Sachin: A Billion Dreams hit the screens this Friday and is already on way to becoming one of the top earners of the year so far on box office.Directed by James Erskine and produced by Ravi Bhagchandka and Carnival Motion Pictures under 200 Not Out Productions, Sachin: A Billion Dreams is a documentary cum drama that compiles footage from Sachin’s matches throughout the years and behind-the-scenes, never-before-seen visuals of the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar with his family and friends.

It gives a sneak peek into the life and times of one of the world’s most successful cricketers from the time he was born to the time he retired from international cricket at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.

Despite the fact that Sachin’s film has been shot like a docu-drama and not a typical film was no deterrent for his legion of fans. Highly anticipated since its announcement, Sachin: A Billion Dreams saw a healthy box-office opening on Friday, raking in Rs 8.40 crore. Yesterday, on its second day, the film grossed a further Rs 9.20 crore, bringing the sum to a gross of Rs 17.60 crores. On Sunday, it did even better with a figure of Rs 10.25 crores, meaning the total stands at ₹27.85 crores, which is astonishing for a docudrama.

There is not much of a competition right now at the box office either for Sachin: A Billion Dreams. Half Girlfriend has performed poorly with the audience and the critics and earnings have plummeted in recent days. Also, next week’s releases include only small films like A Death in the Gunj and Dobaara: See Your Evil.

The only movie posing any kind of threat to the box-office earnings of Sachin: A Billion Dreams is the fifth instalment, Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge, starring Johnny Depp, which earned a healthy Rs 4.25 crore on its opening day.

“Considering it’s a docu-drama, #SachinABillionDreams opens IMPRESSIVELY… Fri ₹ 8.40 cr. India biz [Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, English],”  Bollywood trade analyst, Taran Adarsh had said on Saturday.
