Its documentary format adds a new color to it. Despite some flaws, this effort is new in the context of Indian cinema, which will certainly open doors to new possibilities, including not only cricket, but also the historical victories of other sports and the experiences of the players associated with it. Documentation can be done in documentary format forever. Which will fill the youth with a new enthusiasm along with entertainment.
The story of Under Dog becoming the champion
Talking about Bandon Mein Tha Dum, this sports documentary tells the story of the historic victory of the Indian cricket team in the year 2020-21, in which the world’s No. 1 Test team, Australia was defeated on its own soil. The special thing is that there were no special names of Indian cricket in this historic victory, without which we cannot imagine any victory. The story of courage, dedication, hard work and sportsmanship of a young Indian cricket team is depicted through match footage, interviews with players and journalists.
These things were effective
The story of this historic victory has been told through four episodes, the names of these four episodes are inspired by the films of James Bond. After all, this brave story of Indian young cricket players was no less interesting than the James Bond film. Limiting the series to four episodes is one of the good aspects of this docuseries, not being unnecessarily stretched. Serious injuries of on-field and off-field players, the pain of losing loved ones, the exit of Team India in the Quarantine period, the Pink Ball, were involved in many controversies, those sides were exposed. What was on the mind of the players at that time? It was going on. How they were motivating themselves. How they were devising strategies together. All these aspects make the series interesting. Every episode of the series shows the spirit of the cricket players.
Talking about this documentary series of Under Dog becoming champion, then the amount of drama was attached to the original series. It has not been so effective in its narration that non-cricket lovers can join this series. Trying not to put too much drama, but watching this series, you miss those dramas. Many cricketers are not able to describe the situation in such a way that you can stop or be surprised. Jimmy Shergill Series in the role of narrator. He has been average. There was a need to work on the background music of the series as well.
A gift for cricket fans
If for some reason you missed this test series, then through this web series you can live those moments. If you had seen the series, it would bring back those old memories. Overall, this series is like a treat for cricket fans.
