Starting off from the dusty roads of Ranchi, right down to the sacred stadium grounds of the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in the 2011 World Cup final, M. S. Dhoni The Untold Story chronicles the journey of a man who India has come to see as the one who shaped the collective dreams of a billion countrymen—and the world has come to revere and applaud as a master cricketer and a true gentleman of the game. Mahendra Singh Dhoni was born in a middle class family, with a father who nurtured the dream of his son securing an adequate education and a stable job. Mahi’s dexterity on wicket keeping was first spotted by his school teacher. From that stage on, Mahi encountered an array of people—coaches, mentors, friends and even enemies—all of them who shaped the incredible journey of an ordinary teenager from a small town of eastern India to the most successful captain of team India. Dhoni’s pride and respect for his nation was only mirrored in his commitment in never letting it down. M. S. Dhoni The Untold Story chronicles this untold journey—one which is shouldered with unflinching dedication through the years. It’s an ode to his silent responsibility to his craft, to an unerring sense of focus and perseverance through troubled times, eventually to emerge as one that rewrote a nation’s cricketing destiny—and his own.
