Does Maidaan live up to the hype?

Definitely, it does. Republic in its review wrote, “Maidaan is a love letter to football, packaged in film reels. It is every bit worth the watch. You must however, be prepared for occasional periods of lull and montages of intensive leg work, which very well could have been edited out to make the sports drama a much crisper watch. That being said, Maidaan is a story that needed to be told - and more importantly, heard.”
