Look no further than 'Har Gully Mein Dhoni Hai', the new promotional track released by the makers of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.

'Har Gully Mein Dhoni Hai' has been composed and performed by Rochak Kohli (of 'Paani Da Rang' fame); with lyrics by Manoj Muntashir. If the beats of the song seem particularly compelling, then it's because Sivamani has provided the percussion.

In a clever tactic, the video for the anthem depicts neither MS Dhoni, nor his onscreen alter ego Sushant Singh Rajput. Instead it features all the regular people, all over India, who love and play cricket.

It shows the school boy who leaves his home at an early hour to make it to nets practice before school. It depicts a gaggle of girls who're excited about their upcoming match. It shows regular Indians — all over the country — in its bylanes and fields, on playgrounds and in building compounds, in cities and in villages, playing cricket and chanellising their inner Dhoni.

It's an ode to the great, grand passion this country nurses for cricket, and how the sport ennobles and enlivens so many.

But enough from us. Watch the video here, and tell us what you think:
