Dangal

Released Date : Dec 23, 2016

Directed by : Nitesh Tiwari

Box Office : 385.68 Crores

Genre : Biographical, Social, Action

Dangal is undeniably Aamir’s finest performance till date. He is one of our own, an ordinary man with ordinary dreams, but quite an extraordinary means to achieve his dreams. The movie is a biopic of the Phogat family and narrates their struggle towards attaining a gold medal for the country. No damsel in distress this time. The movie JUST has three heroes-Geeta, Babita and the man himself Mahavir Phogat. The Villain? Blatant, cruel, in the face gender inequality. Mahavir Phogat, a wrestler fails to bring a gold medal for India at the Commonwealth Games. Hurt and inspired, he vows to realise his dreams through his daughters. Now begins a story of dirt and sweat. He trains them hard, despite societal pressures, to compete at the Commonwealth Games. For him, it is not (just) about participating, its all about winning!

Aamir Khan’s Dangal has its heart in the right place. An incredible script and powerhouse performances leave you impressed. Must-watch! Dangal is a rightly done sports drama inspired from a real story. Also sends out a strong feminist message.Dangal is inspiring, emotional and spellbinding. It is a ‘Dhakad’ film and a perfect end for 2016! A 4/5 for this. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Hindustan Times     Review By- Rohit

This could be Aamir’s best performance till date. Yes, even better than Lagaan. A man making his daughters chase his dream. He cries, frowns, gets angry, looks old and tired, but is definitely one of us. When he shakes his head helplessly, you see a father in him. When he gets into a brawl, he is the brother you always depended on. When he wants to see you win, you know you have to perform. It’s not just his pride, it’s yours as well.

Sport is at its centre but the essence of Dangal lies in the simple highs and lows of the people Tiwari chronicles.Unlike the overblown Sultan with a somewhat similar milieu, Tiwari's account of inspiring reality is lot more understated in its approach. Two of its most poignant scenes are its quietest too -- when Geeta weeps bitterly in the middle of heartbreaking haircut and Phogat's crushed look as he takes off in a rickshaw immediately after entrusting his daughter's fate to a snarky new coach (Girish Kulkarni).

Site: Indian Express     Review By- Shubhra Gupta

But this is clearly Aamir’s film. It wouldn’t have been made if he hadn’t green-lit it, and he brings to it the sincerity of purpose which makes it not just a starry vehicle, but a film which is about something, which has meaning, with a message which doesn’t overwhelm the telling. It could have easily turned into a vanity project, which is a clear and present danger. It could have been made more polished that it needed. But it stays real, because the star ratchets it up when required, and lets it go in the rest.. Source : Visit site for more

Site: NDTV     Review By- Saibal


A Bollywood sports biopic that gets nearly all its moves absolutely right, Dangal draws its strength from a blindingly luminous lead performance from a shape-shifting Aamir Khan. Dangal is the story of a Haryana man who dared to do the unthinkable. It is just as much the tale of a pugnacious girl who went where nobody from her tradition-bound village had ever gone. Dangal is the kind of sports film that usually eludes Bollywood. It knows the rules inside and out and meticulously plays by them without ever succumbing to dreary predictability. Dangal is an outright winner - a film that will pin you down and keep you in its grip all the way through. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Times Of India     Review By- Meena Iyer

In the story department, Dangal offers few surprises because Geeta and Babita's historic wins at the Commonwealth Games and following championships are common knowledge. However, this screen adaptation serves as a recap of their arduous journey and it vigorously recaptures their stubborn father's resolve to make them professional wrestlers against the odds. Since it encapsulates the historic wins of the Phogats, who brought India glory, the film is also bound to inspire more women to seriously consider kushti as a sport. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Rediff     Review By- Raja Sen

This is by far the most credible an Indian sport film has ever felt, with even the commentators getting in on the action, giving most of us a tutorial in how to watch the sport.Dangal teaches us where rainbows lie in wrestling, and while it is a celebration of true greats -- and true grit -- this isn't about one sport. India needs to watch this film for the way it puts the 'her' in 'hero.' Source : Visit site for more

Site: Hindustan Times     Review By- Anupama Chopra

Director Nitesh Tiwari hits the familiar notes of the sports film in which the underdog becomes a champion. But Dangal works because it is about so much more — this is a film about an authoritarian but loving father and his determined daughters. It’s about the immense personal sacrifices and rigour that sport demands — for these girls, long hair, nail polish and even pani puri were luxuries. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Bollywood Hungama     Review By- Taran Adarsh

On the whole, DANGAL is a masterpiece. A terrific film that stays in your heart and remains etched in your memory much after the screening has concluded. A brilliant film that restores your faith in Hindi cinema. Actually, it won’t be erroneous to state that DANGAL is the finest film to come out of the Hindi film industry in a long, long time and mark my words, it will be remembered as a classic in times to come. It blends drama, emotions, sportsmanship and patriotism extraordinarily… the icing on the cake being Aamir Khan’s towering act. This rich-in-merits film has a major advantage too -- the holidays ahead [Christmas and New Year] -- which will ensure a glorious run at the ticket counters. A must, must watch!

Site: CNN News18     Review By- Rajeev Masand

Dangal is not a perfect film, but then few films are. It’s overlong at 2 hours and 41 minutes, and it’s both simple and simplistic in places. But it’s a solid and satisfying watch, a well crafted look at what went into the creation of two sporting champions. It’s a film that makes the heart swell…when it isn’t pounding from all the excitement of the bouts. I’m going with four out of five. Source : Visit site for more
