Dangal movie review

The film, based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and directed by Nitesh Tiwari, released in the theaters today. Not only Aamir Khan but also his co-actors Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sheikh, Sanya Malhotra have done incredibly well in the film. Sakshi Tanwar, who is often seen as the ideal ‘bahu’ on Indian television soaps, like Bade Acche Lagte Hain and Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki, plays Aamir’s wife in the film.

Dangal is the stepping stone to Bollywood for Fatima Sheikh and Sanya Malhotra who play Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari.
