    It doesn’t really matter if you are a cricket fan or not, as Jain’s story connects with you at a human level. The documentary is aptly paced, and makes you care for its three protagonists. After premiering at film festivals all around the world, Beyond All Boundaries: Cricket has finally come to India. And this is where it rightfully belongs.
