India‘s favourite son, Sachin Tendulkar bid farewell to cricket on his home turf in Mumbai on November 16, 2013 in a teary eyed farewell. Veteran sports journalist Jasvinder Sidhu, made an autobiography on his final few innings starting from the legend’s final Ranji Trophy match in Lahli, Haryana to his bow out in Kolkata and Mumbai, amid all the fanfare and adulation.
The documentary, 37 minutes long also features the determination of the common man on the streets of India, from ages six to 60 to witness Sachin’s final innings in flesh and blood and the sacrifices he makes to get there to watch his final knock against the West Indies.
The documentary is called “Last Goodbye to 22 yards”. The man who put this documentary together, Jasvinder Sidhu, said “This film is a tribute to the greatest cricketer the world has ever seen. This 38-minute film, subtitled in English, is like a documentary evidence of what exactly Sachin means to India,” said Sidhu.
“It has been an amazing experience making this film. From a three-year-old girl to a 64-year-old retired government official, everyone eagerly wanted to be a part of Sachin’s journey,” he said. The film will also be available on Facebook and Twitter.
