“Dangal is family movie based on the true story of a father who refused to bend and of the daughters he molded into champion wrestlers. An sports film in which the underdog becomes a champion, Dangal works because it is about so much more — an authoritarian but loving father and his determined daughters. Dangal is also about the exhilaration of excellence; the sheer joy of winning. And, most importantly, it is about the innate strength of women.” Hindustan Times review, 1/17/2017.
