Aamir Khan starring Dangal has been one of the most anticipated films of the year. The movie is set to hit theaters this week. A special screening of the film was recently held and Bollywood celebrities have given a thumbs up for the film.
Dangal offers few surprises because Geeta and Babita's historic victories at the Commonwealth Games and the following championships are common knowledge. However, this screen adaptation serves as a recap of his arduous journey and vigorously regains his stubborn father's resolve to turn them into professional wrestlers against odds. Since it encapsulates the historical victories of the Phogats, who brought the glory of India, the film is also bound to inspire more women to seriously consider kushti as a sport.
Music director Pritam and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya handle an earth-track soundtrack with Daler Mehndi's title track pumping adrenaline. Also, the soft track Gilheriyaan, the rap of Haryanvi and the hip-hop Haanikarak Bapu and the number of Dhakaad, are in perfect tandem with the narration.
