MS Dhoni’s New Ad Film Was Made In One Year

MS Dhoni is back on your screens. While the IPL 2022 is still a couple of months away, MS Dhoni, former India, and current Chennai Super Kings captain was revealed in an ad film for Unacademy, an educational technology company.

On Monday, Unacademy released an advertisement starring Dhoni. The ad, titled Lesson No. 7, showed MS Dhoni trying to outrun a fast-moving train with several obstacles laid his way, with a red-coloured ball-shaped object approaching him from the air.

In his dashing style, MS Dhoni breaks through those obstacles, running through some, breaking some, before pushing the last few barriers and using them as a domino to take a flight. With the train moving behind him.

These metaphorical barriers represent the struggles that Dhoni had had to overcome in his life and career to reach the pinnacle of world cricket. Finally, he catches the ball and the black coloured train perishes at his feet.

According to Unacademy founder and CEO Gaurav Munjal, the ad film took almost one year to complete.

“Our most ambitious and Iconic Film till date. Took almost 1 year to make. Lesson No. 7,” Munjal wrote.

This ad gained praise and went viral in quick time; it has been viewed more than 4 million times on YouTube and over 2 million times on Twitter since being shared this morning.

Unacademy’s Chief Marketing Officer Karan Shroff revealed that more than 250 professionals worked on the ad film for over eight months. Post-production work for the film was done in over four countries as Lesson No. 7 used VFX and CGI for special effects.

Former India opener and Dhoni’s teammate, Virender Sehwag, hailed this advertisement “as good as the helicopter shot” Dhoni plays. Renowned cricket commentator and respected personality Harsha Bhogle was effusive in praise for this ad campaign.

Here are some other awesome reactions to MS Dhoni’s new ad film:
