MSD – The Messenger of cricket’s God

Please note this is a humour article work of pure fiction

MSG: The Messenger of God is an upcoming film, which is directed by spiritual leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who also stars as the main lead in the film. The story revolves around the hugely popular spiritual leader, who successfully eradicates various social evils and, in the process,makes enemies who conspire to kill him.

The film has attracted amusement right since the launch of its posters and trailers and is perceived to be another unintentional hilarious flick in the leagues of Gunda and Deshdrohi. However, the film has been denied the release certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and has been sent to the release committee. Various religious groups have demanded a ban on the film and it has been in the news lately for not the right reasons.

The above poster is inspired from MSG, and is titled MSD, and stars the Indian One-Day International captain MS Dhoni. The cricketer’s passion for bikes is well known and we see him riding one with his trademark Mohawk-style that he once sported.

While his biopic, directed by Neeraj Pandey, will deal with his rise in international cricket, this film directed by Dhoni himself will be all about how the cricketer has over the years tried and proved the critics wrong and marched forward to glories.

Despite of a string of lows post 2011 World Cup triumph, Dhoni hung on the job of captaining India and enters the 2015 event in Australia and New Zealand as the defending champion. The film will also see Dhoni’s close associates Ravindra Jadeja, Suresh Raina, RP Singh and ICC boss N Srinivasan among others in key roles.

If Sachin Tendulkar is the “God of Cricket”, Dhoni surely can be His Messenger, who has done a lot of good for Indian cricket. It was Tendulkar who recommended Dhoni for the India captaincy. Dhoni himself has deep reverence for the Master. “Tendulkar is my sporting hero and because of the aura he carries, I still have difficulties speaking up to him outside a cricket field”.

We wish the Indian captain ‘good luck’ for the World Cup, and hope he races past all the teams to lift the coveted trophy for the second consecutive time.
