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.

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!

On the whole, Dangal is not just a movie; it is an experience to be cherished. It is extremely engaging, brilliantly entertaining and phenomenally patrio­tic in its feel. It is as much a film for the young as for the old, as much for the classes as for the masses, as much for the city audience as for the viewers in small towns and villages, as much for the rich as for the poor, as much for the multiplex audience as for the single-screen cinema audience, as much for the men as for the women. It has special appeal for the ladies and it has terrific repeat value. To say that it will prove to be a blockbuster is to state the obvious. The film is destined to be one of the biggest blockbusters of Indian cinema. In fact, it can turn out to be THE BIGGEST BLOCKBUSTER EVER!

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.

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.'

n 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.

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.

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..

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).

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.

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.

  1. All time Blockbuster.

  2. please add other good reviews too.

  3. Dangal is a historical film, which got same the rating from Raja Sen and Taran Adarsh, and even more shocking is that both have given 4.5 stars. Historical.

  4. Dangal Movie Review-Santa Aamir is Back with its Xms Gift & This time OMG What A Gift,I can't give stars to this Movie as it is beyond My Aukaat,If Sultan is a Chinese phone then Dangal is Iphone-7,Poore saal ki Movies ke aagey aamir ki ek Dahaad hai pyaare Dangal ,Dangal,One of the Best Sports Biopic in World,Whether it is Acting by Young Phogat Sister to Child Phogat Sisters,Fatima Sheikh looks like a real Wrestler,What an acting Sirji,The Father-Daughter Bonding is shown in exemplary way,The Direction of Nitesh Tiwari,Crystal Clear Cinematography,Screenplay like Waterfall so Fast & holding,Aamir acting beyond words,So Impactful Dialogues & meaning like Ocean in Drop,Situational Songs,Every Department it shines like a Diamond,Highly inspiring ,I am running shor tof words so bas yehi bolna hai ki acchi hai movie hai to achha hi bolenge,Box Office result-Blcok Buster,Business-350-400 Crore Indian Ckt & 300 Crore Overseas,Bhaiyon Behnon Plz dekhe apne nazdiki cinemaghar mein kyonki aaj se Dangal Shuru

    1. I think there is nothing historical about this movie. It is a usual predictable movie that takes advantage over script's emotional elements. The classic desi feel of the movie makes it worth watching. The Wrestling and patriotism became most accepted themes of audience all these days. I think there are less dramatic and more influential movies in Malayalam. The fact that 'Amir Khan' the superstar is doing this movie makes it a hit partially. Most importantly, the movie that is marketed with scenes of colorful struggle for the movie makes it a sure hit before its release. This marketing strategy is also becoming so common among Indian industries. Making these movies that phenomenal will degrade the standards of Indian audience.

  5. Abe aur reviews add karo naaa.

  6. Dangal: An Entertainment package filled with emotion, patriotism, rides on high performance with dedication and authenticity of the sport

    On Comparison with sultan, this movie opens with the exact same dialogues from sultan about wrestling, and as we go forward this movie is not even close to sultan, sultan was more of a love story as this was about a journey towards gold medal and to inspire millions.

    I would like to applaud for the Authenticity in terms of wrestling showed in this film, This was NOT an Aamir khan film, it doesn’t happen every day that a superstar chooses a film which is not about him, surely he has done a splendid performance, but in the end the 4 women playing Babita and Geeta (young and old) takes away the film.

    This movie was not based on a specific person or about wrestling but it was about a journey of Mahavir as well as Geeta Phogat to get a GOLD at the International Wrestling competition

    I am not going to reveal an Entire story like all reviewers do, I am going to highlight a part that touched my heart as well not give any spoilers

    Mahavir is truly a HERO to think that girls are equal to Boys (in that backwards society he resides in) as well trains them regardless of the million obstacles in the way while ignoring the norms of the society i.e., to think women as burden and force then to get married at very small age

    Story: The story was a let-down for being the extremely predictable throughout the movie, but I'm Stunned to see that even though due to its minute by minute predictable storyline, the Entertaining and unique way this movie was presented to the audience was one best part of the movie. In other words “story telling” was better than the story itself

    Performance: Aamir once again does a sublime job, his dedication skills are unbeaten and this will surely be one of the best performances till date. On the other hand, the women reprising Geeta and Babita has put out their heart in the movie, their presence was not only admired but their acting skills are matched with Aamir. Sakshi Tanwar, though had repetitive dialogues and very less screen time her presence is felt in this movie as well

    In the end, a little bit of advice, to understand and enjoy this movie thoroughly, a bit information about wrestling is very much needed, I personally have interest in sports (only watching) if I wouldn’t know anything about wrestling, technicality in this movie would be a little hard to get

    A GO! If you are looking for Entertainment with some emotions to get a little inspired, as even with an anticipated story it doesn't make us feel tiresome for even a moment, not the best sport biographical film, but the best performance till date in the same genre

  7. please add filmfare 5stars review!!

