Movie Info

Dangal ('Wrestling') revolves around the extraordinary life of Mahavir Singh, an ex-wrestler who is forced to give up his dreams of winning gold for India in international wrestling due to lack of financial support. He resolves to train his future son to one-day represent India in his passion sport. But destiny had other plans. Over two decades, Mahavir's faith in his dream dwindles as he is blessed with four children, all girls. But when his eldest daughter Geeta, aged 14 and his second daughter Babita, aged 12, bash up a group of boys from the neighborhood during an eve-teasing incident, Mahavir realizes his girls have the same talent he was born with. With hope restored, Mahavir relentlessly pursues his goal of transforming his daughters into world-class wrestlers. Forcing them to train with the village boys, Mahavir inspires them to fight to win despite the odds and to go for gold, no matter what.

Within that tight-lipped mask, [Khan] finds a hundred ways to communicate emotion. That's more than you can say for Dangal, a one-trick domestic sports drama that drags on for two hours and 40 minutes.

Let it never be said that if you've seen one inspirational sports movie, you've seen them all.

This feel-good sports drama based on true stories entertains and, more importantly, could empower young women to pursue male-dominated industries.

The sequences are wonderfully shot and choreographed, so much so that it is difficult to believe the actors aren't full-time wrestlers. And at the centre of it all is Aamir Khan. He plays Mahavir with practiced authority and impeccable timing.

I walked out of this film wiping away tears and feeling invincible. I felt I could wrestle down anything that hit me. How do you put a rating on that?

Dangal is the last major film to be rolled out in 2016 and Khan has saved the best for the last for his fans.
