Most importantly, it will be a fitting tribute to the legends who helped India lift its first World Cup. It was a terrific achievement to displace the West Indies Team, which was almost unbeatable at that time. Going by the trailer, the film promises to be an entertainer apart from telling the story that every cricket fan of this generation would want to know.