  8. why is Indian Express so off track, always !

  9. Add bollywoodlife.com's review

  10. one of the best movie evr👌
    My rating my rating 4.667
    Speechless movie..

    1. bhai kaise nikali aise rating...:P
      anyways its a gud movie

  11. The above review is the most authentic and true review of the film. I have watched the movie yesterday and it's a simply superb sports theme oriented film brilliantly executed by Aamir and his team. The film is truly inspirational.
    The plus points are :
    1. Performance of all cast including Amir, Sakshi, their daughters and the whole theme
    2.The typical Indian mindset for girl child
    3.The brilliantly peppy and humorous songs (Especially Hanikaarak Bapu, Dhaakad and Title song by Daler Mehndi)
    4.Some special moments such as Aamir and his daughter's confrontation.
    5.The girls fighting in Dangal with boys.

    The Negative Points:
    1. Film is a bit lengthy. Should have trimmed off some fight scenes in the second half.
    2.The second half towards ending showing too much emotions.
    3. The climax and closing was lacking a punch as similar other Aamir Khan films.
    4. Predictable climax.
    5 Could have done better editing and trim the duration.

    Overall 85/100

  12. दंगल:
    साल की सबसे ‘धाकड़’ फिल्म! [5/5]

    अपने अधूरे सपनों का बोझ अपने बच्चों के नरम-नाज़ुक कन्धों पे डाल देना; हमारे माँ-बाप के लिए कोई नया नहीं है, और ज्यादातर मामलों और मायनों में वाज़िब भी नहीं. सख्ती कब ज्यादती बन जाती है, कोई नहीं बता सकता. धागे भर का ही फर्क है दोनों में. लकीर के इस पार का पिता अक्सर उस पार खड़ा ‘हानिकारक खलनायक’ दिखने लगता है, पर तभी तक, जब तक बच्चों को अपने पिता के सपनों में अपना भविष्य देख पाने की नज़र और समझ पैदा नहीं हो जाती. नितेश तिवारी की ‘दंगल’ बड़ी समझदारी से इस टकराव का सामना करती है और इस पेशोपेश से जुड़े हर ज़ज्बात को परदे पर पूरी ईमानदारी से पेश करती है. एक ऐसी फिल्म जो खुद को ही सवालों के घेरे में खड़ा करने से न डरती है, न ही पीछे हटती है. इससे पहले कि आप के ज़ेहन में कुलबुलाहट हो, कोई न कोई किरदार आपके सवालों को अपने अल्फाज़ दे देता है.

    महावीर सिंह फोगाट (आमिर खान) किसी अलग सांचे में ढला पिता नहीं है. ऐसे पिता, जिनके मुंह से ‘शाब्बास’ सुनने के लिए बच्चों के कान तरस जाएँ, हमारे आस-पास बहुतेरे हैं. ऐसे पिता, जिनके भारी-भरकम सपनों को पीठ पर लादे बच्चे अंधाधुंध भाग रहे हों, हम सबने देखे हैं. कभी अपने पिता में, तो कभी बगल वाले शर्मा जी में. महावीर सिंह फोगाट को अगर कुछ अलग करता है, तो वो है उसकी जिद, उसका जूनून और परिस्थितियों से सीखने, सीख कर समझने और समझ कर संभलने का लचीलापन, जो उसके हठी किरदार में एक रोचक और रोमांचक विरोधाभास पैदा करता है. कुश्ती में मेडल लाने का सपना सिर्फ एक बेटा ही पूरा कर सकता है, फोगाट इस चाह में चार बेटियों का पिता बन चुका है. ऐसे में, एक दिन जब उसे एहसास होता है कि मेडल बेटियाँ भी ला सकती हैं, तो अपनी बच्चियों गीता (ज़ायरा वसीम) और बबिता (सुहानी भटनागर) को अखाड़े तक लाने में कोई ढील नहीं बरतता.

