✔     Introduction


Hello Friends, I hope you are doing fine and are having a good time on bitlanders. Today I have come up with my another new blog with the title of "Bollywood Movie Review - Dangal". In this blog, I shall review a Bollywood Blockbuster movie "Dangal". This movie is about an Amateur Wrestler who had the passion for this sport and wanted to excel and represent his country on international level.  However, he could not pursue his dreams due to his personal and financial reasons.  He kept this fire inside him and later trained his daughters for Amateur Wrestling so that they could do what their father wanted to do.  This movie is about a father's feeling who wants their children to make their mark in the world and be extra-ordinary kids and serve their country.  This film was released in 2016 and was one of the biggest grossing films in the history of Bollywood Film Industry.  This film also managed to make a very good business outside India, especially in China where it became the biggest grossing film in non-English category and made a whopping US Dollars 200 Million business which itself is a record.  This film was directed by Nitesh Tiwari who is comparatively a new Director but has come up with a great film under the production company of Aamir Khan Productions.

It is the early 1980s and wrestlers are treated as local heroes. This is yet not the time for gym-toned bodies and common folks like to believe that wrestlers are physically superior to them. On top of that, Mahavir Singh Phogat is a former national champion. Now a government servant, Phogat, who wears a gold ring and a silver-plated watch, has a volatile temper and wants a son to carry his legacy forward.


Such sentiments have already taken Haryana to the wrong side of the gender equality debate by the beginning of the ’90s. His apologetic wife (Sakshi Tanwar) shows how you start liking your oppressor because there is nowhere else to go. Not so directly, though. Tanwar’s comic timing tries to deflect the focus from her life to the little girls who are forced to fight the local chauvinists because their father has decided to transform them into world-class wrestlers.
