So finally the first trailer of the upcoming biopic based on the life of wrestler Mahaveer Singh Phogat is out, giving us astounding glimpses of Bollywood’s perfectionist — Aamir Khan who is playing the wrestler in the film.
While the PK actor unquestionably steals the show, the promo has a lot more than just Aamir Khan and also gives us a sneak peek into what we will witness this December 23.
Here are 5 things that we absolutely loved about the trailer…
Despite being just about three and half minutes long, the trailer of Dangal doesn’t fail to inspire you with the story of former wrestler Mahaveer Singh Phogat. The promo beautifully encapsulates the man’s dreams and his passion for realizing them. It tells you to be undeterred by failures, take up challenges and to #playbold at every step.
It’s All About Women Power
The film traces the life of Mahaveer Singh Phogat and how he overcame all the societal pressure and conventional gender beliefs and trained his two daughters Geeta and Babita to become world-renowned wrestlers. So in that sense, Dangal, without a doubt, celebrates the power of women and tells you that nothing can stop a willing heart. The trailer is packed with many hard-hitting dialogues like “choriyan choro se kam nahi”, to drive the point home.
Aamir Khan’s Drastic Transformation
Aamir plays both the younger and older Phogat in the film and Dangal’s promo gives us a glimpse of the drastic transformation that this perfectionist has gone through to get into the skin of his character. In the beginning of the trailer we see the older version of the wrestler but towards the end we also get to see Aamir as the younger Phogat, and it is truly jaw-dropping.
The Girls - Fatima Sana Shaikh & Sanya Malhotra
The two debutants – Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra who are playing Geeta Phogat and Babita Phogat respectively in the film are very impressive in the trailer. If they could pack such an impactful punch in the trailer you can imagine what’s going to be in store when the movie finally releases.
Right from patriotism, women empowerment to motivation – the trailer is packed with dialogues that give you goosebumps and are inspirational. Sample this –
“Apna Tiranga sabse upar leheravega…”
“Gold toh gold hove hai, chhora lave ya chhori…”
“Missaalein di jaati hai beta…boli nahin jaati…”
Honestly, from scene one till the end, there is nothing that you can dislike about this outstanding trailer. So gear up for 23rd December, Dangal is definitely gonna knock you out.