    फिल्म के दूसरे हिस्से में ‘दंगल’ कई परतों में खुलती है. गीता (फ़ातिमा सना शेख) को राष्ट्रीय खेल अकादमी में एक उजड्ड कोच (गिरीश कुलकर्णी) के भरोसे छोड़कर लौटते बाप की उलझन हो, शाहरुख़ की फिल्म और गोलगप्पों के बीच कुश्ती के नए तौर-तरीकों से पनपा गीता का नया आत्म-विश्वास हो या बबिता (सान्या मल्होत्रा) के साथ उसके वैचारिक मतभेद; बाप-बेटियों के इस ज़ज्बाती गुत्थम-गुत्थी से अलग हटकर देखें, तो कुश्ती को एक खेल के रूप में परदे पर प्रस्तुत करने वाली बेशक ‘दंगल’ सबसे भरोसेमंद फिल्म है. कुश्ती के गूढ़ दांव-पेंच यहाँ जिस रोमांचक तरीके से दिखाए और समझाए जाते हैं, उनका मकसद किरदारों या उन्हें निभाने वाले कलाकारों को परदे पर बढ़ा-चढ़ा कर ‘नायक’ की तरह पेश करना कतई नहीं रहता, बल्कि उन खालिस पलों में सिर्फ कुश्ती ही निखर कर सामने आती है. फिल्म का टाइटल सीक्वेंस भी इसी सोच की बुनियाद पुख्ता करता है, जहां असली दुनिया के असली पहलवान कैमरे के सामने खड़े आपकी आँखों में एकटक झांकते दिखाई देते हैं.

    ‘दंगल’ एक कलाकार के तौर पर आमिर खान की सबसे अच्छी फिल्म है. अपने स्टारडम को हाशिये पर रखकर किरदार तक ही सीमित रहने का हुनर उनसे अच्छा शायद ही किसी और ‘स्टार’ को आता हो. बात सिर्फ वजन घटा-बढ़ा कर प्रयोग करने की नहीं है, फिल्म के तमाम जरूरी हिस्सों और दृश्यों में केंद्र-बिंदु बने रहने का लोभ-संवरण कर पाना, हर किसी के बस की बात नहीं. अपनी पहली ही फिल्म में गीता और बबिता के किरदारों में ज़ायरा, सुहानी, फ़ातिमा और सान्या चारों ही आपको लुभाने, हंसाने, रुलाने और इमोशनली जोड़े रखने में कामयाब रहती हैं. फिल्म में अगर किसी का होना बहुत चौंकाता है, तो वो हैं साक्षी तंवर. साक्षी भले ही फिल्म में कैमरे का पसंदीदा चेहरा न रही हों, (आप उन्हें अक्सर बैकग्राउंड में ही देखते हैं) पर फिल्म की रंगीनियत में उनसे ज्यादा घुला-मिला, रचा-बसा शायद ही कोई और दिखता है. अपारशक्ति खुराना प्रभावित करते हैं, इस हद तक कि जैसे इसी रोल के लिए बने हों.

    आखिर में, ‘दंगल’ कमियों से परे न होते हुए भी (फिल्म का सोचा-समझा अंत थोड़ा असहज करता है) एक ऐसी मुकम्मल फिल्म है, जो मनोरंजन का दामन छोड़े बगैर अपनी सामाजिक जिम्मेदारियों की बागडोर पूरी मुस्तैदी से अपने हाथ रखती है. सच्चे किरदारों की सच्ची कहानियाँ परदे पर कहनी हों, तो ‘दंगल’ बॉलीवुड के लिए बाइबिल से कम नहीं. साल की सबसे ‘धाकड़’ फिल्म! देखने जाईये, अभी जाईये, पूरे खानदान के साथ जाईये! [5/5]

  13. Shubhra Gupta needs to retire now! She is too much of a cynic and her reviews are off-putting to say the least! Get rid of her please!

  14. Dangal is a good movie but not a great movie. I can't understand why all the so-called critics are going crazy and rating it 4/5,4.5/5 and even 5/5. Only one critic,Shubhra Gupta has given it what it really deserved,3/5. Overall its a good movie but nothing like PK or 3idiots.
    Some goofs in the movie- The film focuses on women empowerment and girls being equal to boys,but there is a voiceover by the narrator when Geeta goes to wrestle girls its something like "Geeta ne jab bade bade ladko ko dhool chatayi thi toh yeh ladkiyan uske saamne kya thi."
    Also if you check out the original clip of Geeta Phogat winning gold in the Commonweath Games it was quite a one-sided match and in the film it was over dramatised and its authenticity was taken away due to the "masala factor".

  15. Amzing sotry amzing role aamir team mmmm bst role babita & cousion brother so comdey"paisa full wasul" movie

  26. Dangal is not just a film but teaches a lesson to the son favouring society to trust and believe their daughters and encourage them to do the best. It also teaches us to use our brain to change plan in no time according to changing circumstances and realise the power of presense of mind. Every competition requires different strategy..just a fantastic time We enjoy while watchin.DANGAL. FULL 5 STAR. AAMIR IS PROVEN AS BEST AGAIN

  27. It's a OK movie which lack a good script, little predictable and not gud as chakde.thin story line. Gud sports choreography second half loose grip and nothing new
