Well fielded, but long winded
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times
Neeraj Pandey proves that he is a Dhoni fanboy. The movie starts out awesomely well, telling us details about Mahi's early life we eagerly lap up. But we want to know about his growth from getting selected in the team to becoming a captain. We get Bollywood style romance instead and then we begin to look at the time: 190 minutes. Cricket wins, but...
Manisha Lakhne, Nowrunning
The film doesn't challenge our perception as much as amiably pat it into place, yet -- thanks largely to a remarkably committed performance by the leading man -- the film scores like a champ

Sushant is brilliant, the film is not
Business Standard
The on-field activity is convincing, and Rajput makes MSD a winning mix of eyes-on-the-prize focus, square-jawed stoicism and quiet humility
Mike McCahill, The Guardian
The cast has given their best shot and this is apparent on the screen. Every technical work went hand-in-hand to make this one a definite watch. The director also reconstructed the World Cup match scene which simply gave goosebumps to the audience. Most of all, Sushanth should be congratulated for his performance and Neeraj Pandey for delivering this product.
