As perfectionist Aamir Khan is all set to come out with the second major wrestler movie of the year (after Sultan), its trailer has set a great tone for the viewer. All intensity and emotion, it has wowed everyone and people can’t wait for the movie to come out. Well, the guess over at Screen Patti were so moved and inspired, that they came out with a girl-empowerment story of their own – and if initial reactions are anything to go by…everyone’s loved this even better than the original!
The channel, which is known for its hilarious sketches, has taken the Dangal track and mashed it with the much loved cartoon The Powerpuff Girls. From the moment the video starts, it seems as if the two were conceptualised together (although, we do have one daughter missing in the VO, but that’s fine. It’s the sentiment, you see!)
The similarities between the two storylines, though, is uncanny. The proud father, the girls who need to, and can, prove a point and change the world, the challenge, the rebel, a cynical society — everything just simply matches! It seems, once the connection was made the guys over at Screen Patti went about meticulously collecting relevant footage to match the trailer, pretty much word-for-word.
Such was the reaction to the mash-up that even Fatima Sana Shaikh, who plays Geeta Phogat (one of Aamir Khan’s daughter in the film), shared the video with the caption: “This is so cool!!!! Powerpuff girls in dangal.” In fact, some have been saying that they prefer the mash-up to the original.
