Dangal is a brilliantly made film. Though it has a typical storyline, almost similar to other sports stories such as Chak De India, Sultan, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Mary Kom and Irudhi Suttru/Saala Khadoos. So what makes Dangal special from all these other sports films?
Dangal doesn’t have any melodrama, romance or unwanted song sequences. Dangal was realistic. It was very much focused on the amazing content and didn’t even leave focus for a second.Even though it was 3 hours long, you wouldn’t feel bored but would feel more inspired. All the actors did a wonderful job, be it Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra and even the child actors Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar, they played the roles as if they were really Mahavir Singh Phoghat and Geeta Phoghat and Babita Phoghat. The direction and the cinematography were brilliant. So were the dialogues and screenplay. The music by Pritam is a must listen, one of the best soundtracks.
This is what makes Dangal special from the other sports films. It is not easy to make a Sports film and Dangal has done done it. I highly recommend you to watch the film!
