The phrase ‘don’t play like a girl’ is going to change into ‘don’t play like a man’ after you watch this new song from Aamir Khan’s Dangal. After giving a major throwback to our childhood with Haanikarak Baapu, Dhaakad from Aamir Khan-starrer is going to change the meaning of women’s empowerment for every one of you. With a powerful performance by Zaira Wasim (the actor who plays the younger version of Geeta Phogat in the film) and sensible Haryanvi rap by Raftaar, the song shows what people mean when they say girls are equivalent to men.
The song showcases the guru-shishya relationship between a daughter and her father. There is a sense of determination brewing within both the teacher and his student in order to achieve their mutual goal, which is to win a gold at Olympics for India.
While Geeta is a proud child, who is up for anything to make her father’s dream come true, Mahavir is a proud father who envisions his dream coming closer to his shelf.
Dhaakad gives you a similar feeling that you get when you hear Baar Baar Haan from Aamir’s hit, Lagaan. There is a certain kind of strength in lyrics, which have been penned down by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Each and every written word has got a life of its own onscreen and the synchronisation will surely send a chill down your spine.
After a long time, we see Pritam’s talent coming to fore, which makes us really happy. Written and directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal is a sports biopic based on the life of Indian wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat.
Apart from Aamir, the film stars Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh, who play the character of Babita and Geeta Phogat respectively, and are being famously called the Dangal sisters.
