Read the Review:
What we get here is a recitation of facts and figures, of matches played and series won and lost, all from the perspective of Tendulkar’s own performances. It is a bit like Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi, where the supporting cast (Nehru, Patel, Jinnah) play bit roles.

She is one of the most happening girls in the college. However, at times she is haunted by some issues that she faced in her past.

Read the Review:

“What I liked in the story is the simple language and narration. It’s a quick read if you have some time on your hands. It’s inspiring to the extent that it tells you problems are temporary and you can get past them if you believe. Yes, the story does have elements of a love story, but it isn’t completely one.”
