A Billion Dreams – Sachin

In an age of biopics and feature films, it was indeed an interesting choice to pitch the story of Sachin as a docu-drama. Now before I get on to any details of the film, in 2 hours 20 minutes, the film entails the story of the man that is behind the legend Sachin Tendulkar, in a chronicle that compels us to plunge at the nostalgia of the man we love and adore the most, but disappointingly enough, the film fails to apprise the controversies and disputes that happened behind the…

Racism in Football : No dark brains in the game?

It is no secret that racism has been an abhorrent part of football for ages. Though a number of measures have been taken to ameliorate the situation over the past three decades, there still exists a key indicator which corroborates the fact that racism in football is still omnipresent. The football model followed in the United Kingdom certainly testifies to this – There are barely any dark-skinned coaches or managers employed at the highest levels of football. The Premier League doesn’t have any dark-skinned individual in the managerial role and…

Borussia Monchengladbach : The start of something beautiful?

To describe this season for fans and followers, and anyone with vested interests in the football club of Borussia Monchengladbach, one word suffices- misery. Hoping to live up to what Lucien Favre had tried to set for them, a permanent place in German football’s top 4, Gladbach started off another campaign with a 2-1 win over potential top 4 rivals, Bayer Leverkusen, (who for their own troubles seem to also have fallen off the upper half of the Bundesliga, possibly permanently), but soon started off with their old woes- timid…

The History of Boxing day

No, Muhammad Ali wasn’t born on the 26th of December, neither did the fight of the century between Ali and Joe Frazier take place on this day – for the matter of fact, the day got to do anything with the pugilistic sport, yet, for some reason, the day is known as Boxing day in certain Commonwealth nations. Have you ever felt infuriated because you had to go to work on a holiday? Or, do you know anyone who holds a position which needs to be exercised even on a public…

Dangal: An Inspired End To 2016

There is Shah Rukh Khan as Raj in DANGAL & so is Salman Khan’s SULTAN on the internet, whenever & wherever you will search for DANGAL. But there is only that much of Aamir Khan as Mahavir Singh Phogat in the movie as there should be, which stands totally opposite to what extent he should be keeping in mind that this is Bollywood. This is that time of the year again when quote for the season’s greetings are searched on neck-to-neck with the review of an Aamir Khan’s release, that…

Another footballing anecdote is still being scripted as the year draws to a close – This time in the home of the world champions. A story which commenced only…

Reviewed : MS Dhoni-The Untold Story

The life of India’s most efficacious captain embeds within itself so much darkness, so many controversies and contortions that putting up a title like MS Dhoni-The Untold Story is a mirage to us. Produced by Rhiti Sports, which again is (in)famous for the alleged ownership and stakes held by Mahi, puts a very sardonic end to the puns which went around stating how much money has Dhoni charged for the rights of his biopic. The man who has been exhilarating Bollywood with his thrillers like A WEDNESDAY, SPECIAL 26 &…
