The highlight is that the box-collection for Tendulkar’s biopic is growing with each passing day. The film jumped from 9.20 crore on Saturday to 10 crore on Sunday, fresh reports suggest. This means that in three days the docudrama has minted a decent Rs 27.60 crore.
The biopic has overtaken last week's releases, Half Girlfriend and Hindi Medium. It is expected to continue to rake in big bucks, as it is likely to have virtually no competition from next week's releases, A Death In The Gunj and Dobaara: See Your Evil.
Sachin: A Billion Dreams is a biographical film based on the life of legendary cricketer whom we all know as Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. The film beautifully recites the tale of a 10-year-old restless boy who grows up to give a new shape to Indian cricket. Directed by James Erskine, this movie was highly anticipated among the cricket buffs of our country.
The movie has earned massive respect in the reviews and many movie critics even refused to give a star rating to the movie, owing to the greatness of the legendary cricketer’s personality. Renowned movie critic, Taran Adarsh gave a brief review of the movie on his official Twitter account.
Every cricket follower, varying from a 18-year old lad to a 50 year old man were seen with tricolor-painted cheeks and jersey no. 10 in the movie halls. The huge crowd at the multiplexes on the day of its release elucidates that Sachin needs no publicity or promotions, the name in itself is enough.
