace with Aamir to the extent that he agreed to grace their cover page of a recent issue – but thats it – he is still not ON for awards. BOI with its petty games has pushed the towel and now lost all credibility whatsover just like all those award functions….so don’t take them seriously guys…..

    I agree with u.they have lost all the crdibility.There was never even once we heard any praise for Aamir for Dangal BO.Even Aamir hating indicine has heaped praise on aamir.BOI is nothing now.

      But I don’t understand so much hate and partiality by BO sites. Unless you are funded by someone who wants things to be in a certain way.

  6. Eagerly waiting for this one just because Sachin’s name is assiociated with it..Sirf naam hie kaafi hai..This one is a sureshot winner at ticket window as well.When there is a ledgend’s name attached to it, people will surely come to watch it.This may teach some lesson to a group of fanatics here and i hope they might understand the true meaning of a real hero here. A real hero is always above cast, color, creed, age, sex etc etc.

  8. Damn.. all the top comments are of Chinese Dangal and no comments of Sachin’s documentary. Even Sachin has been deprived of his own thread!!

  9. Krish – From your point that in US distributor and producer are same. It may be true in some cases but not always. For example no one was picking Slumdog for distribution until Fox Searchlight stepped in US.

  12. Sachin A Billion Dreams movie review: Meet the real Sachin Tendulkar and you would erupt in ‘Sachin, Sachin’ again

    Sachin A Billion Dreams movie cast: Sachin Tendulkar, Arjun Tendulkar, Mayuresh Pem, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Anjali Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Sara Tendulkar.

    Sachin A Billion Dreams movie director: James Erskine

    Thirty minutes into Sachin: A Billion Dreams, you start wondering why on earth are you watching this film in a theatre. This film is such a treat for the fans of Sachin Tendulkar and cricket that it needs to be watched while relaxing in a sports lounge of a medium. It is laced with great storytelling, amazing real time footage, a sneak peek into Sachin Tendulkar’s life. In fact, it has all the right ingredients to make the sports docu-drama grand.

    The first time Sachin hits a shot in the film is a glorious glorious moment, it is paired with AR Rahman’s anthem, and if you are not a Sachin fan, this will convert you into one. This is not a movie, you won’t enjoy your popcorn and samosa while watching it. It is a docu-drama and it will bring all your emotions together — you will cry, you will fly, and you will catch yourself cheering “Sachin Sachin” and wiping tears of happiness off your face.

      Think he has a point. The ‘image’ of Sachin is such a permanent part of the Indian cultural landscape over the last few decades that it would very hard to accept an actor playing him.

        It’s impossible and would not find acceptance.

        This will do quite well. It’s limited as it’s not dramatised but more documentary style but I can see takers for this. Internationally it can do well.

        Not seen a bad review so far probably unreviewable due to Tendulkar’s stature. His deity like love will be enough. He has a ‘real’ popularity not just in India but in any cricket playing nation, it’s not fake. The UK media always were lured by his soft, well mannered nature and obvious cricket skills.

        • Thats a good point from Sehwag.

          I also think that the struggle element in Sachins life is not evident on the outside. I am sure he has slogged his ass off but that doesn’t make good drama. There is no coming from poor background and struggle to make debut etc in his life. He hit fame quite early as he made his debut at such a young age.
          Also his life is like a open book after he made his debut..
          Dhoni’s life surely makes a more interesting movie.

            Agree most lovers of Indian cricket have followed Sachin’s career to a degree. The movie will not be particularly surprising in this aspect but I reckon his standing alone is going to surprise with a good response for what is like an extended ESPN special.

        • I think Sachin looks so different than usual actors in the industry that it would be too much of a task to find perfect fit to pull away his role. If you take a newbie who looks like Sachin it has chances to come across as spoof. You just can’t take tall person and only Aamir khan can play but if he was 15 years younger and not now. Also Aamir has become too big and he will overtake the movie and the movie will be about his performance than Sachin’s achievements. So, not a good fit IMO. SSR appeared so closely to Dhoni and that sealed the deal once the trailer came. Its not like if you take Akshay kumar Dhoni movie would have been same. (Yes Akshay wanted to do the role badly but his fav director Neeraj was against that idea).

            Shahid Kapoor? But I don’t even think of a younger Aamir doing role. It’s a huge role if played by any actor. It’s better this way.

          • I think folks are confusing by choosing this or that.. coz Sachin himself still thinks they can still make a biopic on his life and this is just documentary. I’m sure they will do it some point in life. Sachin even suggested that Aamir will suit his role in his biopic recently.

    In today’s times – this film would have raced away to 300 cr – one of the underrated films and because of aamir’s one-sided blabbering for NBA – film was a hit but actually was a BB material…
