Rating: 4/5 ✴✴✴✴
Director: Nitesh Tiwari
- What a film. I Ioved it. Happiness around. Smiles on faces.
Here is what the first half of Aamir Khan’s Dangal all about
- It’s an emotional moment. Dangal wins hearts. Thumbs up to Nitesh Tiwari
- So, Bollywood cliche once again touches the film but I strictly don’t mind
- Ok… She wins. What an ecstatic mood in the theater
- Geeta is going to turn the game. And people around me have already joined their hands to clap. But where is Aamir Khan
- This climax is reminding of Chak De! India, Sultan and all other sports films combined together. Silence in theater as Geeta struggles to win
- Forgiving this if this is something to have had really happened in the real story as well. The final game starts
- The story becomes redundant here, but I guess that’s what the masses like in general. They could have done without this typical twist in the plot.
Highlight: If a woman achieves something, she achieves it for all the women…
- This is the dialogue I was waiting for: Agar silver jeeti toh aaj nahi toh kal, log tanne bhool javenge.
- And Geeta WINS the semi-final. What a mood in the audience here.
- People around are cheering for Geeta and now I don’t mind either. My heartbeat rises as the game moves on to its last round. I so want Geeta to win, I know she will. But the wait is killing me
People are hooting and clapping for the on screen Geeta Phogat. Geeta wins the game and Aamir win the hearts here. The game is still on, though
The D-day arrives — Commonwealth Games. Feels like we are all watching the match live in the stadium
- And the rise begins once again…
- This needs to be heard again: Aparshakti Khurrana is a good actor. Let’s thank Dangal for bringing him out
- Whatever is happening seems perfect from a Bollywood-style drama. Though, I wonder if this really happened with the real-life Geeta Phogat
- The background music is what adds the maximum power to the narrative
- RJ Aparshakti Khurrana is another surprise of the film. He acts pretty good
- Here comes Bollywood in between. Too much predictability in the narrative currently
- Silent lessons in the film. You won’t struggle much to learn
- Emotions hit right here. I can see people shedding tears around
- Ok, I think there are more than required songs in the film. Not that they aren’t good, but were they really required?
- Did this really happen? A full emotionally charged up scene just rolled up on screen
- Yohoo… A father-daughter clash, a complete no miss part from the film
- Oops, where did the LED TV come from in that year?
So far, Aamir was the coach. Now he is the father
- Ok, so it’s getting difficult for me to review this sequence. I can’t see a father being treated like this
And that’s how the time flies. Bad part: to see Aamir Khan aging
- You say you don’t know about the tactics of wrestling? Aamir has done all your homework. So no worries
Dangal is giving some reality check here. Hint: the system and bureaucracy
- The rise of Geeta Kumari Phogat is here
Good part about the story — it’s not predictable
Dialogue: Dangal hit ho jayega humara. Well, it’s on the perfect track to do that.
- This man known as Daler Mehndi to the world, deserves all the praises for this powerful title song
- Probably the second best scene of the film… But so soon? This one is little preachy, though
- Oh and did we hear this track — idiot hai mera balma? It’s quite peppy
- One of the best scenes probably — Aamir is ‘cutting’ the stereotypes around women
Talk of women empowerment and feminism, it’s all here in Dangal
- Is Aamir Khan trying too much to look strict? Let’s see what’s in the package later
Apni maati ki humesa ijjat karna, Kyuki jitni ijjat tum maati ki karogi, utni ijjat tumhe milegi
- Aamir told me in the interview that Dangal is full of surprises. The humour in the film is one of these surprises it seems
- These two girls ate additional surprises. Good actors.
Pritam is a magician turned musician.
- ‘Chall… Chhoriyon se pit liya’… And there’s a deep meaning to this
- Oh! 101 nuskhe of how to have a boy
- Yo hain Aamir Khan… Ye jab shirt ‘pehente’ hain toh sitiyan bajti hain…
- Aamir shows his first Dangal move… And ‘claps’
- The scene says ‘now here’s the moment we were waiting for’. It’s indeed the moment we were waiting for
- Not just dialogues, but intelligent dialogues
- First look, first expression and you know Aamir is here to rule
Dangal is here. The very anticipated Aamir Khan film is all set for its big release on 23 December.
