Story

Dangal is the story of Haryana based wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat who is a naturally born wrestler who dreams of making his country proud. However due to financial crisis, he fails to make it big after which he feels that his son will turn an international wrestler. Unfortunately, Mahavir will be blessed with four daughters and one day he witnesses the strength of his two daughters. The rest of Dangal is all about how they made it big in wrestling.

Dangal is completely about wrestling and the first half of the film looks entertaining and gripping. Though the pace of the film has been slow, the performances and the power-packed performances of the lead actors take the film to the next level completely. The first half of Dangal takes over the family emotions and it takes ample time to get you indulged into the film’s plot. The interval episodes make Dangal a masterpiece.

A sports biopic will sure be predictable and Dangal is not an exception at all. However the second half is all about the journey of Mahavir’s daughters how they work hard and end up at the International level makes the film. The climax and the emotional content strike a chord completely and are the major highlights of the film. On the whole Dangal is a must watch film because of the gripping narration and the power-packed performances.

Performance :

Aamir Khan who is known for his perfection worked with dedication and passion for the assigned role. He looked stunning and surprising in the assigned roles and his performance is the major highlight of the movie. Fatima Sana Shaikh has been stupendous on screen and her performance is the other highlight of the movie. Sanya Malhotra as Babita has been apt though she has been secondary in the assigned role. Sakshi Tanwar has been decent as Aamir’s wife however her role has been limited.

The story of Dangal has nothing new but it is the real life struggle of a wrestler who failed to make it big. The screenplay and the dialogues have been extremely convincing and will take the film to the next level. The cinematography is one of the major highlights of the movie. The music and the background score elevated the film well. The production values have been lavish and completely outstanding. Nitesh Tiwari makes it to the top with his outstanding narration.

Final Word

Aamir Khan strikes gold once again at the box-office with his latest outing Dangal which has been extremely convincing and gripping. A must watch film.

    Half Girlfriend Movie Review

    Half Girlfriend has a half baked plot which spoils the entire film. Half Girlfriend is better as a novel than to be made as a movie. The first half has been filled with characters which are mostly confused. Most of the episodes look faked and the love story too has not been well narrated. The interval episodes have been well showcased and the songs have been just ok. On the whole the first half of Half Girlfriend looks passable with lot of flaws and unwanted episodes. The second half of Half Girlfriend dips down completely because of the slammed screenplay and the poor narration. The emotional episodes lack interest and the songs turn barriers. The pre-climax episodes irritates the audience completely and a simple, predictable climax makes Half Girlfriend a massive debacle.

    Hindi Medium Movie Review

    Hindi Medium focuses on the lives of Indian couple and the challenges they face in the society. The film has been thoroughly entertaining and passable. Most of the episodes look realistic and they have been thought provoking. Most of the audience get related to some of them even atleast once during the film. With not much unwanted episodes, the first half of Hindi Medium has been good, engaging and entertaining. The second half of Hindi Medium too has enough ingredients to impress the audience however the film dips down at parts. The slow pace is sure a worrying factor however the film picks back again before the damage takes place. The climax looks decent and heart touching. It is Irrfan’s show all over that drives the film completely. On the whole the second half of Hindi Medium is completely decent.

    Meri Pyaari Bindu Movie Review

    The entire first half of Meri Pyaari Bindu has been fresh and engaging. The love story and the bonding between the lead actors has been well showcased. However as time passes the audience get bored with the repeated content and the episodes. The audience will be left surprised to wait to end up the love story. The songs have been extremely impressive and on the whole the first half of Meri Pyaari Bindu has been decent. The second half of Meri Pyaari Bindu shatters the dreams of the audience completely as the film turns a boring feast. Meri Pyaari Bindu’s second half is an emotionless yawnfest for the audience throughout. Some of the most interesting episodes have been narrated without interest and they make no impact. Once again the songs have been decent and the climax looks completely predictable.

    Sarkar 3 Movie Review

    The first half of Sarkar 3 starts with a power packed speech of Sarkar. However within minutes the film takes a huge down and turns extremely predictable. One who has been following Sarkar right from the first instalment will be left irritated with Sarkar 3 as the film offers nothing. All the major twists are completely predictable and the first half of Sarkar 3 is a huge disappointment with more unnecessary drama throughout.The second half too has been loosely executed and many unwanted episodes kill the interest among the audience. Some of the interesting scenes have been well hurried and Ram Gopal Varma fails completely in penning an interesting script for Sarkar 3. There are a lot of loose ends in the story, such as when an important character gets killed, there’s only one follow-up scene to it and no mention of it later.
