Though his previous outings " Chillar Party & Bhootnath Returns " were decent movies but Dangal comes out as a champion. The key character of Dangal is the script. Brilliant.

First half of the film quite gripping & the second half is as riveting as the first half. The film has decent production values.
Well crafted & beautifully captured the stunning locales of Punjab & Haryana by Cinematographer Sethu Sriram.
Music of the film is composed by Pritam, songs like " Dangal " , " Hanikarak Baapu " & " Idiot Banna " are the best song from the film.
Lets Talk about Performance -
Hats off to Aamir Khan. He has put in a lot of hard work to get into the character, dealing with one of the most challenging character, who plays a wrestler is an absolute brilliant. He gives the character his own terrific edge, twitchy & tentative and surprisingly warm.

At the heart of the film stands Fatima Sana Shaikh & Sanya Malhotra , they takes giant strides and surrenders their self completely to the director's vision & delivers marvellous performance & steals the show with their sincere confidence. Brilliant.
Sakshi Tanwar does justice to her character in the film.

Aparshakti Khurana is a pitch perfect beyond brilliant.

Final Verdict - A terrific film in all regards,  captivating story line with elegant direction & Brilliant performances. MASTERPIECE !
