The year 2020 continues to be a nightmare not only in the world of sports but also in Bollywood. The sudden demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput has raised concerns over mental health yet again and we simply cannot take away his ever smiling face and on-screen energy that made him such a successful campaigner in Bollywood. His role in the biopic of the Indian Cricket Team Captain, MS Dhoni is still remembered as one of the best ever played by a movie actor. Remembering Sushant, we take a look back at the brilliance of his talent in the sports flick and why was it one of the best sports biopic ever made:
It is said that Sushant took over 15 months to immaculate MSD’s mannerisms and style of batting. He used to practice in the nets at a daily level and was trained by ex-cricketer Kiran More, who appreciated his sense of detail. The Indian actor had previously played as a cricketer in his movie Kaipoche and was an instant choice made by MS Dhoni himself while discussing the script with director Neeraj Pandey.
Be it the long hair and flamboyant look, or the sincere ticket collector innocence, Sushant was perfect in giving the audience a chance to look at him as the cricketer and not his original identity. The style of walking like MS Dhoni was also perfectly portrayed as he used to spend a lot of time with him. Sushant’s perfection lied not in the mimicry of Dhoni but his portrayal of the character in his own original way.
From ‘Maahi Maar Raha Hai’ to ‘Phir Aata Hai Yuvraj Singh’, all the dialogues from the movie were iconic, to say the least. The Bihari touch of accent which was converted to a perfect Indian English accent by the actor showed how Dhoni grew his personality in the process of becoming a sensation he truly was.
Screenplay & Story
Right from the introduction to the climax of the movie: Cricket World Cup 2011, the movie showed some incredible screenplay as the story took place in Bihar, Mumbai, and even overseas locations. From Priyanka’s emotional piece to the time he met the love of his life, every detail was closely accurate. Bet, you could feel the goosebumps when he came out to bat in the world cup final and that last ball six with Ravi Shastri’s iconic commentary perfectly closing the movie in the best possible way.
While we pray that mental health & depression gets the limelight & treatment it deserves, we can only hope that God gives his strength to the Late. Sushant Singh Rajput’s family.
