Dangal Movie Reviews
CRITIC’S RATING’S: 5/4.5
AVERAGE READER RATING’S: 5/4.8
DIRECTOR: Nitesh Tiwari
CAST: Amir Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya
DURATION: 2 hours 41 minutes
The film is bound to inspire more women to seriously consider kushti as sport. The historic wins of the Phogats, who brought India glory. 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.
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. It is to the film’s credit that though Geeta and Babita’s wins are documented, it still manages to engagr the viewer with the wrestling tournaments and bring patriotic emotions to the fore. What works wonderfully here is the writing.
Director Nitesh Tiwari, along with Piyush Gupta, Shreyas Jain and Nikhil Mehrotra should be complimented for their tongue in cheek quality, peppered with humour and several poignant father daughter emotion all though. An ungainly Aamir 22 kg heavier with grey hair is pitch perfect as the ziddi yet sensitive parent. And, the debutants Fatima and Sanya are easily this year’s best finds.
The 51 year old actor should be complimented for experimenting with his roles, unlike his contemporaries who prefer to play safe. When Mahavir Singh Pogat (Aamir), a wrestler from Haryana, loses hope of having a son, he trains his daughters Geeta (Fatima) and Babita (Sanya) to make wrestling history.
The Haryanvi rap hip-hop Haanikarak Bap and the Dhakaad number, are in perfect tandem with the narrative .Also the soft track Gilheriyaan. Music director Pritam and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya manage an earthy sound track with Daler Mehendi’s title track pumping up the adrenaline. The movie is superbly directed by Nitesh Tiwari, and Aamir Khan Production.
