MUMBAI: Cricket is nothing less than a religion in India and to build on the recent Cricket World Cup phenomenon, &pictures, India’s premium Hindi movie channel, post the successful presentation of Amir Khan’s unreleased film ‘Chale Chalo’ has set itself apart by airing the glorious documentary – Beyond All Boundaries directed by Sushrut Jain. The channel, known to raise the bar with its differentiated offering each time has scheduled this gripping tale of three ordinary Indians and their love for an extraordinary sport. The film touching the life of three ardent cricket fans Sudhir Kumar Chaudhury –the biggest Sachin Tendulkar fan, Prithvi Shaw - the young prodigy in Indian cricket, and Akshaya Surve - a talented young female cricketer who dreams of making it to the Indian women's team will premiere on Saturday, 14 March at 2:20 pm.

Speaking of the World Television premiere of Beyond All Boundaries, Zee Hindi Movie Channels deputy business head Ruchir Tiwari stated, “At &pictures, we are constantly innovating the content we provide to our audience and with Beyond All Boundaries we had an opportunity to showcase something unusual and inspiring. India being a cricket-loving country, this documentary is a tribute to them and give viewers a glimpse into the sport. We plan to bring more such unique films that are entertaining, distinctive and engaging.”

Beyond All Boundaries featuring prominent cricket players such as Saurav Ganguly along with Yuvraj singh is co-produced and skillfully narrated by Kunal Nayyar famous for his nerdy astrophysicist character ‘Raj Koothrappali’ from the successful American sitcom The Big Bang Theory. The film describes cricket as a metaphor for life in India encapsulating the emotions of cricket fans during 2011 World Cup. The film effectively depicts an ordinary fan’s addiction to the game, the desperation for winning a World Cup after 28 long years and the breathless excitement during the last overs of a match. The film also beautifully captures the purest form of devotion from the three lead protagonists to their beloved game.
