The much awaited trailer of Aamir khan’s Dangal is online now. With yet another meticulously performed act, Amir Khan is back to entertain us this Christmas. Unlike Sultan, which was a love story of two wrestlers, Dangal is essentially an inspiring story of the wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who trains his daughters, Geeta Phogat nad Babita Kumari, to win gold in wrestling for India. The movie also manages to take a step towards women empowerment when Mahavir realises that his daughters are no less than any boy in the town.

Aamir looks convincing in both the phases. One is a young wrestler aspiring for a gold medal, the other is a middle-aged father who breaks gender stereotypes by making wrestlers out of his daughters.TV veteran Sakshi Tanwar fits in the role of his wife. You won’t fail to notice some rugged charm about the fierce daughters played by Fatima Sana Sheikh and Sanya Malhotra as Geeta and Babita respectively.

The trailer is simple and in-your-face. At some places, you’ll be forced to remember Sultan since the movie derives its roots from wrestling and Haryana, but at no stage will you feel that it’s not worth watching. Singing in the background, Daler Mehndi’s voice adds fiery energy to the wrestling scenes. Moreover, catchy dialogues like ‘Bohot Ho Gayi Pehelwani, Ab Hoga Dangal’ and ‘Maari Chhoriyaan Chhoron Se Kam Hai Ke’ offer the audience a true Blockbuster.

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal with the diligent Aamir releases on December 25th.
