TRAILER REVIEW: Aamir Khan’s Dangal Trailer Is An Outright Winner!

Aamir Khan is back and how! The much-awaited trailer of his wrestling drama, Dangal, is out and packs a punch. Right from the first second, it’s evident that Mr Perfectionist, who essays the role of wrestler Mahavir Phogat in the film, has put his blood, sweat and tears into getting the Haryanvi accent and body transformation (from being a young wrestling champion to a father of 4 girls) right and Mr Khan, you have hit bull’s eye.

However, what makes this trailer an outright winner is the fact that Aamir SHARES the limelight with his daughters -- Zaira Wasim, Suhani Bhatnagar (both child artistes), Fatima Sana Shaikh (Geeta Phogat) and Sanya Malhotra (Babita Kumari) in this one, offering us an inspiring tale of women empowerment.

The story is set in Haryana where Mahavir Phogat, a wrestler, craves for a son, who can fulfil his unfinished dream of winning gold for the country, but destiny has other plans and he is blessed with four daughters instead. Although he loves them dearly, he feels that his incomplete dream can only be realised by a son. Why? Because in Haryana, wrestling is considered only a man’s sport.

However, an incident, where his young daughters beat up two boys because they abused them, forces him to change his mind and then begins the tale of determination and triumph.

Debutantes Fatima and Sana are committed to their roles and portray their parts with impeccable ease. The hunger in their eyes is palpable and their body language is that of wrestler’s. Kudos!

And then, comes the final scene where a buffed up, young Aamir is seen flexing his muscles just before he enters the ring. We can’t wait to watch the film.

P.S -  Comparisons between Aamir’s Dangal and Salman Khan’s Sultan are unavoidable considering both are set in Haryana and both revolve around wrestling, but looking at the trailer we are sure this one’s going to a story far removed from Sultan’s tale. Watch this space for as we will be back soon with comparisons between Dangal and Sultan.
