Dangal is days away from release and it is already getting the buzz which is associated with some special films that make records and find a place in the best-of lists. On Tuesday, Aamir Khan held a special screening where Bollywood stars, as well as members of Mahavir Singh Phogat’s family, were also present. Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was also a part of the audience. While Aamir had already shown Dangal to a select few including Karan Johar and Shabana Azmi but this was the first time it was being watched by a theatre full of people.
Their verdict is out and the wrestling drama, which has women empowerment at its heart, is not just a winner but it is being hailed as an important film.
Filmmaker Shirish Kunder wrote, “#Dangal is the best film I’ve watched in a long time. And in all probability, will remain so for a very long time. Salute, @aamir_khan Sir!”
Film critic Anupama Chopra said, “What a film #dangal is !!! Such an important event for the women & sports in our country @aamir_khan inspires us again, spellbound & in awe.”
